 (note: play chorus twice the 2nd and 3rd times you go through, so you can 
 fit in the 
 "Hello Timebomb, I'm Ready to go off.." part.) 

 Verse 2 (riff 1 again) 
 C C D D D A A F F F 
 e|-----------------|------------------|-------------------|---------------------| 
 B|-----------------|------------------|-------------------|---------------------| 
 G|---------5--5-/7-|7--7--------------|-------------------|-------------------o-| 
 D|---------5--5-/7-|7--7--------------|-----------7--7-\3-|3--3---------------o-| 
 A|---------3--3-/5-|5--5--------------|-----------7--7-\3-|3--3-----------------| 
 E|-----------------|------------------|-------------5--5-\1-|1--1-----------------| 
 Guitar plays this first time after chorus, then for the verse its just bass 
 again 

 e|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 B|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-----| 
 G|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 D|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 A|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 E|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 During verse 2, one guitar plays this palm muted, over and over again, until 
 Matt 
 sings "Push and push and push 'till it hurts, then it plays that oh so 
 famous main riff for the rest of the verse, while guitar 2 throws in 
 some nifty slide sounds. 

 Then, when he sings "Pull and pull an pull 'till it hurts", you jump back to 
 the Pre-chorus and chorus. Then.. 

 Bridge 
 e|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 B|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 G|--7-7------------|------------------|-----7-7-------------|------5-5-5---------5-o| 
 D|--7-7---8---7---3|----5-5-5-------5-|--7-7---8---7---3-|----5-5-5---------5-o| 
 A|--5-5---8---7---3|----5-5-5-------5-|--5-5---8---7---3-|----3-3-3---------3--| 
 E|---------6---5---1|----3-3-3-------3-|---------6---5---1-|----3-3-3---------3--| 
 repeat three times, amongst guitar 2's feedback and phaser noises, then back 
 to the riff 1 again with guitar once, then just bass. 

 Verse 3 (played overtop of riff 1, same notes as lyrics) 
 e|-----------------|------------------| 
 B|-----8---8--6--8-|-/10--------------| 
 G|-----------------|------------------| 
 D|-----------------|------------------| 
 A|-----------------|------------------| 
 E|-----------------|------------------| 
 play three times, then join with bass in playing 2nd half of riff 1 
 then continues to play with bass, as one guitar does this dissonant little 
 riff: 

 e|-----------------|-------------------| 
 B|--6---6---6---6--|--6---6---6---6----| 
 G|----9---9---9---9|----9---9---9---9-o| 
 D|-----------------|------------------o| 
 A|-----------------|-------------------| 
 E|-----------------|-------------------| 

 And when Matt sings "Solid Gold" the 2nd time, change it to 
 e|-----------------|-------------------| 
 B|----8---8---8---8--|--8---8---8---8----| 
 G|----9---9---9---9|----9---9---9---9--| 
 D|-----------------|-------------------| 
 A|-----------------|-------------------| 
 E|-----------------|-------------------| 
 Do this while playing the prechorus. 
 Then onto the Chorus, twice, and the 2nd time through, no words, but guitar 
 2 plays this: 
 e|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 B|-7-6-7----7-6-7---|-7-6-7----7-6-7----|-7-6-7---7-6-7----|-9-8-9---9-8-9-------| 
 G|--------6-------6-|--------6--------6--|--------6--------6--|-------6-------6----o| 
 D|-----------------|------------------|------------------|--------------------o| 
 A|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 E|-----------------|------------------|------------------|---------------------| 
 reapeat this one twice, then back to the main riff ONCE, and then you're done.

the tab itself looks fine... but where's the solo?

no worries... it must have been impossible to tab that.

It's tuned to half a step down as well, I don't think that's said on the tab.
