At the end of the 8th bar is a crash cymbal.
Create New This is a music trope for the usually one song by an artist that everyone knows. It doesn't matter how people know the song — maybe it was all over the radio, maybe it was used in a movie, maybe it was used in a TV show, maybe it was used for an ad that got played over and over and over again — but people know it.
It's also possible for an artist to have more than one Signature Song, especially one for two or more distinct phases of their career. Whatever the case, these songs are very likely to be awesome.

Some of the more rabid members of the artist's fandom may accuse one of not being a true fan for disliking the artist's Signature Song, even if said person may like every other song that the artist has recorded — or, inversely, liking the Signature Song more than what Fanon considers the artist's "real best work".
Sometimes the signature song isn't the artist's biggest hit see Chart Displacement. The song can also be famous due to its inclusion in a certain work.
The songs that are potholed are examples of these. If they made an appearance in Guitar Hero or Rock Bandit's probably this song. If the artist is a composer of Classical Musicthe song is probably a Standard Snippet now.
In earlier times, such as the s and s, it was not uncommon for a band or singer to open their set with their signature song or at least a few bars of it, especially when they appeared on radio. With the advent of television talk shows it also became common for the studio band to play a few bars from the artist's signature song as he or she walked onstage.
Not performing it at all may result in an Iconic Song Request. Some artists or bands will actually avert playing their signature at all. Be it because they consider it an Old Shamea target of Misaimed Fandom or any other reason. Some musicians arguably avert this by having several equally famous hit songs, The BeatlesMichael Jackson and Elvis Presley being three prominent examples.
If they'd left off one of their hits from a show it wouldn't have been such an obvious oversight. That said, certainly some of their songs are more identified with them than others.
A Black Sheep Hit is somewhat more likely to fall victim to this, for obvious reasons. Occasionally, an artist can have a signature song that is eventually usurped by another song although this could be temporary.
It's also possible for an artist to have different signature songs in different countries. Additionally, one could have different signatures songs for different audiences. Though a rare occurrence, it's possible for two different artists to have the same signature song.
Signature songs may be slightly different from region to region, as well. See One-Hit Wonder for an extreme case of this trope. Not to be confused with Leitmotif or Character Signature Songwhich is about signature songs sang by fictional characters.
