BUCKCHERRY lead singer Josh Todd might be sad to see 2006 close out. The hard-rocking frontman has had a banner year -- with the birth of a daughter, and a hit song that recently earned the long-running L.A. band a Grammy nomination for best hard rock performance. The group will celebrate with a show at the Key Club on Dec. 29 and a New Year's Eve gig at OCNYE's 2007 "Orange Drop." But here's how the Valley resident spends time off.

Hey! You wanna [expletive] rock?! Take a trip down this L.A.-based quintet's own personal Highway to Hell, a.k.a. the gritty, swaggering "Ridin'." Er, wasn't that AC/DC's road? Well, did you really expect the makers of the 1999 retro-rocking hit "Lit Up" to give us something [expletive] original? Nothing on Buckcherry's [expletive] sophomore collection (in stores Tuesday) approaches the raunchy guilty pleasure of that tune, although the tracks have plenty of raunch.

Prairie escapees You can hear the restlessness in every tortured chord, measured scream and stabbing guitar riff on the Kinison's debut album "What Are You Listening To?" No wonder the three core members of the quintet left their bucolic prairie hometown of Oblong, Ill., (pop. 1,580) 2 1/2 years ago for California. "There was nothing else to do but leave," says vocalist Christopher Lewis, 21. "If I was still at home living with my parents, I'd just be sitting around, getting drunk ...

The KISS Army shows no signs of surrender in 2009. Nearly four decades after the pop-metal quartet first emerged amid fireballs and kabuki makeup, the fans still come. And they bring fresh recruits in the form of teens and toddlers, many in the same black-and-white face paint. In the lobby of the Honda Center in Anaheim on Tuesday, veteran fans watched the parade as they awaited KISS' explosive arrival onstage. "This is huge! KISS is my whole life," declared Robert Edmondson, 43, of Monrovia.

LAWRENCE Muggurud is not quite who you think he is. He's DJ Muggs, all right, arguably the world's greatest hip-hop producer, creator of the unforgettable cinematic beats behind Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill a Man," House of Pain's "Jump Around" and Ice Cube's "Check Yo Self." But behind the hip-hop there's another persona: that of a space rocker.

Pussycat Dolls "Doll Domination" (Geffen) 1/2 It's shaping up to be quite an autumn for American feminism. First, we have Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, about whom you might have read something in the last few weeks. Now the Pussycat Dolls, a burlesque troupe turned top-40 act, have made a collection of electro-pop songs that are the opposite of sex: belligerent come-ons and odes to singledom stripped of pleasure, adventure or anything resembling fun. Both instances capture a particular moment in the woman-as-cultural-cipher debate, but at least Palin's nouveaux-"Fargo" accent doesn't come with a leather corset.

Camp FREDDY has its own radio show, has performed at Rock the Vote and Vanity Fair parties, and is in the midst of making a record. Just don't call the L.A. supergroup a band. "It's a group of friends who get together and invite other friends to play music," guitarist Billy Morrison says. "We just happen to meet up on Saturday night and do a radio show, and we've already met up in the Valley a few times and put some tracks down. It's still a loose thing."

It's just past 1 a.m., and the four dozen shivering souls gathered on the edge of the Hansen Dam in Lake View Terrace are watching a fledgling rock star unravel. The song "For the Movies" has just blared out of the speakers for, oh, the 35th time or so, and the sagging man trying to lip-sync his way through its chorus is Josh Todd, the darkly charismatic singer for the glam-tinged rock band Buckcherry. "I just . . .
