Aerosmith


The "Bad Boys from Boston". One of my favorite bands, and one with the longest career. They have had problems many times and somehow they've continued strong. Went to see them live last year and they still rock.

For me their best stuff is their early, 70's stuff. Their best album is Toys in the Attic, a definite classic. Since the 90's they have softened, but I think they somehow earned the right to be at that position since they had already proven everyone they rocked during the previous two decades. Well I also like their power ballads, which are good too if you like that style.

My top 5 songs:
-Dream On
-Sweet Emotion
-Walk This Way
-Last Child
-Love in an Elevator
(the order is just chronological)

  25. the aerosmith 'big ones' collection was the first cd i ever bought in 5th grade and i used to like their music so much, but they just don't resonate with me anymore. what i do enjoy a lot is their interviews in that documentary 'decline of western civilization 2: the metal years.' they're so funny in it

  26. I love aerosmith! I completely agree with you on your top 5 :)

  27. I'm not a big Aerosmith fan, they're pretty much just a rehashed Rolling Stones. But all those songs except the last one I like.

  35. Good top five. I like it, it's catchy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Good picks. #1 slot is a no-brainer of course. As a matter of fact I can't think of another band off the top of my head that has one song that is so clearly their best.

    ReplyDelete

  43. I really like Aerosmith. I still remember some shooting arcade game they were in. Damn I spent a lot of money on that game.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love in an Elevator, definitely the song I think of when I think of Aerosmith. That and that song from Armageddon, but I'm trying to forget that one.

  48. If you listen to the song Sweet Emotion, and watch a beautiful girl walk down the street, you will see what inspired that baseline. Oh laws, yes you will...
