One of the greatest Aerosmith albums of the 80s and 90s. Released in 1993 and selling 7 million copies, it featured the hits "Livin' on the Edge" and "Eat the Rich" as well as three even bigger hits propelled by Alicia Silverstone featured in the videos: "Cryin", "Amazaing", and "Crazy." A milestone album marking the crossover between 80s and 90s culture, rock and pop, explicit and clean.

A played out 80's term that one would use and a Rank Out session. A weak response at best, someone would use this if they got cut down and didn't have anything else to say.
