When used with the "Redirect category shell" (Rcat shell) template:

Template {{Redirect category shell}} may be used to add one or more rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from a song title to a more general, relevant article such as an artist, album or film. For more information follow the bold category link.
    • There is consensus that the majority of songs do not meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines. Songs should only have an individual article when there is enough material to warrant a detailed article.

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
  • This redirect category (rcat) template populates Category:Redirects from songs and Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Since redirected song titles are already mentioned in album and film articles, they are usually not needed in a printed version unless they are notable enough to have their own articles. In other words, they are usually unprintworthy. See below for the few song redirects that are printworthy.
  • Add this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Redr|from song}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from song}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any mainspace redirect from a song title to an artist, an album, a film or other more general, relevant article.
  • By default, this template places redirects in the Unprintworthy redirects category. To tag and categorize a redirect as printworthy use the unnamed parameter in the following manner:
{{Redr|from song|p1=printworthy}}
or if applied individually:
{{R from song|printworthy}}
That will subdue the unprintworthy category and place the redirect in Category:Printworthy redirects.
