* This is one of the defining features of a TaylorSwift concert. No matter what song is being sung, there will be a ''thunderous'' sing-along from the crowd that sometimes threatens to drown out the not-especially-powerfully-voiced Taylor. Even her opening acts can find this happening to them if a song of theirs is familiar enough. There are a ''lot'' of sore throats and chests and parched mouths by the end of the night.

Added DiffLines:

**It can somehow be a UpToEleven by the fact the crowd's lyrics aren't said by Till and that that the crowd isn't asked to answer during the show, so you only know that you are supposed to answer, when you are supposed to answer and what you are supposed to answer.

* John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats is famous for haranguing a notoriously shy indie rock crowd into singing along with a number of closing numbers, including the Ace of Bass song The Sign. Best Quote: "Time was when I had to harangue people to sing that one and I spent the entirety of the time between the first chorus and the second verse singling out the people who hadn't sung. I can't even see the people who hadn't sung this time, but I know you're there, cause I couldn't fucking hear you. I need to hear you. I will come out there! I have witnesses that will tell you that I will come out there and make you extraordinarily uncomfortable, standing in front of you with my guitar where you'll go 'damn, I'd like to beat a hasty retreat to the exit but I just, there's something about a guy talking right to you that you can't just turn around and walk away.' So, what I wish you'd do is sing and save us both the embarrassment and the pain and the years of the therapy!"

*** Thousands upon thousands of people in a London stadium sang along with the choruses -- no bouncing ball required -- when Eric Idle performed this song as part of the 2012 UsefulNotes/OlympicGames's closing ceremony. Who knows how many people watching it on TV or online joined in?

* Metal band Music/Ghost incorporates a lot of vocal parts sung by a church choir into their songs. The audience is often requested to sing these parts during live shows.
* Since KidRock's friend Joe C. died, his brief parts in the songs have become Audience Participation moments.

* At one of the Live 8 concerts, Will Smith turned the theme to ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' into this -- granted, he was performing IN Philly. But reportedly, all he said was, "okay, let's see how many of you remember this one -- 'iiiiiiiiin WEST Philadelphia, born and raised'....." and then just stood, grinning, as 20,000 people finished the entire rest of the song for him.

* KTTunstall tries to prevent this, after the audience worked out how her [[IAmTheBand loop pedal]] worked and realised that if they shouted an obscenity loud enough at the right moment, it'd be repeated through the whole song.

* "Der Tanz der Vampire" from [[TanzDerVampire the show of the same name]] was not written to be like this, but its relatively rock concert atmosphere compared to the rest of the show has given it this kind of status. The audience participation probably began with the "We Will Rock You"-esque chant at the end, but it spread to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW45rBYNdWU the whole song. Check it out!]]

* Music/KoRn's [[Music/KoRn KoRn's]] "Y'all Want A Single" live with the audience screaming back "Fuck that, FUCK that!" or "FUCK THAT SHIT!" (depending on which half of the song it is) in reply to Davis' "Y'all want a single say..."...[[ClusterFBomb Mass Cluster F Bomb]].Bomb]].
** While they don't have very many examples, "ADIDAS" has two. Audiences often shout back "FUCK!" in response to the first "I don't know your fuckin' name..." in each verse to have it match the second and, after the bridge, Davis often goads them into singing one of the alternate "All day I dream about..."s before screaming "FUCKIIING!" back in reply.

* A live recording of Music/{{Foreigner}}'s "Hot Blooded" from the compilation album '"Records'' includes the audience being invited to shout the words "Hot blooded!" at the appropriate time, with the invocation: "Now listen up! You gotta be louder than we are! We got the amps; you got the numbers! There's strength in numbers!"

* Hatebreed's dedicated fanbase does this quite a bit, especially on the song "I Will Be Heard," which this troper feels was built around audience participation. Look up the performance of this song on their ''Live Dominance'' DVD if you're curious.

* Music/{{Slade}} had "Get Down and Get With It", "Cum On Feel The Noize" and many others. They even recorded a version of "Okey Cokey". One particularly heartwarming moment of audience participation came at their [[CareerResurrection Career Resurrecting]] gig at the 1980 Reading Festival, when the crowd started shouting for "Merry Xmas Everybody" - in August. Noddy Holder told the crowd "You want it? ''You'' sing it!"... and the crowd did. The recording of the crowd singing was used as the intro to Slade's Christmas EP that year.
