Our band plays everything in Eb or drop Db...sounds fine and eliminates retuning during gigs.

Best band for bass 1/2 step down would be 'protest the hero', but if you go on the advanced page next to the search bar, you can search by tuning to see a load of bands that use the half step tuning.

If you get an acoustic guitar capo it will work good on a bass, i mostly keep mine tuned to d standard and capo it for Eb and standard

I think I read something on here where someone said that Eb standard is really the strat tuning. as in it was the tuning that made a strat sound best.

edit: just realized this in the bass forum

why does it matter? I guarantee if someone would've made a "what are some songs in ___ tuning" there'd be people saying "use the search function, this thread gets made every other week" blah blah blah.
