Amerikaanse hardrockgroep opgericht in 1970 in Boston, Massachusetts: Steven Tyler (geb. als Steven Tallarico op 26-03-1948; zang), Joe Perry (geb. 10-09-1950; gitaar), Brad Whitford (geb. 23-02-1952; gitaar), Tom Hamilton (geb. 31-12-1951; basgitaar) en Joey Kramer (geb. 21-06-1950; drums).

Perry verlaat de groep in 1979 om met de Joe Perry Project voor zichzelf te beginnen. Jimmy Crespo vervangt hem. Whitford houdt het voor gezien in 1981 en richt met ex Ted Nugent-vocalist Derek St. Holmes Whitford/St. Holmes op. Perry en Whitford keren terug bij hun oude makkers in 1985.

De rapcrew Run-D.M.C. steekt Aerosmiths Walk This Way in 1986 in een nieuw jasje. Tyler en Perry leveren de vocale en gitaristische bijdragen.

Tylers dochter is actrice Liv Tyler, bekend van rollen in films als Stealing Beauty (1996), Armageddon (1998), Jersey Girl (2004) en de Lord of the Rings-trilogie.


Songtekst

There's something wrong with the world today
I don't know what it is
Something's wrong with our eyes

We're seeing things in a different way
And God knows it ain't His
It sure ain't no surprise
[YA!]

(Chorus)
We're livin' on the edge
We're livin' on the edge
We're livin' on the edge
We're livin' on the edge

There's someting wrong with the world today
The lightbulb's gettin' dimmed
There's meltdown in the sky
[aaaaaahhh]

If you can judge a wise man
By the color of his skin
Then mister, you're a better man than I
[Oh]

(Chorus)
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself from fallin']
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself at all]
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
[You can't stop yourself from fallin']
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
{Everybody, everybody}

Tell me what you think about our situation
Complication - aggravation
Is getting to you

Yeah,

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin'
Even if it wasn't would you still come crawling
Back again - I bet you would my friend
Again & Again & Again & Again & Again

Tell me what you think about your situation
Complication - aggravation
Is getting to you

Eehh,

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin'
Even if it was would you still come crawling
Back again - I bet you would my friend
Again & Again & Again & Again

There's something right with the world today
And everybody knows it's wrong
But we can tell 'em no
Or we could let it go
But I would rather be a hanging on

(Chorus)
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself from fallin']
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself at all]
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
[You can't stop yourself from fallin']
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
{Everybody, everybody}

Livin' on the edge
Livin' on the edge
Livin' on the edge
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Chorus)
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself from fallin']
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself at all]
Livin' on the edge
[You can't stop yourself from fallin']
Livin' on the edge

(Chorus)
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself, you can't help yourself]
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself at all]
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
[You can't help yourself, you can't help yourself]
{Everybody, everybody}
Livin' on the edge
