    Let's just stipulate that any Pino bassline qualifies for inclusion on this thread!

    Then there is Victor

    I saw him in PDX with his brother on guitar

    Amazing performance and presentation.

    Isn't that the truth! I am in a blue trio that is just starting out and we want to do some Mayer stuff and I told them, "well don't expect no Pino on my playin'!"

    This is going to be a fun thread, sure to inspire my bass nerd enthusiasm. Lots of diverse styles to check out.

    I think you guys are being conservative in your interpretation of “filthy,” though. Zoom in:

    Weedeater’s Dixie Dave Collins goes for filthy tone as well; I think those Sunns are dimed:

    Nice try, Big Brother.
    EW is probably the heaviest band in existence. Whenever I think it might be someone else, I just listen to EW again to remind myself. Even the bands that try really hard to emulate their formula (Monolord for instance) somehow end up not sounding as heavy.

    Dixie smells like you think he'd smell from pics of him. Stale sweat, weed, and liquor. Nice guy though.

    I first saw that pic in a thread on Talkbass. I’d never heard of Weedeater before that, but was kind of impressed at the skanktacity of that bass, and also that it appeared to be a Squier Affinity P-bass, getting prime-time gig use, which I think is cool.

    That photo (and the tone, kinda) for me serve as inspiration to say screw it and let it rip, even if I am way tamer, more tentative and less rusty in real life.

    Did you see 'em when they were here a few years ago? I'm in StL with you. They played at Fubar and I had tinnitus for 48 hours after the show. The obnoxious F-U attitude is not an act. Haha. And yeah, Dixie played that exact same Squier P bass at the show.

    Here's a sleeper that probably doesn't come up often in discussions like this...

    Feeling emboldened by the doom metal already posted in this thread, so here's this. It's just a bass guitar. It's beautiful and actually one of my favorite bass instrumentals ever. It reminds me of something Cliff Burton would've written.

    There are a few good basslines by Jamiroquai. Here is Marta Altesa playing again, this time on a Jamiroquai tune.



    Because of her videos, she was seen by Jamiroquai and they hired her to play on their South American tour dates…
    She currently isn’t playing anymore to raise her kids. Props to her!!!

    Come My Fanatics and Dopethrone are definitely two of the heaviest records but I don't think I could pinpoint a heaviest band. Rigor Sardonicus, Corrupted, Noothgrush, even Eyehategod hit me really hard at certain times. And then we have the worlds of DSBM, funeral doom, slam/brutal death, war metal... It's not an easy task.

    Slabdragger brings the filthy bass as well. Perhaps the most underrated band I know.
