Hoedown is a game in which all four performers sing a hoedown about an audience-provided subject, with each performing four-line stanzas (unrelated to each other). The same basic music is always used, and the stanzas typically follow the same AABB rhyme scheme with the fourth line as a punchline. The last line of the last stanza is repeated to end the song.

As a musical game that involves all four performers (regardless of their singing skills), a running gag is the performers' (most notably Ryan Stiles') legitimate hatred of the game, which they express by blatantly mocking the host, the hoedown itself, and occasionally the other performers. When played, "Hoedown" (or its predecessors in the UK) is usually the last game before the closing credits (often the "prize" game in the US during the ABC run from seasons 1-8). Colin Mochrie admitted in various interviews later on that this wasn't his favorite out of all of the games due to it often becoming nonsensical.
