What are some of the coolest basslines you've heard?

I just heard one that I loved, but i can't figure out what it was.

Some of my favorites are Money - Pink Floyd, and Longview- Green Day.

Post your favorites...

Rancid - Maxwell Murder

I've never heard of AMS or Enigma, so i'll check them out. But yeah, Rancid and Primus always have awesome basslines.
Edit: I looked for them, and can't find anywhere to hear them. So Are they like local or something?

Anymore cool ones? It doesn't have to be as complex as those songs, Just something that has a cool little sound...

I can think of hundreds of cool basslines, but for now I'm gonna say Muse- Plug In Baby and Tool-Schism.

EDIT: Also anything by Steve Harris.

AMS and Enigma are dance tunes. you wouldn't like them but their bass is heavy! extra-cool if there's a bass box in your car. literally feel the ground rumbling. :D

EDIT:
Scott brown - don't fuck wit this
DJ nosferatu - have it your way.

Self Esteem repeats Four different notes in the chorus. And they're not mixed. :rolleyes:


Thanks for telling me about Pirates Life though, I just listened to it and it's awesome.

I love Primus' American Life, Jerry was a Racecar Driver, DMV, Sgt. Baker (love the diminished [is that the right one?] scale), Pudding Time, My Name is Mud, Welcome to this World, and Too Many Puppies. I'm sure I'm missing some, but whatever. I also love the basslines in Tiger Army songs.

If anyone wants to check out an awesome bassist, check out Burke Shelley of the band Budgie. Their songs have kick ass basslines.
