Know Your Enemy

Animated Know Your Enemy tab by Green Day on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Although it's played quite fast, the chords for this song are just a simple powerchord progression.

B5 - E5 - B5 - muted B5 - B5 - E5 - B5 - A5

Each chord is struck twice, except for the A5. Repeat that sequence a few times for the intro, then use the F#5 chord. Then do the above sequence one more time, before changing to the main chord progression of the song (it's very similar)...

B5 - E5 - B5 - open notes (struck once in passing to the next chord) - F#5

Strum the F#5 then repeat the whole sequence again. Just be aware that sometimes Billy Joe slides from the last F#5 chord.

The only other main song section is the chords behind the solo:

E5 - B5 - open strings (once in passing). Repeat this sequence twice more then alternate between F#5 and B5. Rinse and repeat.
