Battle Royale: Operation: Mindcrime Hold Off Shinedown on Video Countdown
Operation: Mindcrime are putting together a solid run atop the Loudwire Battle Royale Video Countdown. For the third straight week, "Re-Inventing the Future" claimed the top spot, but there was a new challenger hot on their heels. Shinedown's "Cut the Cord" saw a spike this week and put on a late push to take the No. 2 spot. The Darkness, who have spent five straight weeks at No. 2, slipped a notch to No. 3 with "Last of Our Kind."
Elsewhere on the countdown, Buckcherry made their entry into the Top 10 as the "Tight Pants" video debuted at No. 8. The video was the lone debut in the Top 10 this week, but shows great promise of climbing even higher after a late push catapulted them into the Top 10. See all of this week's Top 10 videos below.
Will there be a shakeup next week? New videos from Soulfly ("Archangel"), Skindred ("Under Attack"), The Struts ("Could Have Been Me"), Awaken the Empire ("Cross My Heart"), Four Year Strong ("Stolen Credit Card"), Earthside featuring Lajon Witherspoon ("Mob Mentality"), QUOR ("Let's Rise") and TesseracT ("Survival") enter the voting. See those clips and all of the video in the voting 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, Sept. 18 at 11AM ET.
