    Bad Medicine is a 45 rpm single by the American rock band Bon Jovi, released in 1988. It was the lead single from their fourth studio album, "New Jersey".   

    The song is a high-energy, guitar-driven rock anthem with a catchy chorus and a memorable riff. The lyrics describe a woman who is "bad medicine" for the singer, but who he can't resist because of the intense passion she brings.

    The B-side of the single features the song "99 in the Shade" which is a classic Bon Jovi track with a bluesy, Southern rock vibe. The song features a driving rhythm section, bluesy guitar riffs, and a catchy chorus that showcases Jon Bon Jovi's dynamic vocal range. The lyrics describe the oppressive heat of a Florida summer and the struggles of working-class people trying to make a living in a tough environment.

    99 in the Shade became a fan favorite and a staple of Bon Jovi's live shows, and its inclusion on the "Bad Medicine" single helped to further promote the "New Jersey" album. The song remains a classic example of Bon Jovi's ability to combine hard rock and blues influences into a unique and memorable sound.
