Just get it cut a little. It will grow back. Besides why is it so important to look metal? That's just retarded.

Pretty much all Rancid basslines but some favourites are:
Detroit, Tenderloin, David Courtney, Maxwell Murder, Roots Radical, Olympia W.a. and Journey to the end of east bay.

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

Chameleon is probably the definition of a sweet bassline. (even though it was played on synth)

I have to say, love 'em or hate 'em, "Longview" by Green Day has a pretty nifty bass line.

But seriously, just listen to anything by the Minutemen, cuz Mike Watt knows what's up.

RHCP have a lot of good basslines. Maximum the Hormone have a few, short basslines that I like. It's not hard or amazing, but I love playing Breakin Lily's bassline (by MtH).
