Aerosmith is an American rock band that formed in 1970. Aerosmith are notable for building their success on a “work hard / play hard” philosophy, relying on heavy metal riffing and strung-out melodies to become one of the most popular and enduring acts in the history of rock ‘n’ roll. The name Aerosmith is a portmanteau of “aerospace,” a reference to the fact that the five band members met when they worked in an aircraft factory. Aerosmith later moved from New Hampshire to Boston, Massachusetts, where their shared interest in bands such as The Beatles and Aerosmith convinced them to start a band together at their rehearsal space. Aerosmith was signed to Columbia Records in 1970. Aerosmith’s first album, Aerosmith (1973), did not receive much attention and failed to chart, but Aerosmith released their sophomore effort Get Your Wings in 1974. The album was a breakthrough for the band though it still did not earn them any hits. Aerosmith became a worldwide concert attraction thanks to the album Toys in the Attic (1975), which produced Aerosmith’s first top ten single, “Sweet Emotion” and went platinum. Aerosmith rose to prominence during what is considered their classic era in the late 1970s and 1980s. Aerosmith reached their commercial peak with the albums Rocks (1976), Draw the Line (1977), and Night in the Ruts (1979). Aerosmith’s next three albums, Rock in a Hard Place (1982), Done with Mirrors (1985) and Permanent Vacation (1987) were also popular; their last studio album for nearly five years, Pump (1989), included several hit singles and was certified double platinum. Aerosmith’s renewed commercial success led to a string of hit albums throughout the 1990s, including Get a Grip (1993), which was their first #1 album in the U.S.; Nine Lives (1997); and Just Push Play (2001). Aerosmith has toured extensively around the world. In 1998, Aerosmith co-headlined the “Carnival of Madness” tour with Mötley Crüe, later releasing a live album of their own in 1999 entitled A Little South of Sanity.
