Buckcherry is a hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1995. The band released two albums, "Buckcherry" (1999) and "Time Bomb" (2001), before dissolving in the summer of 2002.

In 2005, lead vocalist Josh Todd and lead guitarist Keith Nelson reformed Buckcherry and released a new album on April 16, 2006, "15." It contained Buckcherry's biggest crossover hits to date, "Crazy Bitch", and their first Billboard Hot 100 top ten hit, "Sorry".

The band released its self-titled debut in 1999 to critical praise and certified gold sales. The album, produced by Terry Date (Soundgarden/Mother Love Bone/Pantera/Steve Jones), included three modern rock chart hits in "Lit Up", "For the Movies", and "Check Your Head". "Time Bomb" was Buckcherry's second album and the last with the original line-up. It was produced by John Travis and released on March 27, 2001 by DreamWorks Records.

In August 2001 after tension over the musical direction started to set in, Jonathan Brightman, Yogi Lonich, and Devon Glenn each successively left Buckcherry. However, Josh Todd and Keith Nelson planned to continue Buckcherry, and even began the writing process for a third album. It was during those sessions that Josh Todd unexpectedly left the band in July 2002, seemingly leading to Buckcherry's demise.

"15" their third studio album and the first with a new line-up, was released on October 17, 2005 in Japan and on April 6, 2006 in North America. The album has been certified Platinum by the RIAA for sales of 1,000,000 copies surpassing their debut album. After 98 weeks on the Billboard 200, the album became the first Buckcherry album to reach the Top 40, peaking at 39.

On September 16, 2008, the band released their fourth album, "Black Butterfly," which debuted at number 8 on the top 200 charts. Buckcherry released their fifth studio album, titled "All Night Long," on August 3, 2010. The first single from the album, "All Night Long", was released to rock radio on May May 24.

The album has debuted at #10 on the Top Billboard Top 200 Album chart and was the #1 Rock debut. The single has broken in to the Top 10 of the Mainstream Rock radio chart, landing at #9.
