ALTER BRIDGE is celebrating a victory for Fuse.TV‘s “The Battle of the Fans: Rock”. The web site hosted a poll to see which band had the best fans and, in the end, it was the AB Nation that took home the title. The band was up against the likes of SHINEDOWN, GREEN DAY and BUCKCHERRY and took on 30 SECONDS TO MARS and LINKIN PARK in the finals. With over seven million votes cast over four weeks, ALTER BRIDGE and their fans came out the victor when all was said and done.
