Best Aerosmith Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Dream On Dream On Cover Art

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!

Aerosmith is the greatest of all time
Not an opinion but a FACT

Aerosmith is fantastic, but to say they're factually the greatest is moronic.

2 Walk This Way Walk This Way Cover Art

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!

One of the most recognizable guitar riffs in rock... I've listened to Aerosmith for years and I'd have to say Walk this Way or Dream On is the best of the old stuff and Cryin' is the best of the new. You almost have to separate both time frames.

3 Sweet Emotion Sweet Emotion Cover Art

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.

When I saw the music video YouTube. It looked like it was from the 90s. But the song's from the 70s. So that's why it was in Dazed and confused.

4 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing I Don't Want to Miss a Thing Cover Art

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

This is the greatest song for many reasons to me. My little girl, who could not speak, heard me playing this song as we rode to various doctor appointments and therapies. One day, I was playing a CD and she started making the sound of breathing--I was alarmed at first and then it hit me--she wanted me to play this song. No other would do-she would shake her little head, "NO". It was one of the first great communication that we had. I will always treasure this. Now she is in heaven, but she is always in my heart and each time I hear this song it is a bittersweet memory.

5 Janie's Got a Gun Janie's Got a Gun Cover Art

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...

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. Much love for Aerosmith!

6 Dude (Looks Like a Lady) Dude (Looks Like a Lady) Cover Art

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.

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."

7 Love in an Elevator Love in an Elevator Cover Art

Fun lyrics and cool end section with loads of cool riffs thrown in

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

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

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!

8 Cryin' Cryin' Cover Art

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.

This is one of my most favorite songs ever I will listen to it at any given point in the day this song is amazing and everything is spot on about it. It was between this one and I don't want to miss a thing, but this song is a classic and the story holds true for a lot of people. You're awesome Aerosmith!

9 Livin' on the Edge Livin' on the Edge Cover Art

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

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.

If chicken little tells you that the sky is falling even if it wasn't would you still come crawling laugh out loud love this song so much!

10 Angel Angel Cover Art

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"!

This song is true masterpiece from Aerosmith. Steve Tyler's voice sounds incredible. I adore this wonderful track

The Contenders

11 Crazy Crazy Cover Art

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.

This and Angel are my two favorite Aerosmith songs and two of my favorite songs of all time. This song is so simple and so perfect. The riffs will have you in love and the lyrics are so relatable, if you've ever had someone you love and drives you Crazy, this song summarizes that feeling perfectly. Think I'm going Crazy just listening to this song, one of the best songs of ALL TIME.

12 Back in the Saddle Back in the Saddle Cover Art

Come on now, this has to be in the top ten at least. Definitely my favorite by Aerosmith.

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.

13 Rag Doll Rag Doll Cover Art

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.

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!

This (in my opinion is the greatest Aerosmith song) the lyrics seem to just come together in the best possible way, nothing can top this

14 What It Takes What It Takes Cover Art

This song is just plain amazing, all the change-ups to rhythm and pace, plus excellent lyrics!

It's hard to say what Aerosmith's best song is since they have so many good songs. This is one of my favorites, along with Don't Wanna miss a thing, cryin, and livin on the edge. No More no More should also be way higher up that song is so underrated.

Make me think just tell me what it takes to let you go!, nice lyric very good emotional love song,

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-)

15 Same Old Song & Dance Same Old Song & Dance Cover Art

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...

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.

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

16 Jaded Jaded Cover Art

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.

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!

17 Toys In The Attic Toys In The Attic Cover Art

Classic song from a classic album. Definitely belongs in the top 10.

An unappreciated classic.
Not as focused on meaningful lyrics as much as cool guitar and bass playing.

Needs to be higher

18 Mama Kin Mama Kin Cover Art

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.

Minute long begining solo sweetest thing I will ever hear

19 Kings and Queens Kings and Queens Cover Art

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!

amazing musicianship. they need to start playing this live again.

20 Last Child Last Child Cover Art

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.

Rocks rocks! This song has an awesome beat to it, it's just a great tune. Can't believe it's this far down.

21 Draw the Line Draw the Line Cover Art

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.

Steven's scream towards the middle of the song is the stuff of legends.

22 Pink Pink Cover Art

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.

It's just brilliant. The starting organ then tyler's amazing vocals... It really deserves to be in top 5 list, certainly.

this is one of the best song in the world mankind would be crazy if we didnt have this song

23 The Other Side The Other Side Cover Art

VOTE UP VOTE UP VOTE UP! This is the best aerosmith song by a long shot cryin' right beneath it but not even close how is this so underrated VOTE UP VOTE UP VOTE UP VOTE UP!

Best aerosmith song ever! I love don't wanna miss a thing and walk this way and cryin' but this song tops all of them. How is it sitting back here and not in the top ten? It truly rocks

Awesome song! Please please please listen to it!

Love it, It's my favorite aerosmith's song ever

24 Amazing Amazing Cover Art

Best Aerosmith solo of all time and this isn't on the top? Blasphemy.

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!

25 Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees) Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees) Cover Art

Awesome song, nice guitar and drums
With good Tempo, Nicely sung by Taylor!
