** Though, when he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdvqTNSU-Gg returned from injury]] in the middle of 2003, he expressed how much he'd ''missed'' the accompanying chants as part of his in-ring promo. He even went as far as gleefully ''leading'' them!

** Especially recently, popular wrestlers who have instrumental entrance themes will have the melodies of said theme either fully vocalised or accompanied by the crowd en masse. Notably, Sami Zayn's ''"Worlds Apart"''[[note]]Pretty much everything! The vocalised intro, the '''"LET'S GO!!"''' and the entire trumpet melody.[[/note]], Finn Bálor's ''"Catch Your Breath"''[[note]]A single loud cheer in time to the [[ScareChord scare chords]]. Especially when Finn has adopted his "Demon King" persona, where he will rise up to his feet and spread his arms out in time to them as he comes down the ramp.[[/note]] and Shinsuke Nakamura's ''"Rising Sun"''[[note]]The main violin melody, especially after Lee England Jr. performed it live to accompany his entrance at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn[[/note]]

With that in mind, it would likely be a crime if Bobby Roode's ''"Glorious Domination"''[[note]]'''GLORIOUS!!!''' - The song was pretty much designed from the ground up to be akin to an arena rock anthem, even going as far as to rope in numerous people to sing the lyrics at the top of their lungs to form the vocal choir.[[/note]] wasn't added to the list, ''especially'' given his recent entrances at NXT Takeover events.

* Most British Football clubs have their own club anthem, some of them quite affecting; hearing 40,000 Liverpool fans spontaneously singing "You'll never walk alone", for instance, is quite moving.
** It is certainly rather more moving than most football chants/taunts, with a few of the more notable ones listed here, aptly demonstrating the average British football fan's warped and occasionally whimsical sense of humour.
*** "Who ate all the pies? Who ate all the pies? You fat bastard, you fat bastard, you ate all the pies!" (Traditionally directed at heftier players, a notable example being Sheffield United's goalkeeper Paddy Kenny)

*** ""He's fat, he's round, he's sold your fucking ground, Al Fayed, Al Fayed..." (Aimed at Fulham fans by just about everyone, in reference to former Fulham owner Mohamed Al-Fayed)



*** More amicably, when Liverpool face Borussia Dortmund, who have also adopted ''You'll Never Walk Alone,'' with both fans happily singing it in unison. It probably helps that a) Dortmund fans make no bones about having adopted it from Liverpool [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff (as did about half the Bundesliga, for whatever reason)]], b) both teams and sets of fans are very alike in philosophy, with similarly atmospheric stadiums and legendary home stands (Liverpool's Kop End and Dortmund's 'Yellow Wall'), resulting in massive amounts of mutual respect, c) more recently, sharing a universally beloved manager, Jurgen Klopp, who joined Liverpool (and quickly established himself as a fan favourite) after leaving Dortmund, who he led to two league titles and a Champions League final, where he is very fondly remembered.
* In November 2015, France were scheduled to play a friendly match against their oldest and bitterest rivals, England, at England's Wembley Stadium. Three days before the match, the Bataclan Attacks took place, killing 129 people, with three suicide bombers blowing themselves up outside the Parc des Princes while France and Germany were playing, and cousin of one the France players, Lassana Diarra, was killed. The match went ahead and the French fans and team were greeted with a Wembley lit up in the colours of the French flag, the French national motto of 'Liberté, égalité, fraternité' emblazoned on the side, floral tributes laid by both managers, the head of the FA and Prince William, the traditional giant St. George's Flag at the home end replaced by a French tricolore, an impeccably observed minute's silence and, at the end of that, all 71,000 fans, English and French alike, joining in a thunderous rendition of 'La Marseillaise', the French national anthem (and appropriately, a stirring call to arms).

When the teams played each other in the second leg of the 2016 Europa League Quarter-Final - which was, apart from anything else, an undisputed classic, ending 4-3 Liverpool after coming back from 3-1 with half an hour to go - at Anfield, it was the day before the 27th Anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster, which killed 96 fans. The resultant rendition of ''You'll Never Walk Alone'' was so moving that FIFA picked it as one of its three moments that year for its inaugural Fan Award.

** British classics (adopted by the US) include the ever popular "The Referee's a Wanker", which is sometimes rewritten as "The Referee's a [[CountryMatters Cunt]]." More specific ones "The Referee's Got Six Toes" (with interchangeable references to local towns known for inbreeding), "Who's the Fenian in Black?" (sung at referees, who wear black, that are perceived to be biased against Rangers in favour of Celtic, in an extension of the sectarian conflicts in Northern Ireland - Rangers being seen as the Protestant team, Celtic as the Catholic team) which is sometimes altered to the more generally understood "Who's the Bastard in Black?", "The Referee's Got BSE" (BSE being short for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, better known as 'Mad Cow Disease', which afflicted Britain from the mid 80's to the late 90's) and "You're Not Fit To Referee" (meant in both senses of the word when aimed by Arsenal fans at Mark Clattenburg when he went down with cramp in 2006).
*** And one, aimed by ''the entire stadium'', at unfortunate referee Graham Poll, "World Cup - and you fucked it up! World Cup - and you fucked it up!"
