Meat Loaf -- BUTCHERS 'America the Beautiful' at Mitt Romney Event

There he was ... Meat Loaf harmlessly singing "America the Beautiful" with Mitt Romney at a campaign event yesterday ... when all of a sudden, Mr. Loaf went COMPLETELY OFF THE RAILS. 

Meat decided the traditional rendition of the song was a little too boring ... and sane ... so he mixed things up a bit -- with some improv shouting and yelling that he probably considered "creative improvements."

What ensued was nothing short of a musical train wreck.

It's awesome -- ya gotta watch Mitt's face.
