Best Aerosmith Songs

The very best tunes from 35+ years of Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and the gang.

The Top TenXW

1Dream 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!

The soul of rock, that's all.

2Walk 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!

This song made me one of the biggest Aerosmith fans

3I 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

I really like this song and

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.

Should be second after Dream On.

5Cryin'

I like it a little bit more than the other fantastic songs of this band. - i-love-rock-n-roll

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.

Excellent one my favourite

6Janie'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...

My second favorite Aerosmith song behind Last Child

WHY isn't LAST CHILD ON the LIST!?

7Dude (Looks Like a Lady)

Absolutely amazing song. One of the best rock songs of all time!

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

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.

8Love in an Elevator

Okay, why the heck isn't this at number one? This song rocks! - jprg12

when I came on this list I thought this would be number 1. it is amazing - wolphert

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!

Great song, not the best.

9Crazy

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!

Love the song... Can't stop listening... Best aerosmith song for me... It is really the best aerosmith song I've known

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.

Good lyrics, great music

10Angel

Brilliant, emotional, touching and very deep song from musical legends Aerosmith. This wonderful track should be in Top 5 - Irina2932

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! - Curti2594

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"!

I absolutely love this song..I love the emotional and tearful lyrics and tyler's voice in this song is simply outstanding.

The Contenders

11Livin' on the Edge

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.

"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 - ballaboi17

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.

This one really needs to be in the Top 10. Not a big fan of Aerosmith but this song is just so fun to listen to. - NuMetalManiak

12Rag Doll

The last single from Aerosmith's ninth record is a four-and-a-half minute number that blends elements of hard rock, glam metal and funk metal. But that's not all: thanks to Joey Kramer's memorable drum beat, Perry's slide guitar and some horns, "Rag Doll" peaked within the Billboard Hot 100's top twenty.

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!

Aerosmith's grooviest. Hell, maybe the grooviest song ever. Gets you moving every time.

13Amazing

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.

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

this is my mom's favorite band, and this one is her favorite song from them.
This song has something very special, any other song has such great feelings! - rock2metal

This song is really good. It's sad, but inspiring.

14Back 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!

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.

The greatest Aerosmith song. I love it

15Jaded

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 - ozlacs

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.

How can this garbage be listed as a

16What it Takes

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,

No Doubt Dream On deserves #1 Spot but this song definitely should be in there Top 5!

Best breakup song

17Mama Kin

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.

I have always been blown away by the energy captured in this great song by one of the greatest Rock bands ever!

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

I like the early stuff there first 1-4 albums

18Kings 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.

Everyone knows this song! Anyone who is an Aerosmith fan at least. It's on their Best Of album. This is definitely a top ten classic!

The King of Aerosmith songs. #1

19Last 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!

I actually find this song to be boring. It sounded like this song wasn't made in a studio and Steven Tyler sang this in a bar. Just an opinion. I will probably get a lot of hate for this.

This is the classic Aerosmith song... The riff is just too nice and gets you going...

20Draw the Line

Coolest song Aerosmith ever rocked! Steven Tyler's screams is what sets him apart from other rock singers. This song is a prime example of that ability. It's got my vote for what should be #1 on the list.

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.

One of the very best in a long list of fantastic/rocking' songs in the Aerosmith catalog
