I've always been fond of the song but I get why a lot of people didn't like it at the time. The Bounce era (for those existing fans who remember) was part of the early stages of the bands music deterioating from more traditional-sounding rock 'n' roll to a more radio-fiendly pop-rock sound to try and appeal to a younger generation and to stay relevant and "Misunderstood" pretty much epitomises that. Though some might argue that way of marketing themselves could have started as early as the These Days era.

As I've said before, I liked Bounce when it first came out and it's still my most revisited post-2000 Bon Jovi album . "Misunderstood" is not one of the better ones for me but I still enjoy hearing it on occasion, particularly the single version.

If I die tomorrow, have I said all I can say?
