C and G are just easy keys to write in and guitar friendly too. They aren't really anymore effective than others but C Major is said to be happy. Besides Metal wouldn't be the same without E Minor,...

I'll admit I didn't open that right. Still I think it would be possible if you simply keep them all in mind but "Boys and Bears" and "No More Mr. Nice Guy" are most important. Also the keys of C and...

It wasn't really much of a bassline anyway. It could've stood on its own as a melody when it was being written and ended up not sounding like a bassline at all.
