Battle Royale: Andy Black’s ‘Ribcage’ Video Enters Hall of Fame
Congrats are in order for Andy Black. The singer's "Ribcage" video has spent five weeks at No. 1, making it eligible for entry into the Battle Royale Video Countdown Hall of Fame. Black spent three weeks at No. 1, then fell back for five weeks while Alter Bridge's "Show Me a Leader" claimed the top spot, before returning to No. 1 the past two weeks.
The biggest competition came from Shinedown's "How Did You Love," which debuted at No. 2 last week, remains there this week, and is lying in wait for a shot at the top spot this coming week. Elsewhere in the Battle Royale Top 10, Avenged Sevenfold had the lone debut, arriving at No. 3 with "The Stage." That clip should also be a contender for the top spot next week. See all of the Top 10 videos below.
With Andy Black retiring and a wealth of new videos entering the voting, we could see some major movement next week. You can now vote on videos from Blink-182 ("She's Out of Her Mind"), DayShell ("Car Sick"), Devin Townsend Project ("Stormbending"), Farewell, My Love ("Inside a Nightmare"), Puscifer ("The Arsonist"), Shaman's Harvest ("Here It Comes"), Sixx: A.M. ("We Will Not Go Quietly") and Wovenwar ("Lines in the Sand"). See those videos, along with every clip available for voting, by clicking on the links in the poll at the bottom of this post. You can vote once per hour through the deadline of Friday, Oct. 28 at 11AM ET.
