    In keeping with the 'axe4me' series of songs-U-like threads, how about Bass driven songs where the main riff is the bass line.

    Here are a few of my favourites:

    New Model Army



    Joy Division



    The Sisters of Mercy

    Great white---Rock me
    Ozzy---No more tears
    Greenday has one
    RHCP---Higher ground

    I even have recorded one of my songs that has a prominent, driving bass throughout the song.

    I love Bug Powder Dust @jimmyjames. The popular culture references leap all over the place. Lyrical masterpiece!

    "Houses of the Holy like Jimmy Page, but the Song Remains the Same so I'm stuck in a rage"

    "Who's that man in the windowpane? Got somethin' on his tongue and it's startin' to stain!"

    I am more familiar with the Kruder & Dorfmeister remix, which is far more laid back and THE stand out track on the K & D Sessions.
