LOS ANGELES (AP) — It looks like 1987 is making a comeback, because Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” is back on the charts.

Billboard reports the song is number 25 on the Hot 100 chart and number 5 on its Streaming Songs chart, 26 years after it was a hit.

It appears to be because of new interest in a three-year-old video of Boston Celtics fan Jeremy Fry dancing to the song during a stop in play.

The video was freshly uploaded to UTrend.tv in mid-October. The video has drawn more than 11 million views.
