61 Coffee Shop - Red Hot Chili Peppers Coffee Shop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Amazed no one else believes this song isn't hard. the second solo alone can make some veterans curse flea's name. it took me about 4 days just to get the slapping right on the verses.

62 Booshuckdow - Assorted Jelly Beans
63 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Get Up and Jump Red Hot Chili Peppers - Get Up and Jump

This song is harder than practically every other song on here! Its also badass!

64 Scarified- Racer X
65 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

This song has a really wacky off kilter song structure that makes this song extremely difficult to recreate. Definitely an accomplishment to get this one down.

66 Rio - Duran Duran Rio - Duran Duran V 1 Comment
67 The Distance - Cake

The timing is what makes it difficult

68 The Invisible Man - Helloween The Invisible Man - Helloween
69 Vapour Trails - Pekka Pohjola

For some time I've been wondering, if Geddy Lee was familiar with mighty Pohjola's basslines?

70 Bombtrack - Rage Against the Machine Bombtrack - Rage Against the Machine
71 Eyes of the Squirrel - Primus Eyes of the Squirrel - Primus

This is a really fast bass line that is difficult to play constantly accurate and to play 100% the way les claypool plays it.

72 Liar - Queen Liar - Queen
73 Take No Prisoners - Megadeth Take No Prisoners - Megadeth

Probably the hardest riff on bass

74 The Sinister Minister - Béla Fleck and the Flecktones The Sinister Minister - Béla Fleck and the Flecktones

Victor Wooten is a monster on this song. The slap on the song may seem simple at first glance, the double thumb is insanely hard, and the solo, when played live, is unlike anything you've ever seen.

75 Mind - System of a Down Mind - System of a Down
76 Eminence Front - The Who Eminence Front - The Who

My most favourite The Who song.

Very hard to play.

77 Hit me with Your Rythm Stick - Ian Dury Hit me with Your Rythm Stick - Ian Dury

Although people wouldn't think of it as hard bass song, it require limber hands, high speed, good memory and its also fun to play! Check it out and you will realise it is a difficult bass song. (I'm not into Ian Dury at all so this is coming from a non bias perspective)

78 Forty Six & 2 - Tool
79 Flow My Tears (The Policeman Said) - Stuart Hamm

All tapping, and the middle section? Don't even try.
