River City High is a rock band from Richmond, Virginia. Like many Richmond punk bands, they incorporate other influences into their music, specifically classic rock. They formed out of the bands Fun Size and Inquisition, the latter also including members who would form Strike Anywhere and Ann Beretta.

They released their debut EP in 2000 on Big Wheel Recreation, and quickly signed to Doghouse Records thereafter. For the next three years the group toured the United States, playing over 200 shows a year.[1] They signed a contract with MCA Records but the company folded in 2003 before they could release the material they had recorded for the label.[1] Following some lineup changes, the group returned to Doghouse, and won the 2004 MTV Dew Circuit Breakout contest.[1]
