Why just jazz songs?

Pink Floyd - Money is one of the most popular 7/4 songs. Though I don't see why a jazz band couldn't play that song too.

Why the intro sounds so dissonant is because the bass and guitar play notes that don't really sound "good" together. I wouldn't put the intro in any key. I would say the verse is i-ii-iv-V in F#m.

"are there any consequences of not having a bassist?"

Yes - sounding like crap.

If you can't find a bassist, some of the guitarists could take the bassist's role. Remember that a guitar octave...

Can you tab out the chords? The voicing you use has a lot to do with how it sounds like. And by hearing the sound we can tell what it's called.

Yeah, but if you just use triplet feel, 4/4 is more simple, so that two 8th notes are actually 4th triplet note + 8th triplet note.

It could be an older version. There was a version of TNT115 that was 150 watts. But yeah, I've never seen a 300 watt version. And as FatalGear41 said, it could be something else.

You usually use 4/4 with triplets in faster songs and 12/8 in slower songs. 6/8 is 2/4 with triplets (it has two strong beats in a bar just like 2/4).
