AllMusic Review by

Buckcherry defied expectations by not turning into a one-hit wonder. That one hit would've been 1999's "Lit Up," a number one Mainstream Rock hit at the tail-end of post-grunge, but the L.A. quartet managed to carve a career out of peddling their Sunset Strip sleaze and saw their biggest hits arrive in the mid-2000s, when "Crazy Bitch" dominated modern and mainstream rock radio for a couple months, followed by the crossover hit "Sorry" a couple months later. These three songs are naturally the core of the 2013 compilation Best of Buckcherry, a 12-track collection that contains almost all of their singles (the notable exception is the disowned 2008 tune "Too Drunkā€¦"). The Best of Buckcherry won't change the mind of any skeptic, but anybody who loved the group's dirty, old-fashioned rock & roll will find this highlights the group at their peak.
