"Here’s another thing you don’t need me to tell you: there’s a cracking atmosphere in Anfield ahead of the Merseyside derby. You Never Walk Alone gets a belt out, while the Everton end sing in defiance. "
[From live MBM football report.]

Is "belt out" or "belt" a noun in the passage above?

    To 'belt out' a song, is to sing it loudly and lustily, (and, in this case, passionately). Yes, here the writer/speaker/commentator has made it into a noun.
