  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE.

A music trope for the (usually) one song by an artist that everyone knows. It doesn't matter how people know the song — maybe the song 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.

These songs do tend to be Ear Worms, songs with an Epic Riff and can also be Black Sheep Hits. It's also possible for an artist to have more than one Signature Song. Some of the more rabid members of the artist's fandom community 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 always the artist's best-charting hit. It also doesn't necessarily run in line with their Signature Style.

If they made Guitar Hero or Rock Band, it's probably this song.

To stop people from leaving at gigs after they've heard the song (as what happened a lot to Radiohead with their song "Creep" before they developed a larger fandom), these songs are normally played live either at the end of the main set or during the encore.

Some musicians arguably avert this by having several equally famous hit songs, The Beatles, Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley being the 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, as with most of these, Your Mileage May Vary and certainly some of their songs are more identified with them than others.

Often overlaps with Black Sheep Hit. See also One-Hit Wonder, for an extreme case of this trope. Not to be confused with Leitmotif.

In America, "Highway to Hell" is regarded as Bon Scott's signature song. For Brian Johnson, it's "Thunderstruck" in Australia and "Back in Black" in America.
