THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: AEROSMITH - I DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING

"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing"
"I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" is a song performed by American rock band Aerosmith for the 1998 film Armageddon.

Written by Diane Warren, the song debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (a first for the band after 28 years together). The song stayed at number one for four weeks from September 5 to September 26, 1998. The song also stayed at #1 for several weeks in several other countries. In the United Kingdom, the song peaked at number four in November 1998 and becoming Aerosmith's highest charting song in the UK to date.

The music video for this song was shot in the Minneapolis Armory in 1998 and was directed by Francis Lawrence. It features the band playing the song intertwined with scenes from Armageddon. It features a cameo appearance by Steven Tyler's daughter Liv, who plays Grace Stamper in the film. Steven Tyler hurt his knee the day before the shoot, so they used a lot of close-ups because his movement was limited.
