Aerosmith is only good if you're a 55 year old aunt.

WTF? Is there even a comparison? The Rolling Stones BY FAR. Aerosmith is a good band with a couple of good albums and hits but it's SO overrated.


Couldn't agree more. The only comparison or similiarity between the two can be related to the size of the lead singers' lips.

Aerosmith has never really been in the same league as The Stones.

Aerosmith are really just a Stones tribute act.

Ides Of March, Berlin, Atlas Shrugged, Oh My God, Silkworms , Down By The Ocean (Izzy), Soul Monster, Seven , The General , Thyme , Quick Song, Zodiac. You know you should believe!

Don`t particularly like either of them. That said Aerosmith have one great song with Dream on and Stones have 10-15 great songs, so Stones for me.

They were not that good in the 70s really. A few good funky rock riffs (Walk this Way, Get the Lead Out) but nothing outstanding. I believe they only became big because Americans were desperate for a homespun rock band. Americans during this period were listening to big British bands (Stones, Who, Zep, Purple). It wasn't good for the, collective ego. So America said, ''that is a band that plays blues rock; that singer looks like Jagger. Let's have them''. In Britain it didn't wash. Aerosmith toured Britain in, I think around 1975, and were laughed-off the stage.

Love both, but Aerosmith was my first favorite band, that gives them the edge for me.

The Stones are in my top 5, to be fair.

that goes for the other band too tbh.

“To the ones who are negative and want to see either myself or the new band fall on their faces, personally I can’t pass up an opportunity to upset so many of them in one quick swoop. I get misty-eyed just thinking about it."

Often wondered that m self in relation to the toxic twins. When Slash repeats that often-repeated anecdote about discovering Rocks at some girls house and ignoring the girl, I keep thinking that I would sooner shag the girl and throw the Rocks album in the bin.

Yeah after Jim Morrison died in '71 it kinda left a big void in awesome American rock bands. The Doors were, I read, one of the Stones' biggest American competition and were about as popular in the States as the Stones while Morrison was alive.

And the Byrds broke up, '73. Tyler and Perry actually discuss the odd situation in their biography. You had this paradox of American kids, listening to British bands, playing American music! Kiss and Aerosmith were seen as the antidote.

You could throw ZZ Top in there, too.
