I have a love and hate relationship with Aerosmith. They have written some great and kick ass rock n' roll songs like Mama Kin, Sweet Emotion, Walk This Way, Back In The Saddle Again and even some pop-rock songs worth listening to like Dude Looks Like A Lady, Crying and The Other Side. I have never seen what's so special about Dream On but whatever, people seem to love it. As Martin said they have a cheesy aspect to them that annoys the hell out of me and I don't like Steven Tyler as a person or as singer all that much. I don't know what people see on Joe Perry that is so special, he's a great guitar player but not as amazing as people like to say he is. I loathe some of their records but I really like Honkin' On A Bobo, even though it doesn't do anything new worth those old blue songs covered by a shitload of people already and it starts with that classic dumbass Aerosmith intro, still it lets those guys shine and they do very well on them. It's obviously what they like to play the most. If Aerosmith ever releases an album with original songs that plays out like that one I'll definitely buy it! And I’m here patiently waiting for it as I got a feeling that some day (maybe the next record) they will deliver it. But if they do another one like Just Push Play or even like Nine Lives then I'll stay away from them.

Some bands are meant to be free musically and do experimentations with whatever they want to, like U2 and some other bands should stick to their guns and do what they know how to do best, like Aerosmith. Pump (which is a good album), Get A Grip and Nine Lives are obvious commercial attempts. And Just Push Play is just horrible. As I said I love and hate them, they wrote some amazing songs and I still think they can do it again but they have spawned those horrible hair-pop-metal bands with their poser attitude that I despise and for that I will never, ever forgive them! I have a friend who worships Aerosmith so I have to listen to him talking about them quite a bit.

I like them. I've actually been listening to a few of their songs a lot lately.

They are a good band, especially live. Cant say I'm a huge fan but there work up until after the Pump album was pretty good. They have written some great songs. I kind of see them as a junior varsity Rolling Stones.

I have seen them twice including last year on the tour with Kiss. I will say it was an interesting crowd. I think I had more fun people watching at that show than I did watching the actual show!!

Aerosmith rocks. Have had the pleasure of the seeing the band live twice and had such a great time. The Toxic Twins are really great songwriters, "Dream On," "Angel," "Cryin'," "Hole in My Soul," and then all the fun tongue-in-cheek stuff like "Pink," "Love in an Elevator."

And Joe Perry is stunning.

Aerosmith is horrible. I can't believe people still buy their records.

Aerosmith is a necessary ingredient in rock and roll....I think their survival instincts are to be commended. They battled personal problems and addictions, were strong enough to talk about it and how it made their music lousy, and they are still alive and kicking so they may enjoy life and more great music. I think they've written some classics.

I like some of their songs, especially "Sweet Emotion". I'm not a huge fan, however.
