Click here to listen to excerpts from Buckcherry's Album "Black Butterfly", where 2 songs were inspired by Dave's book "A Child Called "IT".

The song "Child Called It" was inspired by Dave Pelzer's 1995 memoir of horrific child abuse. Todd explained on Buckcherry's record label website: "There were times when I had to put the book down because the abuse of this boy was so bad, but I felt like the book found me... I was compelled to write this song out of inspiration from this guy's incredible journey.

Guitarist Keith Nelson said "We don't usually make music or have songs [about controversial topics] - you know, were a party band, we want to host the party, we don't usually tackle something like child abuse, but it seemed appropriate and the song came out great.:

Another song on the CD "Black Butterfly", the redemptive "Rescue Me", was also inspired by A Child Called "It".
