         'Underwhelmed' by Sloan
          from the album Smeared
 
 (Sorry kids; no lyrics included because I don't remember
  'em & I don't have the album anymore).

 chords (from low E to high E)
      A     - x02220
      Asus2 - x02420
      B     - x24442
      E     - 022100
      F#    - 244322
 
 The song starts with a chunky (palm-muted) F#.

 The verse chord progression is F# - Asus2 - B, with
 a slight variation on the F#...

--2--2--2--2--2---0--0---2--2---- --2--2--2--2--2---2--2---4--4---- --3--3--3--3--3---4--4---4--4---- --4--4--4--2--4---2--2---4--4---- --4--4--4--2--4---0--0---2--2---- --2--2--2--2--2------------------
The chorus is A - E - F#. Only variation is an A - B progression after the 'i just ate my young' vocal.
There are several Chuck Berry-style blues scale slurs in F# during some of the verses that go something like this: -------------2-2----- ---4-(5)-4---2-2----- ---4-(5)-4----------- --------------------- --------------------- ---------------------
..and theres an octave riff at the end similar to this, if I remember correctly:
---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- --11-11-11-11--14--14--16--16----- ---------------------------------- ---9--9--9--9--12--12--14--14----- ----------------------------------
