Do you enjoy dogs being tickled by a human? Who doesn’t! Well, once upon a time there was a Tumblr craze of picking a world class bass player and Photoshop them playing fury canines instead of bass guitars! If you think it sounds weird, just check out how strange it really looks(see more Bass Dogs here)…

“If you like to gamble, I tell you I’m your man. You win some, lose some, it’s – all – the same to me”. Lemme’s the bassist for the band Motörhead for those of you who are wondering – not our kind of band, but quite a few people do like them. We feel he could have gone with a meaner looking bass dog really.

Paul Rudd is the man! If you haven’t watched the movie I Love You, Man then what are you doing with your life? If you have: “ASLAPPA DA BIASSSSSAAAH!”

Nikki Sixx Dog Bass

Mötley Crüe bassist, Nikki Sixx, can be seen jamin’ out on one of the worst bass dogs going. Who are these people paring up bassists with awful bass dogs? Also, as if none of you photoshop experts didn’t get one of the bass player’s hands on the dog’s…bits.

Steve Harris Playing Dog Bass

If you can’t name any bassist on this list then no worries – no one remembers the bassist. But you should at least know of Steve Harris and know he’s from the metal band Iron Maiden? If you don’t, shame on you, our friends.

Sid Vicious Playing Dog Bass

Sid Vicious was the bassist for The Sex Pistols and he sadly passed away in 1979. I was never into the punk scene so can’t really comment on his playing ability, but when you’re making money who cares how hard your basslines are? I just love the fact his bass dog has a Mohawk.

John Taylor Playing Dog Bass

Who doesn’t like a little bit of Duran Duran? Hungry Like The Wolf? Girls on Film? The band have some classics and John Taylor has written some really catchy lines for the band. He’s also got the coolest looking bass dog out of everyone on this top ten list.

Gene Simmons Playing Dog Bass

Gene Simmons, what can we say about you! Well, you were overrated as a bass player, your reality TV show sucked, and your online slots nearly bankrupt me. But Kiss was a huge band in the ’70/80s.

Geezer Butler Playing Dog Bass

If you’re a bassist or you enjoy a bit of bass then check out some of Black Sabbath’s bassists Geezer Butler basslines. The guy was no Larry Graham or Billy Sheehan, but his basslines are good.

Bernard Edwards, Bass Dog

Look at the look on the dog’s face. As you can tell, he clearly is very happy to get his belly tickled. In fact, the whole band look like they are having a right old laugh!

Phil Lynott the Bass Dog

Phil Lynott and his classic hair make this bass dog pairing even more fun to look at. Especially with the dog getting a perm just for the occasion.

Why hasn’t anyone made Mark Hoppus playing a dog bass? We think someone should get on that!
