Dream On's neat, but that's about it really. They're annoying on the ears.
red hot chilli peppers
and have an impressive legacy.
But they're certainly better than Aerosmith.
but yeah, of course they suck. just look at 'em. their singer has always been a charity shop jagger, right down to the sexist song content. When did you just find this out?
but live, they're absolutely fantastic.
... last year. they were pants. endless bar room rock noodling. awful. Tyler does have his charm, tho whether that just stems from the fact he's fucking nuts or not i don't know.
Dream On is a massive tune.
bought Dude Looks Like a Lady (insert confusing brackets yourselves, I can't remember where they go) and that tune is ace. Lyrics might be a bit dodgy, on reflection. And obviously the Run DMC song has a certain amount of historical significance...
But yeah a band it is easy to forget ever existed.
With the exception of Liv Tyler, their output has always been pretty awful hasn't it?
Nothing to make fun of really, it's like saying Nickelback are overrated.
It's more like some American Idol type shit with a guitar solo.
...it's nasty. Comment was really meant to suggest that Aerosmith on the whole aren't DiS-friendly. That particular song isn't anybody-friendly.
That song is bloody awful. It's only useful if you want to make a semi-watchable edit of Armageddon: when that song plays, cut the scene.
close the thread here
if I remember correctly, that track wasn't written by Aerosmith, but by the same person who wrote My Heart Will Go. Unnacceptable.
They are America's greatest ever Rock n Roll Band for Me
Rocks, Toys In The Attic, Draw The Line are great albums. Permanent Vacation and Pump were both excellent too. Superb live band.
They have a ton of great tunes.
better, cooler, and they don't do shit like "dont wanna miss a thing'.
Aerosmith didn't write don't wanna miss a thing either.
Would you catch Dave Beard or Dusty in that outift? like fuck.
I bet you don't even look that good now.
my whole body hangs off these cheekbones though
Sweet Emotion, Toys In The Attic, Draw The Line< Lick & A Promise, Chip Away The Stone, Same Old Song & Dance, Rag Doll, Simoriah, Walk This Way, Mama Kin, Back In The Saddle, Kings & Queens, Rats In The Cellar, Sick As A Dog, Round & Round are all as good or better than ZZ Top's best work (La Grange, Legs, Cheap Sunglasses, Tush, Gimme All Your Lovin', Sharp Dressed Man, Legs, Just Got Paid) in my opinion.
but thats as far as I'll go.
I mean they might even have some great songs, but why waste my time investigating them when life isn't even long enough to look back into the REAL good guys, let alone keep up with all this new stuff.
Aint worth it
I'd say if anything they're possibly underrated. Or I would if they weren't complete shit.
most of the single people I know are really into their cheesy classic rock. I wonder if there's a correlation?
Classic rock and roll record. Or most of their 70s stuff to be honest. And a lot of the 80s stuff is great too if a little commercial and cheesy. Even some of the 90s stuff is ok.
In conclusion: no.
or the beatles
Everything they did sober (read 80s onward) = pure horseshit
Live in 1977
Especially Toys in the Attic and Rocks. Great classic rock records.
A very different band to the 'Don't wanna miss a thing' hit makers.
Aerosmith trivia....They made more money from Guitar Hero games than they did from any album.
are stone cold classics to my ears.
people are just rating the wrong bit of Aerosmith.
I don't rate them.
Click on my concert link above.
When I was a kid, with all due respect to Bob Segar etc, there were 3 great blue-based American rock 'n roll bands. Led Zep, Rolling Stones and Aerosmith. (Two that happened to be British, wtf)
Click on the link. Aerosmtih were fantastic and awesome and completely fucked up, like rock 'n roll stars ought to be.
I love some of those late 80's / early 90's tracks. Cryin', The Other Side, Crazy, Living on the Edge, etc - all classics. Tyler's also a phenomenal vocalist. Don't understand how anyone couldn't like Aerosmith tbh, they're an awesome band.
shut it down Theo
