as i'm sure many musicians on here realize, many many songs all have the same chord progression: I, V, VI, IV. for example... D, A, B, G. i'm curious about how many songs that we can collectively come up with with this progression. i've always thought about it a lot but this video inspired me even more:



other examples of songs: just a friend by biz markie, apologize by one republic, one last breath by creed

so yeah. name more songs please. gogogogoogo

when i come around is always one that first comes to mind for me(along with a majority of other green day songs), as well as plenty more songs by the offspring, it's mostly with poprock bands like them because they all tend to use the same power chords in their songs and there's only so many ways to play them hahaha

it's pretty cool how many good catchy songs can be written with the same chords, there's something about D A B G that hooks people
