"Dream on," released in 1973, is Aerosmith's first hit single. The song established the band as a major act to watch out for in the '70s and has since become one of the most followed songs from that era. It has also been featured in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list.
"I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith
People who had never heard of Aerosmith also loved this song because of the movie "Armageddon." Released in 1998 along with "Armageddon's" soundtrack, the song almost immediately climbed to the top spot at the Billboard Hot 100, a first for the band back then.

Released in 1994, "Crazy" is a part of Aerosmith's hit album "Get A Grip." Its music video was one of the most requested ones on MTV that year. It also featured Alicia Silverstone and Tyler's daughter Liv, who made her career debut in it.
