I love all three of these bassits though, actually they would probably make up my favourite three punk bassists.

Add Tina Weymouth to that list (if you count early Talking Heads as punk) and we could be friends.
Nowhere near as gifted but a favourite all the same.

I would probably throw in some Kira Roessler into the mix too. Tina did have some pretty tasty, funky basslines.

Peter Hook?... Hmm, I guess you could call Jow Division and New Order punk, Tina Wayworth is decent, but nothing impressive, I'd put her on the same level as Roger Waters, Krist Novoselic, Duff McKagan and Noel Redding... Bassists who made some cool basslines, but nothing beyond that, and anyone should be able to advance to their level after months of practice... In fact, Tina was quite lacking in her abillities as a bassist, to the point that Byrne would have to play more complex bass parts or get other session musicians to do them because Tina was incapable of playing them.

Anywho, I just feel that Watt is the best... And I have to be honest, regardless of who it is, being the best Punk bassist shouldn't be exagerated as being some kind of amazing accomplisment, since most punk bassists are below average... Mike Watt, Matt Freeman, Peter Hook, JJ Burnel, Klaus Flouride, Dave Allen, Paul Simonon, Fred Smith, Charles Dukowski, Kira Roessler, Steve Garvey and Darryl Jennifer being the only primary exceptions I can think of.
