OK, so we all know that there are songs that all guitarists know (Stairway, Smoke On The Water, Blackbird, etc.) My question is, are there any songs that you think all bassists just know? The ones I can think of are probably Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Enter Sandman, Master Of Puppets, etc. Any others?

Iron Man and Money, or atleast their intros.

I think white people are better than black people.
While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

Money!
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?

money, smoke on the water, give it away, iron man, stuff like that.

I basically taught myself how to play bass on smoke on the water, iron man, and money. give it away is there cause it is probably the easiest chili peppers bass song, and I am currently listening to it

I don't know any of the Metallica ones.

I'm not sure. Most people 'know' at least one RHCP tune.

Money. And if you dont shoot yourself now!
Dazed and confused, or at least the intro bass line.
Everyone that plays ANY instrument has at least tried to play smoke on water.
And probably the War Pigs intro.
