Toy has a cool bass riff. So does Let It All Be and The Bloat.

I have to go with Toy as my favorite.

Those are all good ones.

I like Kevin's crazy slide bass in Dr. Geek.

I will have to ponder this question awhile and get back to it later.

If I Had An Excorcism, especially the part after the 'one note silence'. Tipping The Lion has a clever bassline. I have always liked Buzz's basslines like Sky Pup and June Bug. I've always liked the bass on POTRE quite a bit - wild and free.

I really like Shevil.

It's a good sign for the band if everyone has very different preferences.

I always thought that was bass guitar wankery.

I'd go with Kevin's bass in "Let It All Be".....that is some gangster shit.

june bug was the first thing that popped into my mind
I have brought the great ball of crystal;
            Who can lift it?
Can you enter the great acorn of light?
But the beauty is not the madness
Tho' my errors and wrecks lie about me.
 And I am not a demigod,
 I cannot make it cohere.

MANKY Hiding behind Buzz's guitar riff is one behemoth of a bass line.

And the bass line in JUDY is better than anything Mark D ever did with the melvins. Thank you and goodnight!
