* In the case of the ''Music/GratefulDead'', they managed to avert this trope with bassist Phil Lesh, who not only was a beloved member of the Grateful Dead, but became their leader in many ways after Jerry Garcia passed away. In fact, after the band's disbanding, many people said that he put on the most successful shows outside The Dead of any of the other members.

* Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of ''Music/LedZeppelin'' reunited in 1994 for an Unplugged concert without even telling their former bassist John Paul Jones. Jones would go on to [[TooSoon joke about this one year later at Led Zeppelin's Hall of Fame induction ceremony of all things]], much to the [[DudeNotFunny awkward looks of Page and Plant]].
-->'''John Paul Jones''': Thank you, my friends, for finally remembering my phone number.

* Invoked with Ako in ''MahouSenseiNegima'', who struggles with worries that she is nothing but a minor character destined to live forever in the background (which, well, [[GenreSavvy is kinda true]]) and plays the bass in a high school rock band.

** One of the most famous examples of a song without a bass line is Music/{{Prince}}'s SignatureSong "When Doves Cry". When Prince started recording it it had one; however, he felt like the song was too generic with the bass line included, and took it out. The lack of a bass track has become a distinctive part of the song's sound.



* British duo Royal Blood are a complex case: their instrumental lineup is bass and drums (love the bassist!), but the bass is treated with effects pedals,and mostly sounds like heavy rock lead guitar. If you hear them on the radio, knowing only that they are a duo, you would probably assume that the bassist is the missing member.

** Compared to most genres of Metal or Punk, this is particularly common among {{Grindcore}} bands. Many of the most significant bands in the genre forego having any bassist. (Discordance Axis is probably one of the earliest examples.)
