Artist: Buckcherry

Too Drunk ~ Buckcherry

Buckcherry was formed in 1995 after vocalist Josh Todd (formerly of Slamhound) met guitarist Keith Nelson through their tattoo artist after discovering a common love of AC/DC. The duo made a few demos before being joined by bassist Jonathan Brightman and drummer Devon Glenn, calling themselves Sparrow. Sparrow began performing around the Hollywood club scene, receiving a strong, local following due to their old school Rock N’ Roll vibe, and they were signed to DreamWorks Records shortly after. The group changed its name to “Buckcherry” after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from a record label called Sparrow, with Buckcherry created by taking the first letters in Chuck Berry and rearranging them. (Initially, however, the group said it was inspired by a drag queen acquaintance of theirs named Buck Cherry.)

Josh Todd unexpectedly left the band in July 2002, seemingly leading to Buckcherry’s demise.

Josh Todd and Keith Nelson did perform together along with ex-Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum (also of The Cult) at the Randy Castillo tribute concert. Speculation ensued that Todd would become the lead singer of the “Project” headed up by Slash, McKagan, and Sorum. Todd spent a month in the studio, reportedly completing 10 songs, but was abruptly dropped from the project by Slash. Todd was quoted as saying, “It was amazing, the band was slamming, and then Slash just came in one day and just shit-canned the whole thing.” Scott Weiland of the Stone Temple Pilots was eventually chosen to helm the band that would become known as Velvet Revolver. Nelson was given a songwriting credit on Velvet Revolver’s track “Dirty Little Thing.” Keith Nelson then went on to write and produce on various records including Capitol records artist “Huck Johns” single “Ohyeah” on “Huck” released in 2006.

Too Drunk

I hit the bottle in the morning in the summertime
I quit my job ‘cuz it gets in the way
I find a party by the ocean, buy the cheapest wine
Call up my friends to come and waste the day

I got a dimebag, corduroys, colored sleeves
And a bindle and some LSD
Now I’m just looking for a girl to meet
To help me to forget my name

I could spend my lifetime getting high
Never wanna live in a suit and tie
Most of us are just living a lie
That’s why we get fucked up everynight

I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day
Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
I’m sorry but I have to say

I’m too drunk to fuck

Now the party was jumping, and the girls were fine
With their lipstick, summer glaze
I got so many women coming after me
I put some pussy on layaway

I was smoked out, tore up, drunk as fuck
And I wouldn’t want to change a thing
Young and dumb and full of cum
With a sugar-loaded candy cane

I could spend my lifetime getting high
Never wanna live in a suit and tie
Most of us are just living a lie
That’s why we get fucked up everynight

I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day
Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day

Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day
Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
I’m sorry but I have to say

I’m too drunk to fuck, yeah
Oh yeah, I’m too drunk to fuck, yeah

I can’t eat, can’t sleep, and I’m bored as fuck
And the girl I want just walked away
She just found out I’m too drunk to fuck
Looks like I’m not getting laid

I could spend my lifetime getting high
Never wanna live in a suit and tie
Most of us are just living a lie
That’s why we get fucked up every night

I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day
Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day

Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
Oh, I’ll get drunk all day
Oh, I’ll get drunk all night
I’m sorry but I have to say

I’m too drunk to fuck, yeah
Yeah, no, I’m too drunk to fuck, yeah
I’m too drunk to fuck, yeah
Somebody help me
Lord have mercy, somebody help me
I can’t fucking breathe, I’m too drunk to fuck
