I need you guys to give me some recommendations for some good bass music, or at least audible stuff which is legendary. I don't mean Primus esque stuff, I mean like catchy, funky, that sort of think And, On the other end of the scale, I need some booming loud basslines for rock and metal.

Sacrifice Theory by AFI and Hysteria by Muse both have epic basslines.

Also try some Rage stuff, like Take The Power Back.

try some death. Scavenger of human sorrow has a great bassline throughout the whole song, that is if you can keep up with it.
GEAR:

Ibanez GSR205FM

You could merge those two genres together and then learn some primus?

Or you could check out the "I need songs to learn thread" at the topp of the page

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

These are the legends in my book. They may not be metal enough for you, but as a bass player, I can't emphasize taste and technique enough. Just remember that it's not all about speed and virtuosity--a lot of it is choice of notes and the silence in between the notes that makes a memorable bass line breathe. You can find most of these somewhere on YouTube. Find the studio versions of these songs if you can--that way, you can hear the bass lines clearer. Good luck, and let me know if they inspired you.

The Zen of Duh: How low can you go? Zero Hertz. That's the lowest anyone can go. Just turn off your bass amp and not play.

Q-tuner PUs (0X0 configuration) and HG Thor Labs for the best fretless bass tone. MWAH FACTOR!!!
