Jon Bon Jovi Reminisces About the ‘Absolutely Awful’ Video for His First-Ever Hit ‘Runaway’

Bon Jovi’s self-titled debut album was released in January, and the band’s first single, “Runaway,” cracked the top 40 in February in spite of a music video that ranks as one of the most WTF moments of the early MTV era. “It’s absolutely awful,” says frontman Jon Bon Jovi, 52, who’s now able to laugh at the awkward performance footage of his band interspersed with shots of a young girl with a thousand-yard stare shooting fire from her eyes -- an homage to the Stephen King novel-turned-film Firestarter.
