    umm, yes. I've heard it before. You made this a thread why?

    I want to see how many PFers recognize the song. It's general discussion.

    You think this is a "classic"? Wow!

    lol... I thought the same thing.

    Its funny how things that came out when I was in grade school are played on the "classic" rock station. I'm not that old! In fact, this song came out when I was in high school.

    I like the song well enough, but classic? To me, Aerosmith is a new band.

    Any definition is subjective. For me, a necessary (but not sufficient) condition is that the song be at least 25 years old.

    I generally figure 70s and earlier. A quarter century almost seems reasonable criteria though.

    So classic equals old? Your definitions suck.

    The term 'classic' implies that it has withstood the test of time.

    Speaking as someone who has lived to see the emergence of Rock and Roll from the heyday of R&B, Blues, Country, and Folk, I also have a pretty well-defined sense of what "classic" means to my generation. Eleanor Rigby, (Can't get no) Satisfaction, Mr. Tambourine Man, For What it's Worth, Mustang Sally, He Ain't Heavy, Bad Moon Risin', Black Magic Woman ... classics.

    Ever heard of the term 'instant classic'?

    Besides the song is 14 years old now.

    Versus songs that are twice as old or more that you can hear on the radio more or less everyday. That is what I would define as withstanding the test of time.

    Such as...

    You want to get rid of guests? Anything by Yoko Ono should do the trick.
