Good Riddance

"Good Riddance" (or "GR") is a punk rock band hailing from Santa Cruz, California. They formed in 1986 and are still going strong. This Santa Cruz, California quartet exploded onto the world punk scene with their 1995 Fat Wreck Chords debut “For God and Country”. They play fast and explosive punk and hardcore music that is heavily influenced by the early American hardcore scene. The lyrical themes vary from political protests and analyses of the American society, to personal struggles and alienation. On occasion, the band has also been known to write slower, sometimes romantic songs.

Every member of the band is either vegan or vegetarian. Two members, Rankin and Pabitch, were previously in State of Grace.
