Battle Royale: BackWordz Featuring Craig Mabbitt Complete Hall of Fame Run on Video Countdown
Five up, five down! Congrats are in order to BackWordz as their "Statism" video featuring Escape the Fate's Craig Mabbitt just completed a five-week run at No. 1, which makes it eligible to be retired to the Battle Royale Hall of Fame. Determined not to be denied, "Statism" fought off strong weeks from James Durbin's "Smackdown,"Mudface's "Hellfoot" and DevilDriver's "Daybreak" which placed a close second, third and fourth. Mudface, after spending 15 weeks on the countdown, will also be retiring from the Battle Royale.
Elsewhere on the countdown, The Virginmarys had the big debut this week, as "Motherless Land" arrived at No. 5, while Stitched Up Heart's "Monster" just missed the Top 10 by a few votes. It should also be noted that as the longest tenured video remaining, Vajra's "3.14 (Water Mix)," which took the No. 9 spot, will also get one final week of voting before being retired. See the full Battle Royale Top 10 below.
What will next week's Battle Royale look like? With two retiring videos, it's time for a shakeup. New clips from A Day to Remember ("Bad Vibrations"), Blessthefall ("Oathbreaker"), Cane Hill ("True Love"), I See Stars ("Break") and Unlocking the Truth ("Monster") enter the voting. You can see those videos, along with every eligible clip, 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, June 10 at 11AM ET, so make sure to rally to ensure your favorite clip makes the Top 10 or even better lands the new No. 1 spot.
