BUCKCHERRY Spins 'Crazy' Single Into Comeback

BUCKCHERRY members Josh Todd (vocals) and Keith Nelson (guitar) recently spoke to MTV.com about the surprise success of their song "Crazy Bitch", which has reached #3 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock singles chart and #59 on the Hot 100.

"It's like sweet revenge," Todd said. "Nobody really wanted anything to do with us when we started this whole [comeback] process, and eventually we changed everybody's mind by staying on the road and putting out a record that we feel is really great. And the timing just worked out. So it's awesome that we have a second chance."

After finishing the band's latest album, "15", named after the number of days BUCKCHERRY spent recording and releasing it in Japan, satellite and Internet radio stations got copies of "Crazy Bitch" and started spinning it.

"We absolutely did not think it was the first single; in fact we were all set to go with a different song," Nelson said. "Then it became the #1 most-requested song on satellite radio and we were forced to furnish a clean version for regular radio. That was April, and ever since then it's been crazy. It's October now, and we are still talking about 'Crazy Bitch'. "

Not that he's complaining. "We've been at this long enough to know that this is a really good thing," Nelson added. "We just really hope that the depth of the record gets exploited, because we think that the record is a lot more than just 'Crazy Bitch'. "
