Battle Royale: Korn + Slipknot Make Their Presence Felt on Video Countdown
It’s been a back-and-forth fight most of the week between four-time Battle Royale champ — Islander‘s ‘Coconut Dracula’ — and the clip that dethroned them last week — Evergrey‘s ‘King of Errors.’ But when the final bell sounded Friday morning, Islander and ‘Coconut Dracula’ had emerged victorious at No. 1 for their fifth, non-consecutive week. Meanwhile, Five Finger Death Punch‘s ‘Wrong Side of Heaven’ video continues to put up big numbers, but finished third for the second straight week.
Elsewhere on the countdown, Black Water Rising’s ‘Dance With the Devil’ took the No. 8 spot, and as the longest tenured video, it will have one more week of voting left before retiring. Meanwhile, two big time acts — Korn and Slipknot — made their debuts with new videos. Korn’s ‘Hater’ took the No. 4 spot, while Slipknot slipped in at No. 10 with ‘The Negative One.’ And after just missing out for a few weeks, Wovenwar‘s ‘All Rise’ also broke through at No. 9. See all of the Top 10 clips below.
Who will be your Battle Royale Top 10 next week? We’ve got clips from Asking Alexandria, Limp Bizkit, Mushroomhead, Dope, Prong, For Today and Kamelot entering the voting fray.
