What initially got me into it was Mike Dirnt from green day and Duff McKagen from GnR. Recently stuff like BTBAM and Protest The Hero (especially on "she who mars the skin of gods") makes me want to pick it up because, especially as a guitarist, the bass lines being just as hard as the guitar parts makes it a fun challenge.

mostly Alternative rock/metal(rush, RATM, Limp Bizkit, Tool, Arctic Monkeys, RHCP). But also hard rock, like Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath(actually learning N.I.B and War Pigs right now).

But I gotta say, my newest inspiration is Gov't Mule, which I wouldn't categorize as hard rock or metal...

The stuff that got me into playing bass was Metallica, Rush, RHCP, you know, the typical stuff. The kind of things that I play nowadays include Rush, Muse, RATM, Porcupine Tree, HTT, Maiden, Zeppelin, and a bunch of other stuff.

that's not the only music to listen to. That may be more popular, but it is far from the only music out there.

Whenever I need motivation to play, I just listen to some Janek Gwizdala. Dude changed the way I approach the electric.

Not sure if trolling er....

If you say theres no good music, either you're not looking hard enough or you're just a jaded asshat.

When I started playing bass, I was doing a lot of Cliff Burton-style stuff before I even knew who he was (I started playing bass when I was 16 but never heard a Metallica song until I was 18 and didn't get into them until I was like 21).

Nowadays, however, I do more emphasis on rhythm and so I look to Bill Leeb (Delerium) for my style.

Honestly, I picked up the bass MOSTLY because of Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe and Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine.

Now, I'm really into Dan Briggs of BTBAM and Alex Webster of Cannibal Corpse (I'm so shocked he hasn't been mentioned yet!) and Arif Miradolbaghi of Protest the Hero.

Weirdly enough, I don't USUALLY enjoy playing metal bass. I like hiphop and Indie/Alternative and atmospheric and... other genres?

I like everything :|

My favourite style of bass playing is the melodic, almost "lead bass" style. My three favourite players right now are Andy Rourke (the Smiths), David Wm. Sims (Jesus Lizard), and Brian Cook (Botch, These Arms Are Snakes, Russian Circles, etc.). I can't stand it when bass players just play along with the guitar. Where's the fun in that? Lowered pitch shouldn't mean lowered importance in a band. The three guys I've mentioned make their presence known without overtaking everything.

It's not about fun, it's about how it sounds. Sometimes the song needs the bass to play the same as guitars to make the riff sound huge. Sometimes just hitting the open E string sounds awesome. Listen to Runnin with the Devil. The song wouldn't be anything without the bass hitting quarters on open E string.

I also like that kind of cool fills and stuff but sometimes the song needs AC/DC kind of one note basslines.

Why? Playing together is fun, no matter what you play. I don't really care about how fun my playing parts are, I want to make good music and if the music needs an AC/DC kind of bass part, I play it. It satisfies me if it sounds good. If the part is fun to play and it doesn't sound good, it doesn't satisfy me and it's not fun to play any more. I mean, of course you don't want to practice AC/DC songs at home because there's nothing to practice about them but playing simple songs with a band can be fun. Being able to make something sound good is the main point in playing in a band.

Also if the bandmates are my close friends, I rather play with them than with some other guys.
