bighairyguy: And I dare anyone to say they don't get out their air bass for this:
BroVinny: rocinante721: SEVEN NATION ARMY/ducks, coversI have to agree, even if it wasn't played on a bass.
jmonty: Radar Love - Golden EaringRoundabout - YesBack in the Saddle - AerosmithOne of These Nights - EaglesSomething - BeatlesThe Real Me - The Who (seconded Earguy)Sunshine of Your Love - CreamSlowride - FoghatHey You - Pink FloydDriven to Tears - The Police
SilentStrider: Headlong Flight
markie_farkie: Your blog sucks, and I'll just leave this here:Green Onions live in Norway
NutznGum: FloydA: NutznGum: No ANYTHING from Primus?!?!? Fark off.PRIMUS SUCKS!NO, THEY DON'T
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.
spacebar: Lame list needs to Tighten Up.
Mr. Lickalickalicka: "Dragon Attack"
radiovox: "Walking on the Moon" by The Police.
AverageAmericanGuy: No Humpty Dance? This list sucks!
PainfulItching: Respect - Aretha Franklin's version
jso2897: Charlie Mingus Tonight at Noon
TypoFlyspray: The Beatles - Taxman, Come Together, Paperback Writer, She Came in Through The Bathroom Window. (Sir Paul? Shut up and lay down a bassline, sir. It's what you really do best.)
coffee fiend: The typical Farker on bassists and basslines: Blah, blah, blah... Jaco Pastorius; blah, blah, blah./your favorite band/bassist/musical genius sucks//mine doesn't///slashies
dg41: NutznGum: No theme song from Barney Miller?Travesty.
rcf1105: Paul McCartney had some pretty rocking bass lines back in the day - Paperback Writer comes to mind immediately.
Sandinista81: Come As You Are?!What a sad excuse for a music journalist.KILLING JOKE DID IT FIRST
MagicBus: It's been posted several times already but deserves to be mentioned again:"The Real Me" -- John Entwistle -- essentially playing lead guitar on the bass
stupiddream: weiner dog: One of the Millions - XTC, written by Colin Moulding. Moulding was fantastic at marrying melodic lines with supportive grooves. King for a Day would be another good example.This? Colin is very underrated IMHO.And speaking of Colins; how about P-Tree's Colin Edwin and .3 from In Abstentia?

lanmac: Funbags: Its My Life (by Talk Talk, covered by No Doubt)Another One Bites The DustSoul To SqueezeThat is all.if you are going to post "It's My life", please post this insteadLink
Godscrack: Not rock, but listen worthyEverybody Dance (intro) - Chic. Bass by Bernard EdwardsThank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) - Sly and the Family StoneBernadette The Four Tops. Bass by Carol Kaye
Usurper4: For you John Paul Jones fans out there, I wonder how many of you have picked up or heard him do Zooma(takes about 45 seconds to really kick in, but damn, first time I heard that groove, I just smiled)
Benjamin Orr: No Bootsy CollinsNo John Paul JonesNo Cliff BurtonNo Nathan WattsComplete and utter fail
Kraftwerk Orange: SilentStrider: Rush- pick a song. YYZ,[www.2112.net image 640x360]I'm going to go a little out there, and go for some good old dirty south basslines:"Dynamic Duo", by Magic Mike"Cars that Go Boom"
runcible spork: Have always liked Kenny Gradney's line in Little Feat's "Spanish Moon." With Clayton's congas, they set the mood.
Fano: I don't think the writer is aware black people exist.
Skwishmitten: TOOL - 46&2 is hands down the greatest bass line ever. EVAR!
I_Love_Cheesecake: Anything by Morphine.
Omahawg: "Damn, you just can't argue with Omahawg. Ain't no denying that he ain't lying," Archie Bell said.
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.
Lorelle: No love for Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix??
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??
SilentStrider: Liverboy: Smoke on the Water - Deep PurpleAnother One Bites the Dust - QueenBack in Black - AC/DCIna Godda da Vida - Iron ButterflyHow the hell young ARE you people anyway?AC/DC has bass?

bighairyguy: And I dare anyone to say they don't get out their air bass for this:The cracks between the paving stonesLook like rivers of flowing veins.Strange people who know mePeeping from behind every window pane.The girl I used to loveLives in this yellow house.Yesterday she passed me by,She doesn't want to know me now./Come on, I dare ya!
chibimateo: Is it just me, or do about half of the songs in TFA not even have a prominent bassline?That said, the list clearly fails without I Want You Back
DiscoSuperfly: SilentStrider: GAT_00: I also realized listening a few times it's a steampunk rewrite of 2112.it shares some themes with 2112, but I wouldn't call it a re-write. The protagonist in this case has an entirely different fate.This is turning in to a Rush hijack thread./yes, I have been listening to the album non-stop, too.
Stile4aly: RexTalionis: What, no Under Pressure?The only valid reason for leaving this off the list is if they say up front that all non-morons agree it's the greatest, and what follows is a list that goes from 2 - 11.
rocinante721: SEVEN NATION ARMY/ducks, covers
The English Major: Nirvana's on there for some reason, but not Queen. What the hell.
