Aerosmith hasn't yet named its new greatest hits collection, due June 25 from Columbia, but the tracklist for the double-disc set has been finalized. The 30-song set spans the Boston-based rock outfit's legendary career, beginning with "Mama Kin" and "Dream On" from its 1973 self-titled debut album. Two new songs, "Girls of Summer" and "Lay It Down," round out the collection.

Throughout, the band sprinkles 18 top-40 Billboard Hot 100 hits, from "comeback" era favorites such as "Janie's Got a Gun" and "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" to more recent fare such as "I Don't Want To Miss a Thing" and "Jaded." Remixed versions of "Draw the Line," "Pink," and "Just Push Play" are also included.

The album achieves bassist Tom Hamilton's goal of covering "the whole gamut" of Aerosmith's career. "People love compilations," he told Billboard.com last month. "It's usually delineated by what record company we were with. You have the Geffen era, then the Columbia era. I was thinking of the term pre-Columbian. Isn't that an archeological term [laughs]? So we've got early Columbian, Geffen, then we've got neo-Columbian."

As previously reported, Aerosmith is planning to return to the road this summer. The group has also confirmed a June 27 concert in Tokyo as part of the festivities surrounding this year's World Cup soccer tournament.
