"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 ...

There isn't anything this clown does any longer that remotely comes close to entertaining. The most amusing part of it all is that he thinks that he is.

Just think ... this scurvy looking, no-talent dude actually has a hand in influencing your kids as to who they should "idolize"! Now, if THAT isn't a scary thought to you, it should be.

hes a rocker, what did you except him to sound like? soft and mellow? You are all a bunch of goofs. What do you think it would sound like if green day perform? or someone with a blue grass background? it would have a twang. He sang in his style that he is famous for. You all had the choice to mute it didnt you? quit your bitching. Side if you think you can do better, made a video of yourself singing in like Steven Tyler post it on you tube and send the link to TMZ and lets judge you.
