BackWordz have a hit video on their hands as “Statism” just topped the Battle Royale Video Countdown for the fourth straight week. The video, which includes a guest turn from Escape the Fate‘s Craig Mabbitt, now stands one week away from being retired to the Battle Royale Hall of Fame, which happens after five weeks spent on top. As has been the case the last few weeks, BackWordz biggest challenge has come from James Durbin‘s “Smackdown,” which once again locked down the No. 2 spot.

Elsewhere on the countdown, DevilDriver led this week’s debuts as “Daybreak” put up solid first week numbers to land at No. 3. Vimic‘s “She Sees Everything” claimed the No. 5 spot and Sick Puppies‘ “Stick to Your Guns” arrived at No. 7. Meanwhile, it should be noted that as the longest tenured video on the Battle Royale, Mudface‘s “Hellfoot,” which placed fourth this week, will get one final week of voting before being retired. See the Battle Royale Top 10 below.

There’s a chance for some big turnover next week and you’ll have a say in what happens. New videos from Asking Alexandria (“Here I Am”), Death Angel (“Lost”), Gojira (“Silvera”), Gone Is Gone (“Starlight”), Sinsaenum (“Army of Chaos”), Stitched Up Heart (“Monster”), The Virginmarys (“Motherless Land”) and The Winery Dogs (“Captain Love”) enter the voting. See those clips, along with every video available to vote upon, by clicking on links in the poll at the bottom of this post. You can vote once per hour through the deadline of Friday, June 3 at 11AM ET, so make those votes count.
