AEROSMITH - New York, NY 1975

Next Generation To Take A Pass On Aerosmith
The Onion — February 11, 2008

BOSTON — In an address made to the rock-and-roll community Tuesday, the nation's children aged 5 to 14 announced their intention to opt out of being influenced, stirred, or otherwise affected by the rock band Aerosmith. "We are aware the classic American band has, since their rise to fame in the 1970s, repeatedly come out of nowhere to penetrate popular culture, be it with their 1986 comeback duet with Run-DMC, the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire, which prominently featured 'Dude Looks Like a Lady,' or their 2001 Super Bowl performance with Britney Spears," said a spokesman for the so-called Generation Z, 13-year-old Max Hersch. "But we are respectfully declining. No Aerosmith for us, thanks." When reached for comment, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler called attempts to evade the band "futile," adding that the rock quintet's influence over the young set is just one "Dream On" duet with Hannah Montana away.

Okay, Aerosmith wasn't the greatest band ever or nothin'. I suppose they've lived way past their use at this point; they probably did years ago. But still — listen to this before you make up your minds, kiddies, for this was the early, dirty, greasy, sloppy, druggy Aerosmith. Try it! You just might dig it!
