As Mr Kite knows, Holiday by Green Day has fantastic bass (and a bass solo)! As does Seven Nation Army

(This signature brought to you by Net Boy and Net Girl. Putting messages in modems since 1996.)

It's nothing too complicated, but it's still pretty cool...

How could I forget - Mick Karn's bass on Visions of China. My favorite fretless bassist.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Fleetwood Mac's The Chain

The Who's The Real Me (or any Who song, John Entwhistle's a legend)

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

James Jamerson on Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her"
Chris Squire on "Roundabout" (Yes)
Lemmy Kilmister on "Ace Of Spades" (Motorhead)

Those are the first few that come to mind.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

Another one bites the dust was the first to pop up in my head, but it's already been mentioned. 

Okay..

Cream-Sunshine of your love

That one hasn't been mentioned.

I also noticed that grunge songs often have a great bassline. I mean, look at Nirvana, or Alice in chains. 

Oh and this one, a bit more recent: MGMT-Electric Feel.

Not a grunge song obviously, but a very catchy bassline.
