I take it back, maybe.  I NEXISED both terms:

partycrasher 8 articles [but, party crasher 3,000+]

gatecrasher 900+ articles.

Neither appear in the Brown Count or in Carroll's Word Frequency Book.

Although I steadfastly resist plain old-fashioned Googling:

partycrasher 3,660,000 [but, party crasher 491,000]

gatecrasher 430,000

Can say whatever one wishes?
