Top Ten Best Basslines


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Muse - Liquid State Muse - Liquid State
62 Fascination Street - The Cure Fascination Street - The Cure

Slow, simple and incredibly heavy. My favourite non-metal bassline. - LostinSonics

JUST LISTEN TO THAT SONG Google IT ON YOUTUBE AND YOU WILL KNOW WHO IS MASTER OF BASSLINES! Really try it... Also song where only two basses without guitar - Primary or bassline in Three Sisters

63 Around the World - Daft Punk Around the World - Daft Punk V 1 Comment
64 Led Zeppelin - The Lemon Song Led Zeppelin - The Lemon Song

How is this not number one? Has anyone even heard this song? The bassline is just genius.

65 Mudvayne - Dig Mudvayne - Dig
66 Body Crumbles - Dry Cell Body Crumbles - Dry Cell
67 Forty-Six and Two - Tool
68 I Want You Back - Jackson 5 I Want You Back - Jackson 5 V 1 Comment
69 Dragon Attack - Queen Dragon Attack - Queen
70 Muse - Time Is Running Out Muse - Time Is Running Out

Best intro ever who. Muse in general is an epic band and I love the way they make the bass guitar a main feature instead of just a filling instruments.

71 Duran Duran - Sound of Thunder Duran Duran - Sound of Thunder
72 Duran Duran - The Valley Duran Duran - The Valley
73 The Cure - Shake Dog Shake The Cure - Shake Dog Shake
74 Colorado Bulldog - Mr. Big Colorado Bulldog - Mr. Big

I Wonder this song is off the top ten list. Because for me Billy Sheehan basslines is awesome. Geez I think you all must hear this song before not picking Mr. Big. I don't know maybe you all have another opinion but I just wonder why

75 No One Knows - Green Day No One Knows - Green Day

Far better than Longview, the Bass weeps and cries in this song is the main tune that plays throughout accompanying the ecstatic drumming and the Magnificent vocal work. Shame that this one is rarely mentioned by Green Day fans let alone fans of the Bass because personally this is my all-time favourite bass line (Better then Muse's Hysteria and Black Sabbath's NIB)

76 The Clash - The Guns of Brixton The Clash - The Guns of Brixton
77 Time - Pink Floyd Time - Pink Floyd
78 Under Pressure - Queen with David Bowie (Hot Space)
79 Stevie Wonder - I Wish Stevie Wonder - I Wish V 1 Comment
80 Herbie Hancock - Chameleon Herbie Hancock - Chameleon

Classic bass line -- you can jam over this like forever!
