Yeh. Why would you want to limit yourself to just one type of chord.
Whatever fits the song.

For example back when I was in an alt rock band, we had a song that actually that had a chord "change" which was just going from the standard chord (a D) to the power chord...because it fit the structure and feel of the song.
