used by Anette Olzon
, lead singer of Finnish symphonic band Nightwish
, to get the audience into
songs. It originally started out as simply "HEY!" but it soon
her iconic HEP HEPs!
from the HEP HEPs, there
is a HEP HEP Army, which
is joined by simply chanting "HEP! HEP! HEP! HEP!" during an appropriate time in a Nightwish
"Ok, HEP! HEP! HEP! HEP!"
"And one more
time, come on and HEP! HEP!"
"I went to a Nightwish concert
last night: I joined the HEP HEP Army!"
"I love Anette's HEP HEPs: they
really get the audience going!"
