Super Bowl XLVII, featuring the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Baltimore Ravens, is just around the corner, and we've got football fever. And what goes better with some bone-crushing, hard-hitting gridiron action that some truly amped-up, adrenaline-fueled riffing and rocking. That's what you'll find in the 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, where we pit 16 football-ready tracks into a matchup to determine which song gets you hyped for some pigskin action the most.

With only 16 songs, there will be some tough choices made. There are a number of tracks in our first round that are already stadium anthems and there's no shortage of big name acts vying for gridiron domination. There are rock vets like Metallica and Pantera seeking a Loudwire Rock Bowl victory with some of their classic songs, but they'll have to get past next generation cuts from Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat. What songs will emerge victorious? That's for you to decide.

You can vote in each of the eight first round matches every hour until Sunday, Jan. 27 at 11:59PM ET. After a few more rounds, the 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl winner will be crowned Feb. 4 -- the day after Super Bowl XLVII. Click on the button below to start voting in the eight Round 1 matchups:
