If you play in a band that does covers, it is almost imperative that you all learn the main riff to "Bad Boys" (Theme from COPS) at a low volume. It serves many purposes.

1: It keeps the audience calm while the police do their thing.
2: It provides background and context for the singer to make the announcement that the show is over, and everyone should go home (Or recites the instructions given by the police)
3: It lets "Dave" know that he should zip up his "magic" backpack and disappear out the back before the K9's arrive.
4: It lightens the mood while the police drag out the one drunk troublemaker.

Should have filmed it - so you could have your crowd spillover footage like "where the streets have no name"
