Top Ten Best Basslines


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Alice in Chains - Would?

One of the best and darkest bass lines ever

42Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc.

Probably the best bassline of the noughties, besides Schism perhaps. - Mrveteran

43Red Hot Chili Peppers - Tell Me Baby

To me it's one of Fleas best slap songs, I don't care for anything else on this track but the bass line and drum rhythm.

To me, to have a successful bass line, you need a really good drum beat and chad smith did excellent. Those two really make a good combo. - ben6785

44Bob Marley - Stir It Up
45Peace Sells - Megadeth
46Chic - Good Times

How is this- one of the most recognizable bass lines ever- not on the list already?

47Dir en Grey - Cage
48White Zombie - Black Sunshine
49Muse - Darkshines
50Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal

Awesome tune. I can't believe this isn't in the top ten.

51Jerry was a Race Car Driver - Primus
52Led Zeppelin - How Many More Times
53Tame Impala - The Less I Know the Better

Most infectious danceable song ever, due to the killer bassline. Bornt of Kevin Parker's love of disco and shrooms, the man has no recollection of recording the song. But it endures as one of his most notable accomplishments, a modern disco classic.

The bassline will be stuck in your head for days- and you'll love it

54Come Together - The Beatles
55I Will Possess Your Heart - Death Cab For Cutie
56The Cure - A Forest


57Daft Punk - Mothership Reconnection (Daft Punk Remix)

Once this bass kicks in, you are in a party dimension! The line is a great contrast between the sharp treble synths. Incredible track.

58Red Hot Chili Peppers - Coffee Shop
59I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles

This is probably the greatest bassline I have ever heard in my life. I envy those who know how to play it on the guitar. The last three minutes of the song is absolute guitar playing gold.

60Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
