57 Songs That Sound The Same

Chicago "25 or 6 to 4" (1970)


Green Day "Brain Stew" (1996)

Where They Sound The Same: The chord progression.

Green Day has had a long, successful career, and "Brain Stew" will be remembered by flocks of teenagers who got a guitar in the late '90s and learned this as one of their first lessons. It's simple, easy to play, and without knowing it, those kids were also learning Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4," released back in 1970. Just change up the timing a little and now you know how to play two songs on the guitar.
