Buckcherry apparently really likes the word 'fuck'. On August 19, they released a brand new EP simply called 'Fuck' via their own record label -F-Bomb Records. Warning: If you don't like cuss words -stop reading now. There's no censoring an EP called "Fuck", where every title says "fuck" in it.
Over all, the EP doesn't stand out all that much. Aspects of it, are great, but to quote Buckcherry themselves -I Don't Give A Fuck. Clearly they don't either, because in the song, "I Don't Give A Fuck", it feels as though that is the only lyric in the song. That's not the case, of course, but it feels very repetitive like that.
In all seriousness, the EP is just 'alright.' Its basically a big 'fuck you' to the world. To everyone that's ever done them wrong. My only question is did you really need six songs about this? "Someone Fucked With Me" could have been enough, in my opinion.
Going back to the point that said this EP doesn't stand out at all. "Its A Fucking Disaster" does stand out quite a bit on its own. Because a lot of people probably could relate to it. It appears to be about when everything is going wrong, and you simply do not know what to do. Its a feeling everyone can relate to.
The best song on the EP though is actually a cover. Buckcherry covered Icona Pop's "I Love It" and turned it into, "Say Fuck It." Its actually quite fitting, due to the fact that the original song says things like, "I threw your shit into a bag, and pushed it down the stairs. I crashed my car into a bridge." Clearly, while they don't care, they also said "fuck it, I'm doing this stuff." They did a great job with this cover! They also threw in a reference to their own song, by saying "I'm from the seventies, you're a crazy bitch." That lyric is in place of the original lyric; which says, "You're from the seventies, but I'm a nineties bitch."
Its an alright EP. Its kind of worth the money, kind of not. I personally give this album three stars, because its decent, but not amazing. You decide for yourself though, what you think. Also, keep in mind that you can catch Buckcherry on the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival along side Godsmack, Pop Evil, Seether, Escape The Fate and more through September 21, 2014.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
