Ride are a {{shoegazing}} band from Oxford, England. The band was active from 1988 to 1996. They briefly reunited in 2001. They reunited in 2014 for a 2015 tour in Europe and North America, and are still going today. They were part of the wave of popular shoegazing bands that arrived in the wake of Music/MyBloodyValentine, such as Music/{{Slowdive}} and Music/{{Lush}} While not having My Bloody Valentine's monstrously imposing sound, Slowdive's DreamPop tendencies, or Lush's spaceyness, they distinguished themselves mainly through a more aggressive, faster-paced sound that drew from classic rock and PunkRock, and their all-male lineup (My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and Lush had at least one female member).

Their first two albums ''Nowhere'' and ''Going Blank Again'' have been enshrined in the canon of essential shoegazing albums, with the former sometimes being considered the genre's second best effort after ''Music/{{Loveless}}'', and the latter toning down the shoegaze tendencies in favour of influences drawn from {{Grunge}} (the bandmembers admitted to being inspired by Music/{{Nirvana}}'s ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' while recording), PowerPop and classic rock, giving it a sort of proto-{{Britpop}} sound. Once shoegaze collapsed, the band attempted to stay relevant by reinventing itself as a full-on {{Britpop}} act with ''Carnival of Light'', which gained them some positive notice but no chart success, and increasing tension between songwriters Bell and Gardener led the band to break up during the recording of their swan song ''Tarantula''.

!!Ride showcases the following tropes:
* CoverVersion - ''Carnival of Light'' has a cover of "How Does It Feel to Feel?" by The Creation.
* EpicRocking - Several of their songs exceed 6 minutes, "Leave Them All Behind" exceeds 8 minutes, "Grasshopper" is almost 11 minutes, and "Performance" (from ''Coming Up for Air'') is over half an hour of {{improv}}isation.
