Music: Bon Jovi, THIS HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE

artwork_for_bon_jovis_album_this_house_is_not_for_sale#1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, week of 11/26/16

What it is: The 13th album from New Jersey rock group Bon Jovi.

Last week I used Jeezy’s Trap or Die 3 as a metaphor for Donald Trump’s election,  but it looks like I jumped the gun, as a new Bon Jovi album is actually a much better symbol for a white working class yearning for bygone glory days (Jon Bon Jovi’s support for Hillary Clinton notwithstanding). Like Trap or Die 3, though, this record is just more interesting as a political analogy than as actual music; it’s all the studio-slick Springsteen-lite guitar stuff you’d expect, and the only part that really caught my attention was the weirdly overwrought imagery in the lyrics of “The Devil’s in the Temple.”

I’d pay good money for an artist’s rendering of this situation
