* Every member of Music/DaYoopers who has been a bassist has gotten at least one turn on lead vocal (in order of appearance: Jim Pennell, Joe [=DeLongchamp=], Doc Bradbury, Reggie Lusardi). Most notably, [=DeLongchamp=] wrote the title track to their third album ''Camp Fever'', and Bradbury sang "Grandpa Got Run Over by a Beer Truck", one of their {{signature song}}s. And in an inversion, Jim Bellmore (who took over lead guitar and songwriting duties from Joe Potila in 1995) also played bass on ''We're Still Rockin''' due to it falling between Bradbury's departure and Lusardi's joining, and Bellmore usually continued to play bass in-studio while Lusardi usually only served as touring bassist.

* John Rich was originally a Type B in Music/{{Lonestar}}, where he traded lead vocals with Richie [=McDonald=]. Lonestar has not had an official bassist since Rich was fired in 1998; several different bassists have backed them on the road without being counted as official members, and they usually use a session musician in the studio. Although Rich no longer plays bass, he has become a Type C for his work as one-half of Big & Rich, as well as several songwriting and production credits.

* Rodrigo González from German punk rock band ''Die Ärzte'' who is both type A and B. This is justified since all three members write and sing their own songs (Rod plays guitar while singing his). Farin Urlaub and Bela B. - the founding members - also like to point out that he is a virtuoso bassist. But the thing Rod is probably best known for is sitting hours at a time during interwiews and [[SilentPartner not say a single word]].
