41 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground

Classic slap.

42 Limp Bizkit - The Truth
43 Aeroplane - Red Hot Chili Peppers 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.

44 Sweet Emotion - Aerosmith Sweet Emotion - Aerosmith V 1 Comment
45 The Clash - London Calling The Clash - London Calling
46 Alice in Chains - Would? Alice in Chains - Would?

One of the best and darkest bass lines ever

47 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Tell Me Baby

To me it's one of Fleas best slap songs, I don't care for anything else on this track but the bass line and drum rhythm.

To me, to have a successful bass line, you need a really good drum beat and chad smith did excellent. Those two really make a good combo. - ben6785

48 Bob Marley - Stir It Up
49 Tame Impala - The Less I Know the Better Tame Impala - The Less I Know the Better

Most infectious danceable song ever, due to the killer bassline. Bornt of Kevin Parker's love of disco and shrooms, the man has no recollection of recording the song. But it endures as one of his most notable accomplishments, a modern disco classic.

The bassline will be stuck in your head for days- and you'll love it

50 Chic - Good Times Chic - Good Times

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

51 Dir en Grey - Cage
52 White Zombie - Black Sunshine White Zombie - Black Sunshine
53 Muse - Darkshines Muse - Darkshines
54 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles

This is probably the greatest bassline I have ever heard in my life. I envy those who know how to play it on the guitar. The last three minutes of the song is absolute guitar playing gold.

55 Led Zeppelin - How Many More Times Led Zeppelin - How Many More Times
56 I Will Possess Your Heart - Death Cab For Cutie I Will Possess Your Heart - Death Cab For Cutie
57 The Cure - A Forest The Cure - A Forest

TRY FASCINATION STREET BY THE CURE... This list is a joke

58 Daft Punk - Mothership Reconnection (Daft Punk Remix)

Once this bass kicks in, you are in a party dimension! The line is a great contrast between the sharp treble synths. Incredible track.

59 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Coffee Shop Red Hot Chili Peppers - Coffee Shop
60 Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
