Top Ten Best Basslines


The Contenders: Page 2

21 PJ Harvey - Down by the Water
22 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

Was this not on the list? - christangrant

23 Led Zeppelin - Ramble On
24 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.

25 Slide - Slave
26 Papa Roach - Getting Away with Murder
27 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

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

Billie jean is number 1
Stupid list

28 Can't Get Enough - Liz Torres
29 Sick Puppies - You're Going Down
30 Atomic Dog - George Clinton
31 Ain't We Funkin' Now - The Brothers Johnson
32 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

33 My Name is Mud - Primus
34 Rio - Duran Duran

Best, immediately recognizable and equally fun to hear and play! - AlphaX

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.
