Go K.K. Rider!
"Go K.K. Rider" (stylized as "Go K.K. Rider!" prior to New Leaf) is a K.K. Slider song that appears throughout the entire Animal Crossing series. It is a fast-paced, action-type melody which resembles and, based on its title and the album art, is directly inspired by the various theme songs of Kamen Rider, a superhero television franchise originating in the 1970s which is very famous and significant in Japan.
The album cover for "Go K.K. Rider" features K.K. Slider wearing a red scarf and riding a motorcycle. He is depicted against an orange and yellow background, riding away from a white explosion. A red logo in the upper-left corner is somewhat illegible in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and is based on a highly-stylized version of Japanese katakana, but it is legible in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and reads in actual katakana "ケケライダー" (Keke Raidā), or "K.K. Rider."
