"Also See S.O.S. (Too Bad)"

"Lord of the Thighs" is a song performed by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was written by frontman Steven Tyler, and released on the band's 1974 album "Get Your Wings". Drummer Joey Kramer has said it is one of his favorite Aerosmith songs.

ong Origin and Structure

"Thighs", as it is commonly abbreviated on setlists and elsewhere, was supposedly the last song written for "Get Your Wings." The band needed one more song for the album, so they locked themselves in a studio and came up with this song. The result was a very dark-sounding song focused on prostitution. The song is notable for the unique drum beat by Joey Kramer (which, in its opening, sounds very similar to "Walk This Way"'s) and some of the best lead guitar work by Brad Whitford. The song also features piano playing by Steven Tyler.

Live in Concert

The song has long been a staple in setlists at Aerosmith concerts, and was featured on the live albums "Live! Bootleg" and "Classics Live I". It was also featured on the B-sides collection "Gems". The song has recently been resurrected as a live staple, being played at several concerts on the Rockin' the Joint and Route of All Evil Tours in 2005 and 2006.

In concert, the band typically does an extended jam in the song, which often results in the song exceeding seven minutes in length. Steven Tyler also introduces Brad Whitford before he starts playing the song's riff.

Cover Version

The song was covered by alternative rockers The Breeders in 1993.
