"Just Push Play" is the title track from American rock band Aerosmith's 2001 album Just Push Play. The song was written by Steven Tyler, Mark Hudson, and Steve Dudas. It was released as a promotional single from Just Push Play in 2001, and peaked at #10 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #38 on the Top 40 Mainstream chart.

Song structure[edit]

The song is known for its distorted guitars, use of synthesizers (especially with drums and lyrics), and Steven Tyler's scat singing. The chorus of the song also features the phrase "fuckin' A" which is bleeped out through use of a turntable for much of the song, until the end, when the expletive can actually be heard a few times, though bleeped out on Now 9. The song also features a reference to "Walk This Way".

In other media[edit]

The song was performed heavily on Aerosmith's Just Push Play Tour and was also featured in Dodge Ram commercials, during the band's 2001 partnership with the car company. The song was also played during Aerosmith's performance at the historic United We Stand: What More Can I Give benefit concert in October 2001. The track was also included in Aerosmith's 2002 career-spanning compilation O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits, but was a radio-edit version of the track instead of the original.
