Suprav Pokharel : Discount Jack Black can really sing though

kjjmusic : The chords are E, B, C#m, A for the ones who wants to play along ;-)

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

Ido Eini : I know this video points out how stupid mainstream songs are, but I just got at least 5 more songs into my playlist

Infuser : illo juan

Jermbot15 : The guy on the left, he doesn't open his mouth alot... but when he does it's gold.

Hunter Evans : Who’s still listening in 2018 now going to be 2019?

Pontus Nilsson : No one mentions how good this actually is, so well ill do it

SqualidsargeStudios : But those canvas bags were too expensive to make, so it was made with cheaper crap!

The MelonHead : 3:17 when you stepp on lego

Drewtendo : If someone ever says that all hit songs don't sound the same, direct them to this and/or Pachelbel Rant.

Alrota Music : I don't know why, but every time I see 1:49 I have to think about Donkey Kong :D

airattack 88 : ah 240p we meet again

bySuTiL : illo juan

RobMacKendrick : This is probably the most awesome video in the history of YouTube.

Falcongamer 50 : I had to watch this in music class

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.

big dick : 2018 anyone?

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

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

Jackdoes69 HAHAHAgotem : We have Chicken Little, Jack Black and Sheldon Cooper...

Walnut Coffee : Wow, I didn't know Jack Black could play the Kazoo.

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.

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!

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

Phantom_Raptor64 plays PS4 : Wait jack black was in a comedy band

The T : Shame they broke up

Matthew Moore : This might be my favorite video ever

Bertram Hasselager : Tenacious D just found their third member

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

Not very Dank memes : Sounds a lot like FADED by Alan walker

Joe Hashbrowns : Every song I like is apparently a 4 chord song

Pentarax : Ten years later; still amazing

Fluffykatana : I lost my shit when they did canvas bags XD

Evan Leo : Ironically this was their hit.

Tommy Stiller : That take on me was impressive

Jason Basa : the progression of intervals (1 5 4 6) might be the same but the chords are not. Same can be said for every blues song.

_CK_ : Never knew Mini Ladd, jim parson and down syndrom jack black had a band

THE RUMEYSA : Türk varmı türk👍👀❤

Thomas G O'Neill Jr : Total Genius!!!!!!

OG Gregory : i was in DUBLIN a few weeks ago and the guy DID THIS SONG... AND PRETENDED HE MADE IT UP....

nicholascalvin2 : The middle guy looks like a Sharper I Jack Black
