Top 20 Songs: Week of May 12-18, 2013
The two-week run of Device's 'Vilify' atop the Loudwire Radio Top 20 Countdown is over, which means it's time to crown a new chart champ. While Shinedown was last seen knocking on the door to No. 1 with 'I'll Follow You,' it's actually Volbeat and 'Hangman's Bodycount' that leapfrogs everyone to jump from No. 4 to No. 1 this week.
Shinedown's 'I'll Follow You' holds steady at No. 2, while Device's 'Vilify' falls back to No. 3. The Top 5 is rounded out by Alice in Chains' 'Stone,' which slides up a notch from No. 5 to No. 4 and Pop Evil's 'Trenches,' which climbs three spots from No. 8 to No. 5 this week.
The biggest climber of the week is Black Sabbath's new song, 'God Is Dead?,' which made a six-spot leap from No. 20 to No. 14 and appears to be destined for further chart success. But while Sabbath is rising, Dave Grohl and Corey Taylor are falling. The 'Sound City' duo begin their descent down the chart, slipping from No. 3 to No. 6 this week.
Elsewhere on the countdown, Thirty Seconds to Mars make their initial indentation from the 'Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams' album as 'Up in the Air' slips in at No. 20 this week. The song's arrival means we can say farewell to Halestorm's former chart-topper, 'Freak Like Me,' which falls out of the Top 20.
