Battle Royale: AC/DC + Like a Storm Debut Big, But The Darkness Lead Video Countdown
There's a new Battle Royale Video Countdown champ as The Darkness rebounded in a big way to take the top spot with their video for "Barbarian." The video debuted at No. 5 two weeks ago, fell out of the Top 10 last week, but the band's fans rallied to get the clip to No. 1 this week.
In doing so, The Darkness fended off a hard charge from AC/DC's "Rock the Blues Away," which led voting early in the week. The AC/DC debut pushed Nickelback's "She Keeps Me Up" down a spot to No. 3, while last week's Battle Royale champ, RED's "Darkest Part," slipped all the way to No. 6.
AC/DC was one of two debuts this week, with Like a Storm's "Wish You Hell" being the other. The clip put up solid voting totals in its first venture onto the countdown to finish eighth. You can see all the Battle Royale Top 10 videos of the week below.
As for next week's Top 10, the voting is now open in the poll at the bottom of this post. 36 Crazyfists ("Swing the Noose"), Hollywood Undead ("Day of the Dead"), Killer Be Killed ("Curb Crusher"), The Offspring ("Coming for You") and Steve 'n' Seagulls ("You Shook Me All Night Long") are among the new videos in the voting. You can see those clips, along with every video in the voting, by clicking on the link in the poll.
This Battle Royale runs through Friday, March 27 at 11PM ET and you can vote once per hour through the deadline. So get those votes in and make sure your favorite video makes the Top 10.
