    1. Chic - Good Times (or Rapper's Delight)


    Best bassline ever more like.


    2. The Breeders - Cannonball


    Fun to play with flats on.

    3. Pino D'Angio - Ma quale idea


    Hehe. So greasy.


    4. Pixies - Gigantic


    The value of being able to repeat the same thing for 4+ minutes!


    5. The Dismemberment Plan - What Do You Want Me to Say?


    The bass line barely makes any sense but it's so badass.

              I just had this on my Last.fm and I think the bassline is the best of the whole song:




              But there are dozens of great basslines, e.g. Rush - Working man or Queen - Another one bites the dust

                      They're not talked about much, mainly due to the "keyboard-era" period, but "Marathon", "Turn the Page" and "Prime Mover" have tremedous bass lines that are very musical. I find myself humming the "Marathon" bass line quite often
                      This used to be a great place. Thanks, GCI, for killing it.See y'all at Wein's.

                          I think we might be twins!

                          Also some killer bass lines on Presto that are catchy as hell.

                            Flea's rendition of "If You Want Me To Stay" is pretty awesome, and I don't even really like RHCP that much.
