I think the entirety of Kasabian's first album were one-chord songs. Not great songs mind. The producer added bits in-between the songs to distract you - which is about the only way the album remains listenable.

Papa Was A Rolling Stone gets my vote. Twelve minutes on Bbm flies past.

Does Eno’s “Discreet Music” count as a song?
