If you know the name of the bassist in a band you're definitely a fan of that band!
@Iron Poodle, the top one is Nickolai Fraiture
@Iron Poodle, except fallout boy. I know the bass player's name but not the lead singer's.
@Iron Poodle, Charles trippy
@Iron Poodle, Shavo from SOAD, dudes crazy :P
@Iron Poodle, John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin, Geezer Butler from Black Sabbath, John Entwistle from the Who. All amazing bass players.
@Iron Poodle, Johnny Christ from Avenged Sevenfold :D
@THE WONDER BONER, I was thinking the same thing
@Iron Poodle, protest the hero, Ari. He is the greatest bassist I've heard, he has a solo in without prejudice and it is incredible.
@Iron Poodle, mark hoppus from blink-182
@Iron Poodle, Pheonix from Linkin Park, Justin Chancellor from Tool, Geddy Lee from Rush, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers
@Iron Poodle, Flea. I'm not a big RHCP fan but I know his name.
@The Wise Stoner, you mean patrick stump? :D
@Iron Poodle, I'm a Zeppelin fan, so John Paul Jones :D
@Iron Poodle, you know I love imagine dragons, but I really don't know any of their names
@Iron Poodle, none of u will know this, he's just part time and is a full time dad, but Andrew/Andy from The Billies and The Sound of Simon
@The Wise Stoner, everyone knows Pete Wentz. MCR bass is Mikey Way
@Iron Poodle, Joshua Woodard from A Day To Remember
@Iron Poodle, rush doesn't count. You all know why.
@AntisocialBear, me too! :D
@Modern Age, love your comment and name
@Iron Poodle, mike dirnt from green day
@Iron Poodle, Gene Simmons from KISS
@Iron Poodle, who doesn't know Flea?!
@Iron Poodle, ooor, you're definitely a fan of google.
@Iron Poodle, I know so many bassists. Bands and funnypics are my life so....
@Iron Poodle, whoops just noticed this picture is old as butts. My bad
As a bass player, unfortunately, I can confirm this.
@maurin, I'm a bass player too, and I'd prefer not to be recognised :P
@Truck Norris, We should form a band of just Bassists.
Hey guys I just finished watching the Dr. Who episode where he has a daughter. So I was looking up the daughter, for reasons, and it turns out that she and David Tennant are married. So she played her husbands daughter.
@Aang the Avatar, and she is also the daughter of the 5th doctor, not to mention she also went to school with another doctors daughter. So technically, the doctors daughter, played the doctors daughter, who then married the doctor and had the doctors daughter. Timey Wimey.
@Aang the Avatar, looked her up for what reasons? Cause i did too cause she's pretty hot
@BeccaElizabeth, On top of that, she and David had a daughter. So the Doctor's wife is also the Doctor's daughter, and the Doctor's daughter is also the Doctor's granddaughter. Confused?
This is true... Except Flea. Everyone knows about flea.
If anything, I always see people not give any attention to the drummer
Except that there's a picture of Flea...who is the star of the band
Streetlight Manifestos bass player is one of the best I've ever heard. Please look them up when you get a chance.
No John Paul Jones?
I did it, because the band wouldve gotten a jew if i didnt join. Badumbadumdumdum
I play bass, but I have boobs, so that tends to get me attention. Having boobs sucks. People don't even know what instrument I play. I'd rather be ignored.
@PeenWentz, But a girl with a bass makes her hotter (actually no matter what position in a metal band)
@Lucidor, technically I'm genderfluid, not a girl, so that usually turns people off. But yeah, on girl days I tend to get hit on by guys, but I like girls, so I still lose xD
@PeenWentz, but bi and lesbians would probably agree with me too. Everyone geta hotter if they are rockstars, even people that just playing an instrument fairly good at a party increase their hotness instantly
@Lucidor, well, I suppose there's hope for me yet. I must admit, I have a soft spot for band gals, but I always assumed that was just because I liked music
@PeenWentz, That's a better way to think, yes it does help if they play good music, but you are most certain playing some music that girls like
@PeenWentz, starts writing comment about pete wentz and his terrible bass playing*
I always find the bass players to be the hottest guys in the band.
@Colleen4, Doris is the hottest in Chthonic, Samdra is hottest in Equilibrium and SatAnica is hottest in Hysterica. Just giving you a few examples
Flea is lead bass. Funniest dude around!
What about Hysteria by Muse? Chris always goes up front for that one
Where's Cliff? Ellefson, Harris, Geezer, Newsted, Lomenzo,
@Lars Ulrich, what about the person who rethought the technique for playing bass Jaco Pastores
@Lars Ulrich, Don't you dare forget Robert Trujilo.
@Lars Ulrich, how about any ska bassists?
@Mega Nerd 99, what about Victor Wooten that dude is amazing.
@Mega Nerd 99, or Paul McCartney
@unassuming local guy, yes him too I wanted to say him but I didn't want to seem like a know it all
@Mothra, I wanted to say him but I didn't want to seem like a know it all
He is what brings a deeper melody in tune.
My dad plays bass, FINALLY SOME RECOGNITION!
As a bassist this is pretty damn true
Flea is not a watchful protector.
But everyone knows Flea.
Top 4 bass players will always be, in no particular order, geddy lee, les claypool, cliff, and flea.
I'm pretty sure this is one of those pics that like two people will laugh at.
@shadow3055, it's not really funny, but a bass player would appreciate it
@pimpinpenguin, we do
One time I tried to hear the bass in a song so I turned it up really loud and my mom was all like "IT SOUNDS LIKE YOURE MAKING OUT IN THERE, THERE BETTER NOT BE A BASSIST IN THERE"
Cliff from Metallica that is all
FINALLY, IM LOVED.
This had so much potential, but then the second panel killed it with the bad grammar
I play the bass and I need frickin recognition!!!!!
Squealed like a little girl when i saw John Lyung in the picture! He's one of the best bass players of all time for one of my favorite bands of all time! Long live Dream Theater!
That is the first time i've ever seen The Strokes on this app! It has made my day, they are my favourite band
Guys can someone tell me hqo to upgrade to Pro I got the ITunes but don't know how.
Hey guys. This is a bit off topic, but what's the address for the Funnypics Minecraft server? My boyfriend just recently got me into it.
So, would this be: the dark bassist drops?
Matt Novesky, yo
In most of my favorite bands I love the bass players! ^_^
My older brother plays bass, electric bass guitar to be exact
honestly it's true, music sounds so empty without a bass player
At least bass players get SYMPATHY -Jax885, Drum Expert
I don't know anything about Christopher Nolan, but the fact that he isn't talking to Barbara in this scene tells me he was a middle child. "Hey chris, you know Barbara is the second most famous gordon-" "SHUT UP! JIM HAD OTHER KIDS!"
You can just TELL us you're the bassist of a band, OP
I've been thinking about this, and I've realised that in most bands there is usually only one or two members that people care about. One is usually always the frontman, the second always seems to be
@PeenWentz, random. Everyone else is ignored by the majority E.g. All Time Low- Jack Barakat and Alex Gaskarth- guitar and vocals/guitar. Fall Out Boy- Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump- bass and vocals/guitar. The Summer Set- Jess Bowen and Brian Dales- drums and vocals. Slipknot (difficult, but from what I've seen mostly) - Joey Jordison and Corey Taylor- drums and vocals.
Bassists are often the brain behind the band, just look at Maiden, Motörhead, Manowar, Cannibal Corpse and even Nergal played bass in the early Behemoth days
Ema Anzai: hottest bass player ever.
@Antclift1, I dunno, LynZ Way is pretty damn nice
I do concur with the statement of this picture.
My dad is a bass player and awesome at it
I think everyone knows at least two bass players. For me it's flea and Gene Simmons from KISS
A real juke box hero
