Meeting the Collective Anthem is a Intensity 5 Unnatural check. It may or may not appear human but will speak any human language fluently.
What You Hear
You summon him/her/it by spending three Minor charges while you're singing (or playing an instrument to the tune of) your favourite song backwards. If the being manages to hear you [roll the CA's Hear My Name skill], it'll mysteriously arrive and join in somehow (by singing, playing an instrument or cheering in the crowd). but only if it likes the sound, otherwise it'll just walk out at first oppertunity.
That guy...girl...thing apparently managed to convince Kurt Cobain to kill himself. Why, I can't imagine. Maybe it demands sacrifice for the service of keeping music alive in our world.
Jimi Hendrix and The Collective Anthem were best buddies back in the day. The tragic death of the famous musician inspired the CA to get others to clean up their acts and quit drinking, smoking, shooting up and stuff. Just say no, kids.

I liekeit, I realy do its a quirky weird thing that youve left ambiguouse enough to have most any motivaion the GM sees fit for it to have.
Perhaps "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" as a Conceal skill?

I'm just reading through this... although I'd never give it a solid form, a massive, nigh-immortal imbodiment of music seems like a great medaphysical powerhouse...
