Top Ten Best Basslines


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Muse - Hyper Music

Great play between the lead and bass line

Even better than hysteria

42 Nirvana - Come As You Are
43 Tool - The Pot

This is my favorite. Tool has the best basslines ever! - moose4life19

44 Aces High - Iron Maiden
45 Megadeth - Trust
46 Alice in Chains - Would?

One of the best and darkest bass lines ever

47 Give It to Me Baby - Rick James
48 James Brown - Sex Machine
49 Lithium - Nirvana
50 Seinfeld - Kitsch and Camp
51 Guti (The Finale) - Aurthohin Guti (The Finale) - Aurthohin
52 Stanley Clarke - School Days

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.

53 Yes - Heart of the Sunrise

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

54 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground

Classic slap.

55 Chic - Good Times

How is this- one of the most recognizable bass lines ever- not on the list already?

56 Sweet Emotion - Aerosmith


57 Limp Bizkit - The Truth
58 The Clash - London Calling
59 Aeroplane - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This deserves to take By the Way's spot, By the Way deserves Tell me Baby's spot, and Tell me Baby's spot should be up here.

The solo, the bridge, the slap, this song is perfect bass.

60 Bob Marley - Stir It Up
