Mananatd is amazing shut the hell up
Maynard is a genius. Some of the meanings of the songs are kind of crazy, but at the same time deep and meaningful. As for the music, well, I don't have to say anything.
Tool needs 2 boot Maynard and make an instrumental record. Quit waiting 4 his dumbass 2 decide if he's wants 2 make music w the only band he will b remembered for. Maynard is on the same level as axel rose. He doesn't make the band..The band makes him
Holy
To quote tactical8 " new album please"
Meh, kind of a cult band :/ They're alright, havn't heard too much about them, though.
BOOOOOOM NinjaZzz Ha! Yea
New album please.
The absolute best show of all times!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
aaron , tha f**k ?
I also saw HTX show. Amazing.
chrsroc
I saw them in Houston, before they headed to AZ. Amazing show! Danny did a solo cover of King Crimson's B'BOOM!!
Tomorrow night. US Airways Arena. Phoenix!
I love the outro to this song....sooo o o heavy and dreamlike
They are music gods and I live vicariously through there music. It takes me to a hole different spectrum of life , death and ignorance.. I love you Maynard.
Moda Center tonight!
PDX
Ya.....the best s**t ever
Never thought of them that way, true though @chrisin8019
I was telling an older guy I work with about Tool & the best way I could think of to explain their music to him so he might understand was that their like a heavy Pink Flyod
My son turned me on to tool several years ago. Best thing he ever did. Maynard james keenan is a f**king genius!
aarongoch
Oooh prison sex... That's some good Christian entertainmen t right there. Wholesome, all American family fun!
Because NIN was same time period.. much better than Trent tho..
Awesome song and band, but why on nine inch nails radio? Odd, but still cool
Perfect!!
it is....mind over matter. Your mind tells you what to feel....but it's so much more than you'll ever know
I wish my pain was an illusion
A band of professional s
Awesome song - feeling it through out my body
Ya, Tool always a treat.
Shweeeeet :3 soo happy!! I love tool! It was a bit unexpected after a solid hour of Marilyn Manson, but wutevz :3
Past meets future!Stron g !
He's right masterpiece an of course genius love em¶¶¶¶™(TOOL ) ! ! ! ! !
tool is badass. all of their songs are wonderful
I know @redheadjack someone was using my account and decided to say that
Song kicks so much a**
Love the drums in this song.
@george, soundgarden IS legendary. everyone knows that
The art of it, is what should be examined... tool produces masterpieces , never mind yours or maynards religious preferences, or lack there of
Seriously sweetie go listen to skillet and pod
Just another angst ridden kid you say haha I haven't heard so much bullshit since someone told me soundgarden were legends.
He is a genius. I love this band. Anything he that he puts together with any band is a masterpiece. When tool first came out and sober is what hooked everyone, I know it defenitly got me Intrested to by undertow at age 17 and just rocked it. But when his second albulm hit in 1996 I was a lil older and actually listing and putting it tpgether. And respecting every other perfection after that. That Tool, APC, Puscifer. I've been to 4 Tool concerts and had backstage passes on the third one. It
genius
Tool is some amazing instrumental and I enjoyed being friends and manager of one the greatest Tool cover bands, but I have enough sense to know Maynard is a fool and he is way over his bounds with his blasphemy. If you think that there is no God, you are a complete imbecile and I don't need to preach about that. Look at us humans and the complexity of life and our life cycles!!! I don't have enough faith to be an atheist and Maynard is just another angst ridden kid angry at his over zealous fun

Tool !!nothing else to day
moongoddess2 6 5
this song is so spiritual I love this song awesome CD tool put out like having out of body experience when hearing this
Saw APC about 8 or 9 years ago and loved how technically perfect they sounded. I was thoroughly disappointed that Maynard hid behind a shower curtain the whole performance, though. Good stuff.
There is no life or death. We are all one connected force from which life exists and all of us are infinite energy spanning outward always moving.
Sell your soul. Satan is not what you perceive him to be. Christians and other religions lie about him to us. Believe it or don't. We don't really accept worthless souls but everyone counts, little by little. Follow to realize true godly power. Just as humans should've been by now. So check it out at your nearest retail store. Excuse me waiter, check please.
