Bermuda briefly talked about it at ALCON '98 - that long version in the credits where the song actually ends (rather than fading out) was a LAST SECOND addition to the movie. They always intended it to simply fade out, but the full un-faded version was of an absolutely perfect length for the credits. And they didn't make that decision until AFTER the soundtrack CD was finalized.
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn...that's alright because I like the way it hurts...

I would assume that they simply edited out parts of the long version to create the short one. Not unlike how they chopped "Buddy Holly" out of "The Alternative Polka".CatraDhtem @ April 15, 2005 12:19 am wrote: Actually, most likely the shorter version uses the same vocal track as the longer version, since the key difference between the two is an instrumental bridge and not a change in lyrics.
(And yes, I know I'm responding to a 4-year-old post here, but as someone who's dabbled in radio production/editing, this stuff fascinates me.)

Very upsetting to see that they are doing the shortened video version of the song live and not the one with the ripping solo. Really sucks actually, would have loved to see Jim do that but Al probably thought it was too long or something. Thought they'd be doing the ending from the end of the credits in the movie too, makes sense but they end it abruptly minus the explosion in the video. I really don't feel as bad about not hearing now, even though Bermuda and Steve really shine on it.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!
