So you pick up a bass, just at random, and the first thing you play is.....what?

For me: the trooper by iron maiden, or Orion by metallica.

Also:these don't exactly need to be your favorite lines. Just your favorite to play.

Dream Theater - The Root Of All Evil (intro riff)
Dream Theater - Panic Attack (intro riff)
Muse - Hysteria
Muse - Time Is Running Out

And occasionally Nirvana and Sex Bob-omb songs.

when I spend my time striving to place the crown upon myself?
