Aerosmith and Kiss both hold special places in my Rock and Roll heart. As a result, they could easily switch places from 5th to 6th and vice versa on any given day of the week on my list of 100 Greatest Hard Rock Bands.
Both are fundamental in my musical education and grooming, but for different reasons. While Kiss is more about the Bombast, Show, and individual spotlights, Aerosmith is truly a group effort. Sure, more attention goes to the toxic twins of Tyler and Perry, but the success and popularity of this Rock Band has always been a sum of all their parts.
There is no "I" in Team, but in this group's case, a little "I... love drugs," didn't help things either!
