The tune starts out with a 4 bar intro cranking out some barre chords.
For the E barre chord, you'll be up at the 7th position with the root on the A string, 7th fret. Get your picking hand anchored near the bridge across the strings for your palm muting. Pick aggressively - this is punk rock!

Note in the intro, for the very first strum, the chord is actually at the 6th fret (playing an Eb barre chord). This is a typical move in punk rock songs.
