Lower caption = "Eat the Rich" is a song performed by American
hard rockband Aerosmith. It was written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Jim Vallance. It was released as the first single from the band's 1993 album " Get a Grip". The song didn't chart on the Billboard Hot 100, but it did experience success on rock radio, peaking at #5 on the Mainstream Rock Trackschart. In the UK, the song peaked at #34. The band's next four singles and correlating videos, however, were able to garner more mainstream success for the album.
A fan favorite
The song quickly became a fan favorite, despite not having much mainstream success, and drew a rousing reaction from crowds when it was used as the band's opening song on the Get a Grip Tour. The band has played the song several times on their recent tour, the
Route of All Evil Tour, despite being generally limited to a 13-song setlist.
The song was featured on the band's
1994 Geffen Records-era greatest hitsalbum " Big Ones" as well as the first song on the live double-album " A Little South of Sanity".
The song features a heavy drum beat by
Joey Kramerand clear, well-defined guitar parts by Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, as well as a strong bass groove by Tom Hamilton, and emotional lyrics delivered by Steven Tyler.
The music video, which can only be seen on the band's compilation video "
Big Ones You Can Look At", features footage of the band recording parts of the song in the studio, as well as odd-ball occurrences such as eyeballs, bones, and other things which may suggest the cannibalistic undertones of the song.
In addition to "Amazing," "Eat the Rich" is featured on Tecmo's "
Dead or Alive 4" video game.
Also it was one of the looped songs on
Revolution XAerosmith's game by Midway Games.
