Drum-wise there is nothing fancy going on - like everyone has said, the whole song is in 4/4 time. There are upbeat accents that follow the guitar part.
The "weird" thing you might be hearing is: after the upbeat accents - the guitar part starts on the two of the beat (typically speaking it would normally start on beat one). Makes it sound like the beat is flipping around - but drumbeat does not flip at all.
Don't believe anything you hear and half of what you read.
