Tool is an enigmatic Progressive Rock/Metal band known for their unconventional time signatures and rhythms, long songs and Mind Screw-tastic imagery. But there’s also a theme running throughout their music: personal interpretation of the lyrics.
This means that Tool is often more cryptic than they appear to be, and some of their songs have more complex meanings than others. They have always been a band who takes pride in their personal interpretation, which is why some of their lyrics are so difficult to decipher.
Some of Tool’s most well-known song titles have multiple meanings, and they have even made use of visual puns. Their logo for example features the words “Tool” written on a wrench with two sockets at one end.
Another Tool song that has many possible meanings is their classic hit, “Undertow.” It’s a very heavy and fast track. However, it’s also a very personal and emotional track.
It’s also a very good track, with plenty of crushing riffs and some great solos. It’s by far Tool’s best track, a masterpiece in my book.
The lyrics of this song are very strong, and the music is superb, which makes it a great Tool track. In fact, it’s probably my favorite of all the songs they’ve released.
This is another one of Tool’s most famous songs, and it’s a classic live staple. It’s been played less than 50 times, though, with the last time being in Dallas in 1998.
