    Default Metal songs with interesting bass lines

    What are some metal songs with bass lines worth studying? Whether quintessential staple patterns or innovative stuff that bring new tricks to the table

    Thx.

    Like the fool I am and I'll always be
    I've got a dream, I've got a dream
    They can change their minds but they can't change me
    I've got a dream, I've got a dream
    Oh, I know I could share it if you'd want me to
    If you're goin' my way, I'll go with you

    I liked the lines Ryan from Mudvayne played on LD50.

    Pretty much any Iron Maiden is worth digging into, as well.

    Don't know if it's considered metal, but one mustn't forget YYZ by Rush.

    I know some people don't consider them metal, but most things from Tool are interesting and fun to play, and Justin Chancellor's bass lines are just as important to their sound as anyone else in the band

    Warmoth Split Jazzmaster (Zhangbucker Crushbucker UOA5 splat, Cherrick tapped)
    Dunlop Crybaby
    MXR Custom Comp
    GFS Twin Overdrive
    Boss BD-2 Bluesdriver
    Blackstar HT-DISTX
    Seymour Duncan 84-40 (Weber Grey Wolf Light Dope)
