Just Push Play is the thirteenth studio album by American rock band Aerosmith, released in 2001 (see 2001 in music). Helping Aerosmith in the studio were coproducers and song collaborators Marti Frederiksen and Mark Hudson.

Just Push Play features the same slick pop production that Aerosmith had been using in recent albums, though this time there was more of a vintage-era edge to most of the tracks.

The album's first single, "Jaded", became a major Top 10 hit in the U.S. and around the world. As a result, Just Push Play was certified platinum within a month of its release. Subsequent singles "Fly Away from Here", "Sunshine", and "Just Push Play", though garnering some airplay, failed to impact the Hot 100 much, although the latter two charted on the U.S. Mainstream Rock chart and the former charted on the Adult Top 40.

The eight-month long Just Push Play Tour, which ran from June 2001 to January 2002 was launched to support the album. The tour received much success with the only major problems on the tour being cancellations due in part to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The album's cover features a gynoid resembling Marilyn Monroe and was designed by Hajime Sorayama.
