  • Mike

    I think that’s a little bullshit. Good job to OM&M but Alesana was leading when the polls closed for me. If you’re gonna have them close, close all at once so THIS doesn’t happen

    • Miguel Arenas Sanchez

      your right, I herd that the polls didn’t stop for everyone and ppl could still vote

  • IrisAlesana

    Fatima Rusalka is still Song of the Year for the Alesana Army.
    PMA

  • James

    Bullshit! Alesana was winning when polls closed. Fixed.

    • Miguel Arenas Sanchez

      Hell yea Alesana was winning!!! this shit’s fixed!!!

  • JanRusalka

    Alesana is Still D’Best. PMA

  • Miguel Arenas Sanchez

    When the poll closed Alesana was in first place with 22.3% and Of Mice & Men had 22.09% so basicly Alesana won not Of Mice & Men

  • JanRusalka

    Cheating i not Goood. XD PMA

  • Hell Paradise

    This is fake, Alesana wons!, fucking page…

  • BloodyRain

    This isn´t true… Alesana just was ahead in the last minutes

  • Rick

    I used to love this site … now they do anything for money, the vote was sold…

  • Alesanafan

    Alesana was winning before the poll closed…what happened?

  • Miguel Arenas Sanchez

    This just proves that Alesana is a better band guys Of Mice & Men just got help from the page or bout the win, This Poll was fixed
    PMA <3

    • Guest

      You’re an idiot (: first of all, it’s not rigged and second IF IT WAS (which it’s not) it has nothing to do with OM&M. It would be revolver magazine’s fault. Think about what you’re saying before you are it because you’re just embarrassing yourself.

  • Randy Petree

    Hail to the King the only good song on the whole list.

    • Jason Carr

      bs. Dillinger Escape Plan and Stone Sour were on there, both those songs/albums rock.

  • Oreos

    Wow. I’m sure Revolver is reading and just doesn’t give a damn, but Alesana was ahead when this thing closed.

  • Mike

    Yeah come on Revolver. I’m not even mad that OM&M won but they DIDN’T win. They werent in 1st when the polls closed.

  • FatimaRusalka:3

    This pages really SUCKS, fuckings assholes, Alesana wons!

  • Dobey

    Alesana won, not OM&M. Get your shit together, Revolver.

  • Mr. Panda

    Way to fix the poll after it closed. Ass holes.

  • Alexander

    This is totally fake, Revolver is just SHIT

  • JanRusalka

    I spend so many Votes for my Alesana and That of OM&M Ruined it,I Spent 1 Week for Voting Sh*t Page! XD ./.

    • Miguel Arenas Sanchez

      IKR!!! i was voting since the first day that this poll started and Of Mice & Me was way low and when there where only three days left it tourns out that they where in secend place

  • Yannick

    I though Revolver was a Metal webzine … why there is only Trivium and A7X in Metal?

    • Derps

      Because the 13 year olds push every other band as metal… they shall never stop… there is no longer any metal :/

  • JanRusalka

    Yeah Fucking Mag! ./. u

  • JanRusalka

    What the!? Betlog All, Push nyo yan mga Daga at Lalaki mga Golteb kayo! Haha! Kainin nyo Magazine nyo Pakyow. XD Haha!

  • Doge

    So a generic song that most of us have heard in some form or another from other bands beat out a song based loosely on an extremely good book because the lovely folks at Revolver fixed the poll AFTER it closed? Seems legit.

  • MikeSuicide

    Revolver has been shit for years…get with it. They’ve been shit since they stole the concept for the Metal Awards from the originators.

  • Ellie

    I’m seriously laughing at all the comments below. alesana was in the lead they couldn’t stop bitching and bragging about how much they are gonna win and how annoying the OM&M fans are for being upset they were behind. well, guess who’s complaining now because they lost. karma is a bitch!

    • asd

      Too bad the poll was fixed ;) Alesana was winning when it closed and you know it

    • Cheyna Shannon

      A lot of OM&M fans were doing the same thing…All over my personal Facebook page too…If it’s karma’s doing that Alesana lost, OM&M should have lost too by that logic. When Alesana was behind we complained about it, and when OM&M was in the lead you bragged about it. That’s completely normal in a COMPETITION. OM&M’s song won, which is awesome! I loved You’re Not Alone just as much as the people who voted for it. Every soldier in this army isn’t a dick-some people are just more angry and illogical than others. And you know what? It’s not even abut the band-it’s about the song. You’re Not Alone beat Fatima Rusalka. OM&M didn’t beat Alesana…

  • Alesana should’ve won.

    I voted for Alesana literally like 200 times. I guess that wasn’t enough to beat the 14-year-old fangirls. They lost by less than 1% too..

    • Guest

      You’re acting like Alesana doesn’t have fan girls. Grow up, and stop labeling people.

  • Questioner

    How was this THE song of 2013 when it just came out at the end of the year?

  • BringMetoLife

    This page is really a big pice of shit, all of us know that Alesana really wons

  • meme

    ha, you guys are only complaining because alesana didn’t win. stay mad motherfuckers, of mice & men SLAYS your fave.

    • asd

      Too bad they had to fix the polls to keep the little girls happy. Alesana was in first when the poll closed. Go ahead and take your fake award. They didn’t earn it

    • MurdererSerialKiller

      That band sucks, and this is all a big fake, Alesana wons at the last minutes.

    • Derps

      Too bad they both suck

    • Dizzydreamer806

      @meme you don’t need to be so rude, we won but don’t be hateful about it. And to the Alesana fans being hateful you don’t need to be rude either they still got second place and that is really good

  • Zac_Nightmares

    You’re not alone is not the best song of 2013. But, its by one of the best up and coming bands. The alesana song is really poor. Ultimately, if Revolver had used Bones Exposed by OM&M there wouldn’t be a contest….

  • Erick Ramirez

    well grats OM&M, i think they choose a generic band for convenience, FUCK THIS!

    • meme

      you look like a 5 year old going through their scene phase why are you even talking

  • violinist26

    Alesana’s song came out like 12 days ago we should be proud that it almost won song of the year. This proves just how great Alesana’s fans are #AlesanaArmy

  • Jewell

    Bring Me The Horizon didn’t even place in the top 5?!? They dominated this year if you ask me.

    • Andrew Scott

      They completely sold out imo we don’t need more dubstep I liked them when they actually screamed not sang about jesus and the earth.

  • Math

    fuck revolver. Alesana is not for everybody, their musical art is WAY beyond OM&M shit.

  • paulina ocampo

    I’m a fan of OM&M and Alesana, and yes I voted for both of them but I dont know why people are bitching about OM&M winning because you guys are saying that when the poll was closed that Alesana was winning it closed for you, you do know i still got to vote again??they didnt completely close the poles in other places and you guys shouldnt be dissing on OM&M or the magazine just because Alesana didnt win you guys should be proud Alesana got 2nd place because fatima rusalka barely came out and for that song to be recognized so fast is rad so be happy and stop dissing

    • Cheyna Shannon

      Lucky you still got to vote again, but I had just clicked vote when the page said the poll was now closed. The last time I saw the score it was Alesana 22.3% and Of Mice & Men 22.09… :/

  • Fuck you

    Revolver is just FAKE

  • OM&K

    Of mice and men family, we did the boys proud I would believe after voting are butts off all week.c: They deserved this despite what others might say, you’re not alone is an amazing song, and in the end we aren’t just a fanbase we are a family! <33

    All the negativity isn't needed, to all the fans of Alesana, isn't it enough for them to be in top 5, the polls were close. It was a war between OM&M and Alesana from day one, we all knew they both would have come close when it came down to the final day of voting, I'm sure the band in which you supported are happy to be in top 5, does it really matter if they're first or not, they still get to see that they have fans out there who are willing to spend there day voting and support them. They do what they do because its what makes them happy and also brings joy to many others, they don't want to be seeing all this negativity being thrown around..

    • Alesana Forevah

      Shut up!, Alesana wons and this is a fake, i was watching and Of mice and men whas behind, all of this SUCKS, i was voting all the fucking week for this!, this is a this is a robbery.

      • guest

        Why do you have to be so rude? We voted all week too. I’m sorry Alesana didn’t win. But that doesn’t mean you should be rude. You wouldn’t want the OM&M fans yelling at you if Alesana won.

        • Alesana Forevah

          Dont u saw al the comments below??? ALESANA WONS, this is all a fake and a big robbery!!!

          • guest

            I’m sorry. If it really is true that Alesana won then I’m sorry. But there is nothing we can do about it. Yelling at the OM&M fans won’t change who “won”. If you have a problem you should take it up with Revolver, not OM&M fans.

          • OM&’ME’

            The polls closed at different time for differ places so there could have been people voting even when the polls were closed from you’re view, don’t take it out on the band or it’s fan base please,

  • Alesana Forevah

    Fuck this page…

  • OM&M

    Good job OM&M!!! I’m so proud of you guys!! We did it! :) Congrats to Alesana for such a close score! Both bands deserved it!

    • Alesana Forevah

      Fuck off OM&M sucks and Revolver can go to hell with them.

      • OM&M

        Can you not? I was in no ways rude to you or Alesana in this post or throughout all of the voting. You are the definition of a sore loser.

        • Alesana Forevah

          Most of us were there and we could saw that Alesana won, this is a robbery and OM&M are a big pice of fuckers, theres money here…

          • OM&M

            You’re missing the point that there is NOTHING we can do about it. I really am sorry that it turned out the way it did but yelling at fans and trashing talking OM&M won’t do anything.

          • Alesana Forevah

            it’s better than sitting around doing nothing about

          • OM&M

            Do you expect Revolver to see your comments and say “Oh yes we made a mistake. Let’s change it because these people asked so kindly.”? I don’t think so. Bottom line is you have no right to attack people who did NOTHING to you. Goodbye.

          • Alesana Forevah

            I hope you enjoy very much your fixed victory c:

        • Alesana Forevah

          Who cares you or your fucking life? Alesana wons and thats the point, this is all a pice of shit.

          • OM&M

            That made no sense and please learn to spell. *piece

      • KatieLovesOMandM<3

        Buzz off.

  • Erick Ramirez

    this shit doesnt prove nothing, is only publicity and obviously for them is better choose a commercial band!

  • Alesana Forevah

    OM&M burn in hells SUCKERS

    • Alesana Forevah

      °Hell

  • Ellie

    of alesana won, I bet you guys wouldn’t be saying that revolver magazine would have been shit for years. just because the band you were voting for lost doesn’t mean the magazine is shit.grow up. alesana fans kept saying how OM&M fans were being sore losers… well look who’s being sore losers now.

    • guest

      Exactly!!! This is just a poll on a magazine. If they have a problem with Revolver, then they don’t need to buy the magazine or follow it. No matter what happens there is always a sore loser. BOTH bands are great and had great songs. If Revolver actually did rig the polls then it’s not the OM&M fans fault. We can’t change what happened.

      • Guest1

        Exactly! And just because Alesana lost, doesn’t mean you guys have to say that the poll was rigged. Remember when all you Alesana fans kept saying “stop saying something is wrong with the poll OM&M fans! Just because you are losing doesn’t mean we are cheating!” Well, now you guys should stop saying it was rigged. Karma is a bitch, just accept that. Everything OM&M fans were saying that you were complaining about, you guys are saying it now.

        • Alesana Forevah

          Yes it was…

        • asd

          Except it WAS rigged. Please tell me how Alesana lost when they were .20% ahead of OM&M when the poll closed. We’re not being sore losers, we want what is rightfully ours. OM&M are great, but they didn’t win this. They closed at 22.1 and Alesana closed at 22.3

          • ???

            Even if you guys really did win, it doesn’t give you the right to says OM&M sucks and that they and their fans can burn in hell. How is that trying to get what you deserve?

          • asd

            I personally do think they suck, but not ONCE have I said it on here. Fans that bash other bands don’t have the right to be called a fan at all

          • ….

            You want was is rightfully yours? Then don’t waste your times posting comments about it. You think it was rigged? Well OM&M fans didn’t rig it, Alesana fans didn’t rig it. You have a problem with it being rigged? Contact revolver magazine then. I’m sure they would love to send you an e-mail about how stupid you’re being for thinking it was rigged.

    • Alesana Forevah

      Suck it pice of shit, this were fixed.

      • LOL

        I think the worst thing about your insults the fact that you can’t spell or use correct grammar. *piece *was fixed

      • Ellie

        Oh, just because you lost they were fixed? Grow up! Stop being a sore loser.

  • Dizzydreamer806

    Yay! :D so excited that they won! Good job of mice and men!

    • Hell Paradise

      Other 13 pussy squirt with OM&M…

      • is this English or…?

      • Dizzydreamer806

        Idk if you think you’re insulting me, but spouting random insulting words in an incoherent sentence doesn’t insult me

  • Dizzydreamer806

    Good lord everybody is so hateful today, Alesana won SECOND PLACE: YOU SHOULD STILL BE PROUD OF THAT. Stop with the conspiracy theories about it being fixed and move on. Of mice and men won, Alesana got second. I’m sure the band is still extremely happy with second place and so should their fanbase geez.

    • Edu

      proud? the other band sucks cocks!

      • Dizzydreamer806

        You don’t have to be rude about it, I’m sorry they didn’t win but if the band is as great as everyone says, then they wouldn’t want their fans spreading hate over this. They still got second place and that’s really good considering the song JUST came out.

        • Alesana Forevah

          This is was fixed pice of SHIT, cmon go and suck one more time my dick, SUCKER

          • Dizzydreamer806

            This is the reason people are getting mad. You’re being irrational. It was a poll, based on fans alone; it doesn’t mean anything calm down and stop acting childish because you didn’t get your way

  • Edu

    BULLSHIT!

  • Alesanero

    the polls were fixed!!!

  • Seriously Guys…

    I wasn’t voting for OM&M or Alesana during the poll. But I was keeping up with the conversation that was going back and forth between the two fan bases. I have to agree with the fans of OM&M on this one… the Alesana fans were being really rude before, saying that OM&M are sore losers and that Alesana is going to win for sure. Well… guess you guys spoke to soon. I just wanted to say that just because OM&M won doesn’t mean that revolver is/has been a bad magazine. In my opinion, Alesana fans are just being the sore losers now because you can’t accept the fact that you guys lost. What’s done is done. This poll means nothing. Everyone has their own opinion of song of the year. All the bands did great this year, and I’m proud of all of them. Alesana fans… just stop saying revolver magazine sucks and stop saying that OM&M fans should go to hell and that they didn’t deserve to win. All the bands deserved to win, but unfortunately their couldn’t be more than one “winner.” All the bands are winners. They all released great songs this year. OM&M, congratulations for the win. You’re fans base really know how to come together. Alesana, congratulations for coming in 2nd, you’re fan base as well has some really dedicated fans that obviously love and support the band. Congratulations to all the bands, for releasing great songs this year!

    • guest

      THANK YOU!! You summed it up perfectly.

    • fuck y’all

      You’re drunk go home

    • Alesana Forevah

      This is fixed my friend c: , OM&M and Revolver, the both can go and BURN IN HELL

    • asd

      Yeah great they’re both good bands but this poll screwed Alesana out of their win. The polls closed at random times for everyone. I was locked out of voting while my neighbor could still vote so it wasnt a time zone thing. We’re not being sore losers, we’re pissed that Revolver did a shitty job at closing the poll and cost Alesana first place. Nothing against either fanbase, but the reason the didn’t place first is because Revolver did a shitty job closing the poll and gave OM&M a bigger chance at catching up

      • Guest1

        Stop finding an excuse for everything just because you lost. Just be happy you got second.

        • asd

          It’s not an excuse. It’s Revolvers fault for giving ANY of the bands an upperhand. I’m happy they got 2nd, but they were SUPPOSED to get first and would have if the poll had closed universally for everyone. If people just sat back and were happy every time they got cheated then the world would never progress

          • Guest1

            Why was Alesana suppose to win? You’re still finding excuses for losing. If you have a problem with revolver why don’t you contact them? I’m sure they’d love to hear from you! (not really) They don’t care.

          • asd

            They were supposed to win because they placed 1st when the polls closed. Simple as that. That’s not an excuse, thats fact. Same for any other band. The polls SHOULD have closed for everyone at once, when mine closed, they were in 1st. That means they won, if they stayed open for others, which they did, it gave OM&M an unfair chance at coming back. It should have been a universal close and not random. Had it been that way, Alesana would have won. And trust me, I have email’d them. And thinking a magazine doesn’t read reader mail? You must really think these people are douchebags :/

          • Guest1

            Okay first of all you’re being stupid. You’re acting like revolver knew who’s IP address was voting for OM&M and they only left those polls open! Everyone had a chance to vote, no matter what time the poll closed.

          • Wow

            Just because the polls closed randomly doesn’t mean that OM&M had an advantage, Revolver didn’t end the poll just for Alesana fans and keep it open just for OM&M fans. What your saying doesn’t add up to me, there was no advantage for anyone.

  • well well well

    We won 2nd place!! we should be proud we reached 2nd without revolver’s help. We did it by ourselves.

  • KatieRevivalRecordings

    Congrats OM&M!
    Negativity is never the answer, despite the possibility of this being “rigged”, Alesana Army. Negativity from the OM&M side is not appreciated either. I am very happy to say the Alesana guys are nowhere near upset, they are very proud of us and this song. We worked so hard from day one down to the very last second and they know this. As Shawn stated, “We learn most when we lose, not when we win”. This is only a poll. So, with that being said, let’s move on to bigger and much better things. Look forward to some amazing shit in 2014. Trust me when I say it is going to be an absolutely incredible year for these guys. So stoked for the future!!!
    Awesome job, everyone!
    PMA always

    • guest

      OM&M is shit… all of us know that, dont deserve to win

      • guest2

        That’s your opinion you butthole.

  • HA!

    You want to know what I have to say? HAHAHAHAHA FUCKING HA!!!! Typical person aye? “You’re winning? That means you’re cheating!” “You won? It was rigged!” GROW THE FUCK UP! Sore fucking losers man, I swear to fucking God. You can’t change the outcome. Deal with it! I’m so fucking annoyed. Just because you guys lost doesn’t mean you can go around saying bullshit like it was rigged and that OM&M fans suck and all that bullshit. Grow the fuck up please. It’s a poll, not a $300,000,000 reward.

    • afasdfg

      You’re fucking blind. Alesana was leading when the polls closed. Go ahead and spout more crap like you were paying attention to the score

      • I love how all you are doing is giving Alesana’s fanbase a TERRIBLE name. You’re hurting them more than helping them.

        • asd

          haha why? Because I’m standing up for them being cheated out of a victory? I’m sorry, I’ll just sit back and let Revolver fix more polls so other bands get cheated as well

          • Alesana Forevah

            True…

          • Then Yell at Revolver, NOT OM&M fans. I don’t work at Revolver. I can’t do anything. All you need to do is post a comment in a polite manner saying you disagree with the final results.

          • asd

            I have. I emailed them with a very polite email detailing what I think is wrong. I’m only being rude to the ones being rude to others

          • I wasn’t rude to you once. I just want to make peace. I have nothing against you or the band. I personally hate these kind of polls because this happens. Both bands deserved it and I’m sorry that you guys were rigged. I just don’t take kindly to my favorite band and their fans being attacked. I didn’t do anything wrong. I feel like you’re attacking fans for no reason or at least reasons that can’t control.

      • HA!

        When the pulls closed Alesana wasn’t in the fucking lead you piece of shit! You people find an excuse for everything don’t you? Idiots. I swear to God. Idiots.

        • Cheyna Shannon

          The polls closed for many people at different times..When they closed for me Alesana was at 22.3% and Of Mice & Men was at 22.09% I had literally just clicked the “vote” button when the page popped up and said the poll was closed :/ I agree my fellow soldiers shouldn’t be making a scene of themselves when there’s nothing we can do about it, but the poll closings were a little disorganized..

    • Hell Paradise

      I hope you die of cancer pice of shit

      • OM&M

        DON’T EVER FUCKING SAY THAT. You crossed the line. Don’t ever wish death on someone especially over a stupid poll. This is ridiculous.

      • HA!

        It’s funny how pissed you are over a fucking poll. Grow up! Alesana has a terrible fan base.. you’re all rude! And before you say I’m with the OM&M fan base, I’m not. I was voting for Asking Alexandria. You don’t see me complaining about it being rigged!

        • TrustME

          Alesana has a terrible fan base? and AA? hahahahaha where their fans are? 5th place? CMON!

          • HA!

            So what? just because we we’re in 5th doesn’t mean we have a terrible fan base! The reason i said you have a terrible fan base is because you guys are so fucking rude to everyone and you keep bitching and whining about how it was rigged and how everyone cheated.

          • anonymous

            Alesana does have a terrible fan base. This guy came on. his name was “C:”. Yeah. He told people to go kill themselves and slit their wrists and he was for Alesana.
            Their fan base is rude as fuck. I guess it’s all raised of the lyrics. :)
            Have a nice day. :)
            I was with Of Mice & Men and I always will be.

          • anonymous

            *raised off
            not raised of, my bad.

  • sexxman

    Congratulations OM&M, Alesana and to all the Bands. you all created such BEAUTIFUL fucking Music. go fuck with it.

  • ThisGuy

    Would it kill some of these newer bands to come up with an actual riff? The rest of the song is OK, but the riff is dull! How do you have breakdowns when there is no riff?

  • TheGuy

    For everyone complaining and bitching at the ones complaining. How about I outline what happened from a neutral viewpoint.

    For me, Alesana was at 22.30, leading by .20% when the polls closed.
    OM&M was at 22.10.

    For me, Alesana won.

    Others are saying that OM&M won. Now how could that have happened?
    Easy. For some reason, the polls closed randomly for everyone withing an hour time frame. Which cut off a lot of Alesana fanbase from voting and gave OM&M an unfair chance at catching up. From someone who likes BOTH bands, it seems to me that Alesana really won this as they were i first when the first polls started closing.

    I believe this is a mistake on Revolvers part and Alesana should be given the award. Not that’s it’s gonna happen, but it’s my honest belief that they were screwed out of this by bad management

    • Dizzydreamer806

      I feel like even with the random cut off times, Revolver didn’t know who was voting for who, so it wasn’t rigged, it was bad timing. I agree they shouldn’t have done the random cutoff times but they didn’t give of mice and men an unfair advantage.

      • Mike

        I feel like it did. Alesana was a good bit ahead of OM&M when it closed for me so that means it would have closed out more of the more dedicated Alesana fans in order for OM&M to catch up in less than 30 minutes. Bad luck i guess

        • Dizzydreamer806

          I understand that the cutoff wasn’t fair but Revolver didn’t purposely give OM&M an advantage, it was a random cutoff they didn’t know who was voting for who.

    • Hell Paradise

      Totally agree, Revolver sucks so I will not waste any more of my time on this crap

      • Wow

        Finally people with logic lol. There was no advantage. Yeah random cutoff timing sucks, but it gave no one an advantage.

  • Okay

    I really wish these polls just didn’t even have a comments section… Just stop complaining..

  • yes

    Just stop. you’re all annoying

  • Guest

    I think the worst thing this magazine ever did was adding a comments section to the polls.

  • Shut the hell up

    EVERYONE JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP. YOU CAN’T CHANGE IT. IT’S JUST A FUCKING POLL. My GOD everyone on here is a fucking pussy.

  • Lexi

    Okay so I’m a huge fan of OM&M, however I feel that they didn’t give it their all in that song. How is this song of the year? Bones Exposed was better imo.

  • Sigh..

    I’m a fan of OM&M but honestly this song as song of the year? C’mon there’s no way in hell this is close to song of the year quality. Not to mention it came out a month ago..

    The amount of shameful promoting by OM&M to 12 year old girls is seriously depressing.

    • Dizzydreamer806

      I don’t understand why people keep mentioning fangirls. THEY WON GET OVER IT! It’s not fangirls it’s real fans who like the song

  • Cheyna Shannon

    Congrats Of Mice & Men! Really good on your song-proud to be a fan :)

    Alesana Army, c’mon guys.. we voted long and hard relentlessly but they came out on top. We can’t win every war, so let’s stop raging and giving ourselves a bad name. Second place isn’t the best, but it’s not bad either! Be positive, because our boys aren’t unhappy, not one bit. <3

  • Calm yo tits

    Guys, calm the fuck down. So what that Alesana didn’t win? We won in 2011. I would have loved for Alesana to win; they’re my favorite band. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to thrash about in a rage just because OM&M won. Seriously. You guys are making the entire Alesana fanbase look stupid, immature, and rude. Grow the hell up.

  • Cheyna Shannon

    You’re Not Alone beat Fatima Rusalka, OM&M didn’t beat Alesana. This is a battle of the SONG, not a battle of the BAND itself. Too many people were just voting because it was they’re favorite band, which is fine…but in that sense the point of the poll is lost.

  • Bleh.

    I love of mice and men okay. but the song itself was not their best. Like I voted forAlesana because of their creativeness and the song was beautiful truly a masterpiece. You can hear how much effort they put in it just by how Amazingly brilliant it sounds. OM&M’s song in comparison was sort of plain. It is what it is I guess. I will never forget alesana being in the lead by at least two percent more. I don’t know how it concluded this way but we can’t change the final say. It sucks. But I’m proud of Alesana no matter what and I know I’m not the only person who would have wanted Alesana to win. They are winners to me and will always be seen as magnificent musicians to the Alesana army! No polls will tell me otherwise! Congrats to all the bands!!<3

  • Daniel Lahner

    Trivium and AV7 are the only 2 bands on this list that will exist 10 years from now. This poll is really quite worthless.

    • Math

      Alesana is almost 10 years old, dumbass.

      • Daniel Lahner

        The problem with that band is their Singer can not SING. Their song writing is half-way decent… Their Vocals just aren’t there… The singing is horrible.

        • Adam

          You are indeed an ignorant fellow aren’t you? Alesana has some of the best written lyrics in the music industry. You are coming off as someone who probably hasn’t even listened to them. Shawn has a very unique voice and he can sing. He can sing better than all of the damn bands on this list.

          • DontTryToJudgeOrTakeShotsAtME

            Apology – a song about a breakup.
            So fucking original

        • Firefox1095

          You can’t really say a singer cannot sing because that goes back to opinion. For example, I see that M. Shadows is the only thing holding A7X back. In my opinion, this guy can’t sing for shit. But that’s just my opinion and each is entitled to his own opinion.
          As for the lyrics, you’ve got to be f**king kidding me. Alesana’s lyrics are some of the most memorable and most poetic lyrics in the entire musical industry.
          As for the “exist in 10 years” shit, I’m more than happy to tell you that Alesana is pretty much a Post-Hardcore legend. This had such a huge period of success a few years ago that it’s on its own level now. It’s above all else.

          • Joeytigerz

            I like you,

          • anonymous

            And you say that there is no opinions when it comes to Of Mice being generic. Wow. I see a hypocrite here.
            Avenged has been together for 14 years now? Your point is?

          • anonymous

            I meant 15 years, sorry. I was trying to think of how old my sister is because she was born the same year Avenged got together (1999).

      • MOTHERFUCKER WAR IS THE ANSWER

        FFDP and Killswitch too, and most of the bands on this list minus the emo faggots

    • anonymous

      Avenged has been together for 15 years. They didn’t just recently get together. Although I am a HUGE fan of Avenged Sevenfold’s, I highly doubt they’ll still be together in 10 years. They’re going on their 15th year. When they were together for 10, they almost broke up the band. They had gotten so much fan mail saying they should continue and do it for Jimmy. They’ve made 2 more albums since.

  • Caroline

    I personally love you’re not alone.. people keep saying “oh it’s so generic” blah blah blah. seriously, just stop. if you don’t like a song just don’t listen to it. you don’t have to hate on it so much. The band worked really hard and you’re basically just shitting in there face. It’s a good song, and other might disagree. And that’s okay, just don’t be so rude about it…

    • Math

      You don’t have a proper argument. The song IS INDEED generic.

      • Caroline

        That’s your opinion. Just like my opinion is that it’s not. There is no FACT stating it’s generic. So sorry, but you’re wrong.

        • Math

          No. There are loads of bands that sound exactly like OM&M. I won’t waste my time here listing these bands. But really, there are. Breakdowns over breakdowns with a melodic part and cliche-lyrics, GENERIC BULLSHIT.

        • Firefox1095

          There’s no “opinion” about that. The song is generic. The amount of songs I could put right now that sound exactly like OM&M’s You’re Not Alone is innumerable.

  • Dannyboi3459

    Never heard of alesana the new of mice and men song was shit only band in the top 5 that deserve to be there is trivium where is black sabbeth or killswitch engage their albums were brilliant

    • anonymous

      They all deserved it. No one band is better than the other (I would say something but the “band” it’s about wasn’t in there. Let’s just say it was the “band” who got banned from Warped Tour. If you haven’t heard about it, look it up and you’ll know.)

  • Amy

    I for one, am disgusted. I’m disgusted because of the way people have been acting. Wow. All these insults, and hurtful, rude, immature comments. Those are all unnecessary. I understand many bands are upset that they lost but is complaining, and bitching, and insulting going to bring you up to first place? No. Okay, so you’re not happy with the outcome. Well, you can’t change it. Next year, hopefully the song/band you want to win, will. But as for now, congratulations Of mice and men. Congratulations to the other bands as well. Just stop being so immature please. It’s not necessary. If you don’t have anything nice or valuable to say, don’t say it at all. I’m not saying don’t voice your opinion. Just don’t voice it the way you are now. It’s childish. Simply say you wish another band would have won instead. You don’t have to insult another band just to prove your point. In fact, it just makes you look band. You don’t have to call other bands shit, or that they didn’t deserve it, or that they are all fan girls,etc. Just be mature about it.

    • alesana!!

      this is the best thing i’ve read on this website all day! THANK YOU

    • Firefox1095

      We’re not upset because of the outcome. We’re upset of what led to the outcome. Those pesky fans literally just dropped a last minute bomb. And they weren’t even voting for the song. They were voting for the band. If I were to vote for the band, I would’ve put all my votes on either Asking Alexandria or Black Sabbath. But Alesana really did such an astonishing job with Fatima Rusalka. They deserved the win.
      There are many songs that deserved to win this thing but OM&M’s You’re Not Alone definitely isn’t one of them.

      • Dizzydreamer806

        That’s your opinion, just because you don’t like a song doesn’t mean it didn’t deserve to win. It just means you don’t like a song.

      • anonymous

        Everyone deserved it. And Of Mice & Men had the most dedicated fans. It was really close, yes, but the fans won the fight.

    • Andy

      are just insults, just words, do not kill, do not hurt and if they do, nobody cares

  • Trevor

    While all of you people are arguing over OM&M and Alesana, I’m still wondering how the hell A7X didn’t win.

  • Joeytigerz

    Does anyone know revolvers email? I feel the need to send them a very ‘nice’ message about what just happened.

    • Chris

      On the bottom of the website click on “contact”.

      • Joeytigerz

        Thanks, if I get no response or just some sarcastic remark from them I’m never going to participate in revolver’s things again. Knowing them I’ll get a reply like “lel, tough luck kid, we had a deal with rise records and we would be racking in them greens by letting OM&M win, get fkd pls.” Hahah I don’t even know.

  • foREVer Syn

    well it was a short week of voting cause i wasnt even aware of it… usually A7X updates their fans when they want our support but i guess they werent even aware of it either lol… whatev… congrats of mice &men

    • Motherfucker WAR IS THE ANSWER

      I only found out of it from Trivium.
      If A7x posted it on FB they would have raped those emo bands

  • Nevermore

    Well congratulations to OM&M I guess… even though that song is GENERIC AS FUCK.

    • Ånxîety

      I think OM&M is a great band, and the song is okay. But definitely didn’t deserve to be on this list. : /

      • NOMERCYITS THE WAY OF THE FIST

        I originally voted for KSE but then switched to A7x when I realized that Alesana and Of mice and shit were winning and A7x had the best chance of beating them

  • Devin

    I am still not sure on these guys…..I want to hate them and I want to like them, but I dont really know what I think of them. Hail To The King should have won by a long shot. Fuck Of Mice And Men…..

    • anonymous

      In my opinion, I had to choose between Avenged, FFDP, and Of Mice. It was a hard decision. But since Of Mice & Men barely has ANYTHING to do with Revolver and the fact that Revolver put them on the list, I voted for them.

  • Dizzydreamer806

    I think everyone should just stop hating and move on. It was a poll, it doesn’t make one band better than the other. The poll was based solely on fans, so chill out, if you think one song’s better then good for you, listen to that song. It doesn’t mean anything, it’s not an award, it’s a POLL!!! Congratulations to Of Mice and Men for winning they did great :D.

    • Jeremy

      IT WAS FIXED IDIOT.

      • anonymous

        No it wasn’t.

      • Dizzydreamer806

        No it really wasn’t

  • Firefox1095

    Annoying 12 year old fangirls. OM&M is a fine band but this song DIDN’T deserve to win best of 2013. If anything, this song is one of the most generic songs of 2013 and it’s far from OM&M’s best song. And it’s a disgrace that those pesky 12 year old fangirls (that only like Austin Carlile) waited to drop a last minute bomb. It’s such a goddamn disgrace.
    Honestly, this is best song of the year, not best band of the year or cutest lead singer of the year or even nicest bandmembers of the year. Them tweens need to get their priorities straight.

    • Hanna

      You can’t just conclude that the fangirls are all ‘pesky 12 year olds’.

      • foREVer

        Sorry, pesky 12-20 year olds

      • Joeytigerz

        Yeah you’re right. They also consist off 14 year old twats

    • Dizzydreamer806

      You can’t blame this on fangirls, just because you don’t like the song doesn’t mean the entire population doesn’t like it. There are plenty of people who love this song and voted for it just like any other song on here. Stop blaming “fangirls” and grow up. You’re not alone won, move on.

    • anonymous

      Am I a 12 year old fangirl who only likes Austin?
      haha I’m far from it.
      I’m 16 and I love the entire fucking band. Austin’s helped me, Aaron’s helped me, Tino’s helped me, Alan’s helped me, Phil’s helped me, and even Shayley’s helped me although he’s moved to another band (but that doesn’t matter).
      Stop stereotyping and get a life. I’m not a fucking twelve year old, I’m a sixteen year old who’s only listened to this band for 2 years and they’ve still saved my life.

  • OfMice&Menindo

    Of Mice & Men the best band forever !
    fuck the haters

    • Math

      OM&M is generic. Alesana is the most creative band in the world.

      • anonymous

        Alesana isn’t the most creative band in the world. Not saying they aren’t good, I don’t listen to them. I’m not going to look down on them though. I bet they’re an amazing band like all of the other bands on the poll.

        • Math

          if you don’t know their work, then how can you even deny my statement? How ignorant of you.

    • Milke

      Generic and stupid band plz, Alesana is much better., Fixed polls

      • anonymous

        The polls weren’t fixed, they were fair.
        And please spell correctly and use punctuation properly. How is Of Mice & Men stupid and generic? Come up with better words than just stupid and generic.
        I mean, there’s a lot of better words to describe them. Like they are life savers, inspirations, unique. There is no room for the word stupid in there.

        • Chandler

          SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR BULLSHIT ABOUT OF MICE AND MEN BEING INSPIRATIONAL AND LIFE SAVERS. Of Mice and Men WAS unique before Austin’s stupid ass came to the band. They have never been, nor will they ever be inspirational or life savers. You fucking Idiots are slobbering all over eachother’s dicks and loving a piece of shit band who’s song had NO place in the polls here. It’s literally fucking GARBAGE and serves no musical or functional purpose aside from being generic and repeating and re-spouting the same stupid fucking message as every other fucking boy band.

          • Dizzydreamer806

            Have you talked to every single of mice and men fan? No? Then shut up about saying they aren’t inspirational or lifesavers because until you know the stories and feelings of every single fan, you don’t know that. Shut up and grow up.

          • Nathan Yocum

            Am I missing something? Austin started the band.

  • Anthony Sparacino

    honestly when it comes to is, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage and A7x have put out wayyyy better songs this past year than “You’re not alone”. OM&M sound just like every other band in that scene. its all too generic.

    • Dave

      Here Here can’t stand bands that jump on the band wagon just to make money. Motorhead have never done that been playing the same stuff ever since they started and every album a classic. Without them we would not have Thrash.

    • anonymous

      I like Of Mice & Men and I also like Avenged Sevenfold and Five Finger Death Punch.

      To be honest, all three of them are just as amazing as one another. And right now I will compare Avenged to Of Mice because Avenged WAS like Of Mice now. Remember their first two albums? Yeah. Sounds like the “shit” (as you would say. I think it’s amazing) Of Mice & Men makes. Of Mice & Men and Avenged Sevenfold and Five Finger Death Punch are all amazing.

      • Todd

        Of Mice & Men actually had a really good sound before this last album, their second release “The Flood” was fucking amazing, given. They were more heavier back then, and influenced by metal and it seems like they’ve sold out to go a more Pop/Nu Metal sound.

  • Guest

    i knew the list was shit in the first place when there was no letlive or a day to remember but the winner just proves how shit it was

    • Mariana

      oh god, stop crying little baby. adtr is fucking great, but dont compare them to of mice & men, they deserved this.

      • Guest

        A generic band deserve to win? HA no

  • sjdhfkjahsdhjfgas

    Amon Amarth kiddies… let’s not act like there was any competition to begin with.

  • Anna

    Guys seriously just because Of Mice & Men won, you don’t have to hate them!
    They’re a great band and they deserve it, because they worked so hard for this.
    I don’t say, that I hate Alesana,I really like them, but the fans who say, that they won, because they had 1.7 percent more are unfair, because it’s not much and OM&M did it, they got more percents so let them and their fans enjoy this and stop hating okay ?
    Mice family ♥

    • Chandler

      Shut the fuck up

  • Milke

    Revolver you are just a piece of shit.

  • Kevin

    You can’t pick a non-generic song for this list as a big business. Then you would start to look like you had one guy pick the songs based on his own opinion. I don’t really like this song, but I wouldn’t feel like my list would be a good one to share with all the people who read this list. You have to pick pretty generic songs, and although I don’t personally care for the songs here, I understand that it’s fair and reasonable.

  • anonymous

    I love seeing my favorite band ever win. <3
    If you voted for Alesana and are butthurt about who won, get over it. It was close, but Of Mice fans stuck it out and kept going. If you don't like the choice, don't comment. Simple.

    • anonymous

      Fuck you to whoever voted down on my comment.

  • Joeytigerz

    Well it’s been a day since the close of the poll and revolver still haven’t replied to my email. Just great.

  • Tama Church

    Wh-
    How..
    I.
    Never mind.
    Alesana should’ve won.
    Just saying.
    But congratulations Of Mice and Men.

    • anon

      the new alesana song sucked but thats ok they were always crap

      • Tama Church

        oh.

  • anon

    OM&M are an okay band, not brilliant but not terrible, but by no stretch of the imagination was You’re Not Alone song of the year. There were bands that sounded far more unique and with their own sound like FFDP, KSE, Trivium etc who actually had contenders for song of the year, Trivium & FFDP put better songs out on their latest albums than the listed songs, but OM&M sound too similar to other stuff like PTV and other bands in that scene and didn’t deserve song of the year at all.

  • chandni

    OMG YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  • an0id

    havnt I head this song before 2013??..no, no, really? okay, I just thought I had is all…

    • Scenik

      It only released in December.

  • Doge

    wow
    such breakdown
    so lyrical
    much emotion
    def deserved to be song of the year

    Well, no, not really. But congratulations anyways.
    And to those out there, thanks for letting such a generic song written by a degenerating band win. Seriously, “Bones Exposed” was so much better then this. And that’s saying a lot.

  • Joeytigerz

    Still no reply from revolver after 3 or 4 days. Is it because they’re overloaded with emails that they can’t keep up with themselves, not an organised group of people or are keeping something from us? Hahah

    • Chris

      Revolver doesnt care that they screwed up with polls, lol. I dont think they are’nt gonna respond to you, There’s nothing we can do :( , but i can’t wait for Alesana’s upcoming album!

      • Joeytigerz

        Yeah you’re right, but if they were a good group of people they could at least explain what went wrong or an overview. But it doesn’t matter because chances are I won’t participate in the next poll they throw at us. But I can’t wait for the album!! They’re going to record a new ep in the next month I saw in their Facebook status so that will be interesting!

  • Barrack Obama

    I cant believe this is the song of the year, its fucking boring I prefer listening to Friday by Rebecca Black…

    • †That South African†

      HEY YOU! shut the fuck up :)

  • AlesanaFever

    Why no alesana. T_T But its ok OM&M is still a great band. :))

  • †That South African†

    it tells me to join the discussion.. so here I am.. joining the discussion!
    i love Of Mice & Men, and they played well. this song is different and different is actually okay, and I love it.

    opinions people- we all have different opinions and well you cant do a flying fuck about changing the winner, so stop complaining you shit heads

  • Scenik

    I think The Death of Me should have won…but I don’t mind this song.

  • Scenik

    I think The Death of Me should have won…but I don’t mind this song.

  • JKLR

    I remember when Revolver was all about that true metal, what you people call music now a days is trash. All these bands sound alike, minus A7X, which has also become a shitty band over the years, and Trivium, which in my own opinion is the only respectable band on that list. Wtf happend to the industry? This poppy shit has got to die out already, it’s all starting to sound the same.

  • Timmy

    Trivium should have been higher than A7X, that is all

  • Synaptic Plasticity

    I’m not surprised that all the bands that won this poll are shitty scene metalcore bands with a large amount of retarded teenagers in their fanbase. The issue is that a respected metal publication completely ignored the underground bands, especially a band as legendary and influential as Gorguts, who after 12 years came out and released the best album this year, in favour of shitty scene bands who are not even remotely metal. The only decent band on this list was Carcass, who was largely ignored as well.

    • Jason Carr

      So you’re saying Dillinger Escape Plan sucks? Wow. Stone Sour are also pretty good, not metal, but they’re a good hard rock band. Gorguts album was amazing, but I wasn’t surprised it wasn’t featured since Revolver focuses more on hard rock. What really surprised me was the lack of August Burns Red, the only great mainstream metalcore album this year.

    • guy man

      Are you actually complaining that a popularity vote didn’t go to underground bands?

  • Ramiah Emmanuel Ross

    Trivium should have been higher but I am cool with this list,

  • avril lavigne

    hey shit the fuck up (n)

  • Bruno Sifuentes Neri

    Ok in fine with OM&M wining even though i like Alesana better.
    the thing that bothers me is that all these OM&M fans are saying that they are “life savers” or that they “saved them”. I’m sure they’ll say “o you don’t know me, i’ve had depression and have self harmed myself”. OK FINE but they just make songs! nothing more! pls just say that it’s your fav band and that you are happy they won, nothing more.
