Hey, how's it goin.  I'm a huge Minutemen fan and there isn't enough of 
tab of them on the net.  This is a great song off of the Double Nickels
On The Dime CD, and you can also find it on Ballot Result.  My band did
a cover of it on our demo tape.

The intro is the only tough part...

I'm not even going to try to indicate the strumming, it's really fast.  You
can get it by listening to the recording.  Here are the chords:
      E?     and    C?

Just strum them and get the clicks in.  The name of the chords is something 
like E7#9 or something, but people I know usually just call it "that Hendrix
chord."  That's the verse part, and the chorus is just drums.  

C?  Hey mister, don't look down on me
E?  For what I believe (etc.)

It goes intro-verse-chorus-solo (over verse)-verse-chorus

the outro is just E- --0000000------

I just use the E-Pentatonic scale on the twelth fret for the solo...
I'm sure d would approve

Here's the Bass

For the intro, just stand there and look cool.  When the guitarist starts
slamming on E?, the second bar come in with G---/9 and hold it.
Then go into
  C?                              E?

I think it varies a little bit, but Watt is real hard to tab.  Enjoy, and
e-mail me with some more Minutemen, DK, or Living Colour tab if ya get any.
