You Give Love a Bad Name was Bon Jovi's first number one hit. It is from the album Slippery When Wet. The version used in the game is the High-Definition side on the DVD side of the DualDisc version of the album, similar to Livin' on a Prayer in Guitar Hero World Tour. However, the outro is only exclusive to the Guitar Hero series as no versions with the outro exists, although the band continues singing as Jon stops is from the original song before the song has crossfaded to Livin' On a Prayer.

Although the last half of the solo can be difficult if not practiced, the rest of the song is quite easy. Most of it is either a simple riff or sustained chords. The outro can be tricky and easily break a full combo, however.
