"Four Chords"

"Four Chords" is one of the Axis of Awesome's best-known works. It is a medley of popular songs, set to the I–V–vi–IV progression.[9] Many of the songs selected do not actually follow this four-chord progression, and some of the ones that do only include it briefly. Since these four chords are played as an ostinato, the band also uses a vi-IV-I-V, usually from the song "Save Tonight" to the song "Torn". The band plays the song in the key of D (E in the live performance on YouTube), so the progression they use is D-A-Bm-G (E, B, C#m, A on the live performances). Most of the songs have been transposed from their original keys.

The band continually vary the songs comprising the medley, often incorporating new releases. The Axis' song "Birdplane" (itself a parody of the Five for Fighting song "Superman") is always included, as well as Australian folk song "Waltzing Matilda" and "Down Under" by the Australian band Men at Work. The medley usually starts with Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'". The song always concludes with the chorus of "Scar" (by Missy Higgins), except with the final line changed from "Could you leave me with a scar?" to "That's all it takes to be a star" (referring to the four chords themselves).

On 20 July 2011, the Axis of Awesome released an official music video for "Four Chords" on their YouTube channel.
