Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

I'd like to add an honourable mention, the whole of RATM's first album.
Although not technically difficult, it shows how well bass works in a band.

more to be different than because I have anything against metal, I'm going to add some less metal orientated answers. These are also mostly pretty simple, but that doesn't mean they're not accomplished works of bass genius. I mean isn't it harder to be brilliant with 5 notes than brilliant with 50?

Radiohead- Nude, paranoid android.
The Stone Roses- I am the ressurection, She bangs the drums.
Talking Heads- Psycho killer. (ridiculously simple, but more catchy than any other bassline I've ever heard)
Nirvana- Lounge act, Dumb.
Joy division- Transmission, she's lost control.
James Brown- Funky Drummer pts 1&2, Cold Sweat.
The Jam- Going Underground, Town Called Malice.
Guns n Roses- Sweet Child Of Mine. (especially the intro)
Chemical brothers- block rockin' beats
The Clash- (White man) in Hammersmith Palais, London Calling.
The Who-I can't stress enough how important this band is, so really anything will do.
Opeth- Windowpane (ok, i said no metal, but this is off Damnation, so it's not really metal... technically)
Muse- Anything off Absolution.
"I hope I die before I get old"-Words of Pete Townsend, 1945-

"I hope I die before I turn into Pete Townsend"-Words of Kurt Cobain, 1967-1994

Funny old world eh.

Level 42 - Mr Pink

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Plush - Stone Temple Pilots

Apolo I: The Writing Writer - Coheed and Cambria

A Certain Shade of Green - Incubus

Man in the Box - Alice in Chains (The chorus has nice bass lick)

Those are a few

Really basic one, but "Is This It?" by The Strokes has a really awesome, catchy bassline. Dead simple to play but really bouncy and fun.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.
