AEROSMITH's 'Walk This Way' Inducted Into GRAMMY HALL OF FAME

AEROSMITH's "Walk This Way" is one of 25 recordings being inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame. The song was originally released as the second single from the band's 1975 album "Toys In The Attic", and was a Top 10 hit in early 1977. It hit big again when RUN–D.M.C. covered the song, along with AEROSMITH, for the rap pioneers' 1986 album "Raising Hell".

Continuing its ongoing commitment to preserving and celebrating timeless recordings, the Recording Academy has announced the newest inductions to its distinguished Grammy Hall Of Fame. The latest additions recognize a diverse range of both singles and album recordings at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance. Each year recordings are reviewed by a special member committee comprised of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts, with final approval by the Recording Academy's National Board of Trustees. With 25 new titles, the Hall, now in its 46th year, currently totals 1,088 recordings and is on display at the Grammy Museum.

"The Grammy Hall Of Fame is proud to be a pillar of musical excellence and diversity year after year, honoring some of the most iconic recordings of all time," said Neil Portnow, president/CEO of the Recording Academy. "We are proud to acknowledge the ever-changing landscape and evolution of musical expression for which the Academy has become known. We're honored to add these masterpieces to our growing catalog and are delighted to celebrate the impact they’ve had on our musical, social, and cultural history."

Representing myriad tracks and albums, the 2019 Grammy Hall Of Fame inductees range from "Walk This Way" to Miles Davis's "Round About Midnight". The highly reputed list also features Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree", Dolly Parton's "Coat Of Many Colors", Nina Simone's "To Be Young, Gifted And Black" and Tom Petty's "Full Moon Fever".
