    These are only off the top of my head:


    • "In the Meantime" by Spacehog
      "I Alone" by Live
      "Save A Prayer" by Duran Duran
      "This Charming Man" by The Smiths
      "Good God's://Urge" by Porno For Pyros
     
  4. Try these:
    my own summer (shove it) -DEFTONES
    smells like teen spirit -NIRVANA
    every other song by Nirvana
    Long View -GREEN DAY

    I can't think of any others at the moment, but there are plenty!

    ROCK ON
    SCODI
     
  5. Hey Bulldog (The Beatles)
    Ramble On (Led Zeppelin)
    Black Again (Stone Temple Pilots)
    5-15 (The Who)
    Santeria (Sublime)
    What Is Hip (Tower Of Power)

    what's your flavour? These aren't really difficult, they are just awesome. "What is Hip" will get you working though!
     
  6. any song by Primus
    you can clearly hear the bass, and (for most people) it's stuff thats rather difficult.
    Summer by Alien Ant Farm
    not really difficult but interesting and melodic (once a Primus cover band).
    Steal My Kisses by Ben Harper
    on the CD "live from mars" Juan Nelson does a killer bass solo, not to mention the killer line he plays throughout the song.
    Schism by Tool
    starts out with some bass chords, then goes into a bass riff that basicly is the central point in the whole song.
