King Crimson - The Great Deceiver (Cool how the Wetton bass give a strange simmetry with Bruford drumming on the strophes)...

A lot of Geddy Lee/Chris Squire/Mike Karn Riffs...

Tool - Schism/The Pot...

Purely cause it's one of the legendary basslines in my mind that always come to mind "White Lines"

I also like Flea, but for me it's Give it Away Now. I love the way the bassline ties everything together. Didn't like their stuff much after BSSM.

Sexiest part of a song? Depends on the song, but yes, it's very often the bass. Sometimes it's the singer, sometimes it's the lead instrument, sometimes it's the production. In many songs, the bass is mixed too low to hear. In a great many (non-dance) songs, the bass just plays the occasional low tone now and then. Not all songs even have a bass.

Silly question, really. But hey, the rest of this topic is fun. :hihi:

Some great stuff in here.

These are the ones that are the most memorable for me:

Funkiest acid bassline ever:

SL2's 'The Noise' was a popular tune at raves back in the day, mostly for its sub bassline:
