While the phrase "three chords and the truth" was first coined by Nashville songwriter Harlan Howard (to describe ''country'' music), the real TropeNamer is a verse added by U2 to their cover of BobDylan's "All Along the Watchtower" on ''Music/RattleAndHum'', absent in both the original and the famous JimiHendrix version.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{JBO}} have a song named "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTwg-nh3En0 Drei Akkorde]]" (three chords). Three guesses what it's about and the first two don't count.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Vinyl}}'' set in the music business of the 70s and partly a chronicle of the birth of Punk Music, demonstrates this in the 8th episode of Season 1. Lester Grimes, former bluesman turned manager to the proto-punk Nasty Bits demonstrates the power of E, A, B and how it forms the skeleton for a nearly infinite variety of popular music, from blues, to classic rock, to bubblegum pop.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/TracyChapman made a tremendous splash in the UsefulNotes/TheEighties with her acclaimed hit song, "Fast Car," a soulful and simple folk song amid all the glossy competitors of that time.

* EntertainmentForTheBraindead recorded her ''Raw Timber'' EP in the middle of a forest, with just a guitar. Interestedly, the first song from the EP "A String", is about one of the strings breaking on her guitar, and she complains that five strings is not enough.

*** That was supposedly how the Sex Pistols' manager Malcolm McLaren spun it, in order to play up the tensions for media publicity. Matlock and Johnny Rotten were increasingly falling out with each other, and Matlock eventually quit to join The Rich Kids.
