"It's My Life" is Bon Jovi's first single from the album Crush and was released on May 23, 2000. The song has many classic Bon Jovi features, such as Sambora's use of the talk box, and a line in the second verse "For Tommy and Gina, who never backed down" refers to Tommy and Gina, a fictional working class couple that Bon Jovi and Sambora first wrote about in their 1986 hit "Livin' On A Prayer". "It's My Life" is also notable for its line referencing fellow New Jerseyan Frank Sinatra: "My heart is like an open highway / Like Frankie said / I did it 'My Way'." The song charted in the top 10 across several countries and reached no.1 in Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland, but only number 33 in the USA. However, it has the distinction of making Bon Jovi the only band once classified as 1980s glam metal to reach the top 40 in the 2000s, a testament to how the song managed to introduce the band to a new, younger fanbase.
