* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll: One of the iconic examples, though no drugs since their break-up and reformation in TheEighties. Not for nothing were Steven and Joe called the Toxic Twins. [[TheGratefulDead Jerry Garcia]] once said they were the druggiest bunch of guys he's ever met. ''Jerry Garcia.'' Think about that for a second. After he got clean, Steven Tyler reportedly said, "Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll. Get rid of the drugs, more time for the other two!"

The band ran into more problems in the late 2000s. Tensions arose as Tyler took time out to treatment for painkiller addiction and surgery as well as blindsiding the other members by becoming a judge on ''Series/AmericanIdol''. With Tyler & Perry at loggerheads things got to the point where it was reported the band were looking for a new singer, however the band patched things up, are working on a new album and completed a combined South America/Asia tour in late 2011. After recording and touring in 2012, and an ill advised appearance on ''Series/SixtyMinutes'' that threatened to re-ignite old tensions in the band, ''Music From Another Dimension'' their fifteenth studio album was released in November 2012 to mixed reviews before Aerosmith completed the second leg of their tour in December 2012.

2012. The band continued to tour over the next couple of years and Tyler released a solo country album in 2015. The band are currently not under contract to any record label. A sixteenth and possibly final studio album is under discussion and the band have embarked on what they say might be their final tour in 2016 - the European dates have been advertised as the final chance to see Aerosmith live in those countries.

%%* MohsScaleOfLyricalHardness: Mostly 4-6 given their reliance to talk about sex and hardships. "Janie's Got a Gun" is probably a 8.
%%* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: The ballads go from 2-4. The regular rock stuff is 5-6 bordering on 7 in case of songs such as "Toys in the Attic".

8 given it gets dark and murderous.

MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: The ballads go from 2-4. The regular rock stuff is 5-6 bordering on 7 in case of fast-paced songs such as "Toys in the Attic".

** "Falling In Love" borrows a lyric from TheRollingStones ("[[DoubleEntendre But you like the way I hold the microphone]]").

The band also starred in two video game thus far: the arcade LightGunGame ''VideoGame/RevolutionX'', and a ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' game with their namesake. Apparently, they have made more money off ''Guitar Hero: Aerosmith'' than they have off any of their albums.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: One may think this of the song "Eat the Rich," given that by the time ''Get A Grip'' was released the band were all multimillionaires, but it's ultimately subverted. The song rails against trust-fund babies who squander their inherited wealth, while the members of Aerosmith come from fairly humble, working-class roots and didn't become wealthy until the band hit it big.

* VocalEvolution: On the first album, Steven Tyler mainly sings in a lower, bluesier tone of voice, only sounding like his later, more high-pitched self when he breaks into a MetalScream near the end of "Dream On".

* UnfortunateName: Former managers Steven Leber and David Krebs, or Leber-Krebs. Their surnames put together translate to "liver cancer" in German, a point illustrated by the band in their autobiography ''Walk This Way''.
