Good Riddance (or GR) was a hardcore punk band from Santa Cruz, California. Led by vocalist Russ Rankin, the band's longtime lineup included guitarist Luke Pabich, bassist Chuck Platt, and drummer Sean "SC" Sellers. Their sound was influenced by the hardcore punk scene and the band was known for their combination of fast punk with catchy melodies. Lyrical themes vary from political protests and critical analyses of American society to personal struggles and alienation.

Pabich and Rankin were formerly members of State of Grace before the release of "Decoy" in 1994. All of the members currently play in side projects: Pabich and Sellers in [http://outlie.net/ Outlie] , Platt in [http://iwantout.com/ I Want Out] , and Rankin in Only Crime.

Every member of the band supported animal rights and was either vegan or vegetarian. The band was also a vocal supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the United States Green Party. [ [http://www.peta2.com/OUTTHERE/o-grid.asp PETA2 // Out There // Good Riddance ] ]
