I think it’s E F#m C#m A. I’m not sure at all @MaplePvP I think it’s E F#m C#m A I’m not sure at all i have the sheet music if you wanna learn it email me at firstname.lastname@example.org @00nic6 Actually it’s E B C#m A THIS IS AWESOME! fabulous! so talented and so true. only 4chords to make a song! and now this song is becoming a hit lol thats awsome i agree he does look like jack black :3 @classicrockboy93 lol the same as Train – Hey soul sister xD and im benny xD Didn’t these guys just rip off Rob Paravonian’s Pachabel Canon in D rant? Impressive performance, though. Holy crap, it’s an Australian Jack Black! viva la simplicity….the chords are C G Am F (capo at fret 4) 😀 Can’t read my can’t read my no he can’t read my pooker face *Cmon barbie lets go party“ – WIN! aussies? Wow, You are good !!! @bmiki333 no way, its E, B, C#m, A. Same pattern, different notes. i tell ya what i fookin love this congrat 😀 fuck off chicken-little 🙂 3:19 hahaha aix of awesome are awesome! @ToshiGilmour that’s not really a win. +, its cant read MINDS cant read minds no he cant read a mind pokerface hell yeah, awesome! 2:28 – 2:52 greatest part! @,@ wow xDDD that was hilarious/amazing but did anyone realize that those are the four chords of canon? xDD -yeah fuck off chicken-little!- 😛 37 songs 😛 Defecating on somebody else’s music, not making it is not a great art . Perfect noise for the lowest quality public toilets. Enjoy yourselves. This was awesome I never realized that all those songs had the same chords @richardying14 I think the last line is „A mother f***in bird-plane.“ Or that could just be my corrupt mind. Wow. 38 songs! I think I should write a four chord song 😛 It’s not the chords, it’s the progression. Any four chords in the same key played in that order would work. Yay Offspring \m/ the keyboard guy… he is FULL OF WIN!!! Coool I-LOVE-‚EM! Great omg 38 if i counted right….how uncreative can thos bands be to just use those chords -.-‚ 😀 but this version is better^^ Muito legal!!valeu!! @Sofalovesmusic There’s an updated version with 96 songs…and more are being added from time to time. „when i come around“ xDDD love this video! 😀 @RealDavoX awesome! do you have the link to that?? GENIUS . Ver funicular whats the name of the beginning of his playing piano ? stxstx2222: Look, you might not like/agree/respect the song. Maybe they played your favorite song in there. Just don’t be hypocritical while criticizing them. (And, I feel if they applied themselves, they could be very famous.) F!@#ing great and its funny because its all true lol i’ve been trying to tell everyone this for years. This made my day…..sometimes people don’t believe me when I say most songs only use a few chords…..these guys proved it in a hilarious way!!!! SOOOO TRUE I LOVE IT! 🙂 WaneStars: Critisizing them ? I think they are beyond criticism. Famous – i am sure they can be famous. Hypocritical – i am not sure if you know the meaning of the word. No music, never mind my favorite can or should be offended by vultures like them … It would go well with the music coming from expurgating upset stomachs…. Enjoy yourself. F’awesome save tonight and africa do go along very well actually awesome Brilliant!! 😀 @Imaducklol well, shadow of the day is definitely a pop song. stfu hmm the video is kind of broken when I want to watch it… It breaks at 0:09 =// Want the video back! =( awesome i love chicken little! wich is the song that it’s played at 4:16? (with that little thing) @sakurazara18 MGMT – kids @sakurazara18 kids by MGMT =] GREAT song. haha and the kazoo is a nice touch. lol All hail the Axis of Awesome. man.. when benny say yeah at 0.45 it reminds me of eminem.. hahaha Genius. @guitarmasta456 name them all 400 pop songs i cant think of nearly that many that are pop hits I knew that Green Day had to be in there somewhere, even though „When I come Around“ doesn’t exactly follow those 4 chords. It’s great none the less. Great! You guys are tops in my book, great act. Would love to see yas live. But I live in the USA and I’m broke Eminem’s Not Afraid has the 4 chords in em…just found out today when listening to his new album Sometimes I feel like I don’t have a partner. How can you dislike this vid… 194 dislikes at the time I’m posting this. All that says to me is that 194 salty haters have come across this video. dude this is the best thing ever.. i love the nerdy guy hes wayy cute and an awsome singer.. heehee he does really remind me of chcken little and the guy in the middle is like and australian jack black! haha i love them all blond guy is really cool! @stxstx2222 I don’t understand how music can be offended. After all its an inanimate object of sound. Calling them vultures and then somehow relating it all to upset stomachs? Your comment has the smallest bit of sense and the fact that you are defending songs from a minor joke is ridiculous. These guys are merely pointing out small facts between the songs and you are taking such offense to it its almost funny. Loosen up….Enjoy yourself. brilliant They was 40 Diffrent songs xD this video is killer!! What is the song that goes ‚if I could then I would, I’d go wherever you will go‘ ??? Please I really need to know @stxstx2222 brainless brat you make no sense 3:46…Brilliant @stxstx2222 I like how you are getting so worked up about this. They are a „Comedy Rock Band“(Highlight: COMEDY) from the start, not out to make „real“ music. I wonder what you think of Weird Al when he makes a parody of the songs you like, bitch and moan some more? to ChronosMystic: NOT MUCH. (re:“ I wonder what you think of Weird Al when he makes a parody of the songs you like, bitch and moan some more „) i don’t waste my time on crap like that. Weird Al is beyond criticism. „bitch and moan“ – is a language of severely intellectually and educationally deprived thugs … The only musicians i don’t appreciate are the ones who don’t make music … see the comment from Boomsplostion „well it’s not really their song it’s a parody rewrite“ @x32jusuf what about the keyboard guy in the back 0:57 , is he full of win too? many Coldplay songs use these chords too… @elluart0609 Lol i know how you feel @x32jusuf YES WIN!!!!! So much WIN \o/// @elluart0609 maybe you should have written a 4 chord song 😉 who would dislike this? this is so funny. SO FUNNY! ÜBER AWESOME MUSIC SKETCH! Calling them awesome would be redundant, but it’s true. HAhaha ^^ THay ROCK LOL !! AWESOME what are the 4 chords plz tell me So true. That’s why I can’t listen to commercial radio these days. I guess some of these songs contain more chords in other parts of the song, but they chose the part that is similar. If you want the chords you could just check one of them out.. like Save to night you can play eg with Am, F, C, G or similar in the key you desire. In that setting they are 6,4,1,5 in relation. I feel the need to stress out how INCREDIBLY AWESOME this video is. What can I say besides this is the best music-video ever uploaded on YouTube 😀 This song is getting annoying… I can’t stop listening tough >.> must admit, I lol’d holy shit! australian jack black. So what are the 4 chords then? For guitar, these chords are: C – G – Am – B (ie, the same chord progression for „Hey Soul Sister“ minus the capo on the 4th, if that helps) @myhospitalmusic B? i think its F -> C G AM F Hey Soul Sister is C G Am F, not C G Am B (and capo on the 4th) The Chords are: C – G – Am – F I love this hhaaha that’s interesting @93RNM hh how classic 😀 Roxx ;] @93RNM when i play hey soul sister im capo on the 10th fuck you guys i already made a video of this Woah, this is actually awesome. neat o. LOL!!!!!! thats funny.. rp1117 your so right only 3.5kk views ? and lady gaga have over 200kk …. thats sux HAHAHA!!! GENIUS!!! So freaking awesomee!! ^^ @gott957 yea its good… but you obviously havent see much in ure life F,in awesome roflmao. What chords are these? i like birdplane ^^ Brilliant!!! 😀 @mvszao NO if your mother likes that she can call me . This just proves how utterly crap toadys „hits“ are. @l3o0405 maybe those 200 who dislike the vid are either fans of the singers & don’t like any kind of jokes or they’re the singers themselves. Which I doubt. They just don’t get the joke 🙂 It’s great vid and I love those songs. I don’t care they’re 4 chords songs. 😀 we can say it’s the modern blues: 4 chords instead of 3! Haha :D,This is cool,you can also sing Justin Bieber’s „Baby“ with only these 4 chords 😀 You say Soulja Boy-I say Judas Priest You say Miley Cyrus-I say Led Zepplin You say T-Pain-I say Kiss You say Flowers-I say Metallica You say Pink-I say Iron Maiden You say Hip Hop-i say shut the fuck up You say Pop-I scream Heavy Metal!! You say hanah montana-i hit you in the face 92% of teenagers have turned to Hip Hop and Pop.If you are part of the 8% that still listen to real music,copy and paste this message to another 5 videos. DON’T LET THE SPIRIT OF ROCK DIE! i love it. ive never seen something like that . FUCKing crazy what song is at 3:43 ? I’m a birdplane. @jegriva Benny keeps singing „Self-Esteem“, Jordan’s part is still „You’re gonna go far, kid“, both by The Offspring. They sound freakin‘ cool together, by the way… MUITO BOMM assistam meu canal! pu-pu-pu-poker face pu-pu-pu- poker face! CMON BARBIE LETS GO PARTY! haha thats halairious! =) wait a sec… the WHOLE thing is halairious! „am i not pretty enough“ HAHA PRICELESS!!!! =P Yeah it is all Pachebel’s Canon. lol @ 5:05: doesn’t that sound familiar? @DevonAlexanderHess We do tend to have are own preferences. @OisinIE Then what about the 207th dislike? A miss-click? 🙂 mad props to them @greycarrot Neva gonna let you down! @sw1seman: And for example in Germany, we haven’t heard of Axis of Awesome before… But now… some know this and love this song Love it =) its a song made of other songs. A song within a song amazing many of the songs overlap with Rob Paravonian’s Pachelbel Rant. My guess that Pachelbel’s Canon in D is the source to all of these… wat are these cords then? yeh it is C maj G maj Am and F maj so epic! bravo!! 3:15 so epic 210 mothef*ckers haven´t sense for humor „Ya, Fack off…chicken little…“ @maluco2009, The chords follow the number theory pattern of „1 5 6 4“ and can be played in any key if applied. In this case the exact chords happen to be „Emaj Bmaj C#min Amaj“ @naijfboi what you just said is not true. all of these songs use those 4 chords but the „complication“ you are referring to is different strum patterns or beats. also artists make these chords cound different by picking the notes separately or something similar. they are using the came chord progression for the majority of the song and elaborating on the basic chords a little. sure some of these songs might differ in the bridge and such but not by much. know what youre talking about next time. das egt cool XD very very clever. this is very nice. i never rilised dat @pianomanmu11 oh, sorry for the misunderstanding then 🙂 Alicia Keys-No one Awesome!! @caboosukin, he ups the tempo, but it’s still the same four chords. eccezionali this is still the best video on the whole internet. i am serious. This is fantastic! @ericvirgo why so serious 😛 hahaha the guy in the middle is like the Australian version of Jack Black Really cool.I cant stop laughing 🙂 1+ but could these be done when using baré/power chords? i love how the audience doesn´t get it.. Love Chicken Little Benny…. @liquidzero5 of course, same thing. @byemynameishi You can download mp3 from YouTube by using dirpy. Here you can download this commedy: w_w_w.dirpy.com/studio/5pidokakU4I And here you can download the official song by Axis of Awesome: w_w_w.dirpy.com/studio/qHBVnMf2t7w I downloaded there.. so if you can’t download it just tell me.. If you need the video, click on Video Downloads, down the page. Bye. @jacosalem28 I’m sorry for saying all you that the right chord isn’t C#m, but it’s C#/Dbm. You just where Lee (who plays guitar) puts his hand. If you aren’t believing me, just need to see on chordfind. Write 0,4,6,6,5,4 and you will see the same chords that Lee are using. Enjoy 🙂 @Ipnoz21 Oh sorry for my mistake.. You just need to see where Lee puts his hand.* And ChordFind is a website.. ChordFind com just do open D Bm open A open G for this progression on guitar its easier. not the same key but the same progression and sounds great, plus its a bit easier on the ol‘ fingers. D Bm A G (those chord name might not be right for the key but those are the right chords anyway. :P) theyre all open chords except Bm which is a simple bar chord. Fuck Off! 😛 @KAPOLLO101 He’s the australian version. You can watch some of his acting in Ronnie John’s Half hour. However, I think he’s a better singer. That is brilliant Go Benny! AMAZING : O Awesome. However I haven’t heard of most of these songs. @pithcat your an idiot @liquidzero5 and your a moron who can’t play guitar and has no understanding of musical concepts. oh and you got me so good then, „filthy mouth“ damn i got burned! this IS THE best thing i have ever seen. period. This will become a hit for sure! im watching this in fkin loops for n hour now lol Best Video On YouTube! @NuklearAngel I can see how people would get the two confused. It also goes to show how few people read the description 🙂 Ok, now I’m fairly convinced my conspiracy nut friend who rants at me about mind control is onto something…. has anybody else noticed the guy in the wall behind benny? lol. awesome song! is there any way to download this video onto my ipod? Anyone care to tell me the chords that are played? 😐 @sReelous E B C#m A The chords are C,G,Am,F. awsome :):) awesome. Its actually a catchy song too lol… mostly cause it is made up of catchy songs Awesome, I love Tripod! Oh wait… Holy fuck that dude in the middle looks the illegitimate love child of Donkey Kong crossed with a 40 gallon drum. holy shit i think i just blew a load in my draws A-Fucking-Mazing Although I can not deny the utter brilliance and awesomeness of this, songs are about melody and not chords : ) Great act! Thanks for this! the succession is I-V-VI-IV, and is present in probably the 99% of modern pop music. Sometimes they start from VI grade, playing VI-IV-I-IV. „birdplane“ is their song and it only uses 4chords, did he lie? This one shows how original everyone has always been!!! Esqueceram de Mirror – Michael Jackson @bentobi they wrote Birdplane as a parody they technically didn’t write the music for it @Alvamalex that’s the right intervals, but they pushed it up a major third, making it E, B, C#m, and A. You can also have the chords to „We Go Together“, Hoagy Carmichael’s „Heart and Soul“ (at some parts of the song), and „Stand by me“ (if you change the timing a little) with rearranging the chords in the order of C, Am, F, G. @Alvamalex woops, that was actually my comment, I forgot to sign in and that was my sister’s account 😛 @Altik0 That’s close enough to fourty for a comedy rock band. Awesome indeed @Piexing well, then three musicians used it wrong, of course pop means popular, but in music it’s reserved for a genre started by the beatles which lasted till today!! Did anybody notice that the title of this video says „4 Four Chord Song“ … four four chord song. #FAIL @kiarasuzuki People could search „4 chord song “ or „four chord song“ They would find this video no matter which way @kiarasuzuki Dude they mean Axis of awesome 4 /-four chord song (with song titles) @jaketyler11 Forgot to put e as major, b as major, c# as minor, and a as major, but still nice job „Fuck Off!!“ „Yeah, fuck off…. chick little“ hahahah hilarious! @random804 you did incredible work loveee it! this was great If Axis of Awesome made full cover versions of all songsi n the world I’d be listening to Axis of Awesome all the time. Go listen to the original of the songs they play in this video and then listen to this. In my opinion almost all the covers they sing here are better then the originals. Amazing! truly awesome im so flashed right now this was maybe the most epic awesome superb thing i´ve ever heared thumb up because you know it too @trackstar6273 ok, under the bridge is anything but mediocre…. Best thing ive seen ina long time. brill 🙂 Quite funny. thanks! L.A.M.E. Lame Ass Music Entertainment Not really funny, but entertaining and creative Ily this ahahah omgsh I write music and I have actually used that before ahahahahah Ducaraleo!! Muito bom!! Congratulations, guys!!! @killAFreakZeak : the chords are E, B, c# and A @Scardriver I am not that serious.I am just joking. @killAFreakZeak You’re right. <> *This is not music, not at all.*<> @coolalliki You are right! They should cover all of them songs, That would be really cool 🙂 *thumbs up* @TerryReid92 I stand corrected, nice spot 🙂 This is awesome!! B-) love it Hey Soul Sister 😀 would be another song @Jochnickel lol my friends and i are working on something along the lines of this and Soul Sister is in the lineup, so check it out when its posted. subscribe to know when its up =) geile sache 🙂 hahaha =))))))) like the guy playing keyboard 😡 To be exact, this songs do not share all the same chords. They just transposed the original chords to fit into these 4 Chords. They are just having the same intervals between their chords… [/smart-ass] Nice Video @D00mbr0s intro is nice too I wish someone made a spotify list with all of these songs and linked it here 😛 The best of its kind!!! M#ovi#e Wa#tcheru#s (delete #) has now become the best site for online movie watching!! @Dickmuncha101 what the hell is your problem? Top!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! very GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD @mashedpotatoman it is becuase he doesn’t get enough attention, so he acts like this 🙂 im gona write a 4 Four Chord Song and make money!!!! HAHA!!! goshh!! what animation and awesome story!! my kids loved it… thanks Movie Watcherus….:) guys, this is the site you gotta check out for the best quality movies!! …and im Benny! now i am satisfied cos i dont need to search online anymore for better quality videos on the net…its all at M#o#vie W#a#tcherus (no #)!! Wow these guys are great!. It is what would happen if you put “ Flight of the Conchords“ and Jack Black in a mixmaster and press the „blend“ button! XD @martinjamieson yeah @M34tgr1nd3r More from the ppl there,don’t really understand what they are saying. |Mb that’s why,i don’t know.I didn’t give attention too. Incredible and vastly entertaining – thank you! Also: Hot ’n Cold, Umbrella, that new hit by Enrique Iglesias etc. etc. etc. What r the 4 chords?!?! @CardPianoguy52 E, B, C# min, A Technically your I, V, vi, IV roman numeral chords… Which sadly enough is so close to the Ice-cream chords (I, vi, IV, V) which was prominent in so many blues and slow swing pieces and 70’s beats (Lollipop, lollipop, Blue moon etc…) @willygca1 me too i really like the singer in the middle i come from a land down under the ninjas have to save china from the cruelty of the merciless conqueror!! its not any easy task….will they make it?? check it at Roulette Secret now! the piano player has a very good voice o.0 the best of the 3 @23arkhamasylum its labeled at the bottom @Shangrilama94 Why should they make a full cover of Let It Be? I have watched this video so many times that not only can I name the next song, I can sing the entire video without the video playing. lol Hahaha! Too cool! Only 4 chords that Is awesome. tenacious d fail @TrilbyHatMan No its E, B, C sharp, A… @potatochimp yes i heard this on the radio this morning Awesome !!!!!!!!!! @omgcrayonz look up youtube to mp3 and download it that way from the video @itscoolbro2 They change after Take On Me, when they start Save Tonight. fuk off chicken little :)) Good news folks!! Now you are able to watch your favorite movies online with surprising quality of the videos…..catch up all the excitement at M o v i e W a t c h e r u s..:) hmm… exactly… simple pop music.. few chords, same candenzas.. that’s all.. this video is freaking awesome! Take your hats off to them. The piece makes its point in a clever and original way – oh and its funny too :) @cyaspy Though the idea is rearrangement/repetition of the chords, not necessarily progression; therefore any arrangement of the chords is valid to the idea. AoA transpose many of the songs sampled here in order to fit their chosen key (Which… I believe is E). I was wishing from a long time that I should’ve known about a site that provide good satisfying picture quality for online movie watching….and guess what??? Now its here..M o v i e W a t c h e r u s is the one I needed…!!! fuck off chicken little 🙂 Fuck me, it’s a bit catchy though… Brilliant @codswallop321 probably not, because they deviated from the I V vi IV pattern. 🙂 I have heard Go West and PSB, tho not The Farm or Mr. McTell until now. More people should probably pay attention to Go West. And Altogether Now. And Streets of London. Seems the melancholy may help hilghlight the joy. Conspicuously those two songs are the first to pop up when searching for those artists on YouTube. 😀 I love benny!!! love it how cool is this ay 😀 i love it its like the best parts of the best songs the catchiest bits all put together in one catchy package so cool 😀 i think they should change their name to Axis of FUCKING COMPLETELY AWESOMENESSSs Can someone do a video tutorial with chords? @marlies1589 wtf are u talking about they create an act and act that they perform how the hell is that „too much time on their hands“ @GuitarBottle That would actually make sense 😀 @MrFinalheart It’s actually C#m,not Cm We saw it in our last german lesson =) it was really funny =) all song can be trasported to every tonality with their chaacteristic chords its easy „baby“ by JB is one of these stupid 4 chord songs LOL WHAT ABOUT THAT GLEE SONG??? SAME DEAL „baby baby baby oh“ by Justin Bieber! SAME THINGGG Man, every time I see this sort of thing on YouTube I think of how I used to do a medley like this at coffee shops in college for the same gag. „When I Come Around“, „Closing Time“, „Push“, „All Star“… all the 90s pop was four chords too… 300 people disliked this. The artists that wrote the songs, methinks? It’s funny how they say at the beginning they say they’ve never written a 4 cord song but then about half-way through they put in bird plane which is their own song! LOL! i love it!! question. what ARE the 4 chords ?? isn’t the title slightly wrong? it says „four four chord song“ @midnightlytes I do a G, D, EM, C and that is right i think… I am more than a bird… more than a plane… IM A BIRDPLANE! awesome 🙂 lol this video has 5,336,669 views and i am probably 336,669 of them Are you searching for an online movie watching site?? Check out Movie Watcherus…that’s the perfect site for all online movie watchers…? hay guys!!! i really am impressed by this site….its named Movie Watcherus….and it has got the wonderfull collection of movies and that too has many amazing features that will really surprise you!! „I’m more than a bird, I’m more than a plane, I’m a birdplane, „A MOTHERFUKIN BIRDPLANE!!“ haha XD hahahhahaha freaking love this shit!!! good stufff!!!!

Lola the big guy looks like jack black @AgeDrain How about „Four Chords That Made a Million“ by Porcupine Tree? no one laugh at im benny!!! awesome chicken little!! This was pure awesome. Great 🙂 @Mrsunyshooter C, G, A-, F. Cheers. @fishnut71 GREEN DAY NOT POP? Pop stands for ‚popular‘ music and encompasses almost everything in the mainstream at that given time. Green Day IS pop. @Arceupins Green Day is Punk not Pop troppo scontato per i musicisti! è un segreto tra noi che non va mai rivelato. Solo i dream theater e gli steel rain non l’hanno mai usato it just nvr gets old like the double rainbow song that recently showed itself to the world. besides that these guys are awesome just awesome On a guitar you can go C, G, A minor, F as well and use a Capo on the 5th fret (or any fret really that fits the pitch or your singing voice) the audience’s cheering seemed really random at times awesome! 33 songs! @Elieeeeboy not awesome but Axis Of Awesome fat guy looks like a monkey when he begins to sing… The correct chords are: E major, B major, C Sharp minor, A major lol…. canon use the same chord sequence too. Lol I do this all the time it’s so much fun. Chicken little can sing! SWEET Raging laughter from the one person audience here! fucking genuis Benny is like the little dude! 😀 EPIK DEFINED . lol sick! @baseballplayer1993 correction, chicken little can SANG! haha Ima be honest, These guys are fucking awsome what are the chords? Burn’d like their name says, AWSOME!!! @ZC13 you don’t happen to have the sheet for piano? would be much appreciated awesome sketch really pissed me off when i heard channel 5 riped them off with that show don’t stop believing kinda sad most popsongs are made of the same formula @xxRedRose they can be but if you went and played the songs thier are differences but mostly they fallow the formula Greenday & The Offspring => no Pop :p xD Excellent !!!!!! m( _ _ )m @Maoman234 No. It isn’t. 4chan and Youtube are *completely* *entirely* different and the fact that you compared the two leads me to think that you’ve never been to 4chan. If a site is like 4chan because the commenters don’t think, every site is like 4chan. Am i the only one that literaly cumes when listen this, like hundred times per day? E-B-C#m-A Awesome … just Awesome! For all those that dont belive in evolution have a look at 1:53 and pause it 😀 Does he not remind you of an Australian Jack Black? 🙂 The Dude in the middle looks like Jack Black 😀 lol at bennys face at „she will be loved“ @oliversib123 1 million person grab other nice comments and make them boring. they are amazing, love it! :)) Nice ich find die lieder wie die sie singen oft besser :D^^ @buckley54 wtf? Born 2005+ or what? How can you not know them? And it’s not crap, either you listen to commercial shit such as Justin Bieber etc or you overslept a century -.- osammmmm! best part, 3:16 I love these guys ! Good stuff !!!! Couldn’t pick a better name for their group: these guys are great! they re axis of awesome !! oh my god WOWWW great ! @51tj o.o oh crud… if I had doubts before, then… just… wow… When I come around YEAH GREEN DAY!! You say Lady Gaga-I say Guns N‘ Roses You say Miley Cyrus-I say Led Zepplin You say T-Pain-I say Kiss You say Flowers-I say Metallica You say Pink-I say Iron Maiden You say Hip Hop-i say shut the fuck up You say Pop-I scream Heavy Metal! You say Hanah Montana-i hit you in the face 92% of teenagers have turned to Hip Hop and Pop.If you are part of the 8% that still listen to real music,copy and paste this message to another 5 videos. DON’T LET THE SPIRIT OF ROCK DIE!!! Not Afraid – Eminem The Theme Song to VicTorious Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt – The Mars Volta Paparazzi and Dance in the Dark – Lady Gaga Where is the Love? – Black Eyed Peas This Celluloid Dream – AFI There’s no end to these songs! D: awesome just shows how un-original we are My guess is that the chords are Am, F, C, G since many of the songs can be played like that but as Haramiz said its all about harmonic progression… @daenque its C, G, Am, F. but those are the chords for c major. they’re playing in E so the chords are E, B, C#m, A That was funny as hell and pretty damn good at the same time 😛 love it 😀 @RifleAnime um yea like every song is they are playing in Emajor, and the only song that sounds to be in the right key is don’t stop beleiveing. there might be another, but overall most of them are wrong. @melloyellow012 No it’s fucking true! The central singer really reminds of Jack Black! @melloyellow012 He’s like 20 times better lmaooo,wow thats so true,i was using the four chord thingo before i saw this then my friend showed me,soo true ahah xD Benny is the best of this group . Really good . This one just keeps getting better and better, every time. Thank you, Axis of Awesome! Just my daily dose of the axis of awesome 🙂 hahaahaha @N1NJ4CH1CK if you’re watching it on the ipod/iphone, then titles don’t show up. blame apple for that. haha after this i learned so many new songs The four chords used are E, B, C sharp minor, and A, however they changed the key of all of the songs to E Major to make them flow better. If the key was in C Major the chords would be C, G, A minor and F. Everywhere I read: „Benny is the best“ but that’s not true. Together they are the best. what are the 4 chords they use? What are the 4 chords? @XBLScreeam Nobody else liked your comment either as you can see, so you might as well tell the other 6,883 commenter to gtfo @springleaflane E / B / C# / A holy shit so many people have watched this video, after seeing this on tv I immediately youtubed it and found that hundreds of other Australians did the same thing. its been so long since then but even now the oldest comment is 5 hours old! Epic shit. This has been edited down from the original telecast. Some songs are missing. Search for the original uploaded by Cataphract Those guys are so epic THERES MORE SONGS ON THAT CHORDS Mainstream is poison, I’ve always been saying it. No originality, with the music, or the people that listen to it. @maysinouany We all know that. It would take days to play them all, even at double speed..:) 3:21 to 3:30 is awesome Love it! Avesome!!! It’s greeeeeaaaaaaat!!! ;o))) is „a boss“ somethin in australia? or just a new thing I don’t know about xD @albrtsify I’d imagine they are I-IV-V-VI Can’t believe they didn’t include No One by Alcia Keys in there…still, it blew my mind. what four chord is it??? @TheJonas06 E B C sharp A @TheJonas06 C G Am F „yeah fuck off, chicken little“ Epic Face when He sings „She Will be loved“ xD the middle guy looks like the australian jack black 1:50 – We humans are so related to the apes… XD This i awsome 🙂 these guys are awesome! @mesternod.. holy shit he does to 😀 i’m wathcing this for the 6th time. i fucking love how they do the songs 😀 „fuck off, chicken little!“ XD Oh no! The Offspring were outed twice in a row! And Oim Benny mheuuu hur Eh, dingo, wana have a barbie on the beach ,g’day mate g’day i’m an aussie mhuee h Benny, i love you. You are so cute. That is all 🙂 @Danscottonair Emajor Bmajor Csharp minor Amajor Benny sings really good funny vid and as ashwalyeo says the pop music is all the same, Rock and Metal is still unique for every artist @aaalexxx78 Hahahahahaha, you’re pretty fucking stupid. @ashwalyeo the beatles one hit wonders? 😉 metal also follows the same easy structures and can be as interesting and boring as any other music! technical challenge, by the way, is never a criteria for good music. NEVER!!!! The WOLRDWIDE BEST Mashup of great songs;) thumbs up if you agree!! crazy I have watched this 9 times Benny, i love you. You are so cute. That is all 🙂 Benny, i love you. You are so cute. That is all 🙂 also, sara bareilles „love song“ lol. @FreakedFreshness I believe they’re using E, B, C#m, A. You could transpose that to other chord progressions (i.e. lower/raise key). The more common ones are: E (as above), C (C, G/B, Am, F), G (G, D/F#, Em, C) A (A, E, F#m, D) Some keys are easier to use a walk-down (i.e. where the 2nd chord has a different root note – like D/F#). But generally it sounds the same. 1 Missing Song: So Lonely – The Police i love it 🙂 *pure* xD Thumbs up if you got goosebumps it`s amazmng that is impsibol it`s amazmng @RaymondBrickheimer thumbs up because you’re gay Is it sad that I know this by heart? 🙂 I want someone to upload the recent one, they were on Radio 1 a couple of weeks ago. 38 songs !!!!! 367 terrorists openly hate epic win. 367 people are tone deaf. 0:50 ( if u wanna skip them talking about it. ) i came. Bloody brilliant! The funny thing is, those aren’t the actual chords used for the songs, but the lyrics fit right in! 🙂 what a dead audience… this is just so awesome Don’t see any justin bieber songs, not surprised. Amazing! lov‘ them!!! Epic! @MUTEGIO36 er ok, im guessin your about 5 years old with a comment like that, isnt it time you should be tucked up in bed with your teddy bear? That´s really great… Love it!! <3 xD i love this song. its so good and funny pretty goddamn awesome 😀 What are you all talking about? Jordan is clearly the better singer, hence they haven’t taught him 4 simple chords on an instrument and instead left him to go vocal solo. The pitching in „Can you feel the love tonight“ is perfect in my opinion. ROFLMFAO 2:20 „Am I Not Pretty Enough“ — O_o they forgot sooo many blink-182 songs (these same 4 chords) 😛 (and for the record, i love blink) @NetherMoore you know your just giving him compliments. I like how Benny says they haven’t written a four chords song, and then at the end they use their own song Fat guys cool just awesome 🙂 @Suisfonia You think? Sounds ok for a comedy group to me, but then again I’m no Simon Cowel. AWESOME! SHIT YEA!!! AUSTRALIA RAPES ALL!!! hahah deadly buzz @InformatikSuperheld C#m * 😉 This shat on every pop song. Not even a good shit, like horrible shit. It’s awesome because of that. It shows that pop takes no creativity/talent 😀 Genius. Australia ftw! umm… 8 chords… AKA Canon in D The chords are E – B – C#M – A There is a chord progression in minor that is also used that much. for example: Am F C G Somebody’s been doing their homework! shit @sclass904 yup and those are the chords they were using, i know how to play save tonight and its those 4 G, D, Em, C @15centsFran – In general It’s C G Am F and some of their variations @15centsFran – In general It’s C G Am F and some of their variations @15centsFran – In general It’s C G Am F and some of their variations I need these 4 chords guys! @RamblinRose84 E-B-C#m-A 😉 @Trotzkidesu He’s right. Just backing you up. 2 statements are better than 1. Should be #2 most viewed video on Youtube, after „Evolution of dance“. Awesome, fav+liked. am i not pretty enough?.. My mind just exploded. This has been stuck in my head for nearly a month now. I can almost sing them all in order which is quite sad. chords are definitely E, B, C#minor, A. click like if we helped 😛 axis of transposition *lol* these guys are great xD that´s really funny =) it is a funny video but they are talented i think. they have got great voices ! 🙂 4:10 3OH!3 yeeeah 🙂 🙂 @Prankcall12 He’s Greek @S3TVproductions It’s any 1, 5, 6minor, 4 progresion. Could be C, G, Am, F or G, D, Em, C I love this ! I know it by heart now :$ nice chicken….little! @Orkaen this version is available on Youtube as well, but I prefer the live version. Best eva! When they come back in from Take On Me into Save Tonight, what chord do they start with? A motherfucking birdplaaaaaane… This song makes my life love it <3 🙂 Tim Minchin XD I love these guys. damn funny you guys :p ahahaha, awesome xD @ninajo , @aflame.. The point here is the relative progression. You can play the progression in any of the 12 keys, their relationships stay the same. Hope this helps. @aflamevs2005 Isn’t that the same thing? Different key of course, but it CAN be played in other keys, not just E. @CPlusPlusFreak nah it’s a different chord progression. if you transposed E, B, C#m, A to the key of G you’d come out with G, D, E minor, C which chords are this? as i saw the vid one month ago it haves 6 million views ^^ @94theplayeryw A, E, Fis, As or meyby A, E, F, G 😛 @Groszek5 Thank you very much Call me mainstream; I very much love close to every song they are playing. 😀 And I like this video as much! @94theplayeryw E B C#m and A (: @heavydous Thx DUMBSTRUCK @ WurzHurz also the melody of a song comes from the chords, so crap chords = crap melody = crap song. hahaha Sch! Non-americains i only say. WOW Siete Fantastici!!! @greatislandprod thanks for the reply 😉 THEY ARE FUCKING AMAZING. Its so true… And that’s why most love songs and pop songs sound the same… this was absolutely amazing Self Esteem 😀 you know what jordon looks like jack black if not for the extra skin I think this is the only 20+ mash up i have ever heard wouldn’t it be ironic if they got a number 1 with a 4 chord song about how all number ones only use 4 chords. Very DAAS boys, very DAAS!! Gonna rush off and write a hit song cuz I have the chords memorized now, just need to write the lyrics. How hard can that be? @ikoropant97 😀 communism has everything to do with it! @MetalMiklos H?! I think you mean B seriously Thumbs up, if you hate „Thumbs Up if you…“ – Comments! 😀 chickenlittle Yeah, f*ck off… chicken… little! LOL this is awesome…….vote if you agree~! ^^ @MrRrreal rommel? I wanna see full show :O it is awesome :O Those guys became pretty famous after this thing. Benny is an absolute gun. I just played the Four Chord Songs of 2010 on my channel! A live singing, piano version of today’s pop songs! ha pause at 2:25 2:31 hahahahahaha @BeDo1612 How i met ur mother is the definition of awesomeness! @Sinorack the definition of a Long story GET TO THE FREAKIN‘ POINT, TED! @egi94 Why would a compilation of great songs make you feel sad about todays industry? shouldn’t the state of todays industry do that? „That’s all it takes to be a staaaaaaaaar“ awwww poor Benny gets shafted in the beginning and he looks pissed about it! yo guys you have to do covers to all of this songs! you are very good and cool singers!!!!!!! 🙂 i love it @PeerTheDong cuz its comedy XD @Matttoo after all, how good can the originals be if they’re just 4 chord songs anyway @PurletStar Fortunately, over 7 million other people know that now as well 🙂 398 ppl love Lady Gaga AMAZING Soo brilliant ilovethis Pop is so lame! as lady gaga and Beyonce Lol respect for chicken little with the high note. @AussieVlogging Bet some U2 fans got upset. Or maybe it was Bono himself. woot bird plane!! @geater this is awesome. Noone should dislike it. @BASBERT LOL you said period 404 dislikes not found 🙂 Torn by Natalie Imbruglia….why is it that once I get interested in a band or singer they end up everywhere?! @theigl nerd jokes FTW Get this song on spotify ! I don’t understand why people dislike this video, it’s a great piece of art ! axis of „Awesome“ its all in the name xD 7.5million views in 9 months! 😀 AWESOME xD same 4 chords all over 🙂 i diden`t know that! @marshmellowmyfellow Anything…? Oh my gosh, you’re gonna go far kid. Now i’m in love with you guys <3 AMAZING! Jordan used to go to my school 😀 True Story. this is pure genius they should get WAY more credit for it!!!!!! At 1.56 you can see a cat run across the stage. Thumbs up if you see it. Jeah, that’s real cool! Thumbs up if you hate all those „thumbs up if…“ comments! @sirdamian02 the play it in the key of E. So this is E B C#m A. An absolutely spectacular performance. Incredible sound and a very entertaining song. they called themselves ‚the axis of awsome‘, so obviously this IS awsome 0.0 38 songs!!! woo!! @RationalDischarge I don’t think that’s a problem, honestly. The songs are still different and good, they just use the same chord progression. Maybe artists spend too much time on the lyrics and forget to come up with the chords, or maybe the music industry pressures them to make songs faster and they just go with this standart progression. This makes clear how low the current POP music is. It’s all the same… Just goes to show, that the industrial engineering principle „Keep it simple and stupid“ applies to music as well. People really are simple creatures. =) @HSammyE Theyre playing in E, if that’s what you’re asking. (e b c#m a). Or did you mean something else? Haha thats great! My guitar teacher told me many songs, if they are put in the same key, can sound so alike, but you never understand it until you hear it! 🙂 They’re pretty smart 2 think up all of this stuff 2 put 2gether even the word „Awesome“ cannot describe how i feel about them 407 disliked… O M G great man. .the best!!!! @staub I tried to write it down, but from 3:22 it’s was to difficult for me… @ShiftyKickflip thats what favourites are for! bloody AWESOME Sweet. after all, briliant voices Epic never gets boring no matter how many times I’ve seen it xx lol i love it 😛 axis of awesome should do a cover of all these songs! i prefer the they play them better then some of the originals thumbs up if you agree! @supermegaawesomeshow . G, D, Em, C?? this is not a secret, all good songwriters know it, it is more physics than anything else … sort of Better with the beard Jordan. BEARD BEARD BEARD!… moustache. Far-out!, that was really awesomr=D Of course, these are the chords from Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Sorry guys, but this guy was there before you: /watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM @xstevie666 12 ? Since when are there more than 7 ? @xstevie666 plato agrees 🙂 genius!! amazing!! words can’t explain how i admire them with their talent! great job! 415 people are retarded @Armygirl0604 Sparkly, immortal men with abs and over-possessive tendencies. wow, not even 1% thumbs down, now thats rare This is so epic! <3 @rystaman10 E-B-C#m-A this is awesome alright !! @Blowitupnow He said four years. They formed in 2006. @Fansunu he says 40 That looks hard… We’re gonna do that in school!!! 4 chord song! @Fansunu er… i was er… talking about… er the other time… he mentioned 40 years…. @anticsabijach a mother fucking bird plane! I ove them! and just one ask: Can I play Last Christmas with this 4 Chords?? @Slapsta72 did they win? Benny looks like rob dyrdek. 😛 What four chords are they playing during the performance? That video is fucking EPIC!! So true, great show lads… So true…..great show lads benny has an amazing voice and plays piano, awesome show chicken little =] @gahobby Ok, so your saying The Beatles, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Journey are not good bands? F*ck off Chicken Little! Haha! Awesome. I love how they say they’ve never written a 4 chord song and then sing birdplane.. hahaha I love it when Benny hits the high note… brilliant : ) @Jacobbenham well, actually they never really did write it^^, it’s a parody on the song superman 😉 This is just great! Love all of them, music to the people @LukyKummy GREETINGS form Mars lol Benny is a beast STUMBLED! This is fucking genius, by the way <3 @uptheironsacdc I agree 100%. Eddie rules forever!! 2:29 it’s funny even after seen it 1000times 😛 best video eveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrr @cheefymcbeefy FUCKING FAGGOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! think how many more songs there are to go in this nearly a year later… F, C, G, A moll 424 people obviously did not find this video humorous. Love it. „ya fuck off chicken little“ LOL 424 people missed the like button @ntintokonkar perfect how it is you bastards! now i have all those horrible songs stuck in my head! argh! 28 or 38 songs? Now you got a hit 8 millions views 😀 I – V – VI – IV o_O! @kireloch I counted 39, 40 if you count „Birdplane“. I’ll agree that Benny is PROBABLY very talented. Four chords is not a true measure of his talent though 🙂 Still, great song. This axis is totally awesome! Double time? – DOUBLE TIME! OK wtf. This was something new. OK wtf. This was something new. what are the 4 chords? Amy lee twitter!! AMY MARRY ME  Brilliant! Thanks Amy this is funny!! 😉 Thanks amy this is awesome hahahaa you can notice that most of pop songs aren’t original at all they have the same chords and there are like other thousand of songs like that with those 4 chords G D Am C this is so great! this sucks they are really awesome!!!!!!!!!1 Lol :L these guys are awesome :p This is so rad! Hey I just discovered another song that goes with these 4 chords….The chorus of „Today“ by Smashing Pumpkins! Genius! You have to look at it this way Dirow95 and WorldofLithium – After over 8 million hits, it’s refreshing to know that there have only been 426 morons to have viewed this video ! – Love this video <3 427 people missed the thumps up button :o) thumbs up if you think this video is fucking awesome!!!! thumbs up is Amy Lee sent you here 😛 I play it with C-G-Am-F. I am in love with the miracle of the 4-chord song aaaaaaaaand thats why i idont like POP… too generic for my ears. thats brilliant I am in love with Jack Black look alike, Chicken Little and ‚Not Pretty Enough‘-man 😀 (L) Thumbs up for actually doing the high note in „take on me“ right! You guys just made a pop hit xD 4 chord : E / B / C#m / A @pirateninjab not at all. just tired of reading that same comment everywhere. @notablegoat Australia’s national anthem isn’t in there. @anneroos8 They’re usually C major, G major, A minor, F major, though bands are known to translate it to a different key, either because they cant sing in that key’s range or merely to hide the fact that it sounds like every other song with that chord progression …..I’ve watched this so many times….and I never noticed they’ve been a band for FORTY YEARS XD @onetwoBias The guy at the keys is actually a good singer“ nice we filipinos like it Ah, and when they change from starting on I to starting on VI, they aren’t playing in double time anymore. @OmniChange Goodeye mate, goodeye @OmniChange and for that matter what do austraillian little league coaches say to their batters when they don’t swing at a bad pitch? @Soccorchic101 and that’s why you sir, are awesome. @XakTerrible Hate to burst your bubble but the reason they don’t listen is because they don’t care. Yes, these songs all use the same chord progression, but you know it also goes back way further than pop music. There’s only so many chord progressions that don’t sound like shit, so it should hardly be surprising that a lot of writers have used a nice, safe I-V-vi-IV progression. The song is funny, but the fact is if you simplify enough you can make any two songs sound the same. Gonna see them tonight in Stockholm! @winamlikenijas you lucky bastard! 2:27 – EPIC! or actually whole song is bloody brilliant.. BRILLIANTT!! Benny Davis sing better than the other 2 @Mickylove76 C, Am, G and F 😀 @Gossipgirlnow actually, it’s C#, Am, G and F 😉 AWESOME HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Can’t hear the guitar :/ PERFECT!!!! am i the only who wishes they sung some of these songs? i looked up horses and waltzing matilda and youre amazing because i thought they sounded cool when they played it…i was disappoint when i found out they were slower then this version and not nearly as awesome 🙁 does this have something in common with nazi germany? Awesome, it realy is! I might try on guitar some time Existenz’d @BassOMasta sorry you’re right about B 🙂 but i think C#m sounds better 🙂 try it on the piano @RamsesGommers YEAH!! 🙂 C#m maybe sounds better, I haven’t tried out that yet 🙂 I don’t play piano I just play guitar, bass and drums 😛 444 people use 5 chords. thats for proovin that popmsuic is really simple shit 444 people don’t know what’s 4 chord’s is Unbeliveable:D Awesome job! @randomchap100 this was a 2009 performance… I think Hey soul sister came out Early 2010 @gorbachev9 I’m sorry to tell you but „get up stand up“ actually have 1 chord 😛 still an awesome song tho Fag00ts like Wizard123, Kimpan905 and other who comment about like or dislike button instead you should enoy the clip Soon it will come a justin bieber thing again trust me Thumbs up if you have already search all the musics they sang…. ^_^ The chords: E, B, C#m, A. its kinda sad all of those song are using same chords and mega hits :/ They really are AWESOME ! 🙂 @0xxWCCxx0 how about C – G – Am – F? Hahahaha original dont stop believing is not like they play it but the rest fits. this must come from the fact that those few chords have this wonderful „cathing“ effect. Melodies with those chords are very attractive to most people. This is a relatively new discovery, so pop groups and singers of the 21st century mostly all use these few chords to write their songs. You can even notice that they dont play many songs from the 80s. Thats becouse they used different harmonies. the boys did a great job:) Furthermore, if you look at the music from the 80s, like final countown, sweet child of mine, poison(alice cooper), van halens jump and others, you would see that each song had different chords back then. final countdown: F#m-D-Hm-E jump: mostly Hm poison: refrain has, i think, 6 different chords if i remember correctly and so on, while todays pop artists use the chords in this video to make their songs. It truly is a good recipe for success 🙂 anyone pauze this vid at 2:01? benny’s like a little rat ore something! hilarious xD they forgot a lot of songs, especially from Bush, Matchbox 20, Creed, and 3 Doors Down. *shudder*… plus, MGMT’s Kids uses that progression, but starts on the third chord–the minor chord. But oh well, that’s just nitpicking. This video is awesome. this comment will randomly get thumbs up They also missed Amelie’s Love song – „a motherfucking birdman“ – massively enjoyable nonetheless. They also missed Amelie’s Love song in the song credits – just on the end of „birdman“ @Jenfucuis What’s the matter, pussyboy? Awlfully quiet all of a sudden! LMMFAO @ U and your donkey dick suckin‘ friends…..and Your mothers! LMMFAO !!!! 😉 @Jenfucuis Oh, that’s right…..you mother’s a whore too….that’s why you are so upset. LMMFAO !!! CANVAS BAGS! EEEEEEE!!! xD 453 people are artists which have their secret out there now. how many songs do they sing @smileynaill1 38 songs i counted @smileynaill1 38 @brucegxyz hm doesnt exist? thats just like saying the same for Em. the chords that dont exist are H# and E#. but i did mean H for the jump song ^^ I’m pretty sure they sang some of those songs in a different key from the original, but that was awesome nonetheless. It’s actually kind of pathetic when you think of it… Just four chords has made the hitlists everywhere on Earth. Four chords?! And they’ve all become famous and made money. Which idiot couldn’t do this? You can learn to play these four chords on every instrument in like what? A week? Less? And then make up big hits by singing fucking pathetic pop songs and earn shit loads of money… Pathetic pop people… i would like them to come to Japan !! the song is called DONTTRUSTME @random804 In contrast to that.. Me and a friend are considering to make a cover over this.. when i learn to play piano, and he learns guitar skills… wie benni bei 2:03 ne grimasse schneidet xD so cool. love them!!!! its unreal how they sing every song better than the original! omg, this is amazing! just love it! 458 people only know three chords Thank god you put the songs in the description….I wanted to go through all of the actual songs, but everytime I tried to check the annotations, I kept listening to the video all the way and forgetting what I was doing <.< Tih is amaizing! we’re discussing this video at music class at school 😛 im fucking have to learn this four chords! 😀 Me and my sister is going to sing this song on our moms wedding!! XD this world, god >< Full of win That´s the awesomest thing that i´ve ever seen! :DDD @Zoney1 That explains why i like him xD hahah love it Kommentare sind geschlossen.
