have so much more wattage than guitar amps. Are they extremely loud or is there no purpose for it?

Bass needs more wattage to amplify the lower frequencies. Something like a 100 watter to a guitarist sounds insane, but to a bassist, well, it's not so much.

All that is true, but you may read a tube guitar amp as if it were solid state, which would make the wattage a lot lower than a solid state bass amp. Just a little mis read while skimming could do that, but none the less, more watts for lower sounds

Yea. Some pros use an 8x12 cab or a 4x15 sometimes. More volume needed for how low those basses are.

well I saw a 1000W head in a magazine and was like "woah...could that be louder than a marshall full stack?"

What Becky first said, and apparantly, in the bass world, SS is rated more over valve, so the wattages would be slightly higher anyway

Keep in mind, bass amps with tube POWER sections are not the ones you seen putting out 1000+ watts. Most "valve" bass amps are in the 300w range. Ones with tube PREAMPS, go much higher.
