                This is for the most recent release of the song (there have been three i think-Slow 
one early on, one from the US star static and the best (Imo) from the UK star static, 
whcih opens with a G chord getting from quiet to loud... The chords should work for 
all of them though, just dont know ahout the rest of the tab! This is the closest and 
most detailed tab of the (great) song i've seen on the net... even if i do say so 
myself! Well i was trying to learn it for my band and i was annoyed cos i couldnt find 
any  good tabs on the net so i decided to do it myself! Every verse is played in stoccato 
format (short bursts) except the outro chorus...
