The verse features some powerhouse rhythm playing. The first chord establishes some dissonance, and catches your ear right off the top: an A5add#4 chord. This gives a lydian sound that is associated with the sharp 4 note (D# in the case of an A chord). You'll hear the lydian sound throughout this tune. Also note the use of tremolo effect on this opening chord only.

The band kicks in with a killer groove, and the guitar drives along with some funky 16th note strums and mutes played with a punk attitude.

Note the cool tricks inserted in the holes of the F# barre chord; some low E string harmonics, and adding in the open high B and E strings for extra dissonance!
