Aerosmith Appreciation

For being a legendary rock band, Aerosmith doesn't get talked about much here.

Are they overrated? Probably, yes.
Should they be mentioned in the same breath as the top-teir all time greats(Beatles, Zeppelin, etc)? Subjective, but imo not.

However, they are a solid band that has given us a plethora of great rock songs:

Dream On
Sweet Emotion
Walk This Way(especially the Run DMC version)
Kings And Queens
Back In The Saddle
Same Old Song And Dance
Toys In The Attic
Mama Kin
Angel
Dude(Looks Like A Lady)
Love In An Elevator
Janie's Got A Gun
Livin' On The Edge
Cryin'
Crazy
Amazing
Falling In Love(Is Hard On The Knees)
Taste Of India
Pink
I Don't Want To Miss A Thing(It's really not that bad)
Jaded(their last single that I cared for)

If you haven't given their 1997 record 'Nine Lives' a listen, you should. It was pretty much the last LP they made worth having. Later pressings of it included I Don't Want To Miss A Thing, though the song wasn't originally on it.

I was a pretty big fan growing up and let me tell you, I saw them live in 1998 and they put on one hell of a show.

Then I saw then perform with Britney at the Super Bowl and haven't looked back since. I think it's around that time that my U2 obsession really took hold.

Rocks
Nine Lives

Great band, awesome tunes. Supposedly one of the best live acts around as well, but I wouldn't know.

They had some amazing output in the early 70's. Listen to Seasons Of Wither and you'll see...

Nowadays they're not over-rated, they still bring it live, every single time. Simply awesome. I'm glad they explored their jazz influences on Honkin' On Bobo, it's an awesome collection. Come on, how can you not have fun watching Steven Tyler go nuts, plus he's a really awesome and nice guy.

Grew up watching videos for Livin On The Edge, Cryin, Amazing and Crazy on MTV. So naturally, Get A Grip was the first album I got! I know it's kinda uneven but I still like that album, probably more for nostalgia sake. Also enjoy Pump, Permanent Vacation and Nine Lives! From the early stuff, I only have Toys In The Attic. After hearing (what is actually a good song) Dream On eleventy billion times on the radio, I have no desire to explore their early albums.

Cryzamazing?

Yeah, it's almost like Aerosmith became a completely different band after Rick Rubin and Run DMC resurrected them from the dead.

Falling in love (is so hard on your knees) shouldn't be as good as it is...

that song I guess takes the roof off everytime in concerts...



"Love in an elevator" is just plain bad... yet, "Janie's got a gun" is theire best song EVER

Actually, it really is that bad.
As you say they are a legendary rock band, and recording that sappy garbage written by a professional easy listening song writer takes them down 6 pegs on the rock credibility ladder.

I have always been a fan, its tough not to be growing up near Boston, and as phanan mentioned the 70's were their hey day, the resurrection has had its high points (Pump) and its low (Super Bowl, Armageddon). They are still very good live, I last saw them a couple of years ago, have seen them 9-10 times total, and may see them in September...but I'd like to forget that the whole Diane Warren relationship ever existed. Rock bands write and record their own material. How would we feel if U2 started having songs written for them with an eye towards #1 singles?
