expobill: ZMugg: No love for King Crimson?Balderdash!
Flappyhead: Unsound by the Headstones is a favorite. Nothing really fancy, but simple and clean.
Ugly Baby Judges You: Couldn't do a CTRL+F on my phone, so maybe someone already covered this, but...no 'Waiting Room' by Fugazi? Really??
Lorelle: No love for Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix??
RexTalionis: What, no Under PressureIce Ice Baby?
acefox1: The ommission of Entwistle from that list tells me this list is totally pants-on-the-head-retarded.Nothing beats the bass lines in "My Generation." You can add his sound on Baba O'Reilly, Real Me, Bargain, Behind Blue Eyes, Goin Mobile and most other Who songs while you're at it.
one0nine: Second, what the fark, no James Brown? Really?!
Wasn't Looking at his Neck: And I'm the first to mention "Would?"
FloydA: NutznGum: FloydA: NutznGum: No ANYTHING from Primus?!?!? Fark off.PRIMUS SUCKS!NO, THEY DON'T[i105.photobucket.com image 500x375]
Omahawg: "Damn, you just can't argue with Omahawg. Ain't no denying that he ain't lying," Archie Bell said.
Fark You I'm Drunk: All the lyrics of transexuality, drugs, jiglos are kind of overshadowed by Herbie Flowers' use of two, yes that's right two, interlocking basslines.Who the hell wrote this article? There's just so much wrong with this sentence, it's hurts my eyes.As for the list, any article about basslines that doesn't mention James Jamerson is a failure.
NutznGum: I can't believe I missed that. I feel shame.
Fark You I'm Drunk: One of the most tear jecking basslines ever?The author of this article shouldn't be allowed to write anything ever again.
douchebag/hater: The Pixies?GTFO.The simple fact that the writer doesn't include 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine'shows she doesn't know her bass lines OR her music.
H31N0US: Oh Christ, I'll go, but only rock, and no particular order and with no unreadable yammering.Dazed and confused - zeppelinNo more tears - ozzyWould - AICWalking on down the road - RHCPFaciniation Street - CureSquealer - AC/DCRunnin with the Devil - VHMilquetoast - HelmetMy name is Mud - PrimusJerry was a Race Car Driver - Primus
WhackingDay: Er... um.. I don't even... Daft Punk? Whaaaaat? I mean, they're cool and all, but I'm pretty sure they don't employ an actual "bassist" you know. As in someone who plays the bass? I mean, if you're going to include Daft Punk, you might as well include Gorillaz, they've got some kickass bass lines.But seriously, the list is complete fail without at least one Rush song. Even if you hate Rush, as many do, you can't discount the skill of Geddy Lee.
I_Love_Cheesecake: Anything by Morphine.
qsblues: James Jamerson would biatch slap everyone on this list with everyone on this list.And yes, it IS rock n roll cuz there would be none without Motown.
GAT_00: SilentStrider: Headlong FlightClockwork Angels has some insane bass on it, but nothing that really qualifies as a simple pass line. I haven't stopped listening to the album since it came out.
AdolfOliverPanties: I have faith in the folks who posted "The Real Me," by Big Johnnie Twinkle, Thunderfingers, The Ox etc...I was going to post that earlier but thought "fark it," this list sucks anyway.Good on those who recognize true greatness.
H31N0US: Runnin with the Devil - VH
FloydA: NutznGum:I can't believe I missed that. I feel shame.No worries; I'm just old. ;-)
