Chord Whore refers to any band that only strum chords in their songs. Most usually, they play the same chords over and over again. This term is often said of bands such as nickelback. The lyrics are simplistic and mentally handicapped just like everything else related to the band. Simplistic and minimalistic are often confused. Minimalistic has reason behind it. Simplistic, in music, is a lack of talent.
