COVERED BY: DJ VELVET J/KYUMM
INFO: Run DMC version of the Aerosmith song "Walk This Way" was also covered on the tribute "Givin' Up Props: A Tribute to Run-D.M.C."
According to AMG, this one just features "..a bunch rap-metal bands that have heavy riffs and shouted chants. There are few deviations from that formula here, but pretty much this is the hardest-rocking rap band remade into a thudding metallic din..."

COVERED BY: METALLICA
INFO: Metallica included a part of "Walk This Way" (up to the singing part) in their box set "Live Shit : Binge and Purge." It's not on one of the CDs in the box, but appears in a medley on the second video of the San Deigo show.. It's after the drum solo, when James and Lars have a Drum off....
During Lars' drum solo in the DVD, James Hetfield walks out and starts playing "Walk This Way" on the second drum set. Then Kirk played the opening riff. Lars said "Fucking Aerosmith came to San Diego with us"
