I noticed that the other tabs make this song way more complicated to play than it really
is. It's a very simple, yet awesome song. Now, this is the first tab I've written, but
when I listen and play, I can't hear any differences in the way I play it and the way
Jack plays it. I do have a few other things I throw in when I play it, but I'll just
give you the meat and potatoes of the song. Then, you can touch it up with what you
feel sounds right, you know? Oh, I gave the chords (all power-chords) right where they
should be played with the lyrics, but you gotta figure out the strumming pattern to what
you think sounds good...

That's it!

As you may or may not have noticed, I took alot of care in making this as precise as
possible. All you need is the strum pattern and your set. 
I want to know what you think about it!
