** The Less Interesting Three get some good representation on the classic albums. On ''Get Your Wings'', Kramer co-wrote "Pandora's Box". On ''Toys in the Attic'', Hamilton co-wrote "Sweet Emotion" and Whitford co-wrote "Round and Round". And on ''Rocks'', Whitford co-wrote "Last Child" and "Nobody's Fault" and Hamilton co-wrote "Sick as a Dog". One could almost make the argument that Whitford and Hamilton are responsible for Aerosmith's highest moments on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness.

* BrokenBase: Some say the band was better when they were all on drugs (liking everything up to ''Done with Mirrors''), others say they started sucking in the '90s (liking everything up to ''Pump''), still others say they started sucking with ''Just Push Play'', still others like all their material. Also, with the recent fights between [[VitriolicBestBuds Steven and Joe]], the fanbase seems to be siding with either Steven or Joe. Also, Series/AmericanIdol: excellent PR move or terrible sell-out move for Steven? You decide.
** Also, some people don't like that they incorporated outside songwriters (from Desmond Child to Diane Warren and everyone in-between) and accuse them of selling out.

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: The band's sexually charged lyrics made them a Parents Music Resource Center target, leading to the removal of the lyric sheet off ''Pump''. An acceptance speech at the 1990 [[{{MTV}} VMAs]] had Steven saying "Thank you Tipper (Gore) and Jesse (Helms), for making sure that as long as there are a few four-letter words on the album, it'll sell an extra million copies!"

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: ''Where to start?''
** Here's a few good starting points: ''Toys in the Attic'' (the album), ''Rocks'', and ''Pump''. From start to finish. Hell, throw in ''Permanent Vacation'' for good measures.

* HilariousInHindsight: "Dude Looks Like a Lady". Look at Steven now.
** Also hilarious in hindsight from that, is Steven did a dance similar to the dance that Music/{{Psy}} did in his song "Gangnam Style."

** Even for fans, many were surprised to find that the 90s recording of "Sweet Emotion" was a ''re''-recording of a track from ''Toys in the Attic''.

* WinBackTheCrowd: One of the most famous examples in musical history. They were among the defining hard rock bands of the 1970s and had a massive influence on the then-fledgling heavy metal scene. However, the early-80s were anything but kind to the band, as nasty drug addictions and a string of mediocre albums temporarily doomed them to "has-been" status. But, in 1986, the tides turned. They collaborated with Music/RunDMC to rerecord "Walk This Way" (one of the first notable fusions of rock and hip hop), and 1987's ''Permanent Vacation'' further paved the way for a comeback. It finally happened with 1989's ''Pump''. Widely considered to be both their big comeback album and one of the greatest hard rock albums of the late '80s.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: The video for "Pink." It's... confusing.

* JumpingTheShark: Some would argue that Steven Tyler has done this. Others would argue that he's just giving his 60+ year old body a break by doing something [[Series/AmericanIdol nonstrenuous]]. Others don't give a shit and just dig the music.
