Did Steven Tyler ‘Butcher’ the National Anthem Yesterday…or Not? [VIDEO]

Steven Tyler performed the National Anthem before yesterday’s New England Patriots / Baltimore Ravens game and it wasn’t exactly a BEAUTIFUL rendition.

For the most part, it was exactly what you’d expect out of a Steven Tyler National Anthem…only maybe a little worse. But apparently people were expecting MUCH more, because it seems like everyone is SLAMMING him for it.

Most of the haters were ragging on Steven’s voice. (He got ALMOST all of the words right. He sang, “and the rockets’ red glare as bombs bursting in air” instead of “and the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air.”)

The Associated Press is saying it wouldn’t have gotten him a Golden Ticket to Hollywood, Deadspin.com called it one of the worst anthems of all time and RadarOnline.com said he “butchered” it.

One site said he “screeched and murdered” the Anthem, and asked, “How is this guy supposed to pass as a judge on a singing competition when he does this?” Others wondered if he was sick or had lost his voice.

You be the judge. Here’s the video:

What do you think? Did Steven disappoint you…or is this what we should expect from a Steven Tyler National Anthem?
