The horror! The horror!

Two things the world does not need more of: covers of Stand by Me, and songs by Jon Bon Jovi. Now we have both at the same time, in a combination of ultimate hideousness (1).

Not content with defacing a classic, St Jon delivers a message through the song, which is that, you know, all this hatred, war, terrorism stuff, it isn't good, you know. We should all, you know, stand. Together, okay.

It is sung in Farsi as "a musical message of worldwide solidarity with the people of Iran," Bon Jovi sharing vocal duties with Andy Madadian. Because, as history has shown, songs change the world. 'Give Peace A Chance' has stopped war forever.

Jon Bon Jovi, the David Hasselhoff of Tehran.
1 'Stand by Me," performed by Jon Bon Jovi and Andy Madadian, with others. Available through You Tube. (
