pop punk songs with good basslines

hi guys, i've recently started a pop punk band at uni, and whilst the stuff we've been writing has sounded good and been fairly challenging the covers we've practiced are boring as anything. a monkey could play my part. so does anyone know any pop punk/ indie songs that haves decent basslines that i could suggest? cheers guys

Not sure if they're totally 'pop-punk' but some Brand New has decent basslines, Sic Transit Gloria comes to mind for sure, maybe some of their other stuff.

in pop punk you're not gonna find many challengings songs seeing as thats not the purpose of pop punk. that said try some rufio maybe or NOFX.

Good basslines = hard basslines?

the thread starter said he wanted more challenging songs, he implied that these were better, why are you quoting incubass and not the TS jody.

Not sure if it's pop punk or indie, but Rancid has some good basslines. Matt Freeman is a hell of a bassist.

Same here, I was just connecting with the conversation.

I like Ants of the Sky the most because it has the heaviest part on the album, which goes into the Dream Theater-esque breakdown around 2:30 (I think) and that jazz guitar solo and that amazing country-hoedown part. The acoustic guitar solo in that section of the song is quite impressive too.

Ants of the Sky > all, of course.
Sun of Nothing can hold it's own in a cage match though.

Definitely! After the large clean part he is screaming "floating, floating" and then in a clean voice he whispers "away!" and then they play those epic powermetal chords and go back into the heavy parts.

Oh my god that album just makes me orgasm more than the I-Doser songs.

Ah I got mixed up... the part I was thinking of isn't before the DT thing.

I'm listening right now to get the exact time when that part comes...

What I think is the heaviest part is 3:09-3:35.

Good pick good pick

that part is heavy but 8:23 is just so slow and powerful and epic and dissonant and
