Buckcherry's first studio album in four years, "Fifteen", sold just over 26,000 copies in its first week of release in the United States to debut at position No. 48 on next week's The Billboard 200 chart.

"Fifteen" -- which was originally issued in Japan last October -- showcases the guitar-driven, bluesy-rock with the hard edge Buckcherry is known for. Co-produced by guitarist Keith Nelson with Mike Plotnikoff and Paul DeCarli, the album is filled with highlights like "Out Of Line" as well as "Sorry", a ballad co-written by Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith).

When Buckcherry parted ways in 2002 after the demise of DreamWorks Records, the band took the time to reassess their future direction. "We were pulled apart by so many outside forces that took us away from what we set out to do," Nelson explains. Singer Josh Todd and Nelson reunited to play a benefit for the late drummer Randy Castillo, after which they were recruited by Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum to play in the now infamous GN'R project that eventually evolved into Velvet Revolver. "By the end, I was spent dealing with all the egos, I needed some time off," explains Nelson, who received a co-writing credit on Velvet Revolver's "Dirty Little Thing".

The duo continued to write songs, explains Todd. "It made us realize how fun it was to be in a band again; we focused on what mattered, the music." Revitalized and inspired after recruiting D., Muriel and Ashhurst, the band recorded "Fifteen" in 15 days. "Buckcherry is a rock 'n' roll band. We wanted to get the vibe back which made us so explosive," says Todd. "We went into the studio and vowed not come out until we had a successful, ass-kicking, career-defining album."

    What the **** are you talking about!?! The wrong idea about shit? What does that even mean? Buckcherry are cool in my book. "Lit Up" is an awesome song, and that new one "Crazy Bitch" is alright too.

    Buckcherry is a very average band. This is just a publicity stunt. The NEW TOOL SINGLE RULES THOUGH.

    I never heard of them until the local radio station started playing "Crazy Bitch." Very, very sub-par.

    Buckcherry why dost I hate thee? Let me count the ways. 1. Pretentious punks with a lead singer who can do nothing but yell and scream as a miserably poor compensation for his dismally failed ability to produce good vocals. Don't get me wrong, I like screamers, and I can think of some awesome examples: Puddle of Mudd, Disturbed and Tool to name but a few. But these guys basically just exploded onto the scene with this psychotic delusion that their product might actually be unique and interesting. 2. New spin on a same tired old theme: Horny guy with a chick crazy enough to think he's all that (pun intended). Face it, losers. Metallica you'll never be. Sad but true. I just hope that like some fugly wart you flake off and die just as quickly as this song popped up. 3. They are nothing more than a pack of predators who think they are God's Gift (omfg puke) You do nothing but contribute to the idea that women are just nothing more than pieces of a**. Well then just like every other unhealthy predator have fun in getting every last STD that you deserve. You disgust me. If I hear Crazy B**** even one more time I am gonna shoot my (expletive) radio. Nothing more than pack of predators who think they are God's Gift (omfg puke). They actually told our local Seattle rock station they were "looking for a couple of cute Seattle chicks" to "show them around". Now the rockstar wishtheycouldbes feel they have a sense of entitlement. OMFG. Just go away FREAKS! All right! You bring me down, cuz you got a lovely face And I'm a charity case Hope I don't freak you out Tryin so hard, but I'm ****in lame You ask me to stay, but really you want me to get away Hey You're a crazy bitch And I thought I was on top of it In my dreams, I'm doin you so right But I just can't seem to please you no matter what I do Hey You're a crazy bitch You must be cuz I look like sh** In my dreams, I'm doin you so right But I just can't seem to please you no matter how hard I try Take it ALL, I just hope it's enough But I know it's probably not Another one night failed again, damn You're so fine, I know you feel a loss I'll keep tryin, but I'm ready to give it up Hey You're a crazy bitch And pardon me if I look like sh** In my dreams, I'm doin you so right But I just can't seem to get it no matter what I do You're a crazy bitch And I'm a stupid dick Stupid dick Stupid...
