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:--------------------------------------------------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/blink_182/reebok_commercial_btab.html ]
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*---------------------------------------
