Ok, I'm going to pretend that this thread is about the best Punk bassist and then I'll ask "Do Joy Division count?" and you'll say "Well, their albums are closer to Post-Punk, but their earlier stuff as Warsaw is definitely Punk." and then I'll say "Well in that case, Peter Hook."

Notice post punk has the word punk in it, hence Joy Division is a punk band. I do agree somewhat with the choice though, he is a good bassist. Mike Watt is better however.

esp is pretty good, id have to agree on that one. mike d. from killswitch plays one of those. but i dont think hes that good of a bassist. mainly just playing open d, and whatever the guitarists play.

And I'd agree.

Although JJ Burnell of 'The Stranglers' takes some beating.
