Latest update on 10/03/2015

Artist: Aerosmith
Author: Steve Tyler/Joe Perry
Label: CBS
Year: 1975

On lp Toys In The Attic. Run DMC weren't even sure if that was maybe the name of the band they sampled this guitar intro from.

Covers:

1986:

Run DMC [with Steve Tyler (vocals) and Joe Perry (guitar) contributing; the riff had recently become a regular among DJ's on New York block parties]

1992:

Hank Williams Jr.

1998:

Erik-Jan Hilterman [as Hoest]

2002:

Hayseed Dixie

2004:

Macy Gray

2007:

Sugababes vs Girls Aloud [charity for Comic Relief; n°1 UK]

Run DMC's cover put Aerosmith back on the map. Def Jam boss Rick Rubin likes both hip hop and heavy metal. That helps.
