Melvins is mainly the drums, guitar and vocals for me, in that order, the role of the bass guitar is very obvious most of the times, with some exceptions there. If the question would be favorite drums/guitar/vocals, this thread would already be 10 pages long, but this one is a bit tougher. Ok, let's say Larry, that one rocks your balls off.

Mark D had alot of good basslines. Someone said Tipping The Lion--I concur.

The bassline in Sky Pup is great too.

Sky Pup     -   it's just so damn groovy and fun
The whole Bootlicker; especially Jew Boy Flower Head     -  I just love the bass on that album.
Judy     -  it's simply an awesome bass line.
Night Goat     -  simple but extremely intense
The Talking Horse     -  great bass, I like the somewhat hectic feeling to it
It's Shoved     -  bass and drums together make it so good
The Bloat     -  has always been one of my favorites off Stag
Eye Flys     -  slowly creeping, disturbing bassline.
POTRE     -  all different bass lines are great, I really like the sound

*edit:  add HAT to the list.  The bass sounds insane on HAT.  Damn, lists like this are too difficult...
Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

Centripetal core of soul sojourn the field vibrates to absolution. I climb toward the sun to breathe the universal.

Have you seen the bridge?  I ain't seen the bridge!  Where's that confounded bridge?!

Jew Boy Flower Head 

I was about to say that.

For me there's something special about the bass on HAT, there's some subtleties in there that are genius.

The Bloat. I actually think that the bass (in all eras!) is of most import.

A History of Drunks, You've Never Been Right for newer ones. One of those songs has a bass line that just pops out with the song. Real nice.

As for old ones....umm....all the ones you guys named?

Coming out of my usual lurkery to say it's a shame nobody mentioned the "bass line" (if you could call it that) during the verses of Black Stooges. That crazy dive-bomb thing with the slide. "dwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeorBOOOM"
Fuckin' killer it is...didn't even actually realize it was there until listening with headphones one day.
