Because it’s Friday: Four chords, and the truth

This one’s for the musicians out there. (By the way, in my purely anecdotal experience, musical aptitude appears to have a higher-then-expected representation amongst stats folks. I however am the exception that proves the rule, as anyone who’s suffered through my Rock Band vocals can attest. But I digress.) What do the chords C#minor, A, E and B have in common? Quite a lot, as it turns out. Australian comedy group Axis of Awesome explain. (Some language NSFW.)
