T-Ride was the debut album of the California-based heavy metal band of the same name. Noted for its wildly complex instrument and vocal arrangements, it featured lead singer Dan Arlie's multi-octave vocal styles and Van Halen-influenced guitar playing by Jeff Tyson. Songs from the album were used in various motion pictures and television shows including ("Luxury Cruiser") in the soundtrack of 1992's "Encino Man", "Zombies from Hell" in the movie "Captain Ron" and "(Bone Down)" in an episode of "Baywatch", "Forbidden Paradise-part 2"; the band did a small club tour during the summer. Drummer/producer Eric Valentine went on to become a multi-platinum selling producer of acts including: Smash Mouth, Queens of the Stone Age, Third Eye Blind, Lostprophets, Good Charlotte, Nickel Creek, John Fogerty and more.

"You and Your Friend" was covered by Snake River Conspiracy in 2000 for their debut album Sonic Jihad, which Eric Valentine co-produced.
