On their seventh full-length album, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Los Angeles quintet Buckcherry staunchly uphold the commandments of rock music with an arsenal of new anthems primed to explode on impact and teeming with riotous energy, sexy swagger, and primal chops intact. It’s something that the boys have done since day one, but it’s more necessary now than ever. Buckcherry have added fuel to the rock genre’s fire for nearly two decades now. The Grammy Award-nominated multi-platinum outfit is responsible for smashes including “Lit Up” off their gold-certified 1999 self-titled debut as well as “Crazy Bitch” and “Sorry” from 2006’s platinum 15.
P.O.D. (Payable on Death) formed in San Diego, CA, in 1992, and have since charted their own course with worldwide sales exceeding 10 million, hugely successful international tours, and a series of chart-topping radio hits. Over the span of two decades they have released eight studio albums of original songs – including the triple-platinum Satellite – seen chart success with more than a dozen Rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation,” and “Boom,” the Active Rock hit “Beautiful” and their No. 1 single, “Lost In Forever,” received three GRAMMY Award® nominations, and racked up four No. 1 music videos. P.O.D. released their ninth studio album, The Awakening (T-Boy/UMe), on August 21, 2015.
A major player throughout the post-grunge boom of the late ‘90s, Lit formed in 1990, where it initially performed metal-influenced music under the name Razzle. After changing their name, Lit began embracing a spunky brand of punk-pop that helped attract a local following in California. They then landed a contract with RCA Records, which released A Place in the Sun that proved to be Lit’s breakthrough record, as the catchy rock riffs of “My Own Worst Enemy,” “Zip-Lock,” and “Miserable” all paved the way for platinum sales.
Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. Over the course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units with four top 10 singles. The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high profile 2001 runs with Linkin Park, Papa Roach, and Warped. From the beginning, the clever humor of vocalist Dryden Mitchell and guitarist Terry Corso has delivered visual imagery that made the band vanguards in the realm of music video. All of their singles released received heavy rotation on MTV and MTV2, with “Smooth Criminal” being voted the #2 video of 2001 on MTV’s countdown. With all the notoriety also came a 2001 Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance.
