TBT: Aerosmith’s Permanent Vacation Released 30 Years Ago Today.

Aerosmith

1987 was an epic year for rock. On the heels of Appetite For Destruction, and Hysteria turning 30, Aerosmith join the club today. Released August 30th, it was the band’s ninth studio album, and first to use outside writers.

Fresh out of rehab, and on the heels of a career reviving duet with Run DMC, stakes were high after their previous album Done With Mirrors flopped. The triple threat of singles “Dude (Looks Like A Lady),” “Angel,” and “Rag Doll” kept the band on the charts for well over a year, and the album eventually pushed to over 5 million copies by 1995.

Next on the 30th Anniversary train will be Whitesnake’s self titled smash. A deluxe edition will accompany the anniversary next month.
