    you got it deynn. it is the funniest. i think all kinds of bands went on to re-make that song too. korn even did a remake of it. the bass part is awesome for that song. you need a low b, but it is an effective, easy song to play.

    Everybody tells me the way I got to live
    But I don't listen to them
    Cause my head is like a sieve

    The basketball coach threw me off the team
    For wearing high heeled sneakers
    And acting like a queen


    Man, they just don't write lyrics like that any more!!!

    i meant to say you need a low A, whether you tune your E string down(this sounds crazy, but cool) or have a fiver and tune your B down. The tab that i got was on basstabarchive and under korn, for earache my eye.

    oh, and the korn cd is follow the leader. it is on the very end. you have to wait about 12 of **** to get to it, but it's worth it. i wouldn't suggest buying the cd though. just steal it from somebody.

  10. Heck, you can steal it from Korn themselves by getting it from Napster! :D
  11. If memory serves, I think Cheech and Chong borrowed that song from a first wave punk band. I want to say The Dickies or the Dead Boys, but I can't remember right now. If you look, you can probably find out.
  12. did you notice what Chong was the playing the drums with? A pair of wooden dildos.

    actually the first i ever heard that song was a cover by Scatterbrain. its actually very well done and fun. if anyonoe remembers them or the album it was from alot of their stuff was interesting and fun, like bach and mozart remakes with dueling guitars and bass melodies. and who can forget the fun song Down With the Ship?

    cant remember the album name, something liek Here Comes Trouble.

  15. best line in the movie if you watch it again
    "Hey man i didn't know your name was Alex?"

    nice sig dude- rancid rules! you want a good bassline? try journey to the east coast (or whatever) off of "And out come the wolves". The beginning part is fun to play.
