Songfacts®:

  • Written by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, this song came at a time when Tyler was struggling to come up with effective lyrics for the tracks on Toys In The Attic. The band told him to write about what he knew, so he come up with words about life on road - the hotels, groupies, and boredom. Tyler calls the song "my diary."
  • The opening lyrics, "Blood stains the ivories of my daddy's baby grand," relate to the piano Tyler would park himself under while his dad - a classically trained musician - would play.

  • Patrick from CaliforniaToys in the Attic was the first vinyl I ever bought with my own money. No more no more is for sure the best Aerosmith song, and one of my personal favorites of all groups. Felt like it written about my feelings of dealing with the world. Not only then, but even still today.
  • Doug From Altoona from Angeles CityOne of my favorite rock n roll songs. A classic song from the early Aerosmith days.
  • Jackie from Columbus Unpopular opinion: best Aerosmith song!
  • Gray from ClevelandGreat song. Underrated in my opinion.
