Best Bass Playing in a Song
The Top Ten
Masterful, in your face bass playing. Brilliant - Shake_n_Bake13
He rocks the bass with the skill of Eddie Van Halen on a six-string here. Technical skills are just brilliant - Shake_n_Bake13
Thunderstruck was recorded in January 1990 and AC/DC's bassist is Cliff William, not Cliff Burton. Cliff Burton (Metallica Bassist) died in September 1986 so he can't record a song after his death. R.I.P. - malamJONES
My official apologies for putting Cliff Burton instead of Cliff Williams. Obviously I knew that. It was a careless mistake that I should have caught - Shake_n_Bake13
There are a lot of reasons this song is so adrenalizing. The powerful bass line is one of them. - Shake_n_Bake13
Personally I've always been a Jason Newsted fan, but there is no denying Burton's masterful playing in this song - Shake_n_Bake13
Standout song in Avenged Sevenfold's catalog for bass. Very catchy bass hooks in this jam - Shake_n_Bake13
The successor to another very talented, very underrated bassist in Lorne Black, Montana really sets the tone for this song with some stylish bass lines - Shake_n_Bake13
One of Manson's lesser known songs but it starts out with a very masterful bass intro that sets up for a very underrated song - Shake_n_Bake13
Bass isn't the first thing you think of when you hear this song. But when you really listen, it becomes quite clear what's driving the power in this song - Shake_n_Bake13
It may be a bit cliche to put on this list a song that includes a straight-up bass solo, but it can't be argued that this is one badass solo - Shake_n_Bake13
Steve is the man - Johnnyt800
One of the only W.A.S.P. albums on which Lawless played bass, and he did an excellent job on it. This is his standout song on the four-stringer - Shake_n_Bake13
Faviourite W.A.S.P. Song cause I'm a wild child come an love me
John Deacon is the unsung hero of Queen.
Iconic with Under pressure.
The bass line is 'Something' - malamJONES
Go listen to just the bass track of this song, it is so good.
One of the best basslines ever recorded. - Userguy44
The lack of Claypool on this list disturbs me. - Brobusky
Freeman is an amazing bassist and this is one of the songs where he shines most
Stuck in my head. Simple, but amazing!
