This is not easy - while I certainly like a good portion of the 70s material, the 80s and beyond were absolutely unforgiveable.

Gee, I guess it is easy after all - CRAP

They are sick cheesy fucks. BUT! They somehow manage to capture a whole new generation of fans every decade or less. They are the closest thing to rock royalty America has ever produced. I take my hat off to them even though I won't listen to them.

i remember seeing a documentary some time back about the making of Pump. i was fascinated. it was like watching a lost art; a high profile veteran band going into a high priced studio and writing/arranging the songs on the clock, working out the parts, the egos. the studio point man (bob rock i think it was) chiming in, keeeping an eye on things, looking for the 'hits'. everybody with a hand on the fader during mixdown. nothing ironic about it. an example of the record label/studio system in full effect - like it or not. and i think that's a pretty good record for what it's worth. i hear they have some chick write their balads now, i don't know.

I honestly can't think of any band I despise as much as Aerosmith. Just about everything Steven Tyler does makes me want to kick his teeth down his throat.

Aerosmith is the worst band ever.

Definitively CRAP. No waffle factor.

Any band capable of producing six excellent records in a row gets a NOT CRAP from me. And I'm talking about their first six albums.

"Chip Away At The Stone" is a good song.

It's ridiculous how much they suck now, when contrasted with how good they could be inthe 70s.

They need to start doing coke again and quit doing Super Bowl Half-Time Shows.

Just listening to the first album all the way through... not crap. 'Rocks' is not crap -- going to give 'Toys in the Attic' a listen soon. Anyway, so far I say not crap. The early stuff cancels out the later crap.

Pretty crappy.

Some great songs though back in the day. "Major Barbara" is pretty fuckin' sweet.

Here's something that's perplexed me about "Dude Looks Like a Lady", though..........

That little noise(?) that precedes the "dude looks like a lady" chorus....

Is it just a blown note on a saxophone going "FLAH....FLAH.....dude looks like a lady"???

Or is it a weird, sampled, little voice saying, "THAT.....THAT....dude looks like a lady"??

Some girl in middle school always sang it like the latter and I always hear it as "that" now. Is it? Or is it a sax or something?

I swear, it's impossible for me to hear anything else.

What the god damned hell were you smoking.

CRAP, with a waffle factor of 8 for the high points of their 70s output.

This is a pretty tough call.

Reasons to not like them:

Steven Tyler
Many annoying songs.

Reasons to like them:

Contributing to the production of Liv Tyler
Many good songs
Some great guitar tones
Launching RUN DMC

I will go with NOT CRAP, WF:7

This is madness. Aerosmith, the band, had nothing to do with the production of Liv Tyler, and even if one wanted to argue that they somehow did, I fail to see its relevance to an assessment of their musical efforts. And Run-DMC were already well underway when they got a big crossover boost from that one song.

Marsupialized wrote:they have officially sucked longer than they were good at this point. actually that point probably came and went 20 years ago.

This is wisdom, though it should be noted that this situation does not in itself mandate a Crap vote. The key is weighing Awesomeness of Early Output against Duration and Intensity of Later Suckage. In Aerosmith's case, the latter predominates, as Marsupialized has correctly concluded.
