While most rock artists routinely pepper their inter-song audience addresses with F-words as if legally obliged, it’s surprising no one has attempted to pull the trick that Josh Todd’s Anaheim sleaze-rockers have with this six-song mini-album, and use it as a theme.
Buckcherry: Fuck EP
Californians’ punky, potty-mouthed mini-concept album.
Despite being a shameless publicity stunt, the resulting tunes are mostly pretty f***ing good. Their rewiring of Icona Pop’s _I Love It_ as _So Fuck It_ is an easy win, but _Somebody Fucked With Me_ channels spiky, staccato rage against various machines and pairs it with a winning chorus.
Motherfucker is a gut-stab of high-octane pop metal, and the hardcore assault of Fist Fuck has a no-holds-barred charm of its own. Their parents might not be so proud of them after this, but you’ll probably appreciate it.
