Battle Royale: Rival Sons Claim Top Spot; Slipknot Debut Strong on Video Countdown
The names are familiar, but the order has changed! After a strong debut on the Battle Royale Video Countdown last week, Rival Sons' clip for "Electric Man" made the leap from No. 3 to No. 1 this week. Meanwhile, last week's chart topper, Tom Keifer's "It's Not Enough," slipped a notch to No. 2. And onetime Battle Royale champ, December in Red's "Send Me a Postcard," rallied again to take the No. 3 spot.
The biggest debut of the week came from Slipknot, as "Killpop" burst onto the Battle Royale Video Countdown at No. 4 and could be primed to move up in the coming weeks. Also new to the Battle Royale is Finger Eleven's "Wolves and Doors" video, which claimed the No. 8 spot in its first week. See the full Battle Royale Top 10 below.
