Battle Royale: Bullet for My Valentine Debut Big, Butcher Babies Reclaim Video Countdown Top Spot
Butcher Babies are not done with No. 1. The band’s video for “Igniter,” which spent three weeks at No. 1, has reclaimed the top spot this week on the Battle Royale Video Countdown. However, as the longest running video on the countdown, one way or another the clip is about to be retired. If they top the Battle Royale next week, they’ll enter the Battle Royale Hall of Fame, while if not, they’ll be retired as the longest tenured clip.
Elsewhere on the countdown, The Virginmarys became the big gainer, as “Into Dust” moved from No. 6 to No. 2. Meanwhile last week’s No. 1 — Asking Alexandria‘s “The Black” — slipped the furthest, dropping to No. 8. As for the debuts, Bullet for My Valentine‘s “Worthless” enjoyed a big opening week, arriving at No. 3. Meanwhile, Alesana‘s “Comedy of Errors, Pt. 2″ takes the No. 6 spot and the Winery Dogs “Hot Streak” slipped in at No. 9. See the Battle Royale Top 10 Videos below.
While Butcher Babies go for No. 1 again next week, they’ll have competition. New videos from Buckcherry with Gretchen Wilson (“The Feeling Never Dies”), Black Dahlia Murder (“Threat Line No. 3″), Madame Mayhem (“Left For Dead”), Entombed A.D. (“The Winner Has Lost”) and Mudface (“Hellfoot”) all enter the voting. See those clips, along with every Battle Royale video, by clicking on the links in the poll below.
