Top 20 Songs: Week of Dec. 30, 2012 – Jan. 5, 2013
Happy New Year, everyone! Loudwire's Top 20 Countdown begins 2013 with a familiar face holding onto the top spot. After a brief taste of the No. 1 position in late November, Shinedown fell back to No. 2 for several weeks, but is now spending its second straight week on top.
Soundgarden, Shinedown's biggest obstacle during the early-December stretch, slips back another notch this week from No. 2 to No. 33. Trading places with Chris Cornell and company is the rapidly rising Avenged Sevenfold single 'Carry On,' which is commanding the No. 2 position and could make a run at No. 1 next week.
Rounding out the top five are All That Remains' 'Stand Up' and Volbeat's 'Heaven Nor Hell,' swapping places this week. All That Remains inch another step closer to the top of the charts at No. 4, while Volbeat slide back to the No. 5 spot.
Elsewhere on the countdown, there were significant jumps this week for Adelitas Way's 'Alive' and Papa Roach's 'Where Did the Angels Go.' Adelitas Way are knocking on the door to the Top 10, patiently awaiting at No. 11 with their latest single. Meanwhile, Jacoby Shaddix's crew have seen 'Where Did the Angels Go' take flight up another two spots to No. 15 this week.
And finally, Alice in Chains has the lone new entry in the week's countdown with 'Hollow' digging in at No. 18. Look for the track to be a candidate for next week's rapid riser.
