Aerosmith Joined by Run-D.M.C.'s Darryl McDaniels Onstage in New Jersey
The song was a smash twice in its lifetime, and nearly 10 years passed in between each rendition. It was a hit for the Boston rockers in 1977 and also in 1986 when they collaborated with the Queens rappers on a refurbished version. Remember the video, when Tyler used his scarf-covered mic stand try and bash through the adjacent studio, eventually breaking through to the other side and mashing up with the hip-hoppers? It's a classic image of the MTV era, that's for sure.
Check out the photos from the live duet! It feels like just yesterday that this rap-rock collision took the airwaves and MTV by storm. It was certainly a partnership for the ages.
