Did Steven Tyler one up Saving Abel in the ‘horrible anthem’ category?

Remember all the way back to the August Michigan race and Saving Abel's rendition of the National Anthem?

Oh, you've cleansed that from your memory? Sorry, I apologize for bringing it up.

Before Sunday's AFC Championship game between the Patriots and Ravens, Aerosmith lead singer and current 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler sang the National Anthem. As fellow Y! blogger Maggie Hendricks said, using the word sing or any of its variations may be an overstatement.

So now we've got to ask? What was worse? Steven Tyler or Saving Abel? Drop us a line in the comments, and no, we're not responsible for any potential hearing loss from watching these videos.
