Much of the bass work on the album Kilimanjaro by The Rippingtons has a nice groove to me. Always liked some of Primus' bass work as well...many others.

Trigger man by boss hog

Sex Bomb by flipper

Can I have a ride by Deli Creeps (got to be the early version though, official album is way too low)

Peace Sells: Megadeth

Hmmm. There’s so many songs with awesome bass lines and little widdlys.

Tommy the Cat is always fun.

Fun house: Stooges.

Most of my favorite bass lines are dreadfully simple, but it’s all about the feel. I wish more people understood that. Then maybe good bass players wouldn’t be be so hard to find.

Anything from Rush.

I love the bass line in "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac.

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

Crash Course In Brain Surgery. Basic, but so cool.

Metallica version.

Budgie (original version)

Look inside and you will see
The words are cutting deep inside my brain
On they're burning quickly turning
Knife of words is driving me insane, insane
Yeah, yeah
Raven black is on my track
Please show me how to neutralise the knife
Show to me in surgery
The art of finding words to conquer life, or can try
Yeah, yeah
Ooh baby, I can rock and roll
Ooh baby,…

Owning a Mag means never having to say you're sorry.

The most amazing bassist I have ever seen live was Ryan Martinie from Mudvayne. Even if you're not into metal, he is impressive to watch and rips on a bass like no one I have ever seen. I watched him for a majority of the set and didn't hardly notice anyone else, haha." width="644" height="390">" />">

I'm a huge King's X fan, and while it's a very simple bass line, I love Dug's grinding tone in this tune:

Love Steve Harris as well, and his lead-bass style:

Frank Bello is a beast. This is how thrash bass should sound:
Everybody loves me!

King's X is such a good band...

I've been learning Primus's "When the Toys Go Winding Down."

Edit: Faith No More had some SOLID bass lines. I've been jamming the Angel Dust album.
Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?

That's good stuff! Never heard that before. Thanks!

My favorite so far is More Love by Victor Wooten. Unfortunately there isn't a real good video of him playing it so here is the song followed by a cover where you can actually see the technique. There is no guitar in the song. All strings are Wooten on the Bass in one track I believe.
