When you listen to the radio for a while, you start to realize that a lot of songs sound the same.

That’s true, at least within a given genre of music. There are really only so many ways to construct a rock song. That’s why they say you really only need to know how to play four chords to make a decent rock record.

Now, one clever Imgur user, by the name of John Atkinson, has put together an infographic that breaks down the anatomy of songs within a number of genres, including rock, pop, country and the blues.

Check out the graphic and see if you don’t agree.
