Butchered celebrity performances of "The Star-Spangled Banner" are as important to American history as the anthem itself, but Steven Tyler gave us something entirely different during today's AFC Championship. His may be the first rendition that screeched while being butchered.
Sure, there are the classic mispronunciations and forgotten lyrics we've all come to expect ("And the rockets' red glare as bombs bursting in air"?), but what's really special about this performance is Tyler's emergency brake of a voice.
Steven definitely deserves an A+ for effort (he was clearly giving 110%), but maybe his singing voice just shouldn't leave the station again anytime soon.
