What does "бухала" mean

"Печень так бухала". It's from a songtext. I understand it has to be some kind of slang. But what does it mean? When I search in Google, I only find owls. That can't be correct, right?

    From what I understand, бухать is a colloquial verb "to get drunk", "to drink excessively".

    бУхать - with the noise of hitting, beating the drum
    бухАть - to drink alcohol

    To drink alcohol it is bad for the liver of the person. This mean that the person was drinking a lot of the alcohol.

    if the sentence you've got is correct -- it means feeling some pain in liver
    maybe during running
