The Rolling Stones - Rolling Stones, Lou Reed And David Bowie Top Biggest Pop Moments Poll

Veteran stars including The Rolling Stones and David Bowie have proved they are still top of the pops by leading a poll of the biggest music moments of 2013.

The Brown Sugar hitmakers' headlining set at Britain's iconic Glastonbury festival in June (13) - their first ever appearance at the event - came first in the U.K. survey.

The death of Lou Reed in October (13) was voted second, and Bowie's surprise release of a new album in March (13) has come third. The top five was rounded out by British pop stars MCFly and Busted forming supergroup MCBusted, and Adele scooping an Academy Award for her Skyfall theme.

Miley Cyrus' headline-grabbing twerking antics at the MTV Video Music Awards in August (13) just scraped into the top 10 at number seven, and British boyband Jls' split announcement only managed ninth place in the survey for free music streaming service Blinkboxmusic.com.

Hit boyband One Direction only managed one entry - their movie One Direction: This Is Us came in at a lowly number 20.

Blinkbox boss Rowan Adams says, "Whilst most Brits think it hasn't been a golden year for pop, the same can't be said for seasoned pros the Rolling Stones, who claim the biggest music moment of 2013. The question is, will we be talking about One Direction's Glastonbury show in 50 years' time?"
