Rocks is the fourth studio album by American rock band Aerosmith, released May 14, 1976. AllMusic described Rocks as having "captured Aerosmith at their most raw and rocking." Rocks was ranked No. 176 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It has greatly influenced many hard rock and heavy metal artists, including Guns N' Roses, Metallica, and Nirvana. The album was a commercial success, charting three singles on the Billboard Hot 100, two of which reached the Top 40 ("Back in the Saddle" and "Last Child"). The album was one of the first to ship platinum when it was released, and has since gone quadruple platinum. Although the official website for Aerosmith lists the release date for Rocks as May 3, 1976, the USA copyright office lists the album as being released on May 7, 1976. The album was actually delayed one additional week from the copyright date and released on May 14, 1976, entering the music charts on May 29, 1976. more »
