"Make It" is a song on Aerosmith's self-titled debut album, Aerosmith. The song was released as a promo single for the album but got little to no airplay. "Make It" opens the first side on the album and contains welcoming lyrics to the listener, "Good evening people, welcome to the show, got something here I want you all to know". The song begins with the protagonist welcoming people to a show and tells them he has something they should know, the info in question is to make it and not break it, which means to succeed in achieving your dreams and not letting anything stop you, much like Aerosmith in their early club days performing up to three shows a day trying to get a record deal. The song was re-recorded for the 2007 video game Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.

In Performance[edit]

"Make It" was performed constantly throughout the seventies and rarely throughout the rest of their career. The first known play was on December 2, 1971 at the Academy of Music in New York City and the last known play was on November 26, 2003 at the Fleet Center in Boston [1]
