"Jon had died his hair in a strange blonde way for the shoot and fans still claim that it was his way of rebelling against the record company’s decision of forcing the song onto the album and ultimately even making it a single."

Had no idea people were saying that, neat!

"Many B-sides and outtakes from that era indicate that the band wanted to go for an overall harder sound with the Bounce record, however, rumours have it that the record company rejected an early version of the album and demanded more ballads to be put on it. This can be backed up by the tracklist of the later-on released promo EP “Target” which featured a lot of different and partly harder sounding tracks than the album."

Don't know if I agree with this theory. Of that EP, Breathe, Lucky and We can dance are some of the poppier side of the band. No Regrets and Standing I do agree with it. Had the album been Undivided, Everyday, The Distance, Another Reason to Believe, Standing, Bounce, No Regrets, Hook Me Up and Alive with less mid tempo songs I wonder if it would have been received better.

It is odd how Jon has totally forgotten this album even exists.
Didn't realise that not one song from this album made GH2.

Agreed. It was nice when Open All Night almost became a regular (but I'm one of the 10 that adore the song).

I'm still not a 100% sure why that was the case. I mean yeah, it wasn't the big success they had hoped for, but neither was The Circle and two or three songs from that album went onto the GH. So it might be due to Jon having been quite unhappy with the way the final record had turned out to be.
Also remember Richie's words after having left Bon Jovi:
"Bounce wasn't so much fun, but we still shoved it down everyone's throat."

Every day should’ve made GH2.

I think it's timing. Everyday made TLFR, Greatest hits with a twist because it was released directly after. I can't see them putting out a greatest hits and completely omitting the prior album's lead single, it makes it look like a total failure. Why it's still getting played, who knows.
