"The Peace!" (ザ☆ピ〜ス!, Za Pīsu!) is the twelfth single of J-pop idol group Morning Musume and was released July 25, 2001. It sold a total of 682,320 copies and reached number one on the Oricon Charts. This song is also a personal favorite of ex-Morning Musume member, Rika Ishikawa, as the monologue spoken by her towards the end of the song became one of her favorite moments of being in Morning Musume.


The single version (later preserved on the Best! Morning Musume 2 anthology) contains a fade-out, suggesting to the listener that the song's multiple false endings continued infinitely. The version heard on the album 4th Ikimashoi! is billed as the "Complete Version" and does not fade out, instead coming to a stop several seconds beyond the single version's fadeout.
