Powerman 5000 – Murder tab

This song is one of my favorites, it has a really high-energy, upbeat sound to it.  I
there were no tabs for it on this site, so I made my own, because this is a really fun
to play.  It's not hard either, except in the pre-chorus after the bridge where you get 
tremolo picking a tough riff that requires you to stretch out like 5 frets, but it will
fall in place with some practice.

I put the tab into 2 guitar parts: the rhythm and lead guitars.  I think that the lead
be harmonized, but I find it easier to play it this way, at least to learn the song.
