Hailing from the same classic cock-rock album as “Sweet Emotion,” Aerosmith's “Walk This Way” is about as anthemic as it gets. Kid Rock joined Phish onstage in Vegas for this one on 9/29/00. Though some fans questioned the band’s decision to so prominently feature the notoriously abrasive and misogynist rapper in their show, “Walk This Way” was still good for plenty of laughs and was played reasonably well. While only played in full on this one occasion, Phish teased or jammed on "Walk This Way" during "Mike's Song" on 11/28/92, "Good Times Bad Times" on 7/5/97, "2001" in the same 9/29/00 gig, and in "Chalk Dust Torture" on 10/5/00.
