"Crazy Bitch" is the sixth single by Los Angeles hard rock band Buckcherry, and first from their third album, 15, and first to hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, debuting at #99 on May 6, 2006 and peaking at #59. This song was inspired by Paris Hilton's use of a sex tape to rocket herself to stardom[1] and the band's own past with those they deemed "crazy bitches" and It received a nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 49th annual Grammy Awards.[2]

It has been covered by the Phil Lewis version of L.A. Guns. It is frequently played at the World Famous Penny Gardens in Northeast Philadelphia, PA.

Music videos

The original music video was filmed at the Key Club in Los Angeles, which was made to look like a strip club. An open casting call (documented in a video on the band's site called "Behind the Bitch") was held, recruiting dancers and strippers for the low-budget video, which was directed by Ulf Buddensieck. The video exists in two versions: one X-rated, and the other a "clean" version that has been aired on Fuse TV. The "clean" version, however, was not approved by MTV, who demanded more than 80 cuts, according to the July 13, 2006 issue of Rolling Stone.

In October 2006, a new concept video was created for "Crazy Bitch" and the band's then-single "Next 2 You".

Controversy

On September 11, 2006, a lawsuit was filed that alleges that a minor was given alcohol to drink and filmed exposing her breasts, kissing another female and writhing against a pole while Buckcherry performed the song at the video shoot.[3] According to the lawsuit, the music video was posted on the band's website and distributed widely online, as was a "behind the scenes" program that referred to the girl's first name,[3] featured more nudity and had band members saying, "It's like watching seven hours of porn."[4][5] Skip Miller of law firm Miller Barondess said, "We had a guy at the door checking IDs, and to get in, this girl had to show a fake identification showing she was over 18. There were signs telling minors to stay out. This woman filled out a release form with false information. And once it was determined this woman was underage, the video was removed."[4] However, the lawsuit alleges that the minor was not asked for identification.[5] Allen Kovac, Buckcherry's manager, said, "There was every opportunity for her not to be in that video. For whatever reason, the girl subverted those efforts, and now her mom is trying to blame everyone but her. This woman is now looking at them as a profit opportunity."[3] A representative of Warner Music Group said it had no role in the video's original production,[5] but that when the music company was contacted by the girl's mother, it immediately re-edited the video to exclude her[6] and removed the original from circulation,[5][6] hiring an outside group to strip it from websites that had posted it illegally.[6]
