Top Ten Best Basslines


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Fascination Street - The Cure

Slow, simple and incredibly heavy. My favourite non-metal bassline. - LostinSonics

JUST LISTEN TO THAT SONG Google IT ON YOUTUBE AND YOU WILL KNOW WHO IS MASTER OF BASSLINES! Really try it... Also song where only two basses without guitar - Primary or bassline in Three Sisters

62Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin

How is this not number one? Has anyone even heard this song? The bassline is just genius.

63Mudvayne - Dig
64Led Zeppelin - Ramble On
65Body Crumbles - Dry Cell
66Forty-Six and Two - Tool
67I Want You Back - Jackson 5V1 Comment
68Dragon Attack - Queen
69Muse - Time Is Running Out

Best intro ever who. Muse in general is an epic band and I love the way they make the bass guitar a main feature instead of just a filling instruments.

70Duran Duran - Sound of Thunder
71Duran Duran - The Valley
72The Cure - Shake Dog Shake
73Colorado Bulldog - Mr. Big

I Wonder this song is off the top ten list. Because for me Billy Sheehan basslines is awesome. Geez I think you all must hear this song before not picking Mr. Big. I don't know maybe you all have another opinion but I just wonder why

74No One Knows - Green Day

Far better than Longview, the Bass weeps and cries in this song is the main tune that plays throughout accompanying the ecstatic drumming and the Magnificent vocal work. Shame that this one is rarely mentioned by Green Day fans let alone fans of the Bass because personally this is my all-time favourite bass line (Better then Muse's Hysteria and Black Sabbath's NIB)

75The Clash - The Guns of Brixton
76Time - Pink Floyd
77Under Pressure - Queen with David Bowie (Hot Space)
78Stevie Wonder - I WishV1 Comment
79Herbie Hancock - Chameleon

Classic bass line -- you can jam over this like forever!

80Around the World - Daft Punk
