I like Riad a lot more than others. Definitely should have kept the bucket solo.  I think it was an amazing display of karma that the tinkering on this particular track got them sued…how much ambient noise do you need? Outside of the blatant ripoff, just oblivious to how people consume music…not a song worthy of (plagiarized) intro nonsense.

The drums and bass on the demo are wicked. I prefer the demo by far. Modern day Immigrant Song.

Don't care for it. The "all my salvation" part is repetitive and grating. Guitars are definitely better on the demo.

Riad instrumental is a monster.

Under-appreciated but I don’t like how it sounds.

Josh’s drums are killer and so is Tommy’s bass but I don’t know. Somethings off.

The 2001 performances had the goods. Felt more organic.

Incomprehensible lyrics for a supposedly important song.

Their most punk songs by far. Like a modern Garden of Eden.

I always feel the vocal is under appreciated in this song. Bust out a version in the shower and you'll see what I mean - it's hard to sing right...and it's actually kinda cool as it's own thing.

I love the bits where the harmony vocals kick in on the "All my salvation/All my frustrations/Caught up in lies" bit. Feels very Queen.

I actually really dig this song.

The two best revelations in this series is that we all pretty much agree Ron is not to blame for the re-recording nightmare but Axl and Caram. The other is that we all now know monkey sings Riad in the shower. 16

Hopefully on 7/31 they play the new Hardschool so we can have a Wtf happened to Hardschool thread. I wonder how many will prefer the demo's instrumental to the Slash version.

What little we’ve heard of Hardschool, Slash has improved it immensely, Duff too.
