Typically at this point its split down the middle with people responding either...

a) This is stupid and irritating

b) Shut up Maynard is a genius

I don't care much about the videos but I will be going to see Tool live. I have never had the chance to see them. This band is responsible for getting me into metal so I cannot pass this up.

Now Playing: "Batcat" by Mogwai

uhh...they WERE playing a song,Korn,just not the entire song....and Maynard was most likely not the filmer. The band often practices without him during writing and before tours. My guess is that Blair was behind the camera.

People who find Tool so intriguing obviously haven't taken the time to dig deep into the world of music. Mass advertisement and record/ticket sales don't make your band talented, even if a few members are well trained musically.

Wow... "Chains" and "S_B" have reset the ignorance bar. It's now much lower than it was 10 minutes ago. When you two get a fvcking clue don't bother letting us know about it because the metal community has already given up on you and finds your mere existence to be a joke. Not a very funny joke either. Overrated? Not talented? BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

the day that tool loses their IMMENSE talent and originality and becomes 'mundane', is the very day that none of us will ever live to see

but of course, i've really never dug deep into music, and am a regular 'mass advertisement' (?) fvcking junkie :)

I was wondering when BG1 would jump on this. It's almost a compliment to get such a reaction to a cheesey little bit from their studio...whether positive or negative.

Post 40-"even if a few members are well trained musically" Few implies more than 2...it's a 4 piece band...so who's the dud? Why am I even bothering?
