Battle Royale: Saliva’s Big ‘Rise’ on Video Countdown
It was a close competition, with four videos in contention for the top spot leading into the final day, but Saliva‘s ‘Rise Up’ pulled ahead and emerged victorious, unseating two-time Battle Royale champ The Pretty Reckless. The Pretty Reckless’ ‘Heaven Knows’ video took at tumble to No. 4 this week.
Saliva’s biggest challenge came from Michael Sweet, who held down the No. 2 position for the third week in a row with ‘I’m Not Your Suicide,’ while Tom Keifer enjoyed the biggest debut of the week, with ‘The Flower Song’ clip landing at No. 3. Rounding out the Top 5 was Korn‘s politically-charged ‘Spike in My Veins’ video.
Tom Keifer wasn’t the only debut this week, as Pop Evil‘s ‘Torn to Pieces’ cracked the countdown at No. 9. Meanwhile, Bullet for My Valentine‘s ‘Raising Hell’ made a big rebound to re-enter the countdown at No. 6. You can see all of the Top 10 videos of the week below.
