*Art plays this F, which often turns up in ska influenced music (which 
Everclear is not). it's basically just a part of a full F bar :-)

CHORUS

       G                F               C               Am      G

        F

then

POST-CHORUS

||o              |              o|| 
||o              |              o|| (repeated a couple-a-times)

then play the post-chorus riff twice, first muted then un-muted

TO CHORUS (w/ no post chorus)

BRIDGE (there's quite a few guitars, some are playing open chords like in the 
intro & chorus, and then there's some to note power chords then some full 
bars) i'm just going to write the three note power chords)

      C                    C
||o              |              o||

FULL BARS
a measure of G, a measure of A, a measure of D, a measure of F
the you keep building on F for another three whole measures

then the post chorus is now the pre-chorus (played once)
then TO VERSE 
then build up on C for a whole four measures 
then play the chous with an additional two measures of C at it's end 
then repeat it
then repeat it super soft for outro and sub in this for the final measure of C
