Aerosmith Songs in Mass Media [VIDEOS]
It got me thinking about all the great Aerosmith songs in movies and television over the years.
- Being a sports fan, I was first fully aware of Aerosmith’s power in 1999 when ESPN played its “Images of the Century” montage featuring the band’s hit “Dream On.”
- Then, of course, I started hearing them everywhere. Who remembers the film Armageddon, starring Steven Tyler’s daughter Liv as the female lead? I can close my eyes and still see that scene where Ben Affleck plays with an Animal Cracker on her stomach, Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” building in the background. For good measure, we’ve included both the movie clip and the music video below:
- And who could forget that hilarious song choice for Mrs. Doubtfire? I couldn’t find the exact scene, but here’s the music video nonetheless.
- How about television appearances? Of course you guys know Steven Tyler is a judge on American Idol. But have you seen this clip from The Simpsons?
- And just for fun:
