Comments:  This song is cool.  I usually overlook this song because the other songs on the album are so cool, but I've been really listening to it lately, and it's riffery structure is really cool.  Anyway, the tab came out awesome IMO, and if you spot a mistake, don't be afraid to point it out to me, because I'm not going to bite you.  Well, not unless you look like Evander Holyfield.  Wait, that's Mike Tyson.  Okay, yeah, that's right, I'm not going to bite you.  Later, Hipsters and Peacemuffins.
