    Come on, people, they don't ruin the song. I kinda like them. The piano really makes it, though.

    Seriously, there used to be a VERY rare acoustic recording of this song - it was taken off YouTube and I can't find it ANYWHERE online... Anyone know of this? Thanks.

    @pogopatterson - People need to stop using the term "sell-out". Honestly. Any artist selling their music or selling merchandise relating to their music are "sell-outs".
