    Hey i like basslines of Blink 182 "carousel" and "cacophoney". Do anyone know of any other songs by other bands that have interesting basslines like those carousel and cacophoney.

    Not being a B182 listener myself, but understanding your interest in pop-punk, look to other similar styles... Like Sublime, they were sort of in a ska direction for a while and produced incredibly cool basslines (see "wrong way" - it sounds harder than it is to play, but not by much) - or my favorite neo-punks, AFI. The stuff they have on the radio is bunk compared to their other stuff. See the entire AFI album The Art Of Drowning for the most fun you can have with your ears set to "new punk".

    Good luck! - oh, and for good basses on the cheap, many members here like Essex (sometimes SX) and Brice basses from - they're like 150 bucks new, tops. Also check the classifieds forum here, people sell cheapos allatime.
