Hollywood, California bad boys Buckcherry are at it once again.  Taking time out to records a themed EP while still touring behind their gem “Confessions, these guys pour their heart, soul, and attitude into six songs that all contain the F word in the title.  “Somebody Fucked With Me” is a rocker that is long on riffs and attitude.  Josh Todd’s familiar vocals instantly grab you and force you to pay attention.  The addition of guitar, bass, and drums is icing on the cake.  “Say Fuck It” is a redux of the Icona Pop track “I Love It” that takes a piece of 2014 pop sweetness and twists it to sound like classic Buckcherry.  “The Motherfucker” is a cool piece that relies heavily on the guitar attack of Keith Nelson and Stevie D, while giving the rhythm section room to run.  The attitude in the vocals weaves itself into the track, like any strong track from the bands catalog.  “I Don‘t Give A Fuck” adds a sleazy groove, compliments of drummer Xavier Muriel and bassist Kelly LeMieux.  The guitar riffs are cool and fill the bridges and breakdowns, but the pounding bottom end anchors this track.  “It’s A Fucking Disaster” starts off as a mellow track that slows the tempo and the attitude without affecting the emphasis of the thought and attitude on the disc.  Soon this love gone wrong song adds energy and a big middle finger to the collection of songs.  “Fist Fuck” is one of the more punk tracks these guys have put together.  The vibe is balls to the wall pissed of from first note to last.  The guitars mesh well with the vocals and the pounding bass and drums add that little bit of pissed off to end the disc on a great ‘fucking’ note.
