>tool are for neckbeard losers
You didn't fall for this /mu/ meme did you anon?
I heard them before I heard the meme.
My thought is that it was for neckbeard losers.
Funny enough the first guy to show me a song from them had a neckbeard, and another neckbeard who had heard it seemed to like it as well.
I've seen a lot of neckbeards listen to lots of metal.
What if you like the way they sound. At the same time, you think their music might intentionally contain slightly cryptic messages, but you honestly dont care enough to sperg out about it like a neckbeard would? cuz same
I was just listening to them today and thinking about how ridiculous is is to write it off as neckbeard music.
It's some really good music. Neckbeards might like them, but so do a bunch of chill guys and good musicians.
Here's the main issues broken down for you, as a Tool fan:
1. People will complain that the fanbase sucks. On some level all fanbases suck because "muh favorite band is better than urs pleb." Although, I will agree, some Tool fans are insufferable, especially the people who will say "Maynard" in conversation like they're friends. Just as bad as fucking deadheads.
2. This guy >>61872974
Does the end of #1, and also makes the classic mistake of not recognizing sarcasm. None of Tool's lyrics are or sound "smarter than you".
If you believe that a song about shoving your arm up your own asshole to decry a lack of subtlety in modern society sounds "smarter than you," you're the one with the problem. The "Tool has deep lyrics" meme makes the fanbase seem worse, because anyone with half a brain realizes they're pretty straightforward.
3. People can't into different time signatures. Just basic fact, so some people will be turned off automatically.
4. The image they had back in the day was pretty fucking cringe.
Still bretty good.
maybe smarter-than-you isn't the right term to use. fedora or /r9k/ might fit the bill better
sorry for calling him by his first name I guess. I just don't particularly like the man
If that's what you call a neckbeard you need to brush up on your facial hair definitions. It's called I just got over the flu and haven't shaved in a few days.
Lol I don't believe you. Girls that hot don't chill on /mu/
>implying "soft rock drone fest" meme post wasn't a daily occurrence like a year and a half ago.
newfag as fuck
I prefer the side project, actually. Momma sed is the greatest song of all time.
For example, take Nirvana. (bear with me)
All the fans loved and went crazy for Smells Like Teen Spirit, when even the band itself admited it was a weak song and they had much better songs.
It's the same with tool, just go to a Parabol video in youtube and you'll see all the shitters spouting shit like "this is great for a yage session" "I'm enlightened" or try to post deep phylosophical stuff.
People are dumb.
