I like the sound, song and performance! Regarding the sound I find nothing to complain about - it sounds Rock'n roll! :D

Overall, the mix sounds nice and clean... I love the vocal sound...

For some possible improvements:
    1.) I would like to hear a little more kick and snare
         a.) The kick has a slight boomyness and lacks a little punch.  If you rolled some of the lows off, you could raise the volume and get more of the kick tonality in there.
         b.) The snare punch is really good, but I personally like to hear some more snare body.  A couple possible solutions for this would be to add a smashed snare track underneath with a really quick attack so that the transients don't come through, but will bring out some more of the tonality of the snare.  If that doesn't work out, you could always throw a sample underneath the snare to add some body or even make a fake room track
    2.) The vocals could come down around 1-2db
    3.) The vocals sound slightly slightly scooped in the mids and could have 1-2 db added around 900 Hz

Overall, good job.. Nice and clean

Sounds great to me man ....great vocal sound. Definitely agree with the comment about the kick though. My normal practise would be to duplicate the kick and create a 'kick click' track rolling off everything below 800Hz so its pretty much just the beater you're hearing. Then blend this in with the normal kick in the mix to get a snappy sounding kick. Snare has a great attack but I would add a little more body to it (200-250Hz).
