The Top Ten
Most definitely the best bass line I've ever heard! Got to love how Muse isn't afraid to use the bass as not just a background instrument!
Oh yeah, VERY good bassline, played by one of the best bassists ever, Chris Wolstenholme
Chili peppers and muse have the best bass lines, but this song has more bass notes than guitar notes and in a great pattern
If the CD is not impressive enough... Check out Live at Glastonbury! THAT'S A BASS SOUND!V 4 Comments
Manages to create something incredibly catchy, memorable and unique, all the while with the odd time signature of 7/4. Whatever I may think about Roger Waters as a person, he was undeniably a great bass player and this song is the most obvious proof of that. - Mrveteran
If you've played this song, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Pink Floyd RULES!
Easily one of the catchiest bass licks of all-time, a timeless classic that should top the list!
Amazing song. Really cool time signature of 7/4.V 6 Comments
John Deacon is the unsung hero of Queen.
Extremely catchy & funky bassline of one of Queen's best. Perfectly demonstrates why John Deacon was both the secret weapon member as well as the most underrated member of Queen. - MrveteranV 1 Comment
Come on guys. This song has one of the most recognisable bass lines ever. The time signatures are so unique and the growling 12/8 bass intro is awesome.V 2 Comments
What can I say?... flea is a fantastic bassistV 2 Comments
Ok, just listen to this sample and tell me this doesn't belong in the top tenV 1 Comment
Should be in the top three at least. - georgielikesgreenday
The Bassline was written when the Bassist was high on LSD. That alone sells it as one of the best.
I think this one should be higher up on the list but at least it's in the top 10.
Epic bassline, at least top five, other Green Day songs like castaway, welcome to paradise, 86, make out party and missing you should be high up in this list as well as californication (RHCP), iron man (Black Sabbath), black dog (lead zep), supermassive black hole (muse), panic station (muse) and superstition (Stevie wonder)V 3 Comments
How is this not number one? Has anyone even heard this song? The bassline is just genius.
Really, what this is the best. We are talking about Geddy fkin LeeV 1 Comment
Distortion, time signature changes and utterly heavy? What more could you ask for? Not to mention how the way it is made to sound like a bell ringing at points is a nice touch. RIP Cliff Burton. - MrveteranV 1 Comment
Have you ever heard the original Dazed that these guys stole! Note for note bass line and most of the words! How did these guys not get their pants sued off them! That's not the only music these guys stole! Great bands give the credit to the real writers! The Who, The Beatles.
Stolen this may be, but it's stolen so damn well!
Zeppelin basslines are some of the best blues-jazz basslines in the industry, the world is worse off now that Bonzo and JPJ will never perform together again.
