On this day (April 20) in 1993, Aerosmith released Get a Grip. The album, which was written after the original band re-formed, went on to become a no. 1, selling millions of copies.

Few bands do a power ballad like the Bad Boys From Boston, and Get a Grip gave fans some of the best, like “Cryin’,” “Amazing,” and “Crazy”—the Alicia Silverstone video trifecta.

Listen to Get a Grip’s “Cryin’” to mark the occasion!
