MusicRadar's The 25 Best Basslines of All Time

This chart is null: as clearly shown in the video above, Chris Wolstenholme is actually Muse guitar & synth player

Friday, 28th October, MusicRadar wrote: "This week has been all about bass on MusicRadar. In celebration, we asked you to nominate your favourite basslines of all time in an effort to crown the greatest bass performance in history. With approximately 10,000 of you voting in our poll, we can now present the top 25 rundown in full. The rules were simple - as long as the part in question was played by human hands on an electric or acoustic bass guitar or an upright bass then it counted. Electronic or synthesized basslines weren't eligible; we'll be looking at those at a later date
