It's for Your Own Good is the second EP by Australian rock band, The Living End. The EP was recorded in June 1996 at Birdland Studio, Melbourne; the lead track, "From Here on In", provided the name of the band's singles collection, released in 2004. The original cover art featured incorrect formatting of the word "It's" as "I'ts"; this was rectified on later re-releases. The EP features a cover of The Cure's "10:15 Saturday Night".
