"Ride" was the second official single from The Vines' second album, Winning Days. Although it wasn't a big chart success, "Ride" is one of the band's best known songs because it was featured in a number of advertisements, including commercials for Apple's iPod, Nissan, American Chopper, NASCAR Hot Pass, WKCF, The WB, and Split Second: Velocity. Written by Craig Nicholls.

This song was also featured on an episode of America's Funniest Home Videos in 2006 during a montage of motorcycle accidents and in the "Best Movie" montage at the 2004 MTV Movie Awards for nominee Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. "Ride" along with "Get Free" were featured in the documentary Warren Miller's Impact.
