         Bad Religion-Past Is Dead
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jaytee805
E-mail: jaytee805@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Song starts with a main intro part like this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------5-------------------------5------------------------|
A|-----7------8-7---7------7-5---7------8-7---7------7-5---------------------|
E|---5---5--8-----5---5-8------5---5--8-----5---5-8--------------------------|

Play the above part 3 times and then go to this once:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------0---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------0-----------------------------------------------------|
D|---------0-3--2----2-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----0h2--------0----------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the totally awesome intro solo bursts in out of nowhere:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------5-5-5-|
B|---5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5--5-------------------------------------------5-5-5--|
G|---7^9-------7^9--------7^9^7-5---5----------------------5---5h7^9---------|
D|---------------------------------7----------------5---5h7---7--------------|
A|--------------------------------------------3-5/7---5----------------------|
E|--------------------------------------5-3-5--------------------------------|

e|--------5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5--------------------------------|
B|--------5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5--------------------------------|
G|---7^9--------7^9-------7^9-------7^9--------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------17-17-17--------17-17-17--------17-17-17-------------------------|
B|----------17-17-17--------17-17-17--------17-17-17-------------------------|
G|---/19^21---------/19^21----------/19^21----------19^21\-------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Next comes the verse (also played behind the solo):
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-101010109-9-9-9---------|
D|---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-101010109-9-9-9---------|
A|---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-8-8-8-8-7-7-7-7---------|
E|---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------------------------------------------|

Play that part twice, then go to the pre-chorus:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------10-9---------------------------10-9-----------------------------|
D|---7-x-x-x-10-9--7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-7-x-x-x--10-9-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-------------|
A|---7-x-x-x--8-7--7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-7-x-x-x--8--7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-------------|
E|---5-x-x-x-------5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-5-x-x-x-------5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-------------|

Then hit the chorus, which goes like this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------5-5-------------5-5-------------5-5---------------------------------|
D|---3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-6-6---------------------|
A|---3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-6-6---------------------|
E|---1-1-----3-3-3-3-1-1-----3-3-3-3-1-1-----3-3-3-3-4-4---------------------|

Now come to the post-chorus part:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------5-109---------5-109---------5-109-------------------------------|
D|---7-7-7-7-5-109-7-7-7-7-5-109-7-7-7-7-5-109-7-----------------------------|
A|---7-7-7-7-3-8-7-7-7-7-7-3-8-7-7-7-7-7-3-8-7-7------\----------------------|
E|---5-5-5-5-------5-5-5-5-------5-5-5-5-------5------\----------------------|

Then it comes to the verse, which you play twice.
Then play the pre-chorus once, and come into the chorus exactly the way it is played the 
first time.
Then it plays the muted post-chorus part (which is played all the way through), which, 
after having been played one and a half times, is followed by a repeatedly strummed G 
power chord.
Then comes the solo (The chords behind which are just the chorus pattern of F-C-G-G 
played four times):
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------8-10^12^10-10^12^10-8-10-8---|
G|-------------------------4/5\4-----------7-9-------------------------------|
D|---3-3-3-2----------3-2-----------5-7/9------------------------------------|
A|-----------3-------------------/7------------------------------------------|
E|-------------3---1---------------------------------------------------------|

e|---13-13-13-13-12----13/15-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------13------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After the solo, it goes back to the chorus part, which is followed by the pre-chorus 
played three-fourths of one times, and then the A goes quickly to a 2-strum G and ends on 
the A.
