This time of the year, the line comes up as much as “Happy Holidays,” is “It’s just an honor to be nominated.” But Bukcherry frontman Josh Todd, whose band has been nominated for a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance for the hit single ‘Crazy Bitch,’ isn’t afraid to admit his band wants more.

“We were nominated in this same category for our first record, and we lost to Metallica,” he says of the Grammy nod. “We can go there and it’s going to be really good press and all that, but now I really want to win.” And that’s not all Todd wants. “I want a Grammy, gold records, I want a platinum record,” he says. “These are all the milestones in this business and I want all that.”

Todd and his bandmates are more than willing to put in the work to get it all. After touring for 13 months and playing, by his count, 155 shows thus far, the band will release a third single, ‘Everything,’ after the new year, and launch another round of dates with Three Days Grace stateside before heading to Europe with Papa Roach.

Because of all that hard work, Buckcherry have accomplished several goals they set out to achieve. So what’s next? Says Todd, “We want to be enormous, we want to be an arena rock band and have a huge catalogue of music and be a force to be reckoned with.”
