Battle Royale: The Darkness, Papa Roach Lead Four Video Countdown Debuts
There's been a major shakeup in the Loudwire's Battle Royale Video Countdown this past week, including the debut of a new No. 1 video. The Darkness, who recently had their "Barbarian" video retired from the Battle Royale after a five-week run at No. 1, are back with a new clip for "Open Fire" and the fans have sent it right to the top of the video charts this week. The real fight was for second, where Tom Keifer's "It's Not Enough" bested previous No. 1, December in Red's "Send Me a Postcard," by the slimmest of margins. Meanwhile, a little further back, Papa Roach video for "Gravity," which features a guest turn from In This Moment's Maria Brink, had the second major debut of the week at No. 4.
The Darkness and Papa Roach weren't the only countdown arrivals this week. Upstart rockers Acidic made their Battle Royale debut with "Chicago," which took the No. 5 spot, while Sworn In's "Scissors" took the No. 8 position. You can see all of the Battle Royale Top 10 videos below.
And we could be in for another sizable shakeup next week as seven new videos have entered the voting. Slash ("Beneath the Savage Sun"), In This Moment ("Sex Metal Barbie"), BabyMetal ("Road of Resistance"), Starset ("Halo"), Arch Enemy ("Stolen Life"), Everlit ("Break Away") and Johnny Wore Black ("Firefly") are all part of the voting now and you can see those clips, along with every video, 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, May 15 at 11AM ET, so make sure your favorite clip makes the Battle Royale cut.
