Ballads from the Revolution is the third album by the Santa Cruz, California-based hardcore punk band Good Riddance, released February 10, 1998 through Fat Wreck Chords.


Andy Hinds of Allmusic rated Ballads from the Revolution four and a half stars out of five, remarking that Good Riddance "play harder, louder and faster — the tunes detonate, one after another, like a volley of mortar fire. Still, the band know how to incorporate pure pop sweetness into their relentless assault without ever coming close to cheesiness".[1]
