Darek Antokolski : Isn't it ironic that they did the four chords progression and got a shitton of views

MrSpeedyAce : When he whipped out the kazoo and played MGMT Kids, I lost it! :-)

Infuser : illo juan

powerpc127 : I just realized that the 4 chord song is basically the blues progression for white people.

Juani Benavidez : You know this happend in Australia when EVERYONE recognized "Down Under"

ModdyDhu : I hate that i really like all these songs

The T : Shame they broke up

Marek B. : For those wondering of those four chords- E, B (or H however you write it) C#m, A. Piano is fine but for guitar beginners I recommend using capo 2nd fret and playing D, A, Bm (Hmi), G. You ŕe welcome if someone did it I´m sorry :)

Martin Fryland : The fat one looks like a swolen Matt Damon.

Timefliesbye : When you make a mockery of the entirety of pop music in less than 4 minutes.

corneliusperiscope : Just seen that the guy in the middle recently came out as transgender. Good for her :)

Jace Carsonne : Can we appreciate that note @ 1:49?? That's a tough note to hit and sustain. That guy has some great vocal control.

A Fischer : OH MY GOD. I've watched this 'bout 5 times. I just noticed that they used a laugh track, supplemented with the crowd reaction. Whoever edited this is very talented.

bySuTiL : illo juan

Evan Leo : Ironically this was their hit.

Mr.Chin : My guitar teacher was talking about this today 😂, I just came upon it

Gormless : Didn't know Chris Ray Gun knew how to play the piano

Aubrey Hastings : 0:10 aw they forgot about Lil' Benny😂

Acha Erlangga : that *"Barbie"* just perfect everything

Captain Smek : Hey has anyone noticed that all these songs use the same chords?

Admin Alpha : jaja i like 😂#2018

August Waller : 2018 anyone?

Teletrvpo : LMDshow y el andré me trajeron aqui

Adam : I came all over my wall at 3:23

charlieinthetree : The copyright claim machine just exploded

Falcongamer 50 : I had to watch this in music class

ANTHONATOR Gaming : While yes, many of these songs use this very basic chord progression, it's the individual songs and what they DO with those chords that makes the songs so different. Africa alone is such a simple yet complex song that constantly breaks its chord progression and throws so many accents onto it. The ACTUAL pop songs shown mostly rip just the basic chords, but songs like She Will Be Loved barely fit into the cookie cutter progression, since M5 uses Bm-Am into the chorus's basic C-G-Am-F that dominates so much music. But all the layers thrown on top by the actual BAND and not just studio technicians makes the magic of the song. It's more than ok to write C-G-Am-F but you shouldn't let it dominate your song's purpose or let it be the only progression used in the song, at least not without accents and Csus and whatnot. Tl;dr The basic chord progression can kinda be used for most of these songs, but it's the layers and musical talent that goes behind progressions that can make something tried and true sound so unique and different!

Sparc Mac : POGCHAMP

Andy Now : Toto Afrika for ever

Arno Online : It's ironic that this video has millions of views

Ryan M : That guy in the middle is now a woman.

The_Utahraptor_Hunter : Wait jack black was in a comedy band

Laura Sanchez : And of course this is their only song that went viral hahahaha

Caleb Perry : Close to 40 years? Jordan's only 36 years old

GAMLAB Games : People don't notice that when Jordan says we've been a comedy rock band for over 40 years, that he is only 33

kali art : I got a* for playing this song complimation in music

Darin Domba : Illo to wapo aabe?

Kapootis the Lord of Tax Fraud : The *Axis* of Awesome should shave their hair.

Jason Libby : Ironically the biggest song they made

KissyLipRaptor : The middle guy is like you mixed Jack Black with Matt Damon

ThatOneDaxSter : My music teacher showed this to the class. We were on to modern music, and we started with the basic four-chord pop songs.

Nicolas Bilardi : Fuking love

Heather : it makes sense when you realise that in the last 40 or so years thousands of the 'top 100' songs were written by the same two guys. Max Martin and Dr. Luke.

Kasper Rubin : Am I not pretty enough?

InnocentDoodles : The guy in the middle looks like a mishmash of Jack Black and Meatloaf.

TheHalfBloodPrincess : I'm in a rock band (sometimes we play pop songs) and I always play the same notes on my Bass Guitar
