I love this song, and this album, go easy on me, this is my first tab I've ever wrote.
may be bad, but this is how I play it, and it sounds fine to me. I tabbed it 100% by
not a very hard song to play, there is no solo, however timing could be a little tricky 
there's LOTS of palm-muting.

They play in D standard, DGCFAd, so just change up the bar chords like this:

d: [-----------]
A: [-----------]
F: [-----------]
C: [2-3-2-2-9-2]
G: [2-3-2-2-9-2]
D: [0-1-0-0-7-0]
