*****
One of their best
******
Awesome.
**
Horrible! Incredibly stupid lyrics and plodding guitar 'riff', sounds like a pre-Nickelback song

the structure isn't so bad though which makes it a bit less formulaic

An ok song. UK#34.
******
wicked silverchair track.


YEAAAAAAAAAAAA I'M A FREAKKKKK
**
Metallica or Motorhead could have sung this.
*****
Nikki Webster, Hanson or Puff Daddy could also have sung this.

Great track, very cool.
*****
#13 TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100 (1997)

Spent two weeks atop of my personal chart.

A classic by Silverchair!
**
Very dumb lyrics I agree. They have so many songs that are waaay better than this.
*****
Not as good as 'Tomorrow' and some of their later stuff, but it's still a damn fine rock track! The video is a bit off-putting though.
***
The guitar is quite impressive, but the droning vocals and ordinary lyrics drag it down.
****
4 stars
***
Average.
**
Crap actually. Hate the vocals and the lyrics are pretty stupid as well. Really quite a dire listening experience. Every time I hear it I think of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which is another song I don't like. Hate that it got to #1, "Break My Stride" is a million times better and deserved to be there instead of this.
