==Story==
  +
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith follows the story of Aerosmith, unlike the other Guitar Hero games, this game, [[Guitar Hero: Metallica]] and [[Guitar Hero: Van Halen]] are band specific games. Instead of playing just Aerosmith songs, the player must play two non-Aerosmith songs, then after that the audience will demand Aerosmith to come out. The player then plays two songs as Aerosmith, and after the player beats these songs, the player then play an encore as Aerosmith and then move on to the next venue. The story starts from Aerosmith's first gig at Nipmuc High School, and then goes to Max's Kansas City, and then keeps on going until the player gets to the 6th tier and final tier which is the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. The game only has 31 songs in the main setlist.

== Story ==
 
A departure from the other games, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith follows the career of Aerosmith. At first, players start each tier as two opening acts, which the band from previous titles play as, with a Rhythm Guitarist added. After finishing the songs, the audience demands the namesake band (similar to encore demands in previous titles), and then the players perform two more songs as Aerosmith. Once THAT is completed, players must perform an encore as Aerosmith.
 
 
In the last tier, before Aerosmith is called onto the stage, Joe Perry challenges the player (as a different Guitar Hero) to a [[Guitar Battle]].
