My friend and I were at Hot Topic one day and my friend saw this Tool shirt. One of their shirts that just says the band name. This is what happened...

Friend: Hey ha that shirt says "Tool"
Me: Yeah, it's a band
Friend: Ah ha wow that's a dumb name

So he's never heard of Tool and thinks that it meant the common insult calling someone a "tool"...

So...why exactly were you in Hot Topic?

Band shirts? Just looking. We're not gay though...

Dude, it's Hot Topic, it's where a lot of people get band shirts.

I guess if you want to sell a kidney to buy a shirt of your favorite band then that's your choice.
The person below me is probably a homosexual.

Tool really isn't a band worth recognising. What with their simple riffs, boring songs, and lack of creativity? I'd say they're not.

Lack of creativity? What are you retarded? Name one band before them that sounds like them.

See what I did there?

King Diamond's Andy Larocque is by far one of the greatest guitar players unlike Tool's.


By the way, it's my opinion. Learn to accept it.

It's kind of an ironic shirt if people who see you wearing it don't like them or have never heard of them.

Tool are overrated, and your friend is lucky since s/he hasn't had to hear them.



Now you're just aggravating us.

I did accept it, that's why I only argued your bit about no creativity.

I wouldn't wear a shirt that says "tool" on it. That's just asking for trouble.

This whole situation is very ironic i'd say....
Old king cole was a merry old soul, a merry old soul was he.
He called for his pipe, and he called for his bowl( ****ing stoner)
and he called information for numbers he could have easily looked up in the phone book.

simple riffs? maybe. so everything has to be technically amazing and ridiculously virtuoso to be good? they happen to have one of the best drummers of the modern era and probably the best and most original and creative vocalist in a modern rock band. maybe you should listen before bashing.

and to the TS who cares if your friend doesnt know tool? you probably dont know every band he does.

Maybe Tool doesn't care about their guitarist not playing at 3423523523 BPM?



+1 their music is based on overall sound and meaning, not a show-off fest.

BTW I guarantee Danny Carey would rape the drummer of what ever band he was talkin about.

You fail for going into Hot Topic.
Your friend fails for not knowing the best band ever.

Actually, I go to Hot Topic. Where else are you supposed to get band shirts?

lawlz at the Tool flaming

the guy is just trying to get people worked up over nothing, he is just stating his opinion, and he's only doing it because he knows everyone will get worked up over it. just don't acknowledge it anymore.

??? WTF?


he was talking about prog in general so yes hes right. Rush was an extremely progressive band that shares many similarities to tool and was way before them.

and to teufel i like king diamond too. we can all have varying tastes in music. no one has to like just one genre and just one band.
