Okay, I know that this sort of thread has been done but I don't think there has been any recently.

Well, I need some good songs. I know that Gorillaz is a favorite but most of their stuff is too easy. So far the best song I could think of is the intro to Like the Angels by Rise Against but I need more songs to work on. I like punk, rock, and metal (any type). I still can't play slap so please no Flea unless theres no slapping and popping (which is almost always the case).

So what are some good songs?

Tonnes of muse stuff, quite challenging for beginner/intermediate but that's a good thing in my eyes. Try Plug In Baby or Hysteria if you're good enough. Starlight or sunburn or something if you're not...

I love them but their bass lines tend to be a bit boring. Try some led zeppelin too, most of their songs have awesome bass lines

Peaches and Regalia by Frank Zappa. Easy to finger, but hard as hell to play up to speed. It has some really fun syncopation as well.

On Blood to Bleed, how do I play both of the strings at once? Do I just pluck them with separate figures or what?

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

what's my age again, it has the most simple but fun bass line. polly by nirvana has a short bass solo which is pretty cool.
when im with you, there's nothing I wouldn't do, i just wanna be you're only one. im gasping out of straws, taken aback by what i saw that night before when we were all alone...

Interpol and The Strokes have a lot of good stuff. Fun to play.

Green Day - Longview
Green Day - Warning

I like those two basslines...

Jack Johnson - Upside Down has a quite soft and nice bassline aswell, even though it's not very metal. :P

plush - STP

havana affair- RHCP

EDIT: Wait I was thinking of Lost Wthout You - John Petrucci, I like the bass in that song, and plus it has a little solo as well.

Everything by Pixies have dead easy bass lines that are dead catchy too.
