Battle Royale: December in Red + Tom Keifer Debut Big, But The Darkness Top Video Countdown
The Darkness continued their domination of the Loudwire Battle Royale Video Countdown as "Barbarian" took the top spot for the fourth straight week, moving one week away from the Battle Royale Video Countdown Hall of Fame. However, there are a couple of new contenders for the crown that's making it interesting. December in Red burst onto the countdown with "Send Me a Postcard," taking the No. 2 spot in its debut week. Meanwhile, Tom Keifer's video for "It's Not Enough" also put up significant numbers in its first week on the countdown to finish third, pushing last week's No. 2 -- Like a Storm's "Wish You Hell" -- down to No. 4.
And December in Red and Tom Keifer aren't the only debuts on the countdown. The Temperance Movement's "Take It Back" also hopped onto the countdown at No. 6 this week. There's one other point of interest in this week's countdown as the Chimpz' "California" sits at No. 5. As the longest running video on the countdown, the clip will be retired next week after one final week of voting, so make it count Chimpz fans. See the Battle Royale Top 10 videos of the week below.
What will next week bring? There's new videos entering the voting from Behemoth ("Messe Noire"), Finch ("Play Dead"), My Enemies & I ("Wolves Teeth"), Nothing More ("Jenny"), Smashing Pumpkins ("Drum + Fife") and Stars in Stereo ("Fair-weather Friend"). You can see those clips, along with every video available for voting, by clicking on the links in the poll at the bottom of this post. You can vote for next week's Battle Royale one per hour through the deadline of Friday, April 17 at 11AM ET. So get to it.
