|This article is about a/an song in Himitsu Sentai Gorenger.|
"Susume! Gorenger" (進め!ゴレンジャー Susume! Gorenjā, "Dash! Gorenger") was written by Shotaro Ishinomori as the opening song for Himitsu Sentai Gorenger. The song is interpreted in a heroic male voice, encouraging through the words of the lyrics, seemingly cheered on by what seems to be a child's voice (actually a female singer) and later the voices of a group of children as is typical of children's shows of the time.
