I won't even post what I think the best band is.

Nobody here has the same taste in music as me. Or, I doubt they do anyway.

:/

They might not sound like the best to most people...but I hear them in a way nobody else can. I've been to see their live shows...I can't even count how many times. They were the best band in the world to me. I love the "raw" sound of bands like this, but these guys touched on something special for me.

It was during a time in my life when I was real confused...and the lyrics spoke to me like no others. Still do.

And, I can remember the energy of the shows...you wouldn't believe it. Much more of a rush than any drug has ever given me.

You suck!  I thought it was one of the best polls here.  It's good to have another tool fan around.  They are awesome!  I wish they would do another tour.  I should be saving up for it.  Last tour I had a guy stay with me that went to every show on the tour except the last one in LA.  what a summer that was for him i bet.

They're not bad man. That's what music is all about. Whatever YOU like. I like the band name too.

If you cannot appreciate tool and the music they've created then unfortunately your the only tool in here. They are a phenomenal band and their music has left a fucking crater mark on this planet.

Now whether they're the best? Obviously this something only the individual listener can decide... but to diss tool? That's like dissing Led Zeppelin.... or Metallica.... you simply cannot. They are good. End of discussion.

Go back to trolling forums you've been banned from.

I can tell you some problems that I have with them.  that's mainly in their live shows.  Last tour, the same setlist for every fuckin show!?  plus their lame ass commercial stance on tapers.  I also thought the 2006-2009 shows were pretty lame compared to those of 2002.  But then again, no show can compare to the last few dozen shows in 2002.  Was the first concert I ever went to.  It was simply amazing.  It was soo much more than just a couple of big screens on each side of the stage.  Here's a picture....

what don't you like hip hop ?
check this out.

the sound is newjack as all hell, but the lyrics are reminiscent of classic P.E.. Rap music hasn't been this political, subversive, angry, raw, proactive, meaningful, or protest oriented since the early 80's. This man should´╗┐ win an award for this. He's an advocate and a subvert, and that is quite refreshing in contrast to the hip hop mainstream trends of money, record deals, drug deals, and other meaningless content found on today's number 1 hits. Antavio Johnson, you're a true artist
