Tool

Tool's greatest breakthrough was to meld dark underground metal with the ambition of art rock. Although Metallica wrote their multi-sectioned, layered songs as if they were composers, they kept their musical attack ferociously at street level. Tool didn't. They embraced the artsy, bohemian preoccupations of Jane's Addiction while they simultaneously paid musical homage to the relentlessly bleak visions of grindcore, death metal, and thrash. Even with their post-punk influences, they executed their music with the aesthetic of prog rock, alternating between long, detailed instrumental interludes and lyrical rants in their songs.

Tool had a knack for conveying the strangled, oppressive angst that the alternative nation of the early '90s claimed as its own. So, Tool were able to slip into the definition of alternative rock during the post-Nirvana era, landing a slot on the third Lollapalooza tour in 1993, which helped their first full-length debut album, Undertow, rocket to platinum status. By the time the band delivered its belated follow-up, Ænima, in 1996, alternative rock had lost its grip on the mainstream of America, and Tool's audience had shaped up as essentially metal-oriented, which meant that the group and the record didn't capture as big an audience as their first album, despite debuting at number two on the charts. After a co-headlining slot with Korn on Lollapalooza '97 wrapped up, Tool remained on the road, supporting Ænima until well into the next year.

During the band's usual extended hiatus between albums, Maynard James Keenan decided to use his downtime productively by forming a side project, dubbed A Perfect Circle. The band's 2000 debut, Mer de Noms, was a surprise hit, while the ensuing tour was a sold-out success as well. With Tool breakup rumors swirling, the band put the speculation to rest by re-entering the recording studio and issuing the stopgap B-sides/DVD set Salival late the same year. Finally, May 2001 saw the release of Tool's third full-length release, Lateralus, which debuted at the number one position on the Billboard album chart and became the band's biggest hit. After the obligatory several-year sabbatical to pursue other projects, the group returned with another chart-topper, 10,000 Days, in 2006. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato, Rovi

Hey fattypatty, I bet that racist POS Haohmaruofth e q u e e r would whip yo a** with a pair of nunchucks. I'd watch out if I were you
Good motherf**ker stay gone
I doubt Maynard is gay, as if it matters, but even so I doubt he would want you here if that's how you feel, hopefully you'll lose your intolerance through time.
The singer is gay ? i may not come here anymore if it's true. Faggots.
Gkollenborn1 I read that Tool isn't on iTunes bc they sell their music as a piece of art & if u only buy Sober you won't get to experience Intolerance. If you by 46&2 you won't get to feel Hooker w/ A Penis and so on. Also that they told the iTunes Man FAH-Q you can't tell me what to do w/ my music. That's just one more percentage of possible income going to someone who knows s**t about music.
Nicko baby shoulder deep. Next time I'll bring the crisco! Please douche first next time! !!
This is, hands down, my favorite tool song...
