I'm gonna risk looking like an ass and suggest playing a song you yourself like.

there are no required basslines, only ones you want to play yourself.

like Muse? learn Time Is Running Out. into Queen? Another Bites the Dust. like the Sex Pistols?learn Anarchy in the UK.

you like what you like, not what I like, not what he likes, not what she likes.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

schism by tool. well, not yet. aim for that but start out with fight for your right by the beastie boys. that's an awesome song and very easy on bass.
