One wrote: "I’m praying bc like I need rock Taylor in order to live happily."

Theories of a rock era from the 'Wildest Dreams' songstress have long-circulated, with fans initially speculating that the follow-up to '1989' was going to be a pop-rock-infused project called 'Karma'.

As everyone starts to get excited about the new genre change from Taylor, many have been turning to a famous concert moment that boasts the singer's edgier vocals.

One video has gone viral multiple times that shows Swift performing a revamped edition of her mega-hit 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' during her 1989 tour.
