100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong is a boxed set released in 2004 on Island Records. A collection of demos and B-sides, it was released to celebrate Bon Jovi's twentieth anniversary and the milestone of the band selling 100,000,000 albums worldwide.

The box set consists of 4 CDs, and also includes a DVD of the band talking about the tracks and additional archive candid footage of the band. Additionally, the Japanese version of the box set also includes a fifth CD. The box set charted at #53 on The Billboard 200.[4]

Apart from songs released as iTunes singles "The Radio Saved My Life Tonight" was released as a promo CD single for the box set.[5] and charted in Japan at #37.[6] The song was since played extensively on the bands following Have a Nice Day Tour.

The box set includes the songs "Real Life", "Edge of a Broken Heart" and "Good Guys Don't Always Wear White" all previously released as singles for soundtrack albums but never featured on a Bon Jovi album until now.

The title and the cover art is a play on the 1959 Elvis Presley compilation 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong.
