Okay, here's the tab for "5150".  This song is a pain in the ass for two
reasons: 1)it's tuned to "dropped-D" 1/2 step down; and 2)there are more
doublestops than mere humans (like me) can handle.  The little string names
on the side of the tab lines SHOULD have a flat next to each of them 'cause
of the 1/2 step down deal, but it's easier just to tune to dropped-D unless
you plan to jam to the CD or something.

Here's the signature riff of the song (play it FAST!):
E-|-----------------|-----------------|-4---------------|---------4---------|

Repeat 3x; then...

Okay, this next part you repeat twice.  One time with the first ending
that I've tabbed out (marked between the 1>>>> and <<<<1), and again but
replacing the first ending with the second (2>>>> to <<<<2).  This is also
the part played behind the chorus ("Always one more; you're never
satisfied..."):

This next bit is played behind the verses.  It's basically just crunching
out a D power chord with the low D thrown in.  Eddie does a little bit of
extra stuff (which I tabbed out here) but you really don't need it unless
you're really anal and want to be exact...

Here's what I guess you'd call the "pre-chorus" ("Still we try; win or lose;
take the highs; with the blues..."). Play it twice through, only the second
time, leave out the first measure (A-2-3-2-3-2-3/5). Then rake your pick
down the low strings before you go into the next riff.

G-|-2------2-2-----||
D-|-0------0-0-----||

D-|----5-5-----5-5-||


This next part is (in my opinion) the coolest riff in the song.  This is
just a fill-in between the pre-chorus (above) and the chorus (WAY above).
Play this one time through then go to the chorus riff (tabbed above).
