not neccesarily the best ones. At the moment the bass on the chorus of Loughborough Suicide is lodged in my brain.
that's the most amusing song i head at summer sundae.
addictive basslines: Death From Above 1979 "Going Steady"
I heard there was some sort of outrage from the people of Loughborough. it's a great song too.
i didn't dig the young knives, they sounded like they were playing the same song over and over again. still. worth seeing for comedy value :D
they are quite samey. Damn addictive though.
to the bassline in Ellen Allien & Apparat - Turbo Dreams
It's got this big throbbing techno type bass melody that goes up and up and up, and kinda slices through everything else going on in the song.
whole album is incredible... way out, turbo dreams and jet make my ears smile
she's great live too - i've seen her thrice in the last few months
C'mon Cincinnatti by Delakota

There's also a very catchy one on the first Skalpel album that used to haunt my every moment
And the standard punk bassline (major scale) of 1st-5th-6th-4th is really addictive
Kool & The Gang
