Don't know the song, but I'll suggest having both of you playing it with a metronome.
My Rig:
Yamaha RBX 375 bass
Peavey Millenium BXP bass (won at Summer Slaughter 2010, signed by all the bands)
Eden Nemesis NC410 320w combo amp
Check out Tyrannicide, my death/thrash metal band:

please clarify what your problem is:
beginning at the same time? beginning with the same tempo?

i would say as soon as you hear the end of the main riff the one at the start kick in with the rythym and the bass it just needs a lot of practice.

my band had the same problem with Know your enemy-Green day as the bass doesnt kick in till bout 10-11 bars in its just a matter of practice really.

Thats all i can really say to be honest practice makes perfect you will eventually get it.

Honestly? Practice, practice, practice. It really isn't too hard though, it's a bog standard 4/4 beat.

That song is even easier than Sex on Fire.... Sorry, but if you can't get that song right then you really need to practice playing on your own before playing with a band.

Just practice.

true true but me and the guitarist in my band arent that great and only started playing a couple of months ago, so its just one of those things and its our first band.So we can be afforded a little leeway in some areas.

count the repetitions the guitar does.

I have the same problem- I forget a lot when I should come in.

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.

Do you mean you are having trouble coming in at the right bar? Or that you are having trouble coming in a bit too late/early?

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.

Most KOL basslines are extremely easy man and this song isn't hard i'd say you need quite a bit of practice before being in a band.
