Everybody loves Whipping Post, but what others songs start with a beautiful thumping bass line.

I really love cranking the sh#t out of this baby....

Nice, I dig those, I'm almost drawing a blank as those were obvious choices, Another great starter (tho ild) is James Gang's Woman. The song itself rocks a lot harder than bass intro, but them Jim Fox drums and high hat are spot ON!

Drums come in at the same time as the bass in these two, but two songs that lead with some really grooving bass are "So This Is Love" by Van Halen and also "Stratus" by Billy Cobham with Tommy Bolin (Leland Sklar on bass).

Good ones w/Post the obvious one - not that itís a Ďstandoutí, but I love I-Illness & Otielís driving intro
Speaking of Oteil, his very affecting intro to Three Views of a Secret, from the excellent 2005 or so Jaco Pastorius Big Band CD, The Word Is Out!

Great calls so far. So This is Love is my favorite Van Halen song. Running with the Devil is a pretty iconic bass opening, too.

Interesting topic and many good examples. The first one that came to my mind was Badge by Cream.

One of These Days

Too Rolling Stoned

Jump in the Fire

Live Wire

Peace Sells But Who's Buying

Dive & Lounge Act by Nirvana

Black No 1 by Type O Negative pretty cool

I used to listen to punk rock as a kid, they always had some cool ones. Dead Kennedy's Holiday in Cambodia and California Uber Alles (accompanied with drums) are good. Black Flag's Six Pack. God Saved the Queen by the Exploited was one of my favorites.

It must be 30+ years since I listened to the Exploited but this song still sounds pretty bad ass
