It's very interesting how ALL THOSE songs have the same few chords. I wouldn't say it's a bad thing when it makes sense musically (since some chords played together sound weird). BUt it does provide an insight into how the brain perceives music.

Think about it. What would happen if the first caveman guitarist went with something like II,IV,VII, and that was the standard?
