101 Dead Men Tell No Tales - Motorhead Dead Men Tell No Tales - Motorhead

Pretty easy until you get to the guitar solo, all the mad bass stuff under that's a right bitch...

102 Souls of Black - Testament Souls of Black - Testament

This song has one of the best bass rifts in history. Fun and difficult to play.

103 Bloodmeat - Protest the Hero Bloodmeat - Protest the Hero
104 Salute to Kareem - Red Hot Chili Peppers
105 Speed Demon - Michael Jackson Speed Demon - Michael Jackson
106 Guti - Aurthohin
107 Cancer - Aurthohin
108 Moonchild - Iron Maiden Moonchild - Iron Maiden
109 Turn the Page - Rush Turn the Page - Rush
110 Destiny - Stratovarius Destiny - Stratovarius
111 Panic Station - Muse Panic Station - Muse

Awesome, few strings at once and the higher frets are actually on top of my bass but great song!

Not too hard. But so good! All basslines here that are hard are really bad. Can't beat muse to be honest. Just enough bass! Not too hard. Not too easy!

112 Time Is Running Out - Muse Time Is Running Out - Muse
113 Genghis Khan - Iron Maiden Genghis Khan - Iron Maiden V 1 Comment
114 Teen Town - Weather Report Teen Town - Weather Report

"Teen Town" is not unplayable but should definitely be higher on this list. A rather intricate line spanning the whole fretboard played at a rather fast pace. One of Jaco's most memorable lines.

116 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse V 1 Comment
117 Barbarism Begins At Home - The Smiths Barbarism Begins At Home - The Smiths
118 Speak Free - Incubus

Not the hardest but if Green Day is on here this deserves at least a mention.

119 My Name Is Mud -Primus My Name Is Mud -Primus

Needs to be way higher on this list, especially for the fast Les sings AND plays this atthe same time

120 The Real Me - John Entwistle The Real Me - John Entwistle V 1 Comment
