in 1981. The title song blew me away; it was about youthful rebellion.
I've always considered this song severely underrated. It's a Journey
song that kicks butt.
Anyway, this is a long song, and has a lot of changes, but its
a good cover tune to know.  

Notation: p.m. = palm mute ^ = 1 1/2 step bend
        > = accent     * = half step bend
       ~~~  = vibrato bar + = whole step bend
       <5> = natural harmonic {4} = pinch harmonic
        v = whole step bend before picking, then release

  Intro.
