Bon Jovi Absolutely Butchers a Harry Styles Song in Concert
Watch his "Watermelon Sugar" cover if you think you can handle it
Published May 13, 2021For a man who rocks as hard as he does, it sure is funny how terrible Bon Jovi is capable of being live. You may recall that he pissed everyone off at Christmas with an awful cover of the Pogues' "Fairytale in New York." Proving his badness isn't seasonal, he's back with a new, unwanted cover of Harry Styles' "Watermelon Sugar."
As Stereogum points out, the performance took place at New York's Clubhouse venue last week, where BJ performed a benefit for Meals on Wheels and Project Most.
It was a lowkey affair for a good cause, so he certainly deserves a bit of a pass. Still, if you watch the video below, you'll note that Bon Jovi officially seems like he's fronting a cover band that would play at your local farmer's market.
Bon Jovi had been scheduled to tour with Bryan Adams last year, but it was cancelled due to the coronavirus.
JBJ covering Watermelon Sugar! I vote this needs to be covered more! Of course, JBJ did an incredible job. pic.twitter.com/DF6PBumy13— Jerry Braden (@Jerrybraden92) May 12, 2021
