3468. Bon Jovi - Hey God

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61W7cERZ5NL.jpg
From: these Days; Year: 1995; Genre: Hard Rock/Alternative Rock
I believe I've said it before, but as I get older these Days has become my favourite album from Bon Jovi. A lot of it has to do with the rawness and purity within it; you'd expect to hear an album like this from a band's early years, but not a decade later after being established and through the pop culture machine.
Anywho, this is without a doubt the rawest and most "from the gut" song on the album. With the fact they were so raw musically and with there being no vocal harmony tracks it makes it quite gritty and in your face.

3461. Van Halen - Why Can't This Be Love

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71TZhh7CECL._SX522_.jpg
From: 5150; Year: 1986; Genre: Hard Rock
I had this song on my mind this morning, so I'm choosing it for today's pick. Whilst I wouldn't consider myself a huge fan on the band when I hear their music I normally turn it up and at least bob my head to the beat, which is the same with this morning. It would've been so easy back in the mid 1980s for them to have made this hit song a dyed-in-the-wool power ballad like a plethora of bands during the time were doing, but they went heavy with it instead, thank goodness.
