Thousands of shirtless, tattooed and eventually sunburned music fans gathered at Columbus, Ohio's Crew Stadium to pray at the alter of rock for the sixth annual Rock on the Range festival. If you missed out on the 44-band roxtravaganza or if you just want to relive the weekend one image at a time, check out our exclusive photo galleres from Rock on the Range 2012 below.

Rock on the Range was a weekend jam-packed with hard-hitting performances from some of the biggest names in rock. From headliners Shinedown, Incubus, Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie on down to earlier performers like Theory of a Deadman, Halestorm, Volbeat and Falling in Reverse, it was an incredible lineup this year. The only problem was finding a way to see all of the bands performing on the three different stages.

Luckily for you, Loudwire had eyes and ears everywhere...we also had a camera. Check out photos from Day 1 and Day 2 of Rock on the Range 2012:
