20. Kings and Queens (Draw the Line, 1977)

“Everyone knows this song! Anyone who is an Aerosmith fan at least. It’s on their Best Of album. It’s impossible to explain the sound of this song, it comes from nowhere. Just have a listen and you’ll see.”

19. Last Child (Rocks, 1976)

“I am an avid fan of Aerosmith and have all of their albums but this song hit me like a ton of bricks when I heard it. They were at their creative peak on this song which makes Last Child an amazing song. The guitar riffs are as hard rocking as it gets, the lyrics make no sense but they are always stuck in my head.”

18. Mama Kin (Aerosmith, 1973)

“As the first single off Aerosmith’s self-titled debut, this track helped introduce the band’s hard rock and blues rock sound. Though it didn’t make it to the American pop charts, “Mama Kin” has endured thanks to its mix of guitar riffs, solid backbeat and use of saxophone. And even though it was recorded in the early’70s, it remains a constant inclusion in the band’s live sets.”

17. Toys In The Attic (Toys In The Attic, 1975)

“The song opens up with a warm, endearing Piano and the song manages to keep the same level of emotional intensity throughout the whole song and Joe Perry’s guitar fits in with the mellow ballad perfectly. But Steven Tyler is the real standout here, this is up and away the best vocal performance I’ve heard from him, the vocals here just burn with passion and emotion.”

16. Jaded (Just Push Play, 2001)

“Just one of my favorites from Steven Tyler. The lyric is poetry and music itself is beyond perfection. I guess I don’t have to say that I’m big Aerosmith fan. It’s hard to believe that you can touch so many with your music and never know how much you mean to them!”

15. Same Old Song & Dance (Get Your Wings, 1974)

“Same Old Song and Dance” was penned by animated vocalist Steven Tyler and introverted guitarist Joe Perry. Tyler wrote the lyrics about Joe’s ball-bustin’ wife, Elissa. The rhythm ‘n’ blues song is driven by an infectious groove and accented by horns.”

14. What It Takes (A Little South of Sanity, 1998)

“Makes me want to cry every time I listen to it, outstanding lyrics, Holy crap with that solo is icing on the pie, the mountain dew of songs, the chords of a angel, with a interesting it at the end of the studio version. This song is just plain amazing, all the change-ups to rhythm and pace, plus excellent lyrics!”

13. Rag Doll (Permanent Vacation, 1987)

“Love the groove and the catchy rhythm in it.. It’s a quite simple song and I like that, its easy to understand get on your mind! The guitar riff is great and Steve’s voices just amazing to, as always. I think this songs a real masterpiece and it really deserves a higher rank!”

12. Back in the Saddle (Rocks, 1976)

“With its growly Joe Perry-penned riff, Steven Tyler’s yodeling and some equestrian audio effects, the heavy “Back in the Saddle” is a great example of the band’s combined musical talents. It’s also got some fine production work by Jack Douglas and an anthemic nature, both of which surely helped “Back in the Saddle” reach the Billboard Hot 100’s top forty.”

11. Crazy (Get a Grip, 1993)

“The song is a classic of the 90’s, the video, one of the sexiest and best videos of the 90’s too; the combination of that heavy drum with a middle time guitar and bass with a field sensation sound, is perfect with Tyler’s voice.”

10. Angel (Permanent Vacation, 1987)

“Brilliant, emotional, touching and very deep song from musical legends Aerosmith. I absolutely love this song..I love the emotional and tearful lyrics and tyler’s voice in this song is simply outstanding. This is a Ballad of Emotion and it’s fun to Sing along too!”

9. Livin’ on the Edge (Get a Grip, 1993)

“Best song ever, as I get older this song seems to mean more to me than any of their other songs! All his songs are fabulous but this one just has an edge over the rest. There IS something wrong with the world today but I think we are starting to learn what that is.”

8. Cryin (Pump, 1989)

“This song is unbelievably underrated. I didn’t even know about this song until years after I discovered these guys. It has so much more emotion than all their other songs and Steven Tyler really brings out a new level of emotion in this song.”

7. Love in an Elevator (Pump, 1989)

“What this song is easily in the top ten it’s so up beat and crazy its hard to not love this song. Fun lyrics and cool end section with loads of cool riffs thrown in. Its amazing just listen to it and you’ll get what I’m talking about”

6. Dude (Looks Like a Lady) (Permanent Vacation, 1987)

“Just listen to Joe Perry shred his guitar! It goes perfectly with Steven’s stressed vocals. Plus, the lyrics have a pretty funny story behind them! One of the best songs to use to pump yourself up, along with come on Feel the Noize (Quiet Riot) and Hammer to Fall (Queen). One of the best jams to come from the Bad Boys of Boston.”

5. Janie’s Got a Gun (Pump, 1989)

“This is the best Aerosmith song, it has the most meaning to it. Steven’s voice is absolutely amazing in this! The beat in the background and so on is so catchy. This song comes from an era of Aerosmith when they were on fire. Much love for Aerosmith!”

4. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing (I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing, 1998)

“I think this is the best song any band has ever made! This song makes you think deep into the heart, makes you think you should always love your soul mate in good times because you never know when something bad is going to come your way. This song is so wonderful and successful.”

3. Sweet Emotion (Toys in the Attic, 1975)

“Sweet Emotion has a timeless bass riff, great guitar work, and great vocal harmonies. And although Steven Tyler isn’t singing that high up in this one, I still like his deep groovy vocals. That guitar riff Perry does in between verses is one of my favourite guitar licks of all time.”

2. Walk This Way (Toys in the Attic, 1975)

“CLASSIC! A pure and wonderfully coordinated rap rock song! Run DMC and Aerosmith sound like they were made for each other! Pure beauty! And don’t even get me started on that catchy riff! Wow!”

1. Dream On (Aerosmith, 1973)

“This is the best aerosmith song with no doubt. The best instrumentation, the best lyrics, the best vocals add to the most beautiful,deep and memorable song from them. A single song is more than enough to fall in love with them.”
