Basslines

So, what are your favorite non-U2 bass lines? Lately, I'm really grooving to Kasabian's Butcher Blues. Very sexy.

The Cure - 'Charlotte Sometimes'
Most New Order songs.
Joy Division as well. 'Transmission' Hooky = genius
Manic Street Preachers - 'Archives Of Pain'

and there's probably this big bunch of soul/rnb that I'm forgetting but yeah.

Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
Iron Maiden - Wrathchild
Pearl Jam - Jeremy
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give It Away, Californication, Get On Top, Can't Stop, and Higher Ground (as DeadMan suggested)
Pink Floyd - Money

And I aspire to one day be able to play YYZ by Rush, but I'm a long way off that yet. Geddy Lee must be superhuman.

Oh, I've got a whole bunch! I judge a lot of songs by the quality of the bassline. I'll do this in alphabetical order...

The Chills - Pink Frost
Very simple, but it sounds so great.

The Clash - The Guns Of Brixton
This song is in the bass.

Echo And The Bunnymen - Crocodiles
Fast-paced and explosive...just like a post-punk bass riff should sound! (The guitar is also rather great in this one.)

Echo And The Bunnymen - With A Hip
The bassline actually reminds me a little of early U2 bass riffs (which isn't surprising, considering that Adam and Larry were the biggest Bunnymen rip-offs between 1980 and 1982).

Interpol - Evil
Very catchy.

Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
It's basically just the synth riff that plays in the chorus, but it sounds great.

Modest Mouse - Tiny Cities Made Of Ashes
Like The Guns Of Brixton, the bass makes this song. The catchy vocals help, but that bass. It always gets stuck in my head.

Muse - Hysteria
If you listen this song, it'll become evident immediately why the bass kicks arse.

Pink Floyd - Money
Everyone knows this bassline. It's brilliant. Long live Roger Waters!

Pink Floyd - In The Flesh
The bassline is identical to the guitar riff, but it's awesome.

Pink Floyd - The Happiest Days Of Our Lives
The way Roger Waters and Nick Mason worked together on this one is great. Brilliant stuff.

Queen - The Invisible Man
Very cool!

Radiohead - Dollars & Cents
It gets me every time.

Radiohead - Where I End And You Begin
The bass is the best part of the song.

Radiohead - The National Anthem
See above.
