    Growing up, Tool fans were always that weird subgroup between metalhead, Wax Trax kids, and goth. Can't speak for myself but I know vav and domtronzero are two of the least bro-y people I've met.

    Cool, I also enjoy some jazz.

    The worst thing about Tool is Tool fans. They're by-and-large an insufferable group of pretentious fuckboys. Srs.

    I wouldn’t describe their fans as bros either. I actually like Tool quite a bit, just don’t think they are worthy of...being a topic of heavy discussion?

    The fuck is wrong with jazz?

    I think the issue with tool is the crossover. They were wildly popular for a number of years and I think I that during that time their audience was pretty diverse. Tons of meat heads loved tool where I grew up, along with tons of music guys. They were complex and tight enough for the music fans and aggressive and angsty enough for the bros.

    I mean, I like tool, but I'm no huge fan. I even ended up with a copy of lateralus months before it's official release (it made for a great party that night). I get their appeal, but that was the last of their stuff I actually sat down and listened to.



    I would have answered 'giant steps' to the amazing and complex question.

    Ha!

    Giant Steps is TOO complex. Back when I listened to CDs, I bought the mobile fidelity audiophile version or whatever, hoping it would help my mind not explode when listening.




    Didn’t work.

    Lol. Fair enough. Great song though. Have you seen the vox video about it?

    Pretty sure I've posted this previously.

    And obviously they brought CRJ into a discussion about Coltrane.

    Clearly I was left out because lurchingbeast thinks I’m a total fucking bro bag.

    I've never actually met you. I've been bro-catfished by cool internet kids before.

    I ended up in an old Sammy Hagar music rabbit hole after seeing him in concert last weekend. Couldn't be happier.

    I'll move over the the unpopular beliefs thread.

    I love Tool. I love Rush. I enjoy Meshuggah and Battles. CRJ can suck it.

    I love Tool. Not a bro.

    I love metal.

    I like Rush as well.

    I also love hip hop and charcuterie.

    How should I feel about myself right now?
