Looks like Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler is having the last laugh on his bandmates.

Joe Perry et al raked him over the coals for joining "American Idol" as a judge for its 10th season, but due to the 60-something rocker’s smooth charm and the incessant playing of “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” on the show, sales of old Aerosmith songs are zooming up the charts.

Aerosmith’s 1998 power ballad, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” is currently #22 on Apple’s iTunes chart, and not one but two versions of Aerosmith’s 1973 hit “Dream On” are charting, at #77 and #115, respectively.

“Steven Tyler is such a character on the show, and that’s sure to boost interest in his work,” Richard Rushfield, author of “American Idol: The Untold Story” tells FOX411 exclusively. “Just like we’ve seen in the past, when people appear on ‘Idol,’ it gives their sales a bit of a jump. Clearly, (Tyler’s band mates) didn’t see the potential that being part of the show could have for the band in a positive way.”

And while Tyler’s band mates are eating crow, the Aerosmith frontman has become a breakout star—again.

“So far, Steven Tyler has been a pretty striking presence on Idol,” says Rushfield. “He’s a wild character, and he’s pretty much pushed Simon Cowell out of people’s minds in just two weeks.”

So take that, Joe Perry! And let the Aerosmith break-up rumors commence...
