Buckcherry made a name for themselves in 1999 with the infamous semi-hit single, "Lit Up," which was a very explicit ode to the joys of cocaine use, from their self-titled debut. The band's aggressive aesthetic was not exactly embraced by everyone, but the fact is, in those times of the post-grunge era, emotional garbage was clogging the radio and Buckcherry's strict adherence to old school hard rock moves may have hardly been fashionable, but at least they were genuine. The band's follow-up album, Time Bomb did not sell well. Not surprisingly, the Buckcherry brand of retro hard rock, steeped in AC/DC, early Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses, became somewhat fashionable again, with the rise of the Darkness, the formation of post G'N'R and Motley Crue-spawned supergroups (Velvet Revolver, Brides of Destruction), as well as a rash of underground hipster bands all playing loud, abrasive C*ck rock. This prompted the band to record a third album, 15, which featured the characteristically anti-social lead single, "Crazy Bitch."
