About a year ago, I caught them playing "Rock Star" on Letterman. It was pretty kickass- lots of big guitars and rock. Lately, I've tried to download the song at Kazaa, but it seems different- the guitars are replaced by beats. Is that the deal with the version on the album? It was good but I missed the guitar sound.

If it's not a remix it's a unreleased copy. I worked at a college radio station and read in some music news mag that said they originaly recorded the album without a band. The record company didn't like it and asked them to rerecord with a group of musicians.

The original version was all synthesizers and crap. The new version (the one that I own) has all live instruments, and it kicks butt!!! Everyone should go out and get it. It is the feel good album of the century! I can't wait until they release more music as NERD. I love it, because the Neptunes are so rich and powerful that they can do whatever the heck they please, and it will still garner critical acclaim.
