Battle Royale: Five Finger Death Punch Rising on Video Countdown
Kudos to Stryper, who have had their second straight video reach the maximum of 10 weeks atop the Battle Royale Video Countdown. This time it was ‘Sympathy’ that achieved the mark, only faltering once during its Battle Royale run. The clip joins Stryper’s ‘No More Hell to Pay’ in the Battle Royale Hall of Fame.
Elsewhere on the countdown, Tom Keifer‘s ‘Solid Ground’ and Korn‘s ‘Spike in My Veins’ flip-flop, with Keifer moving up to No. 2 and Korn sliding back to No. 3. Meanwhile, Dead By April’s ‘As a Butterfly’ holds at No. 4, while Michael Sweet jumps back up to No. 5 with ‘I’m Not Your Suicide.’ As for new videos on the countdown, Five Finger Death Punch‘s ‘House of the Rising Sun’ jumps into the fray with the highest debut of the week at No. 6 and Riotgod crack the Top 10 at No. 7 with ‘Driven Rise.’
Next week’s Battle Royale could see an even bigger shakeup with Stryper retiring and new videos from Sebastian Bach, Black Label Society, Buckcherry, Fuel, The Pretty Reckless and Shinedown joining the voting frenzy.
