Battle Royale: Islander Edge The Pretty Reckless for Video Countdown Top Spot

What does the Battle Royale Video Countdown look like in a post-‘Shatter Me’ world? Islander, who have been hovering near the top of the countdown, took a big leap this week to claim the No. 1 position with their ‘Coconut Dracula’ video. The clip outlasted The Pretty Reckless‘ ‘Messed Up World’ video, which mounted a late rally to claim the No. 2 spot. Meanwhile Tom Keifer‘s ‘The Flower Song’ video, which will retire after one more final week of voting, held down the No. 3 position.

Seether made a strong push with ‘Words as Weapons’ moving up to No. 4, while Chelsea Grin had the first of two debuts on the countdown with their ‘Clockwork’ clip at No. 5. Marty Friedman had the other new arrival, with ‘Hyper Doom’ taking the No. 10 slot.

While Chelsea Grin and Marty Friedman crashed the countdown this week, who will follow in their footsteps next week? We’ve got brand new videos from Alter Bridge (‘Cry of Achilles’), Rise Against (‘I Don’t Want to Be Here Anymore’), Empress AD (‘Invisible Conductor’), Overkill (‘Bitter Pill’) and You Me At Six (‘Room to Breathe’) entering the voting frenzy.

You can see each of those videos, along with every clip available for voting, by clicking on the title in the Battle Royale poll at the upper right of this post (or at the bottom of the post for those using mobile devices). And remember, you can vote up to once per hour through the Battle Royale deadline of Friday, Aug. 1 at 11AM ET. Be sure your top clip makes the cut.
