Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed in San Francisco! Steven Tyler wasn’t in his typically playful mood in Season 10’s final audition city. (He didn’t even mention ducks or matches once!) Here are Steven’s best quotes from the Bay City auditions, which happen to all be a leetle on the mean side. We want the old Steven back!

5. Sometimes silence speaks way louder than words

After terrible singer bombs audition: Complete silence — even though we might have heard some crickets chirping.

4. Isn’t lying to a preacher like a double sin?

Steven: You sounded like these guys (points to the word Beatles on his T-shirt.)
Flattered auditioner, who also happens to be a preacher: Really?
Steven: No. Absolutely not.

3. Shut up and drive

Steven (to Transformer guy): You were so slamming. I liked your voice. I don’t know what to do.
Randy (to Steven): Really?
Steven: Joking.

2. Well, that would explain his awful singing

Steven (to horrible singer): Dude, did you hit your head on the way in here?

1. Would she be charged with assault on his eardrums?

To female contestant dressed up in cop costume: You know what? You oughta be arrested for that voice... do you have handcuffs?
