    Does anyone have any suggestions for good punk bassists? I nominate Mike Dirnt and Matt Freeman.
     
  2. I don't like punk very much, especially todays punk, but let's not go into that. BUT I really like Mike Dirnt, even though he plays with a pick. He has very catchy bass lines.

    The Clash's Paul Simonon would be my choice.

  6. Given how many "pop-punk" bands are around- Karl Alvarez is probably the most imitated bass player these days-
    considering he pretty much wrote the book for the genre, nobody seems to know who he is.
