Battle Royale: Art of Anarchy Rebound, But Shallow Side Hold Onto Top Spot
They’re wanted men! Shallow Side‘s “Renegade” has only been on the Battle Royale Video Countdown two weeks, but they’ve spent both at No. 1. The band’s cover of the Styx classic is proving to be a video favorite, but they did get a challenge from former chart-topper Art of Anarchy, who led for a portion of the week with their clip for “The Madness,” which finished at No. 2
City of the Weak had the highest debut of the week, with their “Censor This” clip arriving at No. 4, while 9Electric‘s “The Damaged Ones” took the No. 6 spot, with Superjoint‘s “Caught Up in the Gears of Application” settling in at No. 7. It should also be noted that One Less Reason‘s “Break Me” video, No. 9 this week, has reached the “longest tenured” point for their victory lap. After one final week of voting, the “Break Me” video will be retired regardless of position. See all of the Battle Royale Top 10 below.
Meanwhile, we’ve got several new videos entering the voting. Clips from Art of Dying (“Torn Down”), Def Leppard (“We Belong”), Gone Is Gone (“Dublin”), Queensryche (“Hellfire”), Red Hot Chili Peppers (“Sick Love”), Seasons After (“Fighter”) and Dee Snider (“So What”) are now available to vote upon and you can see those videos 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, Dec. 16 at 11AM ET, so make it count.
