I'm worried I'm being biased here, because this is my favorite Wolfmother song both musically (ignoring rhyming 'ordinary' with 'extraordinary' in the first couplet) and to play in the game.
But I think it's probably the strongest Wolfmother bass, and a very enjoyable one in general. The verse rhythm is largely HO/POs and moves around the fretboard, and never sticks around long enough to get old fast to me.
The chorus is more than just sustains, and in fact all the choruses not only have various short HO/PO flourishes in them, but each one has a different one, which is really cool.
Then we have the build-up part, which is all HO/POs, awesome, and lasts the exact right length of time. I'm not going to be about to describe without saying the chart, so here goes (by memory, might be a bit off): G R Y R Y B Y B O R Y B Y B O B. Yeah, it's pretty great to play, I'm not gonna lie.
The part that makes me hesistant to five-star this is the guitar solo, where the bass is reduced largely to long sustains, then to the verse rhythm again, followed by a final chorus with a less prominent bass part. But I think it's short enough to not bump it down, especially considering the song returns to the build-up part for the end.
As I said, I really like this (upstrummable!) song, so take this with a bit of a grain of salt, but at the same time I feel like I can objectively say most bassists would feel they got their money's worth out of this song.
