The Contenders: Page 2

21 PJ Harvey - Down by the Water
22 Led Zeppelin - Dazed and Confused

Have you ever heard the original Dazed that these guys stole! Note for note bass line and most of the words! How did these guys not get their pants sued off them! That's not the only music these guys stole! Great bands give the credit to the real writers! The Who, The Beatles.

Stolen this may be, but it's stolen so damn well!

Zeppelin basslines are some of the best blues-jazz basslines in the industry, the world is worse off now that Bonzo and JPJ will never perform together again.

23 Led Zeppelin - Ramble On
24 Slide - Slave
25 Red Hot Chili Peppers - By the Way

Where is aeroplane?!? This is still a great song and bass line. It's very prominent and distinct

I've played bass for many years and this has been one of my favorite songs to play since the beginning.

26 Papa Roach - Getting Away with Murder
27 Can't Get Enough - Liz Torres
28 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

One of pop's best and catchiest basslines, that's for sure. - Mrveteran

Billie jean is number 1
Stupid list

29 Atomic Dog - George Clinton
30 Sick Puppies - You're Going Down
31 Ain't We Funkin' Now - The Brothers Johnson
32 My Name is Mud - Primus
33 Tommy the Cat - Primus

without the bass there would be nothing to like in this song

Cut the guitar, drums or vocal part. The bass part alone itself is great. - zxm

This bassline is Primus' hardest bassline. Just listen to it. - MKBeast

34 Body Slam - Bootsy Collins
35 Black Sabbath - N.I.B.

Listening to the track is one thing, but actually going to see them play it live is amazing. Best bass solo ever. Amazing show, too. Best metal band

Incredible bass solo, the first bassist to use distortion, and also a brilliang guitar riff. This is top 10 material along with Metallica's Orion and Megadeth's Peace Sells.

Cannot believe this is not higher!

39 One More Shot - C-Bank
40 Pictures of Home - Deep Purple

Also includes a bass solo - Metal_Treasure
