THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

Reasons that should make you believe its right:
1) I looked it over and played with it about 10 times
2) I love this song
3) Look at the detail!
4) I don't like hate mail.

Key:
^ — hit or pull off
* — hold on note

Comments:
The song really isn't this long, but there are a few small variations
which I tabbed out to make it clear.
Listen to the song with your bass way up, it's easy to hear the changes.

INTRO:
The song starts with a wicked drum intro
(except for the part where he times his bass drum beat badly —
I can't believe they recorded it)
Then it starts off with a distortion fading guitar with the bass

1st time:
G:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
D:——0000—2222—4444—5555—7777—55^7^5——4444—22^4^2————
A:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
E:——————————————————————————————————————————————————

2nd time: — This is not the same thing, you'll hear the change
(^ means hit on the note, or pull off, whichever, you'll see)
G:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
D:——0000—2222—4444—5555—7777—55^7^5——44^55—22^4^2———
A:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
E:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
3rd time (repeated twice) — Yes this is different, and its noticeably
different.
G:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
D:——0000—2222—4444—5555—7777—55^7^5——44^5—222^4^2———
A:——————————————————————————————————————————————————
E:——————————————————————————————————————————————————

Then it stops for Scott (the old drummer) to
do a roll on one of the cymbals (crash?)
Bass does:
(* means hold on the note)
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:—0*———————————————————0*———————————————————
A:———————————————————————————————————————————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

Then the bass does this twice:
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:——55555555—————————————————————————————————
A:———————————33333333—55555555—33333333——————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

Then back to another variation of the first riff, only quicker:
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:—00—22—44—55—77—55—4^5^4—2^4^2—————————————
A:———————————————————————————————————————————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

And then finally, the last part of the intro
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:—00—22—44—55—77777777——————————————————————
A:———————————————————————————————————————————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

As for the actual song (even though the intro is way cooler):

Mark (bass) does this 4 times during the verse
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:——55555555—————————————————————————————————
A:———————————33333333—55555555—33333333——————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

Then theres another roll on the cymbals which leads into the chorus
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:—0*———————————————————0*———————————————————
A:———————————————————————————————————————————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

Ok that's like the hard part of the song,
then you just do this the rest of the way:
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:——5555—————————————————————————————————————
A:———————3333—5555—3333——————————————————————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

EXCEPT! Right before Mark sings the chorus for the last time
(During the end of the guitar solo)
Go back to this:
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:——55555555—————————————————————————————————
A:———————————33333333—55555555—33333333——————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

Then back to the regular riff, and end the song
G:———————————————————————————————————————————
D:——5555—————————————————————————————————————
A:———————3333—5555—3333——————————————————————
E:———————————————————————————————————————————

Just remember to end on
D:——0*———————————————————————————————————————
