Trivia: Aerosmith
  • Black Sheep Hit: Multiple times, with "Dream On", "Angel" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing". They actually refused to play several of their songs in concert for years because of this.
    • Coincidentally, Mark Chesnutt's cover of "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" was a black sheep hit for him around the same time, as he was mainly known for his traditional fiddle-and-steel country, not covers of rock power ballads. In fact, said cover was by far his biggest hit.
  • Breakaway Pop Hit: "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" is from Armageddon. After 25 years, it was their first #1 hit. Also, their cover of "Come Together" from the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film.
  • Breakthrough Hit: "Dream On" from their debut album, despite being a Black Sheep Hit Power Ballad.
  • Fan Nickname: The Toxic Twins for Steven Tyler and Joe Perry; the L.I.3. (Less Interesting Three) for Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton
  • Name's the Same:
    • The rhythm guitarist is Brad Whitford. The West Wing's actor is Bradley Whitford.
    • Joe Perry shares the same name with an NFL Hall of Fame running back for the 49ers.
  • Throw It In: In "Nobody's Fault" you can faintly hear a squeaky door opening during the song's guitar introduction, just a few seconds before the rest of the band starts playing - according to Steven Tyler, this was due to a recording engineer unceremoniously walking in on a take, and the band left it in because they thought it was funny.
