4+ stringed instrument that, should there be no Entwistle or Claypool for the current generation, will forever be associated with boring types who just wanna be in a band and down low in the mix
Ya know, all bassists weren't nerds in a high school jazz band. Long Live The Rickenbacker!

origin: bad (english) and ass (english)

a bastardization of those words, non-superlative version of "bad ass" as in
1) extremely good/pleasing
2) impressive

A four string guitar that is several octaves lower than a guitar. It is more commonly played with your fingers than a pick. Also, bassers (more commonly known as bassists) are usually the weird ones in the band.

They are also usually quieter and calmer than guitarists and drummers. And can therefore usually be pushed around more easily.
Guitarist Chick: Let me straighten your ridiculously curly hair!

Basser Dude: NO!

Guitarist Chick: Pleeeeease...

Basser Dude: Okay, fine.

The instrument played by the member of the band who is the second least attractive and can only crow about the quality of groupies they defile to the drummer, who traditionally can only get the kind of beasts even farmers reject.
Roadie 1: "Have you seen the girl the bass player was taking back to the tour bus? Isn't the drummer in there too?"
Roadie 2: "That was a girl? Jeez, what the hell did the drummer pull then?"
Drummer: "Does anyone have the number of a good vet? There's been an accident."
