While “Sweet Emotion” wasn’t Aerosmith’s first hit, it did set off a string of success for the band when it was released off of Toys in the Attic in 1975. It peaked at #36 on the Hot 100, becoming the band’s first in the top 40. This song actually has a pretty funky groove to it before the guitars kick in. It pops up nearly everywhere and is one of the band’s best known songs. It was also re-released in 1991 and was accompanied by an unnecessary music video.
