Slippery When Wet combined pop, hard rock, and metal in a way that appealed to everyone, especially girls. The album was more indebted to pop than metal and the band made no attempt to hide its commercial ambition. Part of the album's success could be attributed to Desmond Child, who co-write a pair of songs with Bon Jovi that defined their career -- "Living on a Prayer" and "You Give Love a Bad Name" -- two teenage anthems that mixed Springsteen's blue-collar narratives with straightforward, guitar-driven hooks. Bon Jovi smartly played to their strengths, shunning extremes for an accessible, middle of the road approach that wound up appealing to more fans than most of their peers.
