No. 9: Aerosmith, ‘Aerosmith’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums
Was there a band that defined hard rock of the ’70s more than Aerosmith? The story of the band’s debut album success is an odd one as it never really peaked until several years later.
The band offered the singles ‘Mama Kin,’ still a live favorite, the classic ‘Dream On’ and ‘Make It,’ each of which earned some modest airplay. However, in 1976 after they had achieved some success, the group re-released ‘Dream On’ as a single and the album finally got the look it deserved. Add in songs like ‘Movin’ Out’ and ‘Walkin’ the Dog,’ and Aerosmith’s debut is truly a timeless classic.
