* "[[{{Music/Queen}} Bohemian Rhapsody]]". If the beginning is too slow for some people, just wait. When it gets to "I see a little silhouette of a man," everyone in the nearest vicinity will join in. This has been proven [[WaynesWorld in the car]], on camping trips, and while listening to the radio both around the house and while cleaning up a theater.

* Two songs from ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls'' count: "Luck Be A Lady" first has Sky Masterson singing about how badly he needs to win this round of craps, and then all the gamblers around him join in apprehensively singing at him to shut up and roll the dice. "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat" then features a prayer meeting full of missionaries and the aforemention
* "My Shot" from ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' starts off as a solo IWantSong from the titular character before his friends join in, abd then all of colonial New York, showing the spread of Revolutionary fervor that Hamilton spearheaded.ed gamblers singing about the dream that Nicely-Nicely had last night (which is often implied to have been made up on the spot).

** In a sense, almost ''every'' song in
the dream show is a crowd song in one way or another, as the show heavily uses a Greek-style chorus that Nicely-Nicely had last night (which is often implied to have been made up participates in every song except for King George III's (and they do join in at the end of "You'll Be Back"). Depending on the spot).song, the chorus has different purposes - in "Alexander Hamilton", they join the main cast (except Hamilton) as omniscient narrators, while in the above "My Shot", they represent real people, and in songs like "Hurricane", "Wait For It", or the end of "Non-Stop", they simply echo other people's words and aren't meant to represent actual people present. Therefore, the "true" crowd songs, so to speak, are "My Shot", "The Schuyler Sisters", "Farmer Refuted" [[note]]For the Revolution![[/note]], "Right Hand Man", "Yorktown", "Non-Stop", "The Reynolds Pamphlet", and "The Election of 1800".



** "At the End of the Day", "Lovely Ladies", "Master of the House", "Look Down - Reprise", and "One Day More" also apply.



* Like [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the movie]] it was based on, the King of Swamp Castle in ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'' is constantly trying to put a stop to these kind of songs, or any kind of singing whatsoever. He ultimately fails of course.

* Like [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the movie]] it was based on, the King of Swamp Castle in ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'' is constantly trying to put a stop to these kind of songs, or any kind of singing whatsoever. He ultimately fails of course. Actual crowd songs from the show include "Finland", "Knights of the Round Table", "You Won't Succeed on Broadway", and "Act II Finale".


Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone" has several, just like the musicals of old that it parodies. However, after the opening number and first Crowd Song "Fancy Dress", it's lampshaded almost every time it happens again:
** After "Show-Off", a large spectacle about how Janet ''doesn't'' want to show off anymore, Kitty mentions she's surprised Janet didn't do an encore. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Janet complies]].
** After "Toledo Surprise", Janet wonders aloud why they're all dancing if their dreams have been ruined by what transpired in the song.
** The Act II Opener, "Message from a Nightengale", is a Crowd Song from an ''entirely different musical'' that the Man in the Chair put on by accident.
** The ''true'' Act II Opener, "Bride's Lament", is a Crowd Song in which only one person is real - every other cast member on stage is a part of Janet's mental breakdown.
** The Finale of the Show, "As We Stumble Along (Reprise)" plays it fairly straight, but like the above example, only one person - the Man in the Chair - is "real", and the rest is just the cast of the show coming to life in his mind.

** In the episode where Chris joins the Peace Corps he leads the tribe in a rendition of ''Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go'' which according to the tribe's traditions means that [[AccidentalMarriage he must now marry]] TheChiefsDaughter.

** When Liverpool face Scottish club Celtic, who also sing ''You'll Never Walk Alone'', the results are something [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xfgqi-UahE8&feature=related spectacular]]. Another honorable mention to Celtic during their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOyoixsRkQ4 match]] against Barcelona. Just don't try to start a debate on who done it first/does it better.
*** 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. 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.
