    I was feeling down and now,I can play 2112! I really hit my prime!,but anyways,enough w/bragging

    I wanna learn how to make good bass intro's,so punk seems like a good way to hear some examples of this :) .(Please don't recommend me Ramones,I literally learned the entire album on the first hearing).Something like Joy Division (Peter Hook is amazing) or really anything punk that is interesting :p

    Just punk, or post-punk? If you like Joy Division, check out some early Cure, Killing Joke, Gang of Four, Magazine, Bauhaus, et al.

    Oh, and the first Cocteau Twins album, GARLANDS:



    These are a couple of my favorite bass lines ever.

    I recommend "Double Nickles on the Dime" by the Minutemen great mix of very simple to quite tricky bass lines by one of the greatest punk bass players Mike Watt.

    "The Decline" by NOFX. 18 minutes long and some of Fatty's best work ever.

    The Ruts, the early Stranglers, the early Clash that's punk music to me. Some of the music mentioned here, not so much.

    I wish I could have made those basslines....but man is it some sort of pedal that the guy's using? It sounds so roomy and powerful

    He's definitely using some modulation effect - chorus or light flanger maybe. And there's plenty of reverb on everybody in that track.
    Glad you like it, BTW. All the rest of the Cocteau Twins albums went in a sort of techno-pop direction, but that first one is a real overlooked gem.

    The first two Clash albums, "The Clash" and "Give 'Em Enough Rope"

    Stand-out songs for me from "The Clash":
    Complete Control, What's My Name, Janie Jones

    From "Give 'Em...":
    Last Gang In Town, Safe European Home, English Civil War, Tommy Gun

    Operation Ivy is nothing like Joy Division, but it fits your criteria of "anything punk that is interesting." Their song Freeze Up is an ass-kicker!

    Of course Maxwell Murder by Rancid Most Rancid really...

    And The Casualties and early Anti-Flag albums

    That's where I got my start in punk at least

    I never listened to a lot of Choking Victim, but they have a nostalgia factor for me; a band from Canada covered "500 Channels" at the first basement show I ever went to.

    I got to play in an Operation Ivy tribute band in August, which was really special. A lighting designer I was working with gave me Energy right at the tail-end of middle school, before I was even playing music.
