Album Overview

Greatest Hits is a compilation album released on October 29, 2010 by rock band Bon Jovi.

The standard edition of the album includes fourteen of the bands hits and two brand new songs "What Do You Got?" and "No Apologies."

A double disc version entitled Greatest Hits – The Ultimate Collection was also released featuring a second disc of fan favorites along with two more new songs: "This Is Love, This Is Life" and "The More Things Change."

The four new songs were written specifically for this new compilation project. The font used for the band's name on the album's cover is a return to the Bon Jovi logo used from 1985 to 1988 and it is also the first ever album to use the heart and dagger logo.

Bon Jovi performed a special, live streaming concert for the Live on Letterman web series on November 9, 2010. The band performed a significant part of the album during the hour-long set.

Track Listing

The full track listing of the American and Canadian versions of compilation albums was unveiled on the official Bon Jovi website, which also offered the exclusive MP3 download "This Is Our House".

While the standard edition released in North America will have 28 tracks, the Australian and Japanese editions are set to have 30 and 31 tracks respectively. There are a few differences between the North American tracklist and the international tracklist. The main difference is the inclusion of "In and Out of Love" and "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead". Other differences include tracks from Keep the Faith album being present on disc 1 instead of disc 2, and "Blaze of Glory" being present on disc 2 instead of disc 1. The only album by the band not represented on either version of the compilation is Bounce.

The iTunes Store includes one additional track for the standard album download which is "This Is Our House" and given additionally as a pre-order-only track was "Raise Your Hands (NMS Live - 2010)". On the ultimate collection edition of the iTunes download, "This Is Our House" is included followed by the music video for "What Do You Got", a 10-minute track-by-track video interview, a digital booklet and given additionally as pre-order-only tracks were "Raise Your Hands (NMS Live - 2010)" and "Blood on Blood (NMS Live - 2010)".

Amazon UK and France lists "It's My Life (NMS Live - 2010)" as a bonus track on the standard digital edition, while Nokia's Ovi store in the United Kingdom and Ireland adds "When We Were Beautiful (NMS Live - 2010)" to both the standard and deluxe digital editions. Australia's BigPond Music and various European digital editions add "Keep the Faith (NMS Live - 2010)".

The Swedish DRM-based music streaming service Spotify got an exclusive single for unlimited & premium members, including Wanted Dead Or Alive, Livin' On A Prayer and Born To Be My Baby all tracks recorded live at the New Meadowlands Stadium in May 2010.
