Bon Jovi release 7800° Fahrenheit
7800° Fahrenheit is Bon Jovi's second album, and was released in April 1985.
The album charted at #37 on The Billboard 200. It introduced the classic '80s Bon Jovi logo that would later on be used in Slippery When Wet and New Jersey.
Approximate sales were in excess of one million copies. The singles "In and Out of Love" and "Only Lonely" both charted in the Billboard Hot 100 (although both failed to reach the top 40 status of "Runaway" from the previous album), and still get occasional airplay on US AOR and hard rock format radio stations.
The album was remastered and re-released in 1998, adding the music video for "In and Out of Love" as a bonus track.
The band has essentially disowned this album in recent years because they believe the material presented on it does not match the standards set on their later releases. Aside from a few extremely rare performances of the song 'Tokyo Road' (all of which occurred in Japan), nothing from this album has been played live in almost 20 years since the conclusion of the Jersey Syndicate Tour. However, January 21, 2010, the Bon Jovi official website has announced that during The Circle Tour, from 2010 and 2011, Bon Jovi will play off of the 7800° Fahrenheit album, the first time in over 20 years.
