Between 1970 and 1972, the band Aerosmith lived together at the second floor apartment (#41) at this building on 1325 Commonwealth Avenue. The band wrote and rehearsed many of the songs on their debut album at this apartment, including “Mama Kin,” “One Way Street” and the song “Movin’ Out” which was the very first song Steven Tyler and Joe Perry wrote together (in Perry’s bedroom at the apartment).

In 2012, the band returned to Commonwealth Ave. to play a free concert outside their former apartment building. The city also dedicated a plaque for the building on the occasion.
