Sometimes bass players can be the most under-appreciated member of a band. Just because a lot of songs don't have an outrageous bass solo doesn't mean bassists are any less important. A recent poll seems to share my sentiment and has named Muse's "Hysteria" the best bassline of all time.

MusicRadar (via NME) asked fans which song featured the greatest bassline and received about 10,000 answers. "Hysteria", from Muse's 2003 album Absolution, took top honors, beating the likes of Queen and Rush.

Other artists on the list include Metallica, Pink Floyd and Michael Jackson. You can check out the full top ten below.

Muse are currently in London working on their sixth studio album. It will be the follow-up to 2009's The Resistance and is expected to be out in late 2012.
