"Stay the Ride Alive" is the thirty-seventh single released by Japanese musical artist Gackt on January 1, 2010. The song was originally titled "Stay the Decade Alive",[1] before being renamed "Stay the Ride Alive" in late November.

Summary[edit]

Like "Journey through the Decade" and "The Next Decade", Gackt is recording this song for the Kamen Rider Decade television series. It is used as the theme song for the Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010 films.[2]

In addition to the CD release, a version including a DVD of the music video was also released, as well as the "special memorial single" version which is a Digipak with a special cover, a third disc, and a booklet describing Gackt's collaboration with the Kamen Rider Decade production.[3]

The music video for the single features Kamen Rider Decade's Masahiro Inoue, who plays the title character of the series, and Kamen Rider Double.[4][5]

The theme "Stay the Ride Alive" is that of "Eternity" (永遠?, Eien).[1]
