A vocal solo occurs when an artist decides to vocally improvise during a song. They are marked by either intense and sudden crescendos or quick octave fluctuations.

Vocal solos are very difficult to perform because creating a new set of lyrics on the spot is something many artists cannot do. As a result, vocal solos often feature artists singing indiscernible lyrics or repeating a word/phrase.

"I thought the shat had hit the roof until Aretha laid down that vocal solo... Improvising was a good move because that shit was bunk. But it was powerful, man! It brought a tear to my eye."

To finish something off completely so that no question of whether or not you did it remains. If a person says "Bring that shit in", they are implying that a situation, a game, a scenario, a construct, or a competition must come to an end quickly. In the context of a sporting event, the phrase is used primarily in baseball games, although Larry Bird was well known for using it when he coached the Boston Celtics.

The phrase was made popular by the revolutionary, socialist band, Rage Against the Machine in the songs "Take the Power Back" and "Freedom". It was used in the context of inciting rebellion against the current capitalist economic system, although this meaning is not exclusive to the phrase.
{At a baseball game}
Coach: C'mon guys. I know it's the bottom of the ninth and we're down two runs. But you all need to get focused. You all need to get the led out. I don't want to see any pussying out. You run like a bat out of hell from base to base. C'mon! Bring that shit in!

The cousin of a vocal solo. A bonus chorus occurs during a live performance when an artist spontaneously decides to repeat the main chorus or a variation of it. They most often occur during an artist's biggest hit. It can take the form of a vocal solo, although it is not exclusively improvised.
"I had an eargasm while Judas Priest was playing "You Got Another Thing Comin'" but things got even more extreme when they threw in a bonus chorus!"

The point at which a performance has become so bad that one is forced to get up from their seats and leave the auditorium or stadium.
"I was born an Ohio State fan. I live as an Ohio State fan. I will die an Ohio State fan. But the shat hit the roof in the game against Florida when they basketball'ed the touchback."
