Aerosmith emerged out of Boston in the early 70s and gained immediate popularity with Dream On, the single from their 1973 debut album. By the middle of the 70s they practically defined American hard rock with albums like Toys In The Attic and Rocks. Bandleaders Steven Tyler and Joe Perry's history of substance abuse is notorious, with the two becoming known as the "Toxic Twins", Perry eventually left the band in the late 70s. The band soldiered on and a full reunion took place in the mid-80s, with a commercial resurgence to follow thanks to radio-friendly rockers like Love In An Elevator and Dude Looks Like A Lady.
