Nope, it's a #4. These things matter.

Right, I think I see where I've been mistaken on the idea of resolution; it's not necessarily the chord you finish/start on as much as it is the chord the progression is most 'comfortable' on? Or am I still way off?

Am I to take the power chords as their root notes (ignore the fifths/take them as accidentals) and view it as C major?

I listened to it. where is the progression going after that? Or does it just loop for a bit before moving on to another section?.

Really any word like "comfortable" or "safe" or "good" should never be used to describe resolution within a key. An unresolved note or chord could be any of those things as well.

You should definitely study some functional harmony. musictheory.net has some great lessons on this kind of thing. And please don't take that advice as me avoiding the question. I could go into it, but I would probably end up typing for at least an hour. Run through some of those lessons and learn some music, and try to figure out how the theory is applied in that music.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

^ Dm. It resolves to Dm. Your key is Dm. The scale is Dm.
