Good Riddance

Good Riddance is a straight-edge hardcore punk band from Santa Cruz, CA. Led by vocalist Russ Rankin, the band's longtime lineup included guitarist Luke Pabich, bassist Chuck Platt, and drummer Sean "SC" Sellers. Although it was formed in 1986 by ex-Fury 66 member Rankin as a voice for his political frustrations and protests, the band did not gel until Pabich's arrival. In 1990, they released their first 7", Gidget, on Little Deputy Records.

Good Riddance was eventually discovered by NOFX bassist and Fat Wreck Chords owner Fat Mike. After recruiting Platt, the band produced the powerful For God and Country, which was released in 1995. Their place as a top seller in Fat Wreck's lineup established, the band went on to produce the remarkable 1996 release A Comprehensive Guide to Moderne Rebellion. Playing off of their strong antiwar and straight-edge attitudes, Good Riddance cultivated a large following in the punk community. During the summer of 1996 and most of 1997, Good Riddance toured the U.S. and much of Europe with such headliners as Sick of It All, No Use for a Name, and Propagandhi.

Confident with the stability of their career, Good Riddance went back to the studios to record the 1998 album Ballads from the Revolution. Seeing the band's music as a way to reach people with his message, Rankin packaged the CD with an eloquent essay. Although certainly not the first band to do such a thing, Good Riddance stepped outside of the new-school punk format and hearkened back to the days of early protest punk. In early 1999, the band released their fourth album, Operation Phoenix; however, Sellers departed late that year.

Good Riddance continued to tour with other Fat Wreck Chords artists, initially recruiting Lagwagon's Dave Raun as a temporary fill-in for Sellers. Raun played on the mid-2000 EP The Phenomenon of Craving before former Kid Dynamite drummer Dave Wagenschutz officially joined the band. The following year, the band released Symptoms of a Leveling Spirit. A split disc with Kill Your Idols preceded an all covers album, Cover Ups, featuring versions of classics from Black Flag and the Psychedelic Furs.

Good Riddance returned to all-original material in 2003 with the furious social, political, and personal hardcore rants of Bound by Ties of Blood and Affection. A two-week European tour was completed in early 2006 before the band's seventh full-length, My Republic, appeared that summer, featuring Sellers back behind the Good Riddance drum kit. As members of the band became increasingly busy with outside commitments and family, it became harder for them to tour with the same frequency as they (and their fans) were used to. This fact coupled with the changing musical climate away from their brand of hardcore, causing Good Riddance to ultimately decide to call it a day in 2007, so that they could "walk away from this with a degree of grace and dignity," instead of just fading away. A trio of California shows over Memorial Day weekend subsequently became the band's last stands. Remain in Memory: The Final Show was released in March 2008. ~ David Cornelius, Rovi

Great band.
P**che familia putos south west detroit
skonjie=hate r
this is some good s**t!
some of their stuff is a little melodic and poppy... but the rest is hardcore punk, and they're most definately not a straight edge band even if you dot know them you can tell from their lyricshere I am again drunk at 3 am , got my second bottle down, got 12-15 pages of my desperation cold...
This is not punk!...and for sure NOT hard core punk! hahahaha!

The Bio needs editing--GR was not a SXE band, only Russ is SXE. I have seen the other guys drinking beers while playing.
Pandora needs to expand their GR discography. . . Where's Ballads? Comprehensiv e ? For God?
1981?? Guess you never heard of Nirvana then? Or Husker Du, Bad Religion, the Damned, the Buzzcocks, Agent orange... even the real Misfits were still together in 1981. Punk did not die. It continues to be ignored by the top record companies (and their big promotion budgets). Fine with me; its always been that way. Check my station for proof. Pogo till you puke!
I like more and more straight edge/non hardcore band everyday even though I do not believe in their lifestyle choices!
Great band. And Peter? They sound like Bush? What the f**k are you talking about? Get the dick out of your ears.
huh, strangely, this is the first time I've ever heard them... thank you, Pandora. have a new band to look into...
Wait, Good Riddance was.... straight edge?
Punk (like most music) died when boybands ruled the world =P

These guys sound like Bush. 100% Pure Awesome. Glycerine!
One word... Awesome. Holy $hit, punk guy! That is the funniest thing I have heard in a looong time. We all know that punk is not dead. we just smell that way.
Of course it did dear, but the grown-ups are talking now. Don't interrupt.
Punk ended in 1981
I would only be able to handle a lot of this on drugs...how ironic? LOL
These guys are hands down one of the best hardcore punk bands ever...I say this alot with bands that really don't matter, but Pandora needs to get their first albums especially A Comprehensiv e Guide to Modern Rebellion, Operation Phoenix and Ballads From the Revolution.. . t h e s e guys helped change the structure of what it meant to be punk and the responsibili t y that came along with a microphone.. .
Great f**king band, shame they broke up.
WARPED 1997... good times
tahoebt
Will Pandora please expand the Good Riddance album selection to include their early work? what the eff...
I can't find an album that wasn't good. These two aren't great, but they're not bad. The first, like, five or so albums are WAY better.
I think for god and country is there best. just my opinion. just sounded more raw and uncut!
rayjay92
i love me an edge punk band!
Damn they need to get the others up here. These two are not the best there is. Symptoms of a Leveling Spirit and Operation: Phoenix are the two best.
gallagha1
