I'm compiling a list of famous chords for my students as well as for a short article. You know, stuff like the HENDRIX CHORD (aka, the "Purple Haze" chord, the dom7#9), the BEATLES CHORD (from the song "Hard Day's Night"), the PRINCE CHORD (the 11th position E9 sometimes referred to as the "Kiss" Chord since it's from that song), and that sort of thing.
Just wondering if anyone can provide additional famous chords. I'm not sure the Police's use of the add9 counts, though it did figure prominently in several of their songs, though the Steely Dan "Mu Major" probably does (since they gave it a cool name - hahaha!).
So anyway, list your favorites (remember, they have to be somewhat known for the distinct chord itself, not just because you like a song) here!
