			   ROCK STAR by Hole
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ah, the classic mistitled closing track to 1994's Live Through This, originally known as
"Olympia". I've read through lots of tabs for this song and I think people are
over-thinking it. It's really just pure, good old-fashioned power chords. There are
obviously two guitars in the song (Courtney Love is playing clean rhythm and Eric Erlandson
is playing
lead heavily distorted). The two opening chords that ring at the beginning are played
clean, and this is repeated one other time in the song, but for the majority of it Love is
playing clean under Erlandson's heavily-distorted guitar. Easy song to learn for 
beginners, and a pretty fun one too. Love's screaming vocals here are some of her best.
