Welcome, music fans, to this week's round up of the best new rock music the world has to offer. In this week's selection we have Whitesnake proving the old adage that it's always 1987 somewhere with new single Shut Up And Kiss Me, as well as the comeback single from Brit-rockers The Wildhearts, taken from their first new album in a whopping 10 years. There's an entry from alt-rock royalty supergroup Filthy Friends, made up of members of R.E.M. and Sleater-Kinney among others, plus the best from the worlds of stoner metal, punk rock, blues rock, southern-tinged grunge rock and much more. But for now, it's time to announce the winners of last week's vote. Congratulations to the three acts below, particularly to Dallas-based rockers Drudge, who scooped top place.
3. O.R.k. ft Serj Tankian - Black Blooms
2. Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard - Yn Ol I Annwn
1. Drudge - Tunnel Vision
