The Phenomenon of Craving is an EP by the Santa Cruz, California-based hardcore punk band Good Riddance, released May 23, 2000 through Fat Wreck Chords. Their drummer Sean Sellers had left the band in early 1999, so Dave Raun of Lagwagon drummed on the EP and on several tours with the band.[1] A full-time replacement would be found in Kid Dynamite's Dave Wagenschutz, who joined the band for their fifth album Symptoms of a Leveling Spirit the following year.[1]

Reception[edit]

Mark Cyst of The Big Takeover gave the EP two and a half stars out of five, stating that "Good Riddance don't do much more than show that they are still angry, and that they still play hardcore ... I've heard much better material on the band's earlier efforts."[2]
