Best, immediately recognizable and equally fun to hear and play! - AlphaX
Cannot believe this is not higher!
It's very annoying to see DB's name first in these credits. Everyone Knows that the bassline was already finished before DB even got involved w/ this kick-ass song. John Deacon and the GREAT FREDDIE MERCURY had already worked out the framework, so, it Should be QUEEN and then DB, Not the other way around. DB readily admits that the bassline and most of the song was almost done when he came to the studio to actually do another song w/Queen.
Anyway, fantastic song! Best versions are, of course, Freddie at Montreal and Wembley, w/out DB's input... Laugh out loud.
This is my favorite. Tool has the best basslines ever! - moose4life19V1 Comment
without the bass there would be nothing to like in this song
The people who vote on these are basically completely uninformed. Do any of them know anything at all about bass playing? Stanley Clarke is god.
So THAT'S why this isn't top ten, no sample. At least yet, I hope. This song is pure controlled musical insanity, what yes does best
This deserves to take By the Way's spot, By the Way deserves Tell me Baby's spot, and Tell me Baby's spot should be up here.
The solo, the bridge, the slap, this song is perfect bass.
One of the best and darkest bass lines ever
Probably the best bassline of the noughties, besides Schism perhaps. - MrveteranV1 Comment
