    General CommentHmmm what to say? I love this song. So much emotion put into it, yet simplistic in nature...the meaning is kinda self-explanatory.

    General CommentYeah, this song is basically written because Daniel Johns really liked Minor Threat, and he wanted to write a short punk-ish song like them...so he did, and here it is!

    General CommentI like this song. I like the guitar, the structure, the screaming, the way he repeats one line in the end. However, I liked all that much more in tourettes by Nirvana. It is a complete rip-off. Listen to the two songs back to back, and you will see how close they are to each other. I still like this song, but it IS a rip-off.

    General Commentwell
    i read that they liked nirvana, but they never intended on sounding like them. they were never like, huge fans.
    so how they ended up "ripping-off" nirvana, i do not know.
