    Church Of Misery - I, Mother****er (Ted Bundy) - killer riffs and distorted bass tone

    Black Label Society - Mother Mary - great example of bass distortion, one of my favourite tones of all time

    I've always liked the Ash song "Jack Names the Planets", from the soundtrack to the movie "Angus." The fuzz bass really jumps out during the verses.
