Hey, I've recently routed my interface so when I play stuff in my DAW it'll come out my amp (pretty neat way to use VSTs etc while playing live). Anyways, I was wondering if I did playbacks via my amp if it would blow my speakers because of the bass in my songs? I usually got some low bass stuff going on and I know if you plug a bass into a guitar amp it'll blow the speakers so I'm assuming that'd be the case here but I'd just like to verify.

It isn't the frequencies of a bass that blows the speaker, it's the attack. So really, it depends on how this bass of which you speak is generated.

Well, is it a recording of an actual bass guitar, a synth pad, detuned guitar, etc?

If they are really percussive you could be in trouble. ie something that is a sample of a Precision bass being slapped and/or popped you could be in trouble, if it's a sample of an upright bass or a strings section you'd be fine. It's all about the attack.

Watch your speaker. If it looks like it's trying to jump out of the box, stop.
