Jon Bon Jovi has always been a big name in classic rock, and is one of those names that's multi-generationally recognized. I challenge you to find me one person who doesn't know "Livin' On a Prayer." You can't.

I assume it can only be a song that his grandkids like, and to try and remain relevant with them and their generation, he's decided "I'll just start playing that too."

For comparison, this is the original:

But why would he do this?

The beginning of the video just makes them sound like a bar band who is trying to figure out how to play the song someone offered them $100 to play.

It's just not his style. Jon just needs to keep playing HIS songs, because they're the some of the biggest and most iconic songs in history. He has so many hits, but yet he's going to try and play something outside of his lane.

Hopefully this isn't one of those trends we start seeing of old rock and roll guys trying to play the songs the kids are listening to to be "hip."

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
