Good Riddance "Capricorn One"

(Fat) Listening to this collection of non-album tracks, rarities, and demos from the late Good Riddance leaves listeners with one conclusion : this was the most baddass (badassest?) band on Fat. Sure, they were as melodic as their pussy-ish peers, but their "melodic hardcore" seemed to have actual hardcore involved. The fact that some of the singles here were off EPs and split singles on other labels may have something to do with them flattening their Fat friends,  who all must sub,it after realizing that tracks like "21 Guns," "What We Have," and "Overcoming Learned Behaviour (from Fat's greatest release, the million song "Short Music" comp) are badass as hell. Bad Riddance that they broke up.
