    Bass distortion is just like guitar distortion, works the same way, just gets a little muddy when chording.

    If you'd like some examples: Metallica's Orion, Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth) and the intro to For Whom the Bell Tolls.

    There are some other prime examples, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.
