Before I had heard of this song most people told me about how great it was, the saviour of mankind, etc. But when I first heard it, the only thing that stood out to me was the guitar riff. So I learned it, but because the vocal track sounded so cheesy, I never really got into the song. Anyway, now as I listen to it, and that usually tends to be while I am driving, I always imagine that it would be the song that I would die in a car wreck while listening to. It just gives me that sense of irony that no one would ever know how fitting it was to my death but me. Anyway, the part where the octave-higher vocals come in now gives me goosebumps, and at the end when he is singing something over a continuous ascent of notes and it finally resolves, well that part is amazing.
