Time Bomb is Buckcherry's second album, the last with the original line-up, and the only to feature guitarist Yogi Lonich. It was produced by John Travis [1] and released on March 27, 2001 by DreamWorks Records.

Release and reception[edit]

The album spawned one single, "Ridin'". The lyrics are sleazier and more sordid than on the band's first album, suggesting considerable rock n' roll excess within the band at the time. The bonus track (untitled on the sleeve, but officially called "Open My Eyes") suggests an end to this due to a successful relationship. The album is currently out of print.
