Revolver posted a poll earlier this month, asking our readers to vote on the Song of the Year for 2011, selecting from cuts by artists ranging from pop metallers Steel Panther to the artists behind Revolver’s Album of the Year, Korn. The turnout was unprecedented, as bands rallied their fans to help send their songs to No. 1. Below, you can watch videos for the ones that make up the Top 5 and read a quote from the artist behind the fan-picked Song of the Year—one that garnered hundreds of thousands of votes to push it to the top spot. Let us know what you think of the results in the comments.

Alesana’s Shawn Milke on Being No. 1
“On behalf of Alesana, I would like to thank our fans for displaying their undying support in helping to make ‘Circle VII: Sins of the Lion,’ the sixth chapter of our Dante Alighieri–influenced concept record A Place Where The Sun Is Silent, the Song of the Year at Revolver magazine’s website. In this chapter, our protagonist, the Wanderer, plunges hundreds of feet below the Earth in an attempt to rescue the beautiful and haunting woman he has been chasing, the Temptress. He comes face to face with an unspeakable horror, the Fiend, as he finds himself submerged and trapped in a boiling sea of blood.
“It is an incredible honor to be recognized not only by our fans, but also by the staff at Revolver. It was already a surreal feeling to be included on a list of such talented musicians and songwriters, but to walk away crowned the winner is something for which we will be eternally grateful. A special thank you to Epitaph Records, The Artery Foundation, and our amazing team of loyal followers at the Alesana Army and Alesana Art.”
