One of pop's best and catchiest basslines, that's for sure. - Mrveteran
Billie jean is number 1
Best, immediately recognizable and equally fun to hear and play! - AlphaX
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.V 1 Comment
It's very annoying to see DB's name first in these credits. Everyone Knows that the bassline was already finished before DB even got involved w/ this kick-ass song. John Deacon and the GREAT FREDDIE MERCURY had already worked out the framework, so, it Should be QUEEN and then DB, Not the other way around. DB readily admits that the bassline and most of the song was almost done when he came to the studio to actually do another song w/Queen.
Anyway, fantastic song! Best versions are, of course, Freddie at Montreal and Wembley, w/out DB's input... Laugh out loud.
Cannot believe this is not higher!
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. - zxmV 1 Comment
This is my favorite. Tool has the best basslines ever! - moose4life19V 1 Comment
The people who vote on these are basically completely uninformed. Do any of them know anything at all about bass playing? Stanley Clarke is god.
So THAT'S why this isn't top ten, no sample. At least yet, I hope. This song is pure controlled musical insanity, what yes does best
