Viral Video Puts Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ Back on the Charts

Thanks, Internet.

A viral video of Jeremy Fry dancing to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” at a Boston Celtics game that made the rounds on social media has caused the 1987 rock ballad to return to the Billboard Hot 100 charts, clocking in at number 25.

Billboard adds in the report that, after a 26-year departure, “Prayer” “returns with 94% of its Hot 100 chart points owed to streaming” and that “it sports an 11% uptick to 4,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.”

But the song isn’t the only one experiencing a comeback. The video itself was actually made in 2009, but it received a new upload to Utrend.tv on Oct. 17.
