This song was particularly inspirational to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. He told Rolling Stone
magazine: "When I went to my first rehab, at a place called Hazelden, I brought Exile on Main St.
on cassette. I remember waking up the first morning there and realizing I hadn't been sober once for the past 12 or 15 years, from LSD to heroin and cocaine and acid. The only way I could get a buzz at that point was to listen to 'Rip This Joint.'"
Bertrand - Paris, France
