There are some who would scoff at the notion that all pop music sounds the same and is a repetitive product of an industry machine. Unfortunately for many of us, the Australian comedy rock band ‘Axis of Awesome’ proves just how much of our modern pop world is built upon just four chords.

Using the same four chords, they go through 40 years of pop and rock classics to prove their point. From Journey, to Beyonce, Green Day, Jason Mraz, The Beatles, maroon 5, and so many more. The audience (like us) is a mix of both stunned and impressed, so prepare to have your mind blown by how many tunes you know and love that sound more alike than you think.
