You know an album is going to be good when the first lyric starts with the word “Fuck.” In fact, it wasn’t a surprise since the album is titled, “Fuck.” Every song’s title has the word “Fuck” in it. In fact, the very first song has the word “Fuck” at least 60 times. I stopped counting and instead started to listen to the music.
This album is Buckcherry’s newest effort. Frankly, I think it’s one of their best pieces of work. I’m almost surprised that they didn’t change their name to Fuckcherry for the album.
All fucking jokes aside…
Excusing all the “fucks” on the album, musically Fuckcherry, I mean, Buckcherry, hits on all fucking cylinders. Fans will get the same gritty, bluesy rock they’ve gotten accustomed to by Buckcherry.
The highlight of “Fuck” is a cover of Icona Pop’s hit song “I Love It (I Don’t Care)” called “Say Fuck It,” in which Josh Todd and company change “I Love It” to “Say Fuck It.”
Say fuck it, I don’t care;
Say fuck it, say fuck it, I don’t care;
Say fuck it, say fuck it, I don’t care…
Although Buckcherry has had previous edgy songs like “Crazy Bitch” and “Lit Up,” “Fuck” pushes the envelope a little fucking further with songs called “I Don’t Give a Fuck” and “Fist Fuck.” They also have a rock n’ roll tune called “It’s a Fucking Disaster,” which aside from the title is really a great song that doesn’t use the f-word, I mean fuck, excessively.
Overall, “Fuck” is a fucking awesome record from a fucking awesome band who has hit fucking heights in the fucking rock industry. Sorry, I’m trying to convey how many fucking “fucks” are on this album.
If you’ve got a problem with the word “fuck,” simply change the word “fuck” to “fudge” and you’ll find that musically, Buckcherry has delivered an amazing album. It’s just more amazing when you use the word, “fuck.”
