Hey, my mate has recently taken up bass, and a few of us have got a band going.

Any suggestions for popular songs we could cover which have a very prominent bass line, an easy one ideally.

Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes is the best one I can think of. Vocals might be a bit of a challenge though.
Dance, Dance bye Fall Out Boy
You won't find much love for them here though.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

seven nation army - white stripes

Just to help the way my band does it is:

Chorus:bass + guitar
solo: Guitar (obviously) but the bass plays the main riff

same as above^^
