Last seen recording for Look Out! and opening for Green Day in 1995 at enormodomes everywhere, Riverdales are back with a vengeance, sporting a new label, the same ol' snotty attitude, and the requisite Ramones-style buzz on their second album (14 songs in just under 32 minutes, and not one of them a stinker). Beyond the fact that Dan Schafer sings some of the tunes and Ben Weasel uses his real surname, I've never been able to tell the difference between Riverdales and Ben's other (semi-legendary) punk combo, Screeching Weasel. Not that it matters: Both bands deliver catchy, high-energy punk that will have you pogoing around the living room like a idiot. And "Riverdale Stomp" is one of the best anthems Ben has ever had a hand in. --Jim Derogatis

"Wow. I remember going to the cd store in 1997 and seeing two Riverdales cds. "Hmmm" I thought to myself...."they're on Lookout! records and they look pretty cool". Well, for 3 years I didn't think about them until I found out they sounded an ungodly amount like the ramones, one of my favorite bands. So, I checked them out, and sure enough, they rocked. Storm the Streets is a great, solid album that I don't even own, but am obsessed with it already. I do have there first one which rocks as well, but Storm the Streets seems so much more structered and well-produced(judging by the songs i've heard). Ever heard the Huntingtons? The Huntingtons are a huge rip-off of The Riverdales....they sound exactly like them. I really like the Huntingtons, but the Riverdales get more respect because they came first. So fans of Screeching Weasel, Huntingtons, Queers, and of course The Ramones, will enjoy this album"
