Battle Royale: Babymetal Enter Hall of Fame With ‘Karate’ Video
Congrats are in order for Babymetal. From the moment their video for "Karate" arrived on the Battle Royale Video Countdown, it's been a fan favorite, and now the clip has spent its fifth week at No. 1, thus making it eligible for the Battle Royale Hall of Fame. As such, Babymetal's "Karate" will retire after this week, giving other videos a shot at the top spot.
Elsewhere in the Battle Royale Top 10 this week, American Head Charge's "Let All the World Believe" reclaims the No. 2 spot. The new Backwordz video for "Statism" featuring Escape the Fate's Craig Mabbitt is the week's lone debut at No. 5. And Queensryche's "Eye9" claims the No. 6 spot in its final week of voting after being the longest tenured video on the countdown. See the full Battle Royale Top 10 below.
Look for a big shakeup next week as two of the Top 10 videos are retiring and eight new clips enter the voting. You can now vote upon videos from Megadeth ("Poisonous Shadows"), Rob Zombie ("Get High"), Thousand Foot Krutch ("Running With Giants"), Hatebreed ("Looking Down the Barrel of Today"), Beartooth ("Aggressive"), Ace Frehley with Paul Stanley ("Fire and Water"), Unlocking the Truth ("Take Control") and My Enemies & I ("Toxic"). See those clips, along with every video available for voting, by clicking the links in the poll at the bottom of this post. Fans can vote once per hour for their favorite video through the deadline of Friday, May 6 at 11AM ET. So vote often to ensure your top clip makes the Top 10 cut.
