Buckcherry Premieres “Our World” on LKL Blog!

Posted: 07:20 PM ET

Editor’s note: Buckcherry is helping the victims of the oil spill catastrophe by donating proceeds of their new song to NRDC’s Gulf Coast recovery fund.

As musicians who have the benefit of the spotlight from time to time, we feel it is our duty to aid in raising awareness and financial support to help remedy the awful situation in the Gulf Of Mexico.

I see what's happening on the news everyday and how it only gets worse.  I think of my future and my children's future and we need to do something.  My band, Buckcherry, wrote a song called "Our World" for our upcoming album.  The song touches upon the environmental crisis that plagues the world every day.

A few weeks after writing and recording the song, the oil spill occurred.  We recently went back into the studio to re-write the lyrics based on what was happening in the Gulf.  We released this version exclusively on iTunes and are donating the proceeds to those affected by this disaster.  People can also visit to donate to the cause.

It is so important that each and every one of us do what we can to help those out whose lives have been harshly impacted by the oil spill.

– Josh Todd, Buckcherry lead singer/songwriter

When does the Republican Party and Politicians realize America's Middle Class is 'To Big To Fail'?

The Republican politicians bailed out Wall Street, Banks, Investment Firms, American Automakers and Filibuster Unemployment benefits for millions of middle class American's currently out of work.

How about the Democratic Party filibustering any and all War Funding? Unlimited funding for both Wars, War Lords, Heroin Exporting Clans is entirely fine with the Republican politicians and helping the American middle class, Nothing, Obstruction, NO, Filibusters, go figure!

@Smith in Oregon,
I have one for you. How about Obama give us his love affair with the Unions and waive the Jones Act so we can get something done in the gulf.

Smith in Oregon   July 1st, 2010 2:49 am ET

@ James, according to Adm. Thad Allen, Republicans mantra of doing away with the Jones Act is simply a empty issue. International equipment, Oil booms and vessels are onsite and more are coming after the Hurricane leaves the area. Without Unions, Republican led American Corporations would force their employees to entry level wages at most, long and horrific working conditions and likely engage in a great many workplace abuses and unsafe conditions.

What is really cruel today in the US Senate Chambers was Republican Arizona Senator John McCain filibustering against aid for Homeless Veterans with Children. Calling these unsung hero's 'spoiled' is really heartless as they and their children face conditions similar to the grapes of wrath as the recession edges close to a double dip possibility.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is now advocating dumping the American dollar (monetary system) as it's standard and moving to a mixture of international currency. I strongly suspect those very few individuals who received nearly all of the 13 Trillion dollars the rest of the world 'LOST' in their hedge-funds, 401K's, Stock investments are actively competing to crush many European Country's and the IMF themselves. If the IMF dumps the greenback, that would undoubtedly devalue the American dollar solidifying Bush-Cheney as the worst administration in America's entire checkered history.

@ Smith in Oregon

Not only well stated.... .

As you stated above, the IMF has been looking at alternates besides the American dollar. China desires their RMB (Yuan) to be the monetary backing. You are correct, if this happens, our dollar will plummet and we could drop into the "D" word from our current recession.

@ James

Just go to Google and add the following……. “finance?hl=en&q=CURRENCY:USDCNY” You will clearly see exactly what happened when the Cheney/bush administration allowed corporate control.

The old saying “history has a way of repeating itself” If you want to understand deeper, read about Italy’s history from 1900 to 1920 and you will see with even more clarity!

@ Dodie, thank you for your kind comments, it's good to see your posts.

@ James, the world's largest Oil Skimmer is anchored at the Mississippi Delta in the Gulf of Mexico. That huge vessel was originally anchored in Taiwan, the Republican mantra on the Jones Act is empty political rhetoric.

Love this song, this band has a distinct sound that can alter my mood at any given moment. Love the suicide king tat Josh! See you in LA this winter... Maybe LOL

Thank You Josh Todd of Buckcherry for helping the Gulf and coming out with this video. You are one of the first who has tried to help! Thank You! BP needs to be banned from being in business!

Steve in Michigan   July 2nd, 2010 8:23 am ET

It is appalling that our government (claiming to be in charge) when it appears the Coast Guard takes the nod from BP when and where to send in additional resources. Then we have the CG commander allowing his people to shut down boats without enough life vests, etc. etc. He is obviously a lifer – by the book guy. As the oil spill isn't in the books, Thad is out of touch and a huge mistake for managing this situation. These are our shorelines not BP's and the reputation of this company is long well known.

Yes, how are the oil skimmers going in the Gulf of Mexico, I wonder. Is it helping the situation. They should have been there from the start, could they have prevented the oil spreading in the first place, I wonder.

Can BP ever be trusted again and with their record. Hmmm!

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 3rd, 2010 3:59 am ET

This video and song goes right to your heart. What a beautiful gesture this band, Buckcherry is making and they help to restore your faith in humanity. God bless them and many thanks.

Seems like we will never learn. If BP is making too many safety violations, well maybe they should go. Fines don't mean anything to them, because they can afford to pay them. It is like they are giving the fingers.

It was so ironic in the video that.........

"The Deepwater Horizon exploded as BP executives were onboard celebrating BP safety. Also from the video........since the incident the MMS has already approved 2 more BP drilling operations in the Gulf. Both have been exempted from environmental review."

Well doesn't that say it all. What more can one say.

I think it is stated in the Bible that after Jehovah God destroyed the world with the great flood because of evilness and corruption.........that he said he will never destroy the world again by his own hands........but that man will.

Isn't it so coming true. We are witnessing some of it now and this is not the end of it.

........."Woe to the earth, as the Devil has been thrown down with great fury."

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 3rd, 2010 4:05 am ET

This song "Our World" by Buckcherry is so chilling and it gives you goosebumps. He is almost wailing as he is singing it. Seems like crying out for someone to listen and hear and do something.

I would say.........crying out to all our consciences. Is anyone listening? Deaf ears by the sounds of it.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 3rd, 2010 4:06 am ET

Only Jesus can save us now.
