The Street Dogs
State of Grace

Hellcat Records
3 out of 5 stars

This is Beantown-style punk rock with a streetwise intelligent edge. The Street Dogs singer Mike McColgan’s experience as a Gulf War vet and a Boston firefighter make for mean, lean, relevant lyrics and fist-pumping anthems.


Volcom Entertainment
4 out of 5 stars

Not since Suicidal Tendencies injected the world of Venice, CA skate-punk into their hardcore has a band used a cultural style so well. With Latin influences abounding, this Bay Area outfit — produced by Helmet’s Page Hamilton – is a lethal force.

Billy Joel
The Stranger – 30th Anniversary

Sony Legacy
4 out of 5 stars
