Default Your favorite 3 chord songs

I'm trying to build up my repertoire of easy 3 or maybe 4 chord songs, stuff that I can add to my set lists just so I don't play the same stuff all the time. What is your favorite easy rocker that you'll admit to?

Blues music is traditionally only about 3 chords (due to the nature of the 12 bar blues, although they mix it up every now and again)

Or anything by Chuck Berry

But to be fair, most pop songs are about 4 chords or so.

As evidenced by this montage:



As long as you stick away from prog, you should be fine

Yeah, it is. I play it with G, C and D... easiest chords in the book.

The intro is played with a different G, C and D further down the fretboard of the guitar
