Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is based on the performance Amanda and Brian did for Occupy Melbourne, so I'd recommend watching that if 
you want to see the best strumming pattern. I double checked the sheet music to be sure of my chords, they are 
correct, although I simplified them a little. 

G D Am C
G D Am C

    G            D
The record goes
     Am           C
From blue to gold
   G              D        Am      
So thank you for all your help
  G              D
I know you want
   Am               C
To jump around
    G          D          Am     
But try to contain yourself

           C                G               D
You always struck me as the type to take it lightly
               C             G                  D
But now you're gonna have to shut your mouth and fight me

Oh

Am             C
Backstabber, backstabber...

       G            D
You're all alone
       Am           C
You're all over
    G        D     Am      C
The popular magazines
     G              D
Will never care
     Am               C
What do you care
       G        D         Am      C
You're down with the Japanese

                  C                  G         D
But you've got no right to sit there saying I abuse it
              C                    G                   D
When you only sleep with girls who say they like your music


*Palm mute

Am                      C           
Backstabber, backstabber, backstabber, backstabber
Am                      C
Backstabber, backstabber, backstabber, backstabber


*Back to full strums

G            D         
Backstabber, hope grabber
Am            C
Greedy little fit haver
G       D        Am        C
God I feel for you, fool
G               D 
You hit lover, off-brusher
Am          C
Jaded bitter joy crusher
G           D         Am        C
Failure has made you so cruel

You

G D Am C
G D Am C

G D Am C
G D Am C

Am            C
Rotten to the core
Am            C
Rotten to the core


*Here, switch to palm-muted power chords, even on an acoustic guitar.

B               G
Rotten like a crackwhore
B               G
Begging out the backdoor
C                    G#
Show us what you're good for
C                    G#
Post it on the noise board
C#                A
Come on join the bloodsport
C#               A
Show us some support still
C#               A
Working at the drugstore
C        A
Is it because you're

A FU-CKING


*The rest is half a step up, so either shove a capo on the first fret and play as normal, or play barre chords 
as written here:

G#            D#         
Backstabber, hope grabber
Bbm           C#
Greedy little fit haver
G#     D#      Bbm        C#
God I feel for you, fool
G#               D# 
You shit lover, off-brusher
Bbm           C#
Jaded bitter joy crusher
G#           D#         Bbm        C#
Failure has made you so cruel


         Bbm             C#
So don't tell me what to write
          Bbm               C#
And don't tell me that I'm wrong
          Bbm             C#          Bbm              C#      
And don't tell me not to reference my songs within my songs


Oh, oh, oh

G#           D#     Bbm     C#
You backstabber
    G#         D#     Bbm      C#
You backstabber
G#           D#
Backstabber, hope grabber
Bbm            C#
Greedy fucking bitch lover
G#           
Backstabber
D#       Bbm        C#
Oh, Oh

G# D# Bbm C#
G# D# Bbm C#
G# D# Bbm C#
G# D# Bbm C#

Finish on a high E chord, for the album ending, or a G if you want a perfect cadence.
