Battle Royale: 3 Pill Morning, Shallow Side + Andy Black Debuts Vie for Video Countdown Title
First off, congrats to Skillet, who completed five weeks at No. 1 with their "Feel Invincible" video and now retire to the Hall of Fame, but who will be the new No. 1? Last week there were three videos that seemed primed to make a run at the top spot, but they may not have been prepared for the influx of voting coming from new entries. In the end, Andy Black's "Ribcage" debuted in the top spot, fending off Shallow Side's new video for "Rebel." Michael Sweet had the top returning video with "Bizarre" at No. 3, while 3 Pill Morning's "Electric Chair" also debuted huge at No. 4.
But did you expect that half of the top 10 would turn over this week? Joining Andy Black, Shallow Side and 3 Pill Morning as fresh entries were Clutch's "A Quick Death in Texas" at No. 6 and Steve 'n' Seagulls' cover of "Aces High" at No. 10. See all of the Battle Royale Top 10 videos below.
Could there be another big shakeup coming next week? New videos from A Day to Remember ("Bullfight"), Biffy Clyro ("Howl"), Dinosaur Pile-Up ("11:11"), Giraffe Tongue Orchestra ("Crucifixion"), Metallica ("Hardwired") and Parkway Drive ("Devil's Calling") all enter the voting. See those videos, along with every video available for voting, by clicking on the links in the poll at the bottom of this post.
