Its not very noticeable. I mean if you just listen the song for first time.but if you pay little bit of attention then you'll hear the slap bass and its awesome! - zxm
The sample here will tell you. - zxm
No offense or not saying it worse. But when I saw the live version of the song, it was quite funny. I couldn't stop laughing. How they sing "POW" and dance. POW. - zxm
Released in '78. quite old song for slap bass. - zxm
Is a good slap line, and flea is extremely good doing the slap
Flea is god of slap :D
Thought could use this. - zxm
One of my all-time favorite songs (the verses are the best)
I have added it low because its not in English. But it has more than one bass solos. Three (or four) slap bass solos. The last one isn't slap bass though. It's a tapping solo. - zxm
For me, this is the best. It is simple yet very groovy sound. This is really matured kind of slapping on bass. Not relaying on speed or too much techniques or complexity on style but, good enough to make people feel the groove and make them dance.
Whenever I play this song I want to punch a hole in the wall I get so amped
This band is so underrated

Some of the parts got mixed with guitar riffs. but in the beginning you'll listen the solo. - zxm
