What you need is someone strong to use you

I love how ppl comment on Maynard's early work about how it is self righteous and only drug orientated. This was a time in Maynard's life where he was still finding himself. He had an extremely anachronisti c view on the world and his music reflected that at the time. If you really knew who he was you would know that he does not perform his early work in any of his concerts now. Not to say his early work is not good I think it is great but his views on life has just become different... . . . More r

While I am Christian, popularity has nothing to do with whether you believe in Jesus or not. I mainly listen to metal because it's edgy, and often I agree with the lyRics. And it doesn't mean I don't believe in Jesus. Now let's quit talking about religion, this isn't a forum!

Tool is the s**t!

If you told me that your friend walked on water, i would laugh and take you to a hospital psych ward. Jesus might have been a dude, but just a dude.

Matt why do you listen to the inglorious genre of Metal and all of her b**tard sub genres? Because here in the the void of metal... we don't really like jesus...

Matt you dumb f**k. Popularity doesbt mean real. Odin was super F**kin popular with my ancestors.

Jesus Christ is real. Everyone wants to discredit him but he's the most popular person ever walked this earth. No one ever talked about anyone more. Must be a reason. Wake up
