The Best Bass Riff Ever?
The ever insightful OHara has taken issue with my statement that the bass line from Fleetwood Mac's The Chain is the best ever. She may be right.

So let's have your nominations for the title of "best bass riff in the history of music". Rock, jazz, classical, reggae, R&B, folk or techno: all music categories accepted (except Rap which doesn't count as music IMNSHO).
