The unthinking majority
This is my first tab and it was done by ear so id say its accurate for a first time
(the intro and tuning are right though the harmonics in EADGBE would be on the 5th fret 
the B string which is pretty
difficult to play a tap harmonic on for the intro)

Tuning
C G C F A D (both guitars)

Tablature Legend
----------------
 S   - shift slide
  - natural harmonic
n(n) - tapped harmonic
 T   - tap
 PM  - palm muting

Execute them kindly for me.
Take them by their filthy nostrils
Put them up in doggy hostels.

Execute real democracy.

I think it's in Drop C since some of the songs on Elect the Dead are definately in Drop C, like Beethoven's C***, and I never seen his band's guitarist switch tunings during live concerts. Anyhow, I think this way is easier to play, and more convienient when playing other Elect the Dead songs or early System songs.
