Aerosmith is one of the most legendary bands in all of rock and roll. In addition to producing many rock love songs and wedding songs, Aerosmith has kept the members of the band together through good times and bad.
Led by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Brad Whitford, Aerosmith first hit the airwaves in the 1970s with “Dream On” and other classics that are still in frequent rotation on satellite radio and music television. This was followed by a resurgence in the 1980s thanks to a collaboration with Run DMC. “Walk This Way” became a crossover MTV hit that blended rock and hip-hop.
In the 1990s Aerosmith provided soundtracks for films like Armageddon, and the band was exposed to a new legion of young fans. With a career that has spanned more than 40 years it is no surprise that many modern couples turn to Aerosmith for a wedding song.
