If I had to guess I would say that half of bass players in metal bands today are making use of more than four strings ... so just check out tons of bands.

Also, if you're just looking to get used to the B string, there are ALOT of songs in metal that extensively use the open E string (or Eb or whatever its tuned to), so you can learn these songs except you use the B string to achieve these notes instead.
That way a song that is drop D for example you can learn without having to tune down.
I've got to admit though that some songs will be very diffcult with this method.

Destroy the box.

Mudvayne I believe uses a five. Been a while since I've seen them play live.

Rex Brown used to use a 4 string, but later on he started using a 5 string in the later Pantera records and with Down.

Ryan from Mudvayne at the moment is actually mainly using a 4 string.. but he was using a 5 on some of the older stuff, he switches between basses im sure..

Given the drop B and drop C tunings, I don't blame him for using a five.

And it's wonderfull to know you're alive Tattered.

Haha yeah, I can see how that could happen quite easily.

I like John Mayer, very nice stuff. He did a duet with aussie Pete Murray a while ago on tv, and his guitar work was just beautiful.
