After winning four increasingly hard-fought battles, Rush are the champions of the 2013 Ultimate Classic Rock Bowl, defeating fellow finalists Guns N Roses in an epic duel that saw nearly 200,000 votes cast.

At the start of the month, 16 of classic rock’s biggest bands were paired off in a series of week-long single elimination battles. Rush defeated Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith and Van Halen in the first three rounds before toppling Guns N’ Roses by capturing 57% of the votes to be crowned the kings of the genre.

Axl Rose and company should be proud of their performance, as they defeated three of the most legendary bands in rock history: Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles to make it to the finals. The group offered “a BIG Facebook THANK YOU for all the fan support in the Ultimate Classic Rock Bowl” on their Facebook page.

Rush fans celebrated the victory on their heroes’ Facebook page, with messages such as “epic win!” and “Congrats on the win guys…well deserved!” filling the comments section.

We’re extremely grateful to everyone who participated in this competition throughout the month. All told, over 640,000 votes were cast in the 2013 Ultimate Classic Rock Bowl.
