The Dwarves Come Clean is an album released by punk rock band Dwarves on the Epitaph label in February 2000.[1] It was reissued as a picture disc LP in July 2000 on the Cold Front label.[1]

The band offered the song "River City" to George W. Bush's 2000 presidential campaign, feeling that its chorus of "I want to rape the U.S.A." was appropriate.[2]

Allmusic 3/5 stars[3]
Pitchfork Media 6/10 stars[4]

Steve Huey of Allmusic gave the album a 3-star rating, commenting on its departure into "catchy, garagey punk-pop tunes with jackhammer electronic beats", and calling it "one of their most intriguing albums".[3] Matt Le May of Pitchfork Media rated the album at 6.0 out of 10, describing the album as "trite, overused guitar progressions, incompetent pentatonic solos, and seriously fucked-up lyrics", but going on to say that "interesting sounds do occasionally pop up", and crediting the band for fully embracing "the role of fucked-up punk rockers".[4]
