it doesn't really matter if it's a cover because it's still a cool song. the only thing that pissed me of was when that guy destroyied
that beautiful Gibson LesPaul,but other than that i see nothing wrong with the song.

Hey dood,Look carefully at your 2nd solo man.How can Guitar 2 play the main riff,while it's playing the solo as well.
