Bon Jovi - 7800° Fahrenheit

On March 27, 1985, "Bon Jovi's" second studio album, "7800 ° Fahrenheit" was released

Here are 10 facts about the album that for a while was denied even by the band itself:

1. The name of the album was influenced by the book "Fahrenheit 451", which is a dystopian science fiction story by the writer Ray Bradbury.

2. Another version says that the album title refers to the melting point of a rock - 7800° Fahrenheit or 4313° Celsius, when the band intended to say - "American Hot Rock".

8. This is the band's only album in which there is writing credit for four of the band members.

9. The song "Secret Dreams" is the only one of all the "Bon Jovi" songs in which drummer Tico Torres received credit for writing.

10. Although quite a few songs from the album are loved by the band's devout fans, this is the album that received the lowest representation ever in the band's setlist during the years.
