Tuning half a step down

This song is also re-played now by Billy Idol out of Generation X, with Steve Stevens on guitar.

Contrary to popular belief this song is not played with a capo (I think many people get
wrong because either they are deaf!? Or they are just following the common misconception
all punk musicians canย’t play guitar!?) To reiterate all the guitars in this song do not use a capo.

Here is the tab, please rate etc, thanks.
