Social media was set ablaze last night with reactions to President Obama’s re-election, and no surprise – musicians got in on the celebrating or hating.

“This is where it started and this is where it will never end!” Steven Tyler at Aerosmith’s free concert in front of 1325 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston: the apartment where the band began about four decades ago.
Aerosmith have never been considered a “political” band. But considering the evidence of their beliefs, and their history with patriotic events, one thing is certain: they believe in America.
Coinciding with the release of their new album Music From Another Dimension! – and to provide Boston residents with a memorable Monday afternoon – Aerosmith have revealed plans to perform a surprise concert at an undisclosed location in the city on November 5th, the day before the album comes out.
The video fits with the song’s country vibe, showing Steven Tyler belting out the ballad over empty beer cans and liquor bottles in a dive bar filled with roughed-up clientele.
“Oh Yeah” is one of the songs from Aerosmith’s upcoming album, Music From Another Dimension that the band played in concert during their summer tour. In the video below, Joe Perry discuses bringing the song to the band. What was supposed to end up as a funk-driven pop song actually ended up sounding like a vintage Aerosmith, riff-heavy track that you’d find on Rocks or Toys In The Attic.
Aerosmith were trying out some new songs over the summer, including “Oh Yeah” and “Legendary Child.” Both songs are on their next album, Music From Another Dimension, which comes out November 6, two days before the tour kicks off. (“Legendary Child” is currently available on iTunes, as are new tunes “What Could Have Been Love” and “Love Her A Lot”).
Let’s take a look at this week’s albums, reissues and other musical goodies from classic artists making musical waves yet again.
