Still today, after all the shit I've been through and all the drugs I've done, I use my music the way I did when I first began. When I go out on stage, I use my music the same way--nothing else matters. - Steven Tyler, Aerosmith's front man
Submitted by: Isac
The light at the end of the tunnel could be you. I don't want to preach and say 'don't do it.' I just want everyone to know that I'm a survivor. I don't know if I would be sober if he wasn't sober or if the rest of the band wasn't sober.
- Steven Tyler - on substance abuse

Why do the members of Aerosmith go out on so few romantic dates? Because Steven Tyler insists upon singing "Dude Looks Like A Lady"
Submitted by: Jeff Williams
Steven Tyler is not "gay" by ANY means, but he does not go out on dates with women anymore. Every time he does, he gets mistaken for her grandfather. ( Joe Perry? Same thing. )

Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Love in an Elevator"
Misheard Lyrics:
Livin' it up live an angel
Original Lyrics:
Love in an elevator

Story about this misheard lyric by: Timi Zhuo

I heard about Aerosmith's hit "Love in an Elevator" but no one ever pointed out that that title was the song that was playing so I had no chance to put 2 and 2 together. A few years later someone happened to ask me if I liked "Love in an Elevator" and I said, "I don't know, how does it go?". After hearing them sing it and initially claiming that they were wrong and it was really "Livin' it up live an angel", it hit me like a brick and I quietly walked away.

'Cause even when I drink a few
The sweetest drink was Mountain Dew
I still miss Eubanks
And I don't want a Misty, thanks.
Original Lyrics:
Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
Cause I'd miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing.

Submitted by: Gus
The Funny Lyrics:
Pink when I turn out the light
Pink it's like red but not quite.
Why They're Funny:

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Dude Looks Like A Lady"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Dude looks like a lady
Why They're Insulting:
In this song, Steve Tyler is referring to Vince Neil of Motley Crue because he used to wear makeup in the 1980s like a lot of other hair metal bands (Twisted Sister, etc.) used to. But Vince Neil really looked like a female with all the makeup on.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"You See Me Crying"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
You say you're a ladies' man
Why They're Inappropriate:
Hmm... the rest of the song indicates that he is singing this to a woman....but maybe not.... Got a secret we don't know about, Stevie?
Submitted by: Zella
"Shut Up And Dance"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Sex is like a gun
You aim, you shoot, hah hah, you run
When you're splittin' hairs with Mr. Clean
It's like getting head from a guillotine
And the night has just begun
Why They're Inappropriate:
The gun analogy implies that Steven Tyler is singing about rape, which I find disturbing. And "getting head from a guillotine"? I really don't want to think about that.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Sweet Emotion"
The Dated Lyrics:
I pulled into town in a police car
Your daddy said i took it just a little to far
You're telling me things but your girlfriend lied
You can't catch me 'cause the rabbit gone died
Why They're Dated:
How long has it been since a rabbits ovarian changes indicated pregnancy? Side note: the rabbit always dies, pregnant or not because it had to be disected to inspect the ovaries.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Girl Keeps Coming Apart"
The Dirty Lyrics:
She's just a screamer
A nightmare dreamer
Yeah the girl keeps coming apart
She's like a call girl
Loose ends and all girl
But the girl keeps coming apart
White lace and leather
She's so together
But the girl keeps coming apart
I feel so sedated
Boxed up and crated
'Cause the girl keeps coming apart
Don't, don't, don't, don't, don't, don't
Let it get me down
Don't let it get me down
So there she was
Buns up and kneelin'
I was wheelin' and a dealin'
My ace in the hole so to speak
Why They're Dirty:
'Screamer' as in orgasms, 'nightmare dreamer' is open to interpretation, and 'keeps coming apart' refers to her spreading her legs open. Other references like 'call girl' aand such tell more of what she is. The 'boxed up and crated' implies that he wants to shag her but he has to wait his turn. Finally, the 'buns up and kneeling' says everything - she's ready for analingus. 'Ace in the hole', what 'hole'? Do the math.
Submitted by: California Cowboy 1987
"Pandora's Box"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Now I ain't what You'd call a city slicker Or claim to fame To be a slitty licker
Why They're Dirty:
A very obvious reference to cunnilingus. That made it onto the radio back in the day, somehow. Even the song title is dirty (box was and is in itself a well known slang term for something rather unprintable)

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

Same case with the Police submission by that other guy ("Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"): you're supposed to refer to people as "who", not "what/that."

"Sweet Emotion"
The Lyrics:
Some sweet-talkin' mama with a face like a gent
Said my get-up-and-go must've got up and went
The line should have been "must've got up and gone." However, "gone" doesn't rhyme with "gent," therefore the bad grammar.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Heroin and Alcohol"
In the 1970s Joe Perry and Steven Tyler were known as the "Toxic Twins" because both of them were addicted to heroin and alcohol.
In many interviews Steven describes himself as being a "survivor" not knowing if he would be sober if Joe and the rest of the band weren't sober.
