Top 20 Songs: Week of February 10-16, 2013

Mary Ouellette, SheWillShootYou.com (2) The Loudwire Radio Top 20 is rocking hard this week. All That Remains  are spending a second week in the No. 1 position and holding strong, however Phil Labonte and his band may face a major challenge on next week’s charts. Deftones have been steadily moving up the charts in recent weeks and ‘Tempest’ is now knocking on the door to the top spot, moving up from No. 3 to No. 2. They flip-flop spots with former No. 1 act  Volbeat, who slide down from No. 2 to No. 3 with ‘Heaven Nor Hell.’ Alice in Chains ‘ ‘Hollow’ is also making strides toward the top of the charts, moving from No. 5 to No. 4 after a rapid ascent in recent weeks. And Young Guns make the biggest move on the charts this week, jumping up from No. 8 to No. 5 on the countdown. On the downward spiral, former No. 1 ‘Enemies’ from Shinedown slides six big notches from No. 14 to No. 20. This week also sees the debut of two new tracks. The ‘Sound City’ collaboration of Dave Grohl and Corey Taylor on ‘From Can to Can’t’ arrives at No. 18, with Soundgarden ‘s ‘By Crooked Steps’ one slot behind at No. 19. Soundgarden actually replaces one track with another as ‘Been Away Too Long’ along with Hinder ‘s ‘Save Me’ are the two songs leaving the countdown this week.

Pantera vs. Slipknot – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Semifinals

Loudwire Rock Bowl Semifinals You may need some padding after this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl semifinal matchup is complete. It’s the circle-pit favorite ‘F—ing Hostile’ from Pantera squaring off the brutality of Slipknot ‘s own slamming anthem ‘Wait and Bleed.’ Pantera eeked out the narrowest of victories against Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies’ in the first round, taking home 53 percent of the vote, but they had an easier time in the quarterfinals against Korn’s ‘Freak on a Leash,’ earning 72 percent of the final tally. With the full-force guitar work of Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul’s speedy yet powerful beats, Rex Brown’s thumping bass line and Phil Anselmo’s pent-up aggression, this song is as energetic as they come and captures the fighting spirit represented on the football field. And speaking of aggression, Corey Taylor certainly delivers while singing about the hate rising up inside of him. Much like an NFL player psyched up for competition, Slipknot ‘s ‘Wait and Bleed’ comes out of the gate ready to erupt. ‘Wait and Bleed’ easily bested P.O.D.’s ‘Boom’ in round one with 71 percent of the vote, while Slipknot also had a decisive victory in the quarterfinals against Rob Zombie’s ‘Superbeast,’ with 72 percent of the final tally. It’s Pantera vs. Slipknot in a battle to advance to the 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl semifinals and you can hear both songs below. You can vote once per hour between now and Friday (Feb. 1) at 10AM ET, so vote as often as you can.

Dave Grohl Hopes to Perform ‘Sound City’ Shows Around the World

Theo Wargo, Getty Images You can never get too much of a good thing and Dave Grohl knows that the magic provided by the Sound City Players is something that music fans need to see. After an epic performance at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month and another scheduled show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles Jan. 31, Grohl says he’s open to staging more of the star-studded concerts. The ‘ Sound City ‘ director that gathered all the talent in the first place tells Billboard , “We plan to do shows all over the world. When I came up with the idea of taking all these performers to the live stage a few months ago, my idea [was] to have video presentations between each performance. We’ll have that at the next shows.” The first two Sound City Players dates have included guest appearances from Stevie Nicks , John Fogerty , Cheap Trick ‘s Rick Nielsen , Slipknot ‘s Corey Taylor , Fear’s Lee Ving, Rick Springfield and members of Rage Against the Machine , Nirvana , Queens of the Stone Age and more. Fan-shot video of the Sound City Players featuring Corey Taylor and Rick Nielsen covering Cheap Trick’s ‘Surrender’ may be seen below. The concerts are helping to promote Grohl’s ‘Sound City’ documentary, which not only tells the story of the legendary Los Angeles recording studio but also serves as a love letter by some of rock’s greats to the idea of collaboration in a room and the bonds formed playing live music together. Grohl says, “I knew I didn’t want it to be a retrospective documentary, the history of the studio. [The story] has an emotion quality to it and it had some relevance … ‘Sound City’ has been home to so many influential albums, but also to so many beautiful stories about people and their relationships. It’s such a deeper story than a ‘Behind the Music’ that would talk about ‘Damn the Torpedoes.’ The film will screen in theaters around the world on Jan. 31, with additional screenings set up throughout the month of February.
