Ever thought you'd see Nelson Mandela and Drake on the same list? There's a first for everything: Today, AskMen revealed their list of the Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2013, featuring both Mandela and Drake as top picks—amongst many others.

For the most part, every dude you'd expect to be on there is, like Kanye West, Jay Z, Bryan Cranston, and President Barack Obama (to name a few). There are a few surprises, though: Charlie Hunnam, who dominated the news for a while when he joined and then subsequently left the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie, is number 22, and Walder Frey, the fictional character from Game of Thrones who orchestrated the deaths of Robb and Catelyn Stark during the Red Wedding episode, made it to number 40. 

Perhaps the most surprising pick, however, was number one: The spot went to none other than entrepreneur Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. "Elon Musk is so ahead of his time, in fact," they explain, "that it's difficult to fully comprehend the extent of his influence. More than anyone else on this list, he is a true visionary."
