There are songs you like to sing along to and then there are songs you have to sing along to. For example, when half of the band is screaming the lyrics at the same time, there's a good chance you will want to join in. That's what makes gang vocals so irresistible: they make you feel like a part of the song.
Just one thing before you press play: Be prepared to lose your voice.
The Maine – “Another Night On Mars”
From “We’ll All Be…” on Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop to “Another Night On Mars” on American Candy, one thing’s for sure: The Maine do a good job with sing-along album closers. We’re here for it because, really, is there anything better than having your friends singing along to a song about a night out with them?
Brand New – “Soco Amaretto Lime”
Your Favorite Weapon turned 16, and we are still crying over its closing track, “Soco Amaretto Lime.” Only Brand New could make a song about being young and in love sound that sad.
SWMRS – “Palm Trees”
The California punks manage to sound as catchy as ever while criticizing Hollywood and celebrity culture. If you say you don't scream “to the top” with guitarrists Cole and Max Becker, you're probably lying.
Paramore – “That’s What You Get”
Who can resist this song from the band's 2007 record Riot!? Not Taylor Swift, who even invited Hayley to sing “That's What You Get” with her during the Speak Now tour.
Four Year Strong – “Go Down In History”
Chosing just one Four Year Strong song for this list wasn't an easy task. The band are so big on gang vocals, you can easily lose your voice trying to keep up with vocalists Dan and Alan.
Transit – “Young New England”
Honestly, this song must have been made for a whole crowd to sing to, over and over agian. You know, Boston never drinks—or sings—alone.
A Day To Remember – “The Downfall Of Us All
Don't forget you also need to clap during this one.
