A/n: I do not own the lyrics or TMNT. I am using the lyrics for Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi in this. Bon Jovi is awesome, and I don't own them.

Raph groaned silently as the loud, horrible, music filled the room. It clashed and echoed around in his head causing him to let out a low angry growl.

Mikey smiled and mouthed 'Isn't this great?' Raph glared at the blond teen and silently vowed to take Mikey to a doctor to get his brain checked after this.

The music stopped and Raph looked up at the stage, where he saw Leo holding a cord that had been plugged into the speaker system. 'Just great,' thought Raph. 'Now Mr. Perfect is going to show them how to play, and then he'll lecture everyone.'

Mikey's grin grew wider, if that was even possible, and Mikey ran over to the stage and leaped up next to Leo and picked up a bass. He strummed it a couple times, and the previous people on the stage got off. Leo picked up a guitar and looked at Mikey. They nodded and Mikey whistled.

Don, D.J., and Marie appeared from behind stage. Marie looked at the instruments and smiled. She ran onto stage dragging Don and D.J. on with her. Raph saw Marie's mouth talking and he could only guess at what she was saying. Leo nodded and replied. D.J. nodded and picked up another guitar and Marie stood behind a keyboard, while Don tapped a few notes out on the drum set.

Raph raised an eyebrow. Leo began strumming softly and Don began tapping his drumsticks. It was a soft, light melody. It steadily grew louder and harder. Then it turned into a full-fledged rock song.

Once upon a time,

Not so long ago.

Tommy used to work on the docks

Unions been on strike

He's down on his luck it's tough

So tough

Gina works the diner all day

Working for her man

She brings home her pay for love

For love

She says, "We got to hold on to what we've got

'Cause it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not

We got each other and that's a lot for love

We'll give it a shot

We're halfway there

Living on a prayer

Take my hand we'll make it I swear

Livin' on a prayer

Raph tapped his foot in time with the music. He wouldn't admit it to Leo's face but Leo really could sing. Leo gave Jon Bon Jovi a run for his money. And they were all playing the music like professionals.

Tommy got his six string in hock,

Now he's holding in

What he used to make it talk so tough

Gina dreams of running away

When she cries in the night

Tommy whispers "Baby it's ok


We got to hold on to what we got

'Cause it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not

We've got each other and that's a lot for love

We'll give it a shot

We're half way there

Livin' on a prayer

Take my hand and we'll make it I swear

Livin' on a prayer.

We've got to hold on ready or not

You live for the fight when it's all that you got

We're half way there

Livin' on a prayer

Take my hand and we'll make it I swear

Livin' on a prayer.

They finished and Leo shot a smirk at the other band that had been playing. "And that is what real rock and roll sounds like." Raph groaned. Now Leo was going to lecture them.

Bon Jovi 4ever

"Do you play any instruments?" The question shook Raph out of his thoughts, and he looked over to see Jenny. She blinked her honey colored eyes. This had been the first time Jenny had actually talked around him. Her voice was soft and quiet, the opposite of her bright green hair.

"I play a bit of bass." Raph said, shrugging as if it was no big deal. Mikey popped up from somewhere and smiled.

"Good instrument, eh mate?" asked Mikey, pulling off a good Australian accent. Raph looked around for a trap door Mikey must have jumped up from, but could see none.

"How the 'ell didja get here?" asked Raph.

"Well… When a mommy and a daddy love each other very much, they go to-" Raph placed his hand over Mikey's mouth.

"Not wha' I meant," he growled. When Raph removed his hand, Mikey was grinning.

Jenny shook her head. "Well, maybe you should try and play with Mikey and the others sometime." With that said, Jenny walked off. Mikey began nodding his head vigorously.

"You, dude, are gonna have ta jam with us sometime!" Mikey said, bouncing on the balls of his feet. Raph shook his head and headed off to his next class, which only Marie and Nellie shared with him.
