* NoPronunciationGuide: A lot of people mispronounce the band's name as "Arrow-smith" - it's pronounced "Air-row-smith".

** Strange case bordering on InNameOnly because Brooks' version was also heavily re-written to be about the thrill of being a rodeo rider instead of being a r-rated IntercouseWithYou song.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: Halfway through "You See Me Crying", one of their earliest {{Power Ballad}}s, Steven Tyler goes into a particularly strained falsetto that ends up making him sound like Donald Duck - it should (and does) sound silly, but somehow the music is epic enough to make it work.

* Also, some people don't like that they incorporated outside songwriters (from Desmond Child to Diane Warren and everyone inbetween) and accuse them of selling out.

** "Janies Got a Gun" and especially the music video for it which still packs a punch even today with the combination of sobering subject matter, stark imagery and emotional resonance.

* WinBackTheCrowd: One of the most famous examples in musical history. They were among the defining hard rock bands of the 1970's and had a massive influence on the then-fledgling heavy metal scene. However, the early-80's 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 Run-D.M.C. for a rerecording of "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-80's.
