There are no versions with lyrics, chords, or even in song context (references to sections),
so I'm attempting to provide that, while also adding a fuller version that sounds great if
playing solo on acoustic. The real version is played mostly on only the bottom 2 strings
(E and A). That sounds awesome, but this is an alternative style that I've started using
because it sounds the same, but way better when playing without the bass, drums, electric
effects, and smoking hot chick (err...gay-sounding dude) singing it. It is also hopefully a 
more knowledgable version where after seeing the root chords, you can decide whether to
add/remove the 5ths and 7ths yourself.

Main Riffs:

Riff 1 is the same with a different F#m/E at start of 2nd measure. 
The Am/E (Am) is the quick slide or bend to the A note (if playing only 2 strings) or shown
here as a slide to Am.

The whole premise for this tab is to present fuller chords. So, I am automatically adding 1
more note (than in the actual song or other tabs), usually on th G string, and showing an
option to go even fuller (add B and G-string chords for even more tone). To be clear on
this, the current tabs show you playing the song mostly with 1 finger on the A string.
(Shake head that you grasp concept.) Here I present 2 fingers - mostly A and G strings
(accompanied by muted D string and the open E string). If you like that, mix in 3 fingers
(example, on B string for G#m/E). The optional notes make the tabs look confusing, but keep
the ideal of "more-finger chords" in mind.

* below = Double-time (repeat). Messes up the formatting to try to squish another chord in.
Basically, all chords shown are downstrokes on 8 counts/measure, where there's an astericks
below fit in a quick follow-up upstroke (usually only hitting the E and A strings). At the
end of Riffs 1a-c, do this on the last 0-11 (or use 0-x) on E and A strings to make the record
skipping sound, before connecting to a similar pass.

That's not a chick singing this song. Watch the video. You are now officially gay.

I didn't believe the video, or want to believe it. But found their Letterman performance on line. Okay, I correct my statement to "unless you have...and a really gay sounding singer." (PS, I'll still listen imagining Nikki, the bassist, is singing though.) I will update my text if anyone has issues with the actual tabs/chords.

Sorry if I'm being picky, but that Abm should actually be G#m. Technically it's the same, but it helps understand the context (as in the E major scale). Actually, I think that chord is actually E major, seeing as it has no fifth (and if it did, it would more likely be an Emaj7).
