There's still plenty of time left in 2013, but the year is already off to a rocking start and we wanted to highlight the songs that we feel will remain staples in our playlists for the immediate future, as well as years to come.

On this list, you'll find a broad representation of the artists who've made the hard rock scene so special over the years, as well as some of the newer acts who offer such promise for the future of the genre.
