                as covered by Green Day

This starts in the key of F# minor, and I've got as much information here as
possible. The only thing missing is that darn bass solo in the solo breaks.

F# E F# E x2

begin Verse:
F# (stop)                  F#                     E    
Well, people try to put us down. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# (stop)                   F#              E
Just because we get around. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# (stop)                     F#                     E
The things they do look awful cold. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# (stop)                       F#              E
I hope I die before I get old. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# E F# E x2
My generation.

Verse 2 (same chords):

Why don't you all just fade away? (Talkin' bout my generation.)
And don't try to dig what we all say. (Talkin' bout my generation.)
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation. (Talkin' bout my generation.)
I'm just talkin' bout my generation. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

Chorus

Bridge:

F# E F# E F# (stop)
Guitar:

E: |-----------------------------|
B: |----7-7----7-7---------------|
G: |-/6-----/6-----4-4h6p4-------|
D: |-----------------------4-7~~-|
A: |-----------------------------|
E: |-----------------------------|

F# E F# E F# (stop)
Bass solo...

F# E F# E F# (stop)
Drum solo

F# E F# E F# (stop)
*crash* Man, you can f**k that sh*t!

F# E F# E x2

Repeat Verse 2 with key change G#, F#, G# with same lyrics.

Chorus with chords G#, F#, G#.

Then key change to Bb (chords: Bb, G#) over solo:

E: |--------------------------|
B: |-4------4------4------4---|
G: |-6b8----6b8----6b8----6b8-|
then you just use the Bb minor pentatonic scale...Billie goes to fast for
me to tab out the entire solo, but there are a could main themes, the above
bend being one, and

E: |-----6-9b-9b-9b-|
B: |-6-9------------|
G: |----------------|

being another. The solo however, is only in Bb minor pent. at the 6th fret
position:
    6th  7   8   9
E: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
B: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
G: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
D: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
A: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
E: |-x-|---|---|-x-|

Just go wild; do a lot of pulling, hammering and bending.

Then end in a glorious haze of feedback and spasticness...or just kinda
fizzle out like on the record.
