    I am having a great time playing around with my knew overdrive but I can't think of any songs besides RHCP's Around the World and Metallica's Anesthesia that have an interesting distorted bass.
    I just need new stuff to get my hands on, any suggestions?

  2. Any song by :

    - Muse
    - Fear Factory
    - AllodoX ( :D )
    - Hypocrissy
    - Messhuga

    and many many more

    ace of spades - motorhead
  4. Blur - song 2
    Kent (swedish indie band, very good!) uses dist. sometimes
    Marylin Manson
    Rage Against the machine - the battle for L.A.
    Handsome (not Hanson!)

    ...and others I can't think of right now. But Check out Rage against the machine, he's very good, and uses a wah-wah as well.

  5. WOOOHOOO !! :D

    b.t.w. i've been to Aarhus once for the " the party " demoscene symposium... nice town :)

    Check out anything by Bens Fold Five. Their bass player makes interesting use of distortion. (Fooled a lot of people into thinking they had a guitar player)

    Almost any live Cream album will seem like Bruce is using a distortion device but he is not.

    Nobody has mentioned Jack Bruce's very cool overdriven tones in the days of Cream.....
