* [[Music/KanyeWest Kanye West's]] [[TheNewTens 2010]]"Runaway" is unique and haunting for [[EpicRocking nine minutes]]. It consists of basically four chords (almost exclusively dyads mind you -- so basically not much more than ten notes/two per chord) on the piano): E Maj; D#dim/E; C#min A Maj.

** Music/{{KISS}} followed the formula like glue.In fact much of their stage show was to cover up the fact that they didn't even play their three chords ''well'' ([[ItGetsBetter they got better]]).

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.

** Not to mention the drumming - the rhythm equivalent of three chords. 4/4, anybody?

* 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.

* ''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.

* 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.
