"Real Life" is a single by American rock band Bon Jovi, released in 1999. It is taken from the soundtrack of the film EDtv. A remix of the song is also present on the 100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong boxset. It reached the top 40 on the Radio & Records Airplay chart. At the time he was an unofficial member of the band, so this marked the only time that bassist Hugh McDonald is featured on a Bon Jovi release's artwork until 2016, when he was featured on the artwork for the This House Is Not For Sale single.
