I love this song so much! thank you! just thought I'd let you know it is blow and not grow, but it doesn't matter :) cheers again.

Thanks a bunch, my friend and I are going to be preforming this at our school's talent show so this really helped me a lot!

Love this one of my favourite songs ,if you play bass and dont use a capo transpose to -2 but otherwise this is perfect thanks so much,

I made a mistake it +2 not -2

I do D DDU in the beggining and then later just DDU UDU
+3   March 9 2013, 12:23 pm by pollyjeanes |
strum down twice then down again quickly whilst changing into the next chords if that helps!
+1   March 11 2013, 10:03 am by Kazkuris |
I use DDU UDU for the rythm.

And a correction on the line "Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive" it should be the G chord on top of "radioactive", "I'm" is said in the C chord.
+1   March 14 2013, 04:33 am by ukarumpajoe16 |
On guitar you would have to decide on your own rhythm, the song doesn't actually have any rhythm guitar in it.
+2   March 16 2013, 02:42 pm by Kazkuris |
DDU UDU and D DDU
works fine for me...
March 21 2013, 04:27 pm by KasChris17 |
Not that it affects the tab, but the lyric is "Enough to make my system blow."

Great Tab otherwise, great song, Thank you

March 29 2013, 11:22 pm by mnvc111 |
um is there a srumming pattern? and does this require one of those peg thingies that you put on like the 2nd fret? i wasnt sure. im a bit of a noob at guitar. sorry. and this is the song on the host trailer right
+4   March 29 2013, 11:25 pm by mnvc111 |
blow not grow
March 30 2013, 05:43 pm by P.B |
I actually love this song so much. I'm obsessed with it and then I heard it on The Host ad and I was like "OMG OMG I LOVE THIS SONG!!!:)"
thanks for tabbing it:)

Very good tab

I don't personally think this is correct... I've been playing along to the song and it just doesn't sound right to me
April 11 2013, 07:24 pm by jjaswome |
can you put the strum please

Am C G

+1   April 14 2013, 05:16 pm by Lr1003 |
It should end on am
April 18 2013, 10:59 am by AJonah |
What key is this in? noob here
-1   April 21 2013, 10:12 pm by Zula110100100 |
The key is probably G, so the G is I, the am is ii, the C is IV and the D is V
April 22 2013, 12:06 am by StormJH1 |
Excellent chords, was a blast to play! Except for the intro, most of it is the equivalent of a bass playing root notes, but for the chorus or the "D" notes that end certain phrases, try a D7 instead.
April 28 2013, 10:06 pm by guitar_geek123 |
I'm pretty sure it's blow, not grow.
May 5 2013, 06:09 pm by Abokland |
This is almost perfect except on the single "whoa" after "apocalypse" it should be the D chord instead of it being at the beginning of the chorus.... Great job overall!
May 12 2013, 02:02 pm by windehlin |
thanks for this wonderful song
really great!

To play this song without the Capo, increase the chords by one full tone.

B min, D maj, A maj, E maj. Dead Easy!
May 26 2013, 01:15 pm by brokenstrings97 |

Thanks~! This helped alot ^_^
+1   June 9 2013, 04:26 am by KenLuzOn |
much better to pluck the series of chords rather than strumming :D
+2   June 10 2013, 06:17 pm by jamezybee |
absolutely awesome tab, can be played Bm, D, A and E without the capo too, 5 stars :)
+2   June 16 2013, 05:34 am by ninamaria.heyer |
I think it would be better if this 'Whoa' is D not G
June 20 2013, 05:50 am by soepxkom |
You can also play the bass string.

Like: Chord = Am
2x A-string , down, down, up

chord = C
2x a-string , down , down, up

chord = G
2x E-string , down , down, up
Chord= d
2x d-string , down , down, up

Try a Bm in the bridge instead of the G - I think it sounds better.

Em* Bm* D* A*
All systems go, sun hasn't died
Em* Bm* D* A*

July 7 2013, 03:19 am by Sandy_is_fun |
You know, you can play it without a capo... Bm D A E
July 7 2013, 05:16 pm by AlexiaValencia |
The 'whoa's in the verses could use an F at the end.
July 9 2013, 12:34 pm by pooreboy |
Chords are correct, capo is not needed, they do not use one in their acoustic version. Check out You Tube.
+1   July 9 2013, 12:36 pm by pooreboy |
Check out the You Tube acoustic version, these chords are correct, no capo.
+3   July 11 2013, 02:54 pm by TrevorGuitarist |
Down Down Down Down Up, but when you strum up its between changing chords, so when you strum up you wont have any chords laid down.
July 11 2013, 05:34 pm by andriuxas1998 |
It's Almost the same, just in a different place,soo, yeah.
July 14 2013, 01:06 am by Andrewzguitar |
On the "woah"s it should be a D not a G but perfect otherwise!
July 17 2013, 12:22 am by hay-jay98 |
Yeah, the peg thing is called a Capo and you put that on the second fret :D I use DD UDUDU for the intro part, and then DDU UDU for everything else :P Might be wrong, but I hope that helps :)
July 19 2013, 11:39 am by jennie.berridge |
its enough to make my systems blow? great tab though :) xx
July 20 2013, 08:46 pm by xanthegarcia |
wow i love dis song now dat i know how to play it i cant stop playin it imma play dis at a talent show :) thx
July 23 2013, 07:27 am by AaronWinter |
And just a heads up, if you want to play their acoustic version from the new iTunes EP, the chords are; F#m, A, E, B
July 23 2013, 03:19 pm by rwalters1210 |
Perfect! Thanks for sharing
July 24 2013, 07:34 pm by harlsdog990 |
Personally, I found the capo on the 4th fret sounds better. But I guess that's just personal preference. Other than that, perfect.
August 1 2013, 05:03 pm by faigy |
omg! awesome chords! luuuuuv this song :)
August 6 2013, 04:17 pm by gardoure |
just go along with the syllabals of the words in the song, it should come naturally after you listen to the soundtrack a couple of times
August 6 2013, 07:41 pm by horsegirl0027 |

Brilliant tab, thanks mate:)
August 18 2013, 01:47 am by Sophfearless33 |
Awesome tab!!!! You've done a really great job thank you :) my only suggestion would be to play D rather than G on the whoa before the chorus otherwise amazing !!!!!!!! :D
August 18 2013, 11:17 am by mckenzieca |
i think it's down half a step too

this is an amazing version and the best one i could find!!! it was incredibly easy to learn. anyone who learns to play this should trying playin it at parties. had a house party of 150 drunk people singing along while i played this xD
October 29 2013, 09:34 am by Elzbelz |
Upon playing this I found it was easier to sing on capo 3 if you have a higher voice such as my self :) great tab though, well done x
October 31 2013, 09:43 am by Leusel2703 |
I think at this : woah it should be D noot G

How the hell capo should be used on the second fret whilst the chords used for this song need to be played with that fret!???
-1   December 1 2013, 10:39 pm by darkraven11 |
dose any one have the strumming patterns for this song
+1   December 13 2013, 05:01 pm by Dr Steven Poop |
If I could make a correction, the D chord at the end of the verses sounds much better with a barred F chord (E moved up one fret and barred on the 1st fret) So the verse chords would be-- Am C G F --

The D at the end of Chorus' is correct

Also, at the end of the verse, heading into chorus, that G on "Whoa" should be F:

Am C G
This is it, the apocalypse
F
Whoa

Hold F Am C
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
December 15 2013, 03:29 pm by sfhoog99 |
Enough to make my systems blow
December 19 2013, 03:18 pm by Joschi98 |
Great chords! I think its a D on the "Whoa" isnt it?
December 25 2013, 10:13 am by jorgeterrazas |
it would be great to know the strumming pattern
January 1 2014, 12:50 pm by pj100600 |
On the "Woah"s I believe the chord should be D.
January 1 2014, 12:51 pm by pj100600 |
I think D sounds better.
January 2 2014, 06:11 pm by whdahl |
The part where its a single strum sounds better as
Am Em G D
All systems go, sun hasn't died
Am Em G D
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

This sounds completely off. For the 1st verse it's Em G D C (with capo on 2nd fret) and the chorus is Em G D A. You know what, I'll just submit my own chords later.
April 5 2014, 01:06 pm by karolina_k |
Does anyone can tell me what does * means above chords ? :D
April 7 2014, 12:13 pm by brokenyodelle |
The capo is unnecessary. Just play Bm D A E.
April 9 2014, 06:50 pm by Maybelle_Sloan |
My neighbor is obsessed with this song and band, so I decided to learn it for him :P Thanks! The chords fit perfectly!
April 22 2014, 06:33 pm by Dallon426 |
The Whoa part at the end of the verse is a D Major chord
April 25 2014, 01:27 pm by ondracekvojta |
I don't really know if this is correct, but I use this rhythm: On every first chord Down...Down and on every second chord UP-UP-UP Down

May 18 2014, 08:29 pm by Staccato27 |
awesome tab.
without capo its
Bm D A E

But it does sound better with a capo

Ultimate guitar needs more tabs this good.

Thanks for delivering such a quality tab.

Heres to comment 127!
