    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    The post-punk era produced a lot of great bass-work. Bass and backing vocal here s by Graham Lewis.

    Sort of like The Police, Joy Division/New Order and The Cure, you could largely post most of their discography and not be wrong.

    A very important style of American music that is defined by a particular style of hard-driving bass line is Boogie-woogie. You can (and should) read about that style of bass line in its Wikipedia article. One of the first big boogie hits (and apparently the first one to refer to that style of music by that name) is "PineTop's Boogie Woogie", recorded in 1928. Although you can hear that original recording on Youtube, I prefer a modern recording by New Orleans R&B pianist Doctor John the Night Tripper, which really shows what boogie is all about:

    Another New Orleans R&B pianist who was noted for boogie-woogie was Fats Domino. Fats moved away from boogie in the late 1950s to become a pioneer of a new musical style called Rock 'n' Roll (although he always insisted that it was just the same old R&B that he had always been playing). When playing rock, Fats Domino always kept a boogie-influenced hard-driving bass line, though. On the "White Album", the Beatles emulated that style of Rock music on a tune they wrote called "Lady Madonna". Fats Domino himself later recorded the song and had a hit with it, in a fine example of the musical cycle of life. Anyway, here's the Beatles original:

    As others have said, Peter Hook is the god of basslines.
