Ten Four

ten four - Message Understood - Affirmative - OK - Understood - ten four

Usually 10/4 to me is really 5/4, but if the phrase is carried for the ten count, then it would be in 10/4 - not five.....

Here is a few examples from OTO's playlist:

Gluey Porch Treatments (New and Improved) – Melvins - 10/4, 4/4
Kill Switch – The Fallen - 10/4
My Ass is on Fire - Mr. Bungle - 4/4, 10/4

And some examples from Wikipedia -
I'll have to add them to my collection.
