Classic��
I would like to say this song never gets old, but I think I would be possibly missing the point. I think it's ironic, don't you? Another funny play on words capturing the hearts of millions and one bands 15 minutes of fame held forever in infamy.

overrated garbage song
I go in thinking, "i love this song" and then realize, "it's quite rubbish". it plays a trick on the mind with its never ending violins drumming out the same freaking thing over and over and over again....yaw n .

It was sampled off a live version of the last time by the Rolling Stones. The instrumental was the start and sounded just like this.
However, from what I understand it wasn't the Stones but their old manager who sued the manage had bought the copyrights when the stones were starting
This song made me hate rolling stones after I found out the history. You barely hear the sampling in the rolling stones song, and this song is so great! RS needs to get over it.

Didn't they use this song in a movie ? :)
Good rhythm and good song
Awesome song one of my favs
This song speaks to me
One of those songs that buzzed for a while, and sometimes that sort of success can taint what else the band might have tried to release later. Sometimes the big one can also be the ultimate downfall, and that's the cruel reality of music business.
I can play this song on my violin...
Symphony

Gotta be my hands down favorite. The movie rocks also. This song reminds me off of a great boss we once had that pissed suddenly speaking of being a slave to the grind. Unappreciate d . . I feel it ultimately took his life.. This song I dedicate to him..he's at peace now. :)
