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 records 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" and "Good Guys Don't Always Wear White" which were previously released as singles for soundtrack albums but never featured on a Bon Jovi album until now. It was thought that "Edge of a Broken Heart" was also previously unreleased but it was included on the Slippery When Wet 2-CD Special Edition Bonus CD (PHCR-90015/6) released in 1998.

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