Audacity provides the facility to filter the audio stream - IF you only want the bass line this may help you but your going to have to experiment.

That's another valid approach to try, if you don't need any of the frequencies near those of the voice.

The best you're going to do, as an amateur, is to invert the phase of one of the stereo channels, then mix them together. *IF* the lead singer is in the center of the stereo image, this will cancel them out (along with anything else that the engineers placed at that location). If they're a bit off center you may have to tweak the relative levels of the two channels before you get that cancellation. If there's something more complicated going on with how their voice is being handled... there's probably nothing you'll be able to do to achieve this result.

In that case, see if you can find an existing karaoke recoding of the song. Or give up and get some friends together to re-perform it minus the vocals.
