Top Ten Best Basslines


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

Stupid list doesn't know... THIS IS THE KING OF BASSLINES

62 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

63 Seinfeld Theme

Some slapping! - zxm

yes - wrests

64 Dir en Grey - Cage
65 White Zombie - Black Sunshine
66 Muse - Darkshines
67 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.

68 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

Awesome tune. I can't believe this isn't in the top ten.

69 Walk on the Wild Side - Lou Reed
70 The Clash - The Guns of Brixton

This is has a great baseline. Paul Simonon is a genius.

71 I Want You Back - Jackson 5

So catchy

72 Led Zeppelin - How Many More Times
73 Dawn Patrol - Megadeth
74 I Will Possess Your Heart - Death Cab For Cutie
75 The Cure - A Forest


76 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.

77 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Coffee Shop
78 Muse - Liquid State
79 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

80 Herbie Hancock - Chameleon

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