Axis of Awesome
« on: September 13, 2010, 07:45:54 PM »
From a blog a frequent comes the discussion of plagiarism of music and how easy it is to subconsciously 'make up an old song' because of the fact that there are only 7 whole notes, forming 4-chord rock, which makes up a majority (if not all) of the popular rock songs of the past 50-60 years.

The Axis of Awesome finally refers to a comedy band that put that to the test on youtube.



Quite interesting... especially as I'm just getting back into music.  And also quite hilarious.  And ... awesome.

Too bad their other work (on YouTube) is not nearly as brilliant as this piece of them.
