As tipped here in June, Bon Jovi is raiding its vaults for a forthcoming five-disc box set. Due Nov. 16 via Island, "100 Million Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong" will boast three discs of previously unreleased material, a disc of previously released rare tracks and a DVD of unseen film and video footage.

Among the vault tracks set for inclusion are "Gotta Have a Reason," "Why Aren't You Dead?" and "One to Say Goodbye." The set will also revive such cuts as "Real Life" (from the 1999 "EDTV" soundtrack), "Good Guys Don't Always Wear White" (from the 1994 "The Cowboy Way" soundtrack), the B-side "Temptation" and a demo of the 1994 No. 4 pop hit "Always" will also be featured.

The liner notes for "100 Million" will be bolstered with reminiscences from fans, which the band is soliciting via e-mail at tellus@bonjovi.com.

The project has been in development since 2003, when guitarist Richie Sambora told Billboard.com, "It will be the rarities that no one has ever heard before. Mostly, songs that we've forgotten we've written that we really liked and didn't belong on a particular album because it didn't go with the rest of the other songs on that record."
