Readers Poll Results: Who Should Play the Super Bowl in 2013?

Last week, in the wake of Madonna's semi-controversial Super Bowl halftime show performance, we asked you to tell us what rock band you'd like to see headline next year's show.

While the surging Van Halen -- who are currently going head-to-head with Adele for the number one album spot on the Billboard charts this week -- made a good run at the top spot on our poll, your winner clearly shows that you feel like the Super Bowl is overdue for some heavy metal during halftime.

After all, what's going to get the players pumped up more for the second half, Madonna or AC/DC ripping into "Thunderstruck"?

Read on to check out your top 10 picks to play next year's Super Bowl Halftime Show.
