Battle Royale: Black Label Society Edge HIM for No. 1 Spot on Top 10 Video Countdown
It doesn’t get much tighter than this, but Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society edged those love metal masters HIM in this week’s Noisecreep Battle Royale Top 10 Video Countdown. Black Label Society’s fans rallied late to push the horse-tastic ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ video past HIM’s ‘Into the Night’ with 17 percent of the total vote. HIM settled for second with just shy of 16 percent of the final tally.
The video battle at the top spot shows that no one is safe, as both clips threw the Top 10 into a jumble in just their first week of competition. Last week’s No. 1, Sick Puppies‘ ‘There’s No Going Back,’ slides all the way down to No. 8 this week, showing how quickly fan voting can change.
Elsewhere in the Top 5, Papa Roach‘s ‘Leader of the Broken Hearts’ rises from No. 4 to No. 3. Former Battle Royale champ Avenged Sevenfold slips from No. 2 to No. 4 with ‘Hail to the King,’ and after falling out of the Top 10 last week, Thirty Seconds to Mars rebound nicely as ‘Do or Die’ climbs back to No. 5.
The full list of Battle Royale Top 10 videos can be seen below, and remember, your voting determines the final say. If you’re not happy with your favorite clip’s current standing, vote more frequently or rally your friends. You can vote up to once per hour until the deadline of Friday, Sept. 20 at 11AM ET. The new Battle Royale Video Countdown champ will be revealed soon after. So get to voting in our new poll at the upper right of this post.
