Crowd Chant is one of Joe Satriani’s highlight tracks from his long career. Even with many instantly hummable & melodic tunes to his credit, this song stands out as a crowd pleaser, with the maximum audience participation possible for an instrumental track. Satch originally wanted to name the song after noises that would come from the deck of the USS Enterprise but due to legal issues had to settle for a chanting & humming from a crowd of 50 people (singer & musicians themselves) who tried to make similar sounds with their mouth that Satriani makes on his guitar. It’s a wonderful song!
