Best song without using lead/rhythm/acoustic guitar

Only bass guitar allowed. Which is the best song without any lead/rhythm/acoustic guitar ? Slightest of guitar would make it ineligible.

I can think of 3 such good songs

- On the Way to club by Blur
- Idiotique by Radiohead
- Enjoy the silence by Depeche Mode


But may be the blur song is my fav out of these 3

Please tell me other songs which u think are good but without any lead/rhythm or acoustic guitar

Thanks
AcrobatMan

Anything by Morphine, Primus, Primus, and Primus.
Or Les Claypool in general. Did I mention Primus...

Radar Love - Golden Earring is close..

I'm pretty sure there wasn't any actual "lead guitar" playing on some infamous Queen tracks.. Brian might have been making noises but it wasn't any kind of lead riff.. tracks like Get Down Make Love, Body Language, Another One Bites The Dust... Under Pressure comes damned close as well...

Victor Wooten and Flea both have similar under their belts.

And the late, great, sorely missed Cliff Burton's incredible "Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth)"

As great as that song is, it does feature guitar. Quite some in fact.

lol sorry, I play bass, all I ever remember of songs are the bloody bass lines anyway... stuff that's mostly bass-driven tends to stick in my mind without any recollection of lead or rhythm

Except Vic Wooten can play circles around Flea (or any other bassist for that matter).
