Rancid has quite challenging basslines for punk.

Rancid: You Don't Care Nothin'
Rancid: Radio
A Wilhelm Scream: The Horse (has tapping if you like that)
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.

Check out some of The Offspring's older stuff where the bass is more pronounced (Self titled cd, Ignition, Smash) it's not really difficult, but IMO fun to play.

blitzkrieg bop... behind your back... with a knife as your pick.

that can be challenging.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

hardly challenging is it

Lightning Wentz is hard to mimic, I still haven't mastered the use of left hand muting all the other strings due to the might of my picking

Yeah, anything by The Offspring uses a pick. Me & My Old Lady has a cool bassline, and Dirty Magic especially.
#26
Anything by Anti Flag.

Check out "One Trillion dollars"

cheers!
You stole my Overture
#27
Unbreakable by Have Heart. It's a pretty decent line, even if it is just supporting the guit-boxes. Aja by The Ergs has a pretty tough line for a pop-punk song. Lastly, Runaway by Pulley isn't too hard, but it does sound pretty good.
#28
any anti-flag (the press corpse,911 for peace or i dont need anybody)
or lovecats by the cure !!!!!!!!

pretty much any AFI song has a decent bassline. My favorites are just the early ones.


Offspring's cover of Total Immortal is better, I think. But, I do agree with you about AFI's old basslines. Brownie Bottom Sundae and Cereal Wars are sweet. A lot of the tracks off of Very Proud of Ya are good, too. Then they had to stop being cool and turn severely gay... though Miss Murder is a good song with good bass.

Bah, Their cover made me cringe. Yeah, it really sucks, their new album blows. I actually liked Sing the Sorrow, but goddamnit AFI. To TS another pop-punk band with a good bassist is Paramore

Bad Religion has lots of good basslines, just not too challenging technique-wise
