Banned In Dc Chords
Tabbed by: Joe Sherrin
Song: Banned In DC
Artist: Bad Brains
Album: Bad Brains
Tuning: Standard

Havent seen any guitar tabs for this, just bass tabs, so i sat down at busted one out.

- I made a little chord diagram cus he uses different E's. Also when theres a "5" next 
the chord that means its a power chord.

Also, almost every time an E5 is played, instead of just strumming it he slides from D#5 
now and then. i didnt write these D#'s in but listen to the track to see what im 
about... he does the same slidy thing on the A's in the 2nd verse.

  E5  E  B5 C#5 D5 G5 D#5 

Intro:(gunna do the intro in parts to make it easier to understand)
1) (weired strumming so listen to the song before playing)
E5/ //////
2) Just bass; bass does some crazy stuff on E
3) Drums enter with snare roll.
4) E (let ring) E5 (let ring)

Main riff and 1st verse:
B5 C#5/D5/C#5/D5 E5

1st chorus: (not sure if lyrics are right)
G5       D5  D#5  E (note: this E is low)
you, you cant touch me.
G5     D5  D#5  E
I, im banned in DC
E5  E5

verse 2: (same as verse 1 but higher, so instead of playing normal F#'s play them 
on the 9th fret etc)
E5 F#5/G5/F#5/G5 A5

chorus 2:
C5       G5  G#5  A
you, you cant touch me.
C5     G5  G#5  A
I, im banned in DC
A5  A5

bridge: (heavy PM)

1st guitar plays this for ages and then 2nd guitar busts out a solo but im no good at 
solos cus i hate writing out tab on the internet...but the solo starts on the 16th fret of 
g string so make up your own

thats all

About the artist behind Banned In Dc Chords:

Bad Brains are an American hardcore punk band formed in Washington, D.C. in 1977. They are widely regarded as being among the pioneers of hardcore punk,[1][2][3] though the band's members objected to the term "hardcore" to describe their music.[4]

Originally formed as a jazz fusion ensemble under the name Mind Power, Bad Brains developed a very fast and intense punk rock sound, which was both musically complex, and was often played faster and more emphatically than the music of many of their peers. They were also an adept reggae band, in a sort of Jekyll-and-Hyde arrangement, while later recordings featured elements of heavy metal and funk. Bad Brains are also notable as religious followers of the Rastafari movement.

Bad Brains broke up and reformed several times over the years, sometimes with different singers and/or drummers. The band's classic and current lineup is singer H.R., guitarist Dr. Know, bassist Darryl Jenifer, and drummer Earl Hudson.

Bad Brains were ranked #99 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.

Though the official name of the band is Bad Brains, they are often referred to as The Bad Brains, sometimes even by the band members themselves. The Beastie Boys were huge Bad Brains fans, and they intentionally selected a name with the initials B.B. because of this.
