* In keeping with its [[FolkMusic folk]] nature, DonMcLean's "American Pie" designs its final chorus for audience participation by having a "soloist" chorus after the last verse leading into an "everybody sing along" final repeat.

* Every Music/IronMaiden album has at least one "Woah-woah" bit that the audience can sing along to. If you don't get what "woah-woah" means, and I won't blame you, "The Trooper" is a perfect example.
** Iron Maiden fans will sing along to everything, especially in well-known "anthem" songs. This includes not only choruses but verses, riffs, and even solos. Biggest example is probably, though, "Fear of the Dark". The band could pretty much stay silent for the first minute or so and nobody would notice. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoiHX9azZeQ Here, for example.]]

*Music/NineInchNails song "Piggy" frequently has this happen, as lead singer Trent Reznor invites the audience to start singing the song with him, most notibly the phrase "Nothing can stop me now", as it's repeated a lot in the song, and other Nine Inch Nails songs, to the point it has become ArcWords within the band's music.

* Subverted by Music/TomLehrer in his introduction to "[[http://members.aol.com/quentncree/lehrer/irish.htm The Irish Ballad]]":
-->Oh - one more thing. One of the more important aspects of public folk singing is audience participation, and this happens to be a good song for group singing. So if any of you feel like joining in with me on this song, I'd appreciate it if you would leave - ''right now''.

Added DiffLines:

** Performances of their so-called national anthem "Wanted Dead or Alive" from 2001 onwards have the audience take over the vocals in the first verse. And don't forget "Livin' On A Prayer;" try finding someone who doesn't sing along to it the moment Jon Bon Jovi starts the acapella intro.

Satch's riffs (and other assorted tricks) during the "verses" are deliberately structured with gaps of equal length to allow an audience to recite them with their collective voices to the point where it's a flat-out requirement.
