buckcherryfyou640 As previously reported Buckcherry is to release the radio unfriendly Fuck EP on August 19th – with each of the six tracks featuring the four-letter word in the title.

Billboard is exclusively streaming their cover version of Icona Pop’s I Love It, renamed Say F–k It, here.

Singer Josh Todd tells Billboard that the band is “already working on a new album…We want to put a record out (every) year, like they did in the 70s,” he says. “I just want to start making 10-song records, nothing more. Ten songs once a year and just stay steady.” The group has also launched on Singles Club through PledgeMusic, where fans can receive one cover per month for six months; releases so far include the Rolling Stones’ Beast of Burden and Minor Threat’s Small Man, Big Mouth.

Fuck EP tracklist:

1. Somebody Fucked With Me
2. Say Fuck It
3. Motherfucker
4. I Don’t Give A Fuck
5. It’s A Fucking Disaster
6. Fist Fuck

  1. I like Buckcherry; I have four of their CDs, and I’m definitely a fan. However, it’s one thing to be an adult-age “rock star,” especially when one is a member of a hard rock/heavy metal band, and be rebellious in an adult manner, but it’s just plain stupid to be child-like in your rebellion, as if you’re still in your late teens or early 20s. I don’t expect Buckcherry to have a near-regal, Tony Iommi-like gentleman’s quality, but a little maturity accompanying their rebellious nature would be welcome. If I were a “rock star,” my credo, with regard to my public behavior, would be, “What would the late Ronnie James Dio have thought of this?” Of course, Dio probably wouldn’t publicly criticize a band’s behavior; that did not seem to be his way. On a personal level, though, I might care what he and a few other heavy rock icons thought of me outside of my music.

  2. Yeah, maybe it’s maturity and middle age setting in, but this kind of thing just does nothing for me anymore. I remember when Appetite for Destruction came out and it was a little shocking in songs like “It’s So Easy” and stuff, but over the years it’s become so rampant to drop f-bombs in songs there’s not even “shock value” to it anymore. Plus I have kids, so I have to be careful about what I play around them. I’d rather listen to a band that gets the message across without having to resort to vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake. Judas Priest hasn’t ever needed to resort to it, Iron Maiden hasn’t needed it, even Metallica and Megadeth don’t have that much. So I guess Buckcherry might get some kids to giggle at this EP, but it doesn’t seem like a good idea overall.

    1. You forgot about Barry Manilow, LOL! just thought of a great name for the next Buckcherry song, “I Write The ‘Fucking’ Songs”, OR, “Wake Me Up, Before You ‘Fucking’ Go-Go”! 🙂

    2. Air Supply and Wham are King Crimson and Led Zeppelin compared to Suck Cherry and their awful butt rock.

    3. No, it’s just that it’s been done before (a number of times) and doesn’t have the kind of impact it once may have. I don’t have a problem with occasional swearing in a song, but when it’s every other word or line, or in every song, or the titles, etc. it’s like, OK, what are you trying to compensate for? Are you really unable to string 5 words together without dropping “f!@#k” in there? How old are you? It’s just not the sort of thing that makes a band “cool” to me. But whatever, they can do what they want and if it works for them and their fans like it, it’s all good.

  3. they remind me of the type of people who go outta their way to tell ya how tough and badass and crazy they are, then turn out to be giant sissy’s.
