Don't know how much anyone else will care for these, but The Verve in their early days were easily the best shoegaze band as far as bass went. I love the bass - and the killer guitar - on the Voyager 1 live versions of "Slide Away" and "Gravity Grave". The latter in particular is the definitive version of the song, one of the best moments in shoegaze history.

Miike Snow - The Rabbit

start 43 seconds in:
Nadia Ali, Starkillers & Alex Kenji - Pressure (Alesso Edit) (Official Music Video) [HD] - YouTube

oh yeah, this almost feels like cheating, but one of the pantheon performances has to be the youtube of Stevie Wonder performing Superstition live on Sesame Street.

Haha nice thread title!

Lemon Song is an excellent pick. JPJ really rocked that bass!

And of course anything from U2's Pop, really.

Really into this band right now and looking forward to their debut record. Not posting their original video, though. Don't want anyone to get fired for watching it at work.

Sweater Weather and Female Robbery are both great. And pretty much everything I've heard by them.

Harrowdown Hill by Thom Yorke (my brother played this in the car with the bass turned up and I was practically bouncing against the vibrations in my chair)

Strip The Soul by Porcupine Tree (Works really well with .3, as seen below)

Porcupine Tree "Strip The Soul / Dot Three" Live in Tilburg - YouTube
