Songs With the Best Bass Performances

The Top Ten

1 Jerry Was a Racecar Driver - Primus Jerry Was a Racecar Driver - Primus

Les Claypool is arguably one of the best bassists of all time, and I think his unique style shows the best and is performed the greatest in JWRD. The song starts out with a heavy bass riff that stays strong for the entire song. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

2 Freewill - Rush Freewill - Rush

I'm really not a huge fan of Geddy Lee. His vocals are annoying and his keyboard playing is only above average. But his bass riffs pretty much make me forgive his vocals. He has a classic rock style that classic rock fans adore. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

3 Give It Away - Red Hot Chili Peppers Give It Away - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Say what you want about the Peppers, but you can't deny that their bass oriented rock is great. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

4 Ace of Spades - Motörhead Ace of Spades - Motörhead

Lemmy was a great bassist, and "Ace of Spades" was just one of his greatest songs. I was going to put "Overkill" in this slot, but the popularity and dominance of the bass lines in this song are one of a kind, and are as tough as Lemmy himself. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

5 Come Together - The Beatles Come Together - The Beatles

Possibly McCartney's best bass performance ever, it's soft but out-going at the same time. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

7 (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth - Metallica (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth - Metallica
