Top songs: Papa Roach claim No.1 spot in our latest Tracks Of The Week poll
Our latest Tracks Of The Week Poll garnered the biggest amount of votes so far – more than 1,600, in fact. And the, perhaps surprising, winner is… Papa Roach!
The Californian rockers gained an impressive 644 votes for their song Still Swingin’ – streets ahead of second-placed Gwyn Ashton’s Little Girl (another surprise choice).
Third was Metallica’s version of Deep Purple’s When A Blind Man Cries, closely followed by Steel Trees’ Stoner Zombie Killer Kids.
Here are the latest results in full:
1. Papa Roach – Still Swingin’ Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix has been sidelined for the time being with voice problems – but their video for Still Swingin’ illustrates what to expect when he gets back in the game. Shaddix has been told he needs surgery to address a node on a vocal cord. Meanwhile, Papa Roach’s new album The Connection will be released on October 2.
2. Gwyn Ashton – Little Girl This is the opening track of Ashton’s new album Radiogram. The award-winning electric bluesman worked with Don Airey (Deep Purple), Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Robbie Blunt (Robert Plant) and Mark Stanway (Magnum, Phil Lynott) among others to create the 10-track record. Airey’s referred to Ashton as an “unsung hero” while Plant has called him “the king of feel and tone”. In previous outings Ashton’s worked with Ted McKenna and Chris Glen (Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Ian Gillan, MSG) and Rory Gallagher men Gerry McAvoy and Brendan O’Neill.
