"American Idol" judge Steven Tyler is finding himself on the other end of the criticism this afternoon ... he's being mercilessly attacked for his rendition of the National Anthem today. 

Tyler, in a glittery New England Patriots scarf, sung "The Star Spangled Banner" before today's Raven/Patriots AFC Championship game. 

Popular sports site Bleacher Report posted the video under the headline, "Watch Steven Tyler Butcher the National Anthem." Jason Whitlock, columnist for FOXsports.com, tweeted, "Steven Tyler far more obscene than Janet Jackson's t*tty."

To us, he sounded exactly like you'd expect Steven Tyler to. But we ask you ...

When you hire a rock star to do the anthem...you get a rock version. What else would you expect? It's his personal style. It shouldn't be this big of a deal!

He sounded like Steven Tyler , His voice hasn't changed in 40 years , why would it suddenly change for the anthem. I thought it was good.

This only proves that when your face is lifted so often that your testicles are at your navel, your voice box gets strained as well.

The song sucks. Period. I don't care what person sings that song, it's a buster to sing....long, drawn out, wordy and clumsy altogether. Anyone who actually gets through it (and remembers the words) I applaud. He did fine.

I think Tyler did a great job. He's a rocker and has a raspy voice that I love. As for his outfit that's him and no one should want to change him. I thought he put his whole heart and soul in to it. This is from a 65 year old baby boomer. Some of you people just want to find fault with everything because you have nothing better to do.

Tyler's voice was shot eons ago...
Now he's just a hair weaving American Idle (sic) type.

We loved it at my house! We thought he was holding back, expected him to sing more of the National Anthem that way. He is after all Steven Tyler!
