"Good evening ladies and gentlemen I'm Jordan, I'm Lee, and I'm..
And we are The Axis Of Awesome!
And I'm Benny

We've been a comedy rock band for close to 40 years now and all that time, we've never had a hit.
Yeah but you guys know why?
Cause we never wrote a four chord song.
What's that, what's a four chord song Benny?
All the greatest hits for the past 40 years just use four chords, same four chords for every song. It's dead simple to write a pop hit.
Just four?
Yeahyeahyeah these four here: E, B, C#m, A

Alright let me get this straight here chicken little. What you're trying to say is, you can take those four chords, repeat them, and pump out every pop song ever. Is that's what you're saying?
Fuck off!
yeah, fuck off... Chicken little.

Just listen (Journey - Don't Stop Believing)
Do you recognize this?
Yeah that is Don't Stop Believing by journey (that's a great song) very original song
There's a few more that fit, check it out"

My life is brilliant, my love is pure
I saw an angel, of that I'm sure
People killing people dying
Children hurting hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Won't you turn the other cheek
Forever young, I want to be
Forever young
I won't hesitate, no more no more
it cannot wait, I'm yours
This is the way you left me, I'm not pretending
No love no hope no glory, no happy ending
Cause you were amazing, and we did amazing things
If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
And can you feel the love tonight
And she will be loved, yes she will be loved
Pictures of you, pictures of me
Hung up on your wall, for the world to see
Cause I can't live, with or without you
Whenever I fall, at your feet
You let your tears...
Am I not pretty enough
Is my heart to bro...

"Double time?
Double time!"

When I find myself, in times of trouble
Mother Mary Comes to me
Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner
That's the way it's gonna be little darling
We'll go riding on the horses
Yeah, Yeah
No woman no cry
Mama this surely is a dream
I come from a land down under
Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
Take on me (When I come around)
Take me on (When I come around)
I'll be gone in a day or two

Save tonight
(Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you)
Find the break of dawn
(There's nothing that hundred men or more could ever do)
If I were a boy
(I know she's playing with me)
I think I would understand
(Well that's ok cause I have no self esteem)
With a thousand eyes and a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Cause I'm not here for your entertainment
You don't really wanna mess with me tonight
Can't read my, can't read my
No you can't read my poker face
Come on Barbie lets go party
Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
She wants to touch me wo-hoo
She wants to love me wo-hoo
She'll never leave me wo-hoo
Wo-ho oh oh
(MGMT - Kids on kazoo)
Enjoy yourself take only what you need from it
Take your canvas bags
Take yourcanvas bags
Take your canvas bags to the supermarket
Take your canvas bags
Nothing's right, I'm torn
I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed, lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed, into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see
I'm more than a bird, I'm more than a plane
I'm a bird-plane, I'm a bird-plane
A mother fucking bird-plane
Doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver, the way things have gone?
And doesn't it seem peculiar that everyone wants a little more.
So that I do remember to never go that far,
That's all it takes to be a star
