Top 20 Songs: Week of February 17-23, 2013

Photo by Dave Ma There’s a big shakeup at the top of the Loudwire Radio Top 20 Countdown this week. Just when it seemed like Deftones were knocking on the door to No. 1 last week, the band’s single ‘Tempest’ just got leapfrogged by Alice in Chains ‘ ‘Hollow,’ which makes a major move from No. 4 to No. 1. ‘Tempest’ holds strong at No. 2 for a second week, but their chances of taking that final step to reach the top of the charts just got a little more difficult. Meanwhile, All That Remains , who held the No. 1 spot for two weeks with ‘Stand Up,’ slide back to No. 3 this week. Elsewhere in the Top 5, Young Guns inch up a spot to No. 4 with ‘Bones,’ while Volbeat ‘s former No. 1 song, ‘Heaven Nor Hell,’ falls back two more spots to No. 5. While Alice in Chains moved three big notches to the top spot, they weren’t the biggest mover of the week. That title goes to Soundgarden ‘s ‘By Crooked Steps,’ which jumped up from No. 19 to No. 13 this week. The track actually traded spots with Five Finger Death Punch ‘s ‘The Pride,’ which took the biggest tumble, falling six notches to No. 19. And yes, there is one new track on the Loudwire Top 20 Countdown. Sevendust ‘s ‘Decay’ slips in at No. 18, pushing out Shinedown ‘s former chart-topper, ‘Enemies,’ from this week’s chart. Check out the full list of top 20 songs of this week’s countdown below and be sure to tune in and crank it up to rock out to Loudwire Radio this weekend.

Gojira Give New York City a ‘Sauvage’ Performance With Support From Devin Townsend Project

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire New York is no stranger to Gojira , and the band did not disappoint during the last show of their U.S. tour. The French metallers destroyed Irving Plaza last night (Feb. 19) with help from the Devin Townsend Project and the Atlas Moth. As a makeup date for a snowed out Feb. 8 gig, the show was the band’s second consecutive concert in New York (after playing the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on Feb. 18). After numerous “Gojira” chants, the band exploded onto the stage with their aptly titled track ‘Explosia’ and went on to play other songs from their latest album like the title track ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ and ‘The Axe.’ Among the highlights of the set was drummer Mario Duplantier switching places with his frontman brother Joe Duplantier. The stickman delivered some serious guttural vocals while Joe held his own behind the drum kit. While the band did not play ‘Liquid Fire,’ an infectious song which graced previous setlists, they did play some tunes for the diehards, such as ‘Flying Whales,’ ‘Backbone,’ ‘Wisdom Comes,’ and ‘Oroborus.’ Gojira ended their set with and old fan favorite ‘Vacuity’ and a new fan favorite ‘The Gift of Guilt.’ The band as a whole continue to get better and sweatier onstage and they set the bar high when it comes to the art of forceful live performances. Devin Townsend is one of the most animated and charismatic performers you can ever see live. With significant facial expressions and mind-blowing vocals, it’s safe to say that Townsend is a truly talented (and hilarious) individual. When you combine that sort of talent with a kick-ass band, the sparks fly onstage. The chemistry and magnetism of the group as a whole is infectious, to say the least. The Devin Townsend Project performed a setlist that was far too short but included tracks like ‘More,’ ‘Kingdom,’ ’Lucky Animals,’ ‘Planet of the Apes,’ ‘War’ ‘Juular,’ and of course, ‘Grace.’ Chicago based band The Atlas Moth kicked off the night with their sludgy, metal, psychedelic sound.

Favorite Motley Crue Album – Readers Poll

Tenth Street Entertainment Motley Crue are one of the most celebrated bands in rock and they’ve certainly enjoyed a fruitful career with plenty of standout records, but which album do you consider their best? We’re asking you to let us know what was your favorite Motley Crue album in this Loudwire Readers Poll. Was it their 1981 debut album, ‘Too Fast for Love’? The disc did feature the title track as well as their longtime favorite ‘Live Wire.’ Or perhaps it was their 1983 breakout ‘Shout at the Devil,’ which began to take hold on a national level. That disc spawned the title cut, plus ‘Looks That Kill,’ ‘Too Young to Fall in Love,’ and a cover of the Beatles classic ‘Helter Skelter.’ There’s also the 1985 album, ‘Theatre of Pain,’ which featured their Brownsville Station cover of ‘Smokin’ in the Boys Room’ as well as the longtime fan favorite ‘Home Sweet Home.’ In 1987, Motley Crue gave us the raucous classic, ‘Girls, Girls, Girls,’ which featured the title track, ‘Wild Side,’ ‘You’re All I Need’ and a live version of the Elvis Presley favorite ‘Jailhouse Rock.’ There’s also the band’s stellar fifth album, ‘Dr. Feelgood,’ which gave us the title cut, plus ‘Kickstart My Heart,,’ ‘Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away),’ ‘Same ‘Ol Situation (S.O.S.)’ and the rock ballad ‘Without You.’ In the ’90s, we got two albums. The first, the self-titled ‘Motley Crue,’ is actually the only Crue disc that didn’t feature Vince Neil on vocals. John Corabi sang on ‘Hooligan’s Holiday,’ ‘Misunderstood’ and more. Neil returned for 1997′s ‘Generation Swine,’ which featured an updated version of ‘Shout at the Devil,’ plus the songs ‘Beauty’ and ‘Afraid.’ And in the 2000s, the Crue has kept things going with 2000′s ‘New Tattoo,’ a disc that spawned the single ‘Hell on High Heels,’ and 2008′s ‘Saints of Los Angeles,’ which gave us the title cut and such other favorites as ‘Mutherf—er of the Year’ and ‘White Trash Circus.’ So, with three decades worth of albums, which is your favorite Motley Crue disc? Let us know by placing your vote in the Readers Poll below: Sorry, you need to have javascript running to see this poll.
