While countless publications are claiming “The End Of Men” is here, we obviously disagree. To prove the cynics wrong, AskMen put together their 7th annual list of the past year’s Top 49 Most Influential Men. In fact according to Ask Men, "this year’s list confirms that men are not only still a major force of impact in today’s society but they are overcoming adversity by reinventing themselves in a society that is ever-changing."

So who are you hoping to see on the list? Of course the obvious are accounted for; heartthrob Ryan Gosling, internet sensation Psy, and funnyman Seth MacFarlane all made the cut as predicted. But what we loved about this list were the suprises. Here are some of our favorites. Be sure to check out AskMen.com for the full list.
