Aerosmith – “Eat The Rich” Live

Aerosmith – “Eat The Rich” Live | Society Of Rock Videos

That’s My Idea Of A Good Time!

“Eat the Rich” was the second single released from Aerosmith’s 11th studio album “Get A Grip.” It received a pretty good airplay on rock radio stations and easily became a crowd favorite especially when it was played as an opening for the band’s Get A Grip Concert Tour from June 1993 to December 1994.

  • Number 5 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks
  • Number 34 on the UK Charts

This song takes a shot at rich people who believe their wealth entitles them to look down on others. Aerosmith were indeed rich when they released this song, but they come from humble beginnings and can’t stand the condescending attitude of some rich people.

This song was put together by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Jim Vallance in Vallance’s basement studio. Vallance wrote the guitar phrase after Perry created the guitar riff for the track. Tyler also added the jungle rhythm using the keyboard.

The song features a heavy drum beat by Joey Kramer and clear, well-defined guitar parts by Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, as well as a strong bass groove by Tom Hamilton, and emotional lyrics (as well as an unusual belch at the end of the track) delivered by Steven Tyler.

So much passion in this live performance!
