* About a year after ''AVeryPotterMusical'' went viral, Creator/TeamStarkid were at the Azkatraz convention. A bunch of them (Darren Criss, Joey Richter, Matt Lang, Brian Holden, and Dylan Saunders, namely) were hanging out in the lobby, playing songs from it for the fans. Cue up [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHIhuHNRDEs "Get Back to Hogwarts"]], Joey telling everyone to sing along, and Darren being all verklempt that people know the lyrics to his songs. The CrowningMomentOfFunny is at 5:09 when the entire crowd yells "BITCH I AIN'T CHO CHANG!".

* Walter Sickert and the Army Of Broken Toys typically divide the audience in half before playing "Off With Her Head", with one side shouting "Off!" and the other "Head!". Also, they've covered Ray Parker Jr's {{Film/Ghostbusters}} theme, which naturally lends itself to this.

*** {{Primus}} famously had a similar problem when they performed "My Name Is Mud" at Woodstock '94 and got pelted with mud.

* RageAgainstTheMachine-"Killing in the Name" ends with the repeated line "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!" which seems tailor made for audience participation.

* [[TheSmiths Morrissey's]] [[FanConvention fan]]-[[IOweYouMyLife base]] could undoubtedly [[WaxingLyrical recite]] every lyric the man has ever wrote, but the uniting torch song appears to be that of ''There Is a Light That Never Goes Out''.

* One of the reasons FaithNoMore caught a luck break having "Epic" as their big hit, not just because the lyrics were so fun to toy with, but because of the interactive potential of the song's infamous breakdown ([[PunctuatedForEmphasis "What?! Is?! ]][[RuleOfThree It?!]]""What the ''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]'' is it?!" "What is it, kiddies?!"). "Be Aggressive" is another favorite in this regard, as there's nothing more CrazyAwesome than hearing a big crowd comprised predominantly of heterosexual males scream "I swallow! I swallow! I swallow! [[FourIsDeath I swallow!]]"

* In his ''Tinselworm'' tour, BillBailey encourages anyone who goes to see TheKillers to sing the equally logical "I've got ham but I'm not a hamster" when prompted by the band to sing "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier".

* DepecheMode's ''Everything counts'' is a classic example. They used to play it at the end of their concerts. The audience would repeat the chorus for minutes on end after the song was over ("The grabbing hands grab all they can / Everything counts in large amounts"). You can listen to a live recording of this on the album 101.

** Not quite the case anymore - he'll still sing the majority of the song, but for the penultimate chorus, he and his band will just stop and let the audience sing it. Since Billy himself is the "Piano Man" in question, hearing an entire stadium-sized audience sing it back at him is pretty heartwarming.

* 60s folk group The Limeliters would entreat the audience to spontaneously create their own verses to "Hey Li-Lee-Li Lee."
-->'''Audience member:''' Why rehearse, put on a show?\\
'''Audience:''' Hey li-lee-li-lee lo.\\
'''Member:''' Kingston Trio, out you go!\\
'''Audience:''' Hey li-lee-li-lee lo.\\
'''Lou Gottlieb:''' (''spoken'') Oh, dreadful partisanship there!
