Disgruntled by the past decade of introspective alternative rock, Buckcherry aim to bring back the once-heralded elements of ego and attitude. Combining the southern swagger of the Black Crowes and the fist-in-your-face confrontation of Guns N' Roses, Buckcherry's self-titled debut makes it clear that they're the stars -- and that their listeners' job is to sit back and watch the fireworks. "I love the cocaine, I love the cocaine," gloats vocalist Joshua Todd on "Lit Up," celebrating celebrity to the hilt. But unlike, say, Jesse Camp, Buckcherry have mastered the art of combining melody and mayhem, and while their sound can be derivative at times, their rhythms strike an electric, rebellious chord. Even when lamenting bad relationships, as in "Crushed" and "For the Movies," they do so with the kind of brash energy that ends in trashed hotel rooms and showers of broken glass. Like Aerosmith and the Toxic Twins, when they were still toxic, Buckcherry demonstrate that sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll are a lot more fun than even the most lucrative nine-to-five desk job.
