Facts about Aerosmith
• Before using the name Aerosmith, the band wanted to name themselves Jack Daniels or Spike Jones.
• The song “Cryin” is about a roller coaster relationship that seemed great at first but then turned a lot worse. The video to the song was the first Aerosmith video to feature actress Alicia Silverstone, and it launched her career. She starred in Aerosmith’s next two videos as well : “Amazing” and “Crazy”, and has been in many movies since, including Clueless, The Crush, and Blast from the Past. Silverstone had met the band only once. Their scenes were shot separately.
• They have earned the nickname “the bad boys from Boston” and “America’s greatest Rock N’ Roll band”.
