It’s Monday…it’s Summertime…screw it…let’s ROCK!!!

We were sitting around on The Morning Rat Race, having a heated rock debate, when we asked the question, “What are the BEST basslines in rock history?!”

Well fear not!   That why lists were invented!   So, behold! East Side Dave’s Top Basslines In Rock History!   Let’s rock!

5.) “Money” by Pink Floyd

Roger Waters knocks it out of the park with this iconic bassline from one of Floyd’s biggest singles.



4.) “Come together” by The Beatles

Paul McCartney writes an iconic bassline for this John Lennon-penned classic.



3.) “Ramble On” by Led Zeppelin

John Paul Jones’ bass work in this song are arguably the heart and soul of the track.



2.) “My Generation” by The Who

John Entwistle writes one of the most kickass bass riffs early in rock’s history.



1.) “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen

John Deacon composes not only one but TWO legendary basslines that we debated between on this list…”Under Pressure” and “Another One Bites The Dust”.   We’re going with the latter…but they’re both awesome!
