Great Tab, killer song too, especially the live version, there's only one part of the tab that I noticed was incorrect, in the one part of the verse if you listen closely there is another chord in there, a C# instead of playing G# twice:

|--------------------------|
|-------------------------o|
|-------10-----------------|
|---7-9-10-10-12-12-12-12--|
|---7-9--8-10-12-12-12-12-o|
|-0-5-7-----8-10-10-10-10--|

Other than that that though perfect tab, thanks!

Actually on closer listening and looking at the powertab version of this song, I'm not sure, but it does sound like there is another chord when I listen to the song

I think the part discussed above goes like this:

|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|---------1010-55-77-|
|---77-99-1010-55-77-|
|---77-99-8-8--33-55-|
|-0-55-77------------|

It seems to have 5 different power chords. That's what I hear anyway...
