OMG- Awesome quiz. I love Aerosmith, and you have put together the best quiz! I'm going to try it later if I get a chance! :)

I'm not trying to bum out your quiz, or any prospective quiz-takers but, uh, Aerosmith kinda sucks. I mean, all the answers are: glorified bar band undeserving of all rock kudos who made a career of being a worse version of the Stones (swagger and strut, big lips, repetitive tunes) who hailed from Bah-ston -- who house the Red Sawx, by the way, my eternal enemies.

Jess, my sister said the questions are too don't feel bad if you don't know too many. But then again maybe you will know them all if you're a big fan :)

Mad, awww don't let your dislike of the Red Sox taint your view of Steven and the guys! If they really are just pretending to be the American Stones, they did a damn good job of it. I don't consider their music "important" by any means - but I do find it FUN and entertaining. Not everyone can be Led Zepp, Bruce or U2 ;)

Cool quiz, I'll give it a go.

I don't think the questions are too difficult. Besides, someone has already blabbered out one answer.

Maybe the songs in their chronological order, that could be tough. You have my curiosity on a few of these questions.

Aerosmith covers also "I'm Down" beatle's track. :)

... And also you can hear a bit of Hey Jude on A Little South Of Sanity (live disc) but just Steven singing a Capella
