2013 was a historic year, with the government shut down, a brand new Pope, Breaking Bad ending its glorious television run and the Red Sox winning their first World Series at Fenway Park since 1918. But we know what you’re really thinking: Damn, it sure was a great year for butts! That’s right; donks, rumps, bums, backsides. Whatever you want to call it, there sure were a lot of them in the news this year. Just look at twerk titan Miley Cyrus, the ever-pantsless Rihanna and new mom Kim Kardashian. Lady Gaga even used a portrait of her derriere as the cover art for her new single! That’s why we’ve put together this comprehensive bracket of the most beautiful and influential butts of 2013. Check out your choices in the gallery above, and then head below to cast your vote!

We’re going bracket-style with this competition, with the eight winners from this week’s poll going head to head next week, four the week after, and so on. By New Years Eve, we will have officially crowned the Rear of the Year. So what are you waiting for? Head up to the gallery, choose carefully, and cast your vote! Enjoy your look back (*rimshot*) at 2013.
