Ахах, это реально круто! Магическим образом заглядываешь в кварто-квинтовый сферы пытаясь найти священный математико-музыкальный грааль, а здесь на для тебя, всё попросту и наглядно =)

Has RUSH or QUEEN ever used these chords?🤔
Calvin Schwa (8 days ago)
I googled it and was pretty quickly able to find for Queen that I'm In Love With My Car uses the same 4 chords for the chorus, just in a different pattern (which btw happens with other songs too); some of their other songs had even simpler patterns. As for Rush, you'll have a harder time there since they're so self-consciously prog, but apparently Closer to the Heart has only 3 chords outside of the intro. (Again, all this only on a cursory google.) None of that detracts from either bands' achievements, though -- I love them both. Simple structures can be just as amazing as more complicated ones in the right hands.

Liz Epps (16 days ago)
In defense of MGMT, "Kids" was kinda a parody of modern pop songs (along with Electic feel and whatever the third song is)

I Like how this got them a hit and it was a four cord song

Hundreds of hit songs have only 2 or 3 chords. It's not like 4 is a super small number of chords when it comes to pop music. https://www.guitarplayerbox.com/three/chord/guitar/songs/
