Bon Jovi release Bounce
Bounce is the eighth studio album by American hard rock band Bon Jovi, released on October 8, 2002 on Island Records.
Produced by Luke Ebbin, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, the album was recorded at Sanctuary II Studio in New Jersey. Bounce was heavily influenced by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, owing in part to Jon Bon Jovi's proximity to New York.
The album sold over 160,000 copies in the first week in United States, and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, making it Bon Jovi's highest debut in the band's history at that time. However, it's the band's only studio album not to be certified platinum in the United States.
