It is no secret that pop music has always relied on formula to manufacture success. The 4 chord structure behind the vast majority of pop hits is testament to that. You can literally take the same 4 chords, repeat them ad nauseam and you will be able to play nearly every great pop song ever recorded. The Axis of Awesome are an Australian comedy trio who have proven the theory. Jordan Raskopoulos, a comedian, Benny Davis, a classically trained musician and Lee Naimo, an Iron Chef enthusiast, came together to form the group in 2006. Since that time they’ve been wowing audiences across the world with with their mixture of quirky original songs, catchy pop-parodies and hilarious banter. Brilliant!
