Imagine Dragons are taking the top rock honors as "Billboard" wraps up 2013. The Las Vegas rockers came in at number one on the publication's year-end list of the Top Rock Artists. 

The band's massive year was fueled by hits like "Radioactive," which was named the best rock and alternative song of 2013.  And their smash debut album Night Visions landed at number two on the rock and alternative album tallies, finishing behind only Mumford and Sons' Babel.  

The Mumfords also popped up at number five on "Billboard's" Top Rock Artists list, while the Lumineers finished in the runner up spot.  The rest of the top five is rounded out by Lorde at number three and Phillip Phillips at number four.
