Did we really need to delete all of those pages. Even if it was just a list of songs, the trope itself provides the context: The song most people think of.
I agree. There was no reason whatsoever to delete all those pages. Honestly, this whole "Zero-Context Examples" business just serves to make everything unnecessarily complicated.
Yeah, like WTF? I'll put this on ATT and ask if we could restore.
Shouldn't animes, video games, visual novels, etc have their own folders?
I second this.
I'm just wondering, why do all these examples need context? What's there to say beyond "This is the most well known song of the franchise"? If we keep saying that over and over, won't that become repetitive after a while?
There seems to be a lot of complaining going on, right?
Do we really need subpages?
Magnussen reverted a bunch of examples LaptopGuy and I fixed. Should we do something?
Message. I can see why it could be a honest mistake.
Can individual band-members have signature songs? Like "Shock Me" for Ace Frehley, "Whiplash" for Jason Newsted, so on and so forth?
Sure. Just list them with double bullet points under the original band's entry.
I disagree with "Art of Life" being X Japan's signature song. While I think many fans can agree "Art of Life" is their best, their signature songs are definitely "Kurenai" and "X".
A lot of these seem to be pulled from nowhere, Maybe it's personal, but I'd argue "In Too Deep" was as much the signature song for Sum 41 as "Fat Lip", same with "Legs" for ZZ Top, All American Rejects have "Swing Swing" and "Move Along", Since Guitar Hero, Pat Benetar has "Hit me with your best shot", Foo Fighters has "Monkey Wrench", LMFAO have "Sexy and I know it". David Bowie and "Space Oddity" seems off too, since a lot of people don't know the song by name - surely, "Ziggy Stardust" is his signature. Fun. and "We are Young" seem unfair as it's their first major single.
Whereas One Direction, Chris Rene, Kirko Bangz, etc. are "fair"?
Is this list supposed to be in alphabetical order?
Cause it's not... unless I'm missing something.
Why the quotation mark overhaul? Is there something wrong with italics? I'm reverting it until there's a bit of explanation.
I'm just wondering when an artist would have too many equally famous songs to qualify for this trope. I agree with The Beatles and Elvis Presley being the top two contenders, but I know some of these entries have multiple examples. Two is probably fine, and three is probably still okay - but what about four? How much would be too much?
Three at the most.
TBH a lot of bands really would have two signature songs.
These are songs, not albums. Therefore, "Cornflake Girl" would be appropriate, not Cornflake Girl. Can someone fix this, or are there too many examples to fix it now?
Fix it; you have at least a 20-minute time limit to do so.

How well does it match the trope?
