Bass tabs for Beginners

I've noticed a few people asking for bass tabs to start off playing, and thought should have a seperate thread for them. If any bass players could post some basic tunes for people just starting to learn, would be good.
Thanks

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Highway to Hell, AC/DC is also really easy. That was one of the first things I learned from tabs.
