Artist: Green Day
Album: Simpsons Single
Song: The Simpsons Theme
Runtime: 1:23

Update: September 23rd 2007: Fixed the fretting that EVERYONE was complaining about. I 
don't see the point, but it's annoying that I get comments with everyone saying the same
thing. This means that instead of 10th fret on the B string, it's 5th fret on the E string.

Right, so Green Day helped out Matt Groening by rewriting a rock version of his theme.
They’re also gonna show up in the movie and I believe drown. 

This song came out on the 23rd of July so it’s sort of late, but I hope you’ll forgive.
The chords that are played in the background are on top and they’re all power chords C5,
B5, E5.

 C5                          (x2) B5                        (x2)

Behringerboy:

I dont know what you mean with easier ways to play it. The part at 1:00 is sorta off and I just submitted a correction. Otherwise, I dont think ive done a half bad job.
