For the 62nd Grammy Awards on January 26, the Aerosmith rocked the genre-smashing remix of 1975 single Walk This Way with Run-DMC. It was as part of a tribute performance to the classic rockers' 50-year music career and a MusiCares philanthropic honour. In the mid-1980s, the Run-DMC cover of the single gave a boost to both band's careers who were reunited on Grammy's stage in 2020. In 1986, the song got the second run for Aerosmith when they teamed up with the trio making one of the first rap-rock collaborations.
