On May 8th, 1993 – The awesome AEROSMITH had their eleventh studio album, Get A Grip, ranked at #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. This was AEROSMITH‘s first #1 album! That’s hard to believe, I know! Get A Grip has gone on to sell 7 million (plus) copies in just the USA alone! Yes, the early 90’s wasn’t all about Grunge. Long Live AEROSMITH.
