In 1983, a local New York radio station WAPP 103.5FM held a contest in search of the best unsigned band. Bon Jovi used studio musicians to record the track "Runaway". After it won the contest, it became an instant hit in the summer of 1983.

In 1984, with the help of their new manager Doc McGhee, Bon Jovi's debut album, Bon Jovi, was released. The album went gold in the US and was also released in the UK. The group opened on tour for ZZ Top in the US, and Scorpions and Kiss in Europe. They also made an appearance on American Bandstand.

In 1985 Bon Jovi released their second album 7800° Fahrenheit. The response to the album was not good. Jon Bon Jovi himself later said it could have and should have been a better disc.

Bon Jovi's third album, Slippery When Wet, catapulted the band to supergroup status around the world. The album included the hits "You Give Love a Bad Name", "Livin' On A Prayer", and "Wanted Dead or Alive". The album has sold in excess of 12 million copies since its release in 1986.

Bon Jovi's final 1980's album New Jersey was released in 1988. The album was recorded very shortly after the tour for Slippery When Wet because the band wanted to prove that they were not just a one hit wonder. New Jersey is a Bon Jovi fan favorite. It includes the hit songs "Bad Medicine" and "Lay Your Hands On Me".
