    Has anyone seen this Icons show they've been airing on MTV? Well this past Fiday evening I went out drinking with a few friends from work. Get home and this Icons show is on and Aerosmith is the featured artist. They get to this part in the show where they say how "Aerosmith has outlasted the trends etc. etc. and all the wanna be posers had fallen by the wayside" or something similar to that. When the narrator said the "wanna be's" crack they showed clips of a bunch of 80s metal bands AND a clip of Van Halen(part of the "Panama" video!) [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] Needless to say, I FLIPPED [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] I think I actually set a new record in using the f word in one sentence. Even to insinuate that VH was/is ANYTHING like Aerosmith is a complete joke. Joe Perry HATED Eddie when VH1 came out because Ed flat out HUMILIATED his guitar playing. Ed said "hi" to him at a party once and the jealous jerk-off wouldn't even shake Eddies hand. But I guess due to the "current" state of things this is how the younger generation sees it. Aerosmith are rock and roll icons and Van Halen is a washed up one hit wonder poser band who can't find a singer they can work with. [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    I saw that as well and hit the roof when they through VH into that category of bands.

    I love (old) Aerosmith, but I think they've totally sold the band down the river to attract the "MTV kids". Can you imagine VH on stage with Britney & 'N Sync??? No f-ing way!! I think I would rather see VH do nothing than sell out to be Carson Daley cool.

    That was such a travesty.I swear Aerosmith is trying to make me not like them

    That was the worst!! Papa Roach singing "Sweet Emotion"?? I have nightmares about that.Train doing "Dream On" was the only good one out of the whole show.

    You think they could have had people who were actually influenced by Aerosmith.Kid Rock and Train were but Shakira?? Pink??? That was just a shame.

    And dissing VH like that was totally not cool.Whether or not you like Sammy and/or Dave they are both originals,there is no one like them.Tyler is a poor man's Mick Jagger.

    MTV is just trying to get back at VH still over the '96 thing. They should just get over it already, dumbasses.

    I saw that Icons thing a while ago, my friends I spent the whole time goofing on the performers and how lame Aerocrap is now. Papa Roach doing "Sweet Emotion" was quite possibly the worst rendition of that song I have ever heard, I've heard bar bands do it better. Eddie pissed on Joe's playing 25 years ago, did more in one album than Joe has done in his whole career. Screw him and screw that sell-out teenage nonsense shit they put out now.
