Buckcherry - 15



I'm not even sure how to open this review. I honestly never really thought of Buckcherry as a real band. I didn't know others thought they were legit until a couple months ago. I think they played Summerfest or something, and a few people I know were fairly pumped to go see them. I just assumed it was for their potty mouth novelty tracks, but it didn't seem to be. I was floored. Regardless, they formed in 1995 in Los Angeles, California. They have a bit of a sorted and complicated history...and it's not overly exciting - so I won't go into it in any sort of detail. Just know they took a fairly long break after a couple underwhelming albums. They reformed in 2005 and dropped this, the '15' album. It dropped in April of 2006 and became pretty much an instant success both commercially and critically. The album sits a single platinum today. The praise was quickly transferred into anger, as in September of 2006 they were sued by a 16 year old girl claiming she was coerced into performing topless and forced to appear in various sexual positions on stage. Buckcherry and the label won the suit because the girl falsified her information, stating she was 18. But even with the "win", the regular person begged the question of, "why do they need that kind of behavior anyhow?" And for the most part, I'd tend to agree with the common man. All in all though, this is a hyped up version of punk rock type music with dirty lyrics. It's not really my cup of tea. The song 'Crazy Bitch' is probably just as irritating to me as it is dumb and disrespectful to women. I'll stick with thinking they suck, and call it a day.
