Laser Bon Jovi

After ushering in the era of pop-metal with their hit singles “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Living on a Prayer,” and “Wanted Dead or Alive,” Bon Jovi grew out of the big-haired ’80s, to become one of the biggest American rock bands of their time occasionally hitting on the adult contemporary charts without ever turning away from hard rock, proving how they never lost their roots and became second only to Bruce Springsteen in defining the spirit and sound of New Jersey rock & roll.

Laser Queen

Start with a layer of heavy metal, add a dash of glam, a pinch of astrophysics, and sprinkle liberally with theatrics. Only then will you get a sense of what makes up the legendary Queen, the band that is often touted as being the most educated rock band to ever live. Freddy Mercury put it best when he said, “The whole point of Queen was to be original. We’re a very expensive group; we break a lot of rules, It’s unheard of to combine opera with a rock theme, my dear.”
