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!
[Newest]I'm not an Aerosmith fan by any means, but what a great debut single this is. Steven Tyler's voice is fabulous.

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
[Newest]It is honestly the best song ever written. It hits me right in the heart, and reminds me of my childhood.

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!
[Newest]I don't know why I like this song so much. I just do. What a riff.

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.
[Newest]I sing this song at school all the time! It is so catchy


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.
[Newest]I love this song <3 Tyler rules in Cryin'

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...
[Newest]Should be number one, great song, unforgettable, tells a great story and has some great vocals

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.
[Newest]Just as the title suggests, this Permanent Vacation single is about a man who is mistaken for a woman because of the way he looks. Aside from its intriguing lyrics, "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" also features plenty of hooks and the use of sax, trombone and so much more. By peaking at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100, the song also gave Aerosmith their first top forty hit in almost a decade and inspired the film "Mrs. Doubtfire."

8Love in an Elevator
when I came on this list I thought this would be number 1. it is amazing

wolphert

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

jprg12

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!
[Newest]Heard this song in a hotel elevator

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!
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
[Newest]This is the best aerosmith song ever. Love it!

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"!
[Newest]My favorite song EVER


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

ballaboi17

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.
[Newest]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.

12Rag 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!
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.

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
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.
[Newest]The live version Steven Tyler did for the rehab centre makes this song just the best and most timeless piece by Aerosmith


14Jaded
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.
[Newest]It is Aerosmith in their last great hit! It is more up to date with the time (the year 2000) as it is more alternative Rock than their previous material, yet Aerosmith cranked out a great song with this! Should be in the top 10 too!

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!
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.
[Newest]Awesome vocals, should be AT LEAST top ten, I'd put it top 5 personally

16Kings and Queens
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.
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!
amazing musicianship. they need to start playing this live again.

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.
Minute long begining solo sweetest thing I will ever hear

baylorfan1990

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

18Toys In The Attic
An unappreciated classic.
Not as focused on meaningful lyrics as much as cool guitar and bass playing.
Classic song from a classic album. Definitely belongs in the top 10.

19What 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,
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.
[Newest]No Doubt Dream On deserves #1 Spot but this song definitely should be in there Top 5!

20Same 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.
Vote this song higher up the list please great guitar bass drumming and singing
