One of the things that makes this song memorable is the guitar tone. It's in your face, aggressive, kind of reckless, and fun. Use some distortion, but not too much. Only a little bit of reverb, so you'll have plenty of attack. It's straight-ahead rock, but the sound should be more of an amp overdrive than heavy metal. Don't use too much distortion because it will muddy up that slappy sound that makes it so distinct. Heavy distortion doesn't always make a song rock, and this song is a great example.
