What is the greatest bassline of all time?

UPDATE: The shortlist has been compiled and the voting has begun. Vote for the greatest bassline of all time in the poll below:

In a couple of weeks on MusicRadar we'll be launching a huge celebration of all things bass, and kicking things off, we'd like you to make your nominations for the greatest bassline of all time.

The rules are simple - as long as the part in question was played by human hands on an electric or acoustic bass guitar or an upright bass then it counts. Electronic or synthesized basslines aren't eligible; we'll be looking at those at a later date.

So, make your nominations here, via Facebook, or Twitter with the #greatestbasslines hashtag and we'll compile a shortlist and open the voting.
