"Sorry" is a ballad by American hard rock band Buckcherry. It is their fifth and final single from their third album, 15. It was not originally planned to be a single, but after increasing popularity on mainstream radio, the band made a video and officially released the song.
It was written by lead singer Josh Todd, who has said it is for his wife, and is about feeling sorry for the relationship problems they've had. It is also about the remorse he feels for leaving his wife so much to tour with the band.
The video debuted on MSN on Thanksgiving Day 2007. The video shows a couple who are going through relationship problems, as the song's lyrics address. Scenes of the band playing in a warehouse are shown throughout the video. The band has posted a "Making of the Video" on their website, which can be viewed here.
"Sorry" was highly successful on mainstream radio and in digital sales, reaching the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 at #9 and ranked #44 on the Billboard Year-End Chart of 2008, becoming only the second song of the band's career to chart on the Hot 100, and besting the #59 peak of their first Hot 100 charter "Crazy Bitch". It is also their first Hot 100 top ten hit. It is their first top ten hit on the Pop 100 as well, reaching #8. In addition it has reached #2 on the Adult Top 40, becoming the first Buckcherry single to register on that chart. It is also the second Buckcherry song to enter the Canadian Hot 100 chart, where it debuted at #97 and has climbed to #7, their first top ten single there. It debuted on Mainstream Rock Tracks at #39 and has climbed to #32, and on Modern Rock Tracks at #37, were it has climbed to #31. It is Buckcherry's first song to reach the adult contemporary charts, peaking at #26.
