They may be known for their rugged rock classics, like “Walk This Way” and “Dream On,” but in the summer of 1998, Aerosmith showed us their soft side on “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” Written by songwriting legend Diane Warren, the power ballad served as the theme song to the 1998 film Armageddon. With the help of lead singer Steven Tyler’s raspy pipes and Warren’s infallible recipe for love songs, twenty-five years into their career, the track became the band’s first and, shockingly, only number-one hit. Twenty-five years later, this meteor-sized classic still remains a surefire fan favorite.
