Since 2018, Taylor Swift has released five new albums (not including the re-recorded ones), with The Tortured Poets Department as the most recent member of the family. The fandom has grown significantly with each album drop, which means there are plenty of baby Swifties attending The Eras Tour. To help educate the new members, OG fans are sharing what to bring to the Eras concert, cute concert ‘fit ideas, and all of the fan chants to know.

Fan chants are specific phrases typically shouted out during a live performance, and they exist for almost every single fandom. BTS ARMY has a fan chant that lists the names of each of the members, which is said before a song begins or during dance breaks. Sometimes, a fan chant can just be a popular lyric that fans like to scream-sing extra loud during a concert, like the bridge in “Keep Driving” for Harry Styles fans.

The fan chants for Taylor Swift include a few of those fave lyrics that are emphasized, but also some inside jokes mixed with clapping. Swifties have even added in some new ones for the Midnights era and Swift’s relationship with Travis Kelce that many fans haven’t had the chance to say just yet in a concert. And now that the “Fortnight” singer has added in TTPD to her Eras Tour set, there’s a chant that every Swiftie needs to learn before seeing her again.

To get you ready for the show, here are all of the Taylor Swift fan chants to practice before you head to the stadium this year.

Double Clap In “You Belong With Me”

This is not necessarily a chant, but there is a double clap in “You Belong With Me” that has become a must-do for Swifties. This one you might have to practice at home with your friends, like TikToker @concertcrazedcaroline, to really get the timing down. It happens during the bridge.

Lyrics: “Oh, I remember you driving to my house / In the middle of the night / I'm the one who makes you laugh / When you know you're 'bout to cry”

Fan Chant: *clap clap*

“F*ck The Patriarchy” In “Taylor Swift: All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) (From The Vault)”

If you’d like to partake in scream-singing a fan-favorite lyrics, there is one line in Swift’s 10-minute version of “All Too Well” that is beloved. It’s when she says, “F*ck the patriarchy” — obviously.

Lyrics: “And you were tossing me the car keys...”

Fan Chant: "F*ck the patriarchy!"

“How’d That Make You Feel” In “Taylor Swift: All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) (From The Vault)”

In a 10-minute-long song, of course, there is a second fan chant. This time, during “All Too Well,” you want to ask Swift, “How’d that make you feel,” before she says, “That made me want to die.”

Lyrics: “You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine”

Fan Chant: “How’d that make you feel?”

“1, 2, 3, Let’s Go B*tch” In “Delicate”

One of the most popular fan chants that comes from the Reputation era is during Swift’s song “Delicate.” The inside joke actually originated from Swiftie Emily Valencia, who screamed out “one, two, three, let’s go b*tch” at the beginning of the song during a concert. The video of her screaming really took off, and now, even Swift expects to hear it from her fans.

Lyrics: “This ain't for the best / My reputation's never been worse, so / You must like me for me / We can't make any promises / Now can we, babe? / But you can make me a drink”

Fan Chant: “One, two, three, let’s go b*tch!”

“Take Us To Church” In “Don’t Blame Me”

For many Swifties, going to The Eras Tour feels like a religious experience. That may be why this next fan chant has become so popular with this tour. It happens before the breakdown in “Don’t Blame Me,” right before there’s a heavenly glow of lights on the stage.

Lyrics: “Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me”

Fan Chant: “Take us to church, Taylor!”

“Summon The Demons” In “Willow”

A fan chant that started to pop up because of Swift’s choreography on The Eras Tour is “summon the demons, b*tch.” It happens during Swift’s dance break right after the bridge in “Willow” during her Folklore and Evermore sister set. TikToker @allisonnicholez did it at her show, along with all the other chants.

Lyrics: “But I come back stronger than a '90s trend”

Fan Chant: “Summon the demons, b*tch”

“What Time Is It” In “Style”

Some fan chants are like a call and response, like this one from “Style.” While it’s not as popular as some of the others, it is hilarious. Before Swift starts singing her 1989 hit, just yell out, “What time is it?

Fan Chant: “What time is it?”

Lyrics: “Midnight / You come and pick me up, no headlights”

“Sydney” In “Blank Space”

Back in 2015, on the 1989 World Tour and during “Blank Space,” Swift did something special at the bridge of the song. Before going straight into “boys only want love if it's torture,” she would add some beats on loop along with chanting the name of the city she was in. Since Swift filmed her show in Sydney for the Taylor Swift: The 1989 World Tour Live film, it’s become an inside joke within the fandom to fan chant “Sydney” during any performance of “Blank Space.”

While that inside joke has kind of fizzled out over the years, it was brought back when Swift performed “Blank Space” in Sydney during the Eras Tour. The “Sydney” chant during the bridge was so loud that you could hear it crystal clear outside the stadium. This fan chant will likely continue for the rest of the 2024 Eras Tour shows, and you can either chant “Sydney” or add in your own city’s name.

Lyrics: “Boys only want love if it’s torture.”

Fan Chant: “Sydney!”

“You Forgive, You Forget, But You Never Let It Go” In “Bad Blood”

Swift sings the OG version of “Bad Blood” on The Eras Tour, but Swifties have been providing one of Kendrick Lamar’s lines from the remixed music video version as a fan chant. It’s when Lamar says, “You forgive, you forget, but you never let it go.” Since Swift released the remix with Lamar for 1989 (Taylor’s Version), you know she loves it, too.

Lyrics: “Band-Aids don't fix bullet holes / You say sorry just for show / If you live like that, you live with ghosts”

Fan Chant: “You forgive, you forget, but you never let it go.”

“Hey, Stop” In “Bad Blood”

A recent addition to the Eras Tour fan chant list is from when Swift yelled at a security guard at one of her concerts, while defending a fan. While the entire sound from the night went viral on TikTok, the “hey, stop” is specifically a fan fave and is something some Swifties yell out during “Bad Blood.”

Lyrics: “'Cause baby, now we've got bad blood”

Fan Chant: “Hey, stop!”

The Countdown In “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart”

At Swift’s first show in Paris on May 9, she officially added the Tortured Poets Department era to her tour, after moving around her set list. The final song she performs as part of TTPD is “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart.” On the album, the track features a countdown that some fans have speculated is what Swift hears from her in-ear monitors on stage.

Now, you can really hear it IRL because the countdown has become a new fan chant. All you need to do is shout the “one, two, three, four” after each verse and before the chorus.

Lyrics: “I'm sure I can pass this test” and “‘Cause I can do it with a broken heart.”

Fan Chant: “One, two, three, four!”

“Taylor, You’ll Be Fine” In “Anti-Hero”

This fan chant originates from Bleachers’ remixed version of “Anti-Hero.” In this version, Swift’s bestie and collaborator Jack Antonoff says, “Taylor, you’ll be fine,” in the background. It happens during the second verse, so don’t get ahead of yourself. Just remember it goes after “congressman,” and replaces “tale as old as time.”

Lyrics: “Did you hear my covert narcissism I disguise as altruism / Like some kind of congressman?”

Fan Chant: “Taylor, you’ll be fine.”

“Karma Is The Guy On The Chiefs” In “Karma”

Swift added this last fan chant when she replaced “guy on the screen” with “guy on the Chiefs” while singing “Karma” in Argentina. Kelce attended Swift’s Nov. 11 show in Buenos Aires, and the Midnights singer gave a nod to her boyfriend with the lyrical swap.

The OG line “karma is the guy on the screen” was a reference to Swift’s ex and actor Joe Alwyn, so it only seems fitting she’s switched it up with “guy on the Chiefs” to match her current partner. Swifties are loving so much that they’re now saying it during the concert, too.

Lyrics: “Sweet like justice, karma is a queen / Karma takes all my friends to the summit.”

Fan Chant: “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs.”
