Your Top 100 Icons

ICON - a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol or as worthy of veneration.

In April 2013, we gave you the chance to vote for your icon - the person who adorned your bedroom wall, a band who you had played at your wedding or someone who you will have played at your funeral. So many of you registered votes that the top spot was pretty much a fight to the death.

But, in the end, we finished with a full, fantastic list of artists and one top-dog.
