Bent/stuck valves, broken valve springs, faulty/broken rocker arm pivots, collapsed lifters, extreme over-revving or the engine backfiring are some possible causes for bent pushrods.

Bent pushrods don't even come close to being a reason to rebuild or replace the entire engine. At this point, even pulling the head may be overkill if it was just something like a mis-tuned engine was simply back-firing.
Figure out what caused it, you may not need to do anything more than replace the pushrods and tune it up.
