Aerosmith has been one of the most consistently awesome bands in rock and roll since the 70s. Over 40 years of touring and living the rock lifestyle pretty damn hard hasn't slowed them down much. Sure, they've had some missteps (looking at you "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing"), but these next 10 songs prove that they're still rock gods.
One of the most famous contributions made by the band's lesser-known second guitarist Brad Whitford, this song is a live staple of their shows even to this day.
Aerosmith were never shy about the influence that blues music had on them, and with this song's simple riff and saxophone sections, it really shows.
What It Takes
After floundering a bit during the 80s, the band had a massive comeback with the album Pump, and this power ballad was its biggest single.
There's that blues influence again, this time on a song that's smooth as hell and has some of the best groove ever done by the band.
Everyone knows this song, and everyone loves this song. Eminem loved it so much he sampled it for his own massive hit, Sing For The Moment. It's a classic.
