Abstract (Document Summary)

Last week, Bon Jovi became the first heavy-metal band ever to score a "chart double" by having the nation's No. 1 single ("Livin' on a Prayer") and No. 1 album ("Slippery When Wet") in the same week.

On the LP list, "Slippery When Wet" held on to its title ahead of such strong challengers as the Beastie Boys' "Licensed to Ill," which repeated at No. 2, and Cinderella's "Night Songs," up from No. 4 to No. 3. And on the singles list, "Livin' on a Prayer" stayed on top despite a big gain by the Georgia Satellites, who zipped from No. 5 to No. 2 with the rockabilly- flavored "Keep Your Hands to Yourself."
