The question has been asked- has Aerosmith sold out? Absolutely not. They have not and will not sell out in my opinion. I hear kids still listening to them as they drive down the street and have heard kids younger than I’d imagine talking about the band and how they enjoy the song ‘sweet emotion’ and more.
I think the reason Aerosmith has stayed so popular throughout the generations is because the fact that parent’s love them- listen to them and children then become familiar with the band. It has become somewhat ‘cool’ to like the band and somewhat of a trend among the young. I can’t wait to see if Aerosmith will still be popular when my youngest child has grown. I still listen to them, but not as often as I’d like. My older children listen to the band and while one if dire fan, the others don’t seem to have that much interest in them.
There are only a few bands out there that are truly the best of the best and consistently loved throughout the generations and I’d have to say that if there were a list, I believe that Aerosmith would be at the top of that list for sure.
