Toys in the Attic is the third studio album by American rock band Aerosmith, released on April 8, 1975 by Columbia Records. Its first single release, “Sweet Emotion”, was released a month later on May 19 and “Walk This Way” was later released on August 28 in the same year. The album is their most commercially successful studio LP in the US, with eight million copies sold, according to the RIAA.

Steven Tyler said that his original idea for the album cover was a teddy bear sitting in the attic with its wrist cut and stuffing spread across the floor. They decided, in the end, to put all of the animals in instead.

The album was ranked #229 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. “Walk This Way” and the album’s title track are part of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.
