Yes. According to author Jim White, Manchester United fans had "no problem" singing the anthem in the 1970s until it came to be viewed as a "musical symbol of Scouseness" and their rival's ongoing success, at which point they began to parody it.

F--k off, F--k off

With an 'ole in your a--e

And You'll Never Walk Again

Upon hearing this version at the 1977 F.A. Cup Final, match commentator John Motson erroneously announced to television viewers "And indeed it's the Liverpool anthem 'You'll Never Walk Alone' that's being sung, ironically by the Manchester United supporters." By the time of the 1983 F.A. Cup Final, six years later, Man Utd supporters were themselves confused. While thousands of old school fans belted out the mock anthem, a small fresh faced element joined in with Brighton & Hove Albion fans, singing instead "You'll Never Walk Alone", seemingly not appreciating the difference. Later versions took aim at Liverpool's unemployment and economic decline.

A story circulated in 2004 tells of Manchester United fans singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" shortly after the Munich Air Disaster in 1958. This is not taken seriously by sports historians who can find no evidence in support of the claim.
