The Top Ten

Dream On
I love Aerosmith! I was BY FAR BORN IN THE WRONG ERA OF ROCK MUSIC! I really wish I was alive to Steven Tyler, and Joe Perry H.O.T HOT! I've heard all these stories of how amazing singers and were just AMAZING! Anyone who thinks there a terrible band... Well what can I saw? They're deaf! No offense to those who really are.
The perfect song that made me love rock and roll... I was just a kid that was amused by the beats of hipsop songs, but this has opened my room of rock and in my heart and mind... Fantastic keep dreaming.. Love you aerosmith
this song is so inspirational I love it Steven Tyler is amazing in this song and the whole band is well ROCKING!
My All Time Favorite Song!

2I Don't Want to Miss a Thing
The most emotionally thrilling song for me... It gives the sense of importance that everyone should be awaken that they must not waste time to show their love and care to those close to their heart... Tyler gave life and sends out the meaning in a truthful manner by means of his unique style of singing with very potent emotional X Factor...
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. Way to go Aerosmith!
Great Song with awesome lyrics. One of the best rock balads ever
Not only the best of Aerosmith but also the best of all!

3Walk This Way
Why don't people vote for "walk this way? "This is the best rock song anyone has ever made! In my opinion, no band can play this song as good as AEROSMITH! Also nobody can top this song.
Classic aerosmith song. The whole album is awesome but walk this way is something beyond the realms of amazing this is AEROSMITH'S GREATEST SONG
Heck YEA! This is as good as it gets, the rocking guitar solos, great music, all around!

4Sweet Emotion
This was the song played on rocking' Rollercoaster at Disney WOrld, and it's always been my favorite song, the fact that it came on while I was on it totally blew me away.
Amazing guitar. I just can't get enough of it. I like this song because it shows just how good Rock can be. My father and I used to listen to this song a lot when I was younger, mainly because it was his favourite song. It makes me nostalgic and it just makes me want to dance. My favorite Aerosmith song.
Just a laid back song. Love the sounds at the beginning. Just makes you wanna roll a joint and chill.

I like it a little bit more than the other fantastic songs of this band.


Man, this song is a classic. It has been popular for ages and it is a great love ballad as well. When you start to listen it once, you fall in love automatically.
Best Aerosmith song that I have ever heard, it's my favourite, cause it's legendary. Fantastic, simply perfect.
More comments about Cryin'Listen to sample

Really, this is in my opinion the best aerosmith song ever. I wonder why no one else voted for this... Some of the best guitar solos by aerosmith, and a superb voice solo by Tyler!
I agree mane. My favorite song of all time. People underestimate Aerosmith's later work. They claim its nowhhere near better than their 70's work. Not True. Cryin and Crazy are classic.
Love the song... Can't stop listening... Best aerosmith song for me... It is really the best aerosmith song I've known

7Dude (Looks Like a Lady)
Absolutely amazing song. One of the best rock songs of all time!

Seriously this is the best song ever. It is full of rock and roll and I love it. This was the song that got me into rock and now I'm into heavy metal but I still listen to this every day (almost)

! I first heard this song in disney land paris on the aerosmith roller coaster and loved this song! First thought it said "Do the funky lady" #oops.

Anyways, this is amazing. And also, Walk this way comes second.

By the way: I don't think Janie's got a gun is very good.

BUT vote for Dude looks like a lady! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
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.

8Janie's Got a Gun
This is my favorite Aerosmith Song, So much passion and intensity! Aerosmith Rocks! This song comes from an era of Aerosmith when they were on fire.
My favorite! What a classic.. Can't stop listening it. One of the greatest songs of the 80's! Was a huge hit in 1989!
Gotta love that chorus!
1 of best songs by aerosmith, but not the best...

Brilliant, emotional, touching and very deep song from musical legends Aerosmith. This wonderful track should be in Top 5


Wow Angel is way too low Angel is an Amazing Song By one of the best Bands ever!

This is a Ballad of Emotion and it's fun to Sing along too!


This is by far one of the best Aerosmith songs! It should be in the first positions. "Walk This Way" is good but not as touching and smooth as "Angel"!

10Love in an Elevator
when I came on this list I thought this would be number 1. it is amazing


Okay, why the heck isn't this at number one? This song rocks!


This needs to be in the top 5! It's the greatest song ever invented! Keep voting till this hits the top! Cause it belongs no lower!

The Contenders

11Livin' on the Edge
"You can't help yourself from fallin" "There is something wrong with the world today and don't know what it is, There is something wrong with our eyes"
Just golden greatest song from them, I got the A with wings carved in my head


I've always felt that music was an art form and as all art it needed some meaning behind it otherwise it's just noise, this song has a meaning behind it. It also sound great and should be in the top ten songs of all time.
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.
-the lead singer
See, I don't even the lead singers name and I still ' love this song

YES their last great hit (which incidentally is almost 10 years old) by far has the coolest lyrics, bassline and drumbeat of any of their song


My dad and I were watching the snl where they preformed the song, and it instantly took us back to pre 9-11 era. Ever since this has taken over as THE amazing aerosmith song.
This song has always been around. It has a wonderful tone, very meaningful lyric, great instrument bits, and an amazing sound overall.

I don't understand why this song is 12, just listen to the lyrics and you'll see that is one of the best songs of this AMAZING band
Absolute lyrical and musical masterpiece. The instrumentals are amazing, so haunting and powerful, and Steven's writing here is BEYOND incredible. So passionate and emotional! Not just the words, but that "AMAZING" delivery that could come from no other. The raw feeling, coming straight from his heart and his pain, damn we can ALL feel it. This song IS feeling.
IN-credible song, no words. HOW ON EARTH IS THIS NOT IN TOP 5? The lyrics, music, passion, everything is just so beautiful, definitely one of my favourites.

14Rag Doll
Love it! I mean, I love all that Aerosmith has to offer, but when this song comes up on my ipod, I can't help but turn the volume up, get a little swag walk going, and "singing" along in my head!
This is my absolute favorit one. Love the groove and the catchy rhythm in it.. Its a quite simple song and I like that, its easy to understand get on your mind! The guitar riff is great and Steves voices just amazing to, as always. I think this songs a real masterpiece and it really deserves a higher rank!
The rhythm is so upbeat and so catchy. You can just get up and start dancing to this and it'll come so naturally. It's an amazing song. I'm surprised it's seriously NOT on the Top Ten!

15Back in the Saddle
How the HELL is THIS #20?!
Come on, all the vocals are AMAZING, Joe on a six string bass, and definitely the end, steven "RIDIN' HIGH! " that part had got to be one of, if not the best scream by Steven.
Although many of the songs here are great, this shouldn't be 20. Probably #3 or 4 behind dream on, draw the line, and maybe sight for sore eyes.
I don't want to miss a thing should be at 5, it's a beautiful ballad.
I just can't see how anyone can put this song at number 20. It should be number 1 no debate after back in the saddle it should be walk this way, dream on, I don't wanna miss a thing then dude look like a lady!
#17? Dude, what? My #2 favorite song behind dream on! Get a grip guys and vote for this aerosmith masterpiece!

16Mama Kin
I have always been blown away by the energy captured in this great song by one of the greatest Rock bands ever!
Minute long begining solo sweetest thing I will ever hear


Mama Kin is top 5 material. No more babbling, I'll just emphasize how wrongly placed it is in this list.

17Draw the Line
Steven's scream towards the middle of the song is the stuff of legends.
I'm honestly surprised this song didn't rate higher. Everything from the guitar intro to the lyrics is just classic 70s rock. I wouldn't rate it number one, but it deserves higher than #19.
This is the distillation of their greatness, and the insane screaming of Steven reaches the level of an apotheosis of Rock music. Crazy and unique, it's the Demon of Screamin.
More comments about Draw the Line

A brilliantly written song - it's in songs where Aerosmith has fun that they're the best!
Allusions to sex in what appears to be a straight ahead song about "my fav-or-ite col-or". Stimulating as hell.


Not my Favourite song by aerosmith, but I still think it's a very good song
Its very well written and well performed, Aerosmith are probably my favoutite band of all time
Very catchy and sexy song. This song always makes me sing along and it is just so much fun.

19What it Takes
Makes me want to cry every time I listen to it, ourstanding lyrics, holy crpa 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.
Great instrumentals (if not spoilt because of bad vocals) is what it takes to make a good composition.. The music may be simple, but its great :-) a Thumbs Up to Aerosmith! B-)
Make me think just tell me what it takes to let you go!, nice lyric very good emotional love song,

20Kings and Queens
Why ain't this song number one, or at least number 2 behind dream on... such an amazing song from the one and only aerosmith!
Definitely deserves to be in the top 10. Absolutely cracking song! I think perhaps it's not in the top 10 as it's so old so maybe a lot of people just haven't listened to this song. Just have a listen and you'll see.
amazing musicianship. they need to start playing this live again.

21Fly Away From Here
I absolutley love this song so much it makes me bawl like a baby every time I listen to it now do I think this is actually the best aerosmith song? No. That's impossible to choose one, but is this one of my personal favorites? HELL YES. I love you steven, joe, joey, tom, and brad!
Beautiful song, great lyrics... Yet again, from Aerosmith. Number 21 seems too low in my humble opinion.
Amazing song, amazing lyrics!... I love it so much!
This one should be definitely in the top ten

22Hole In My Soul
How is this not in the top 10? Right up there with Cryin' and Angel'! A fantastic emotional, power ballad!
This must belong to the top 10. A very heartfelt song!
Nice lyrics. In crescendo ballad. Couldn't believe it is so low in the ranking.

23Same Old Song & Dance
I like it because I can play it on guitar easier than everything else. I love everything from Aerosmith, but this is what led me to get my wings. So... I guess that's it...
Not a very well known song, but one of Aerosmith's finest. Fun song on Guitar Hero I.
This is one of my favorites. It jut keeps m in a good mood and its got a nice sound to it. I like it a whole lot.

28Train Kept A-Rollin'
This is the best song ever I can't believe this is 17 this shows how amazing Joe Perry can play there are like 6 solos in this song it is amazing. In my opinion this is the best Areosmith song ever made if not the best song ever made.


Despite being a cover is a great song and deserve a higher place in the top 10.

29Seasons of Wither
This is absolutely one of Aerosmith's best songs-just like all the others it rocks! Whose calling lately...
Those of us who are from the first generation of Aerosmith fans think of this classic in the top 5 list..
31 3! Fan in Colorado.

31Toys In The Attic
An unappreciated classic.
Not as focused on meaningful lyrics as much as cool guitar and bass playing.

32Walk on Water
Dude this song is an epic hard rock song! Needs to be in the top 20, at least!
When I heard this song I couldn't help it but get up and dance, VOTE VOTE VOTE till it hits the top, cause it deserves no lower!
This is an awesome song! I wouldn't say it's their absolute best song! But it's in the top 10 for sure, shouldn't be at 37! Come on people vote for this song cause it should be a lot higher! "
Just a brilliant song that should be way higher! I can't think why this isn't in their greatest hit's category, cause it's certainly one of them in my mind

35Last Child
TWENTY FIFTH PLACE?! This is classic Aerosmith. Not poppy-Aerosmith. I mean, Dream On is good, but the modern world over-estimated it. But Last Child remains my all time favorite Aerosmith song.
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. Last Child has to be at least in the top 5!
Rocks rocks! This song has an awesome beat to it, it's just a great tune. Can't believe it's this far down.

37What Could Have Been Love
What the hell is wrong with you people? This song is the best from their new album and is cleary one of their best songs. Steven Tyler still at his best
Sure it's Modern AeroSmith but I Actually Really enjoy this song!

42Nobody's Fault
The best track from their best album (Rocks). This song was so influential among then-budding rock musicians like Slash and James Hetfield that it's a crime to have this place at number 34.
One of my personal Aerosmiths best. The rocking style of Aerosmith is represented in this amazing song. Too bad we don't make songs like this anymore.
THEIR HEAVIEST SONG! Too underrated...

43Full Circle
I must agree that this is a very impressive song. Every second of it that passes makes me feel more and more fulfilled by the energy of this amazing group.
37th place?! It's way better than walk this way! You don't deserve to vote here people
45th?! Full Circle is definitely in my top 10! And Dream On is not even in my top 10!
