The band releases, Runaway, from their self titled album. Bon Jovi about the video:

I hate videos. If you wanted to torture me you’d tie me down and force me to watch our first five videos. Five times you’re chump before you learn what you’re doing. The first time we’d just made a record and we were all excited and some a–hole decides we’re going to make a video for Runaway. So instead of making it about what the song’s about, he decides to put a concept to it with his little niece in it. It’s the worst piece of s–t I ever saw in my life. There’s a girl with like fire coming out of her eyes. They dressed the band. Richie’s wearing a jumpsuit and shoes that are three sizes too big. They kept squirting us down with this greasy solution to make it look like we were sweating. We all look like assholes.
