* ParentalAbandonment: Several of Tool's songs are about Keenan's mother, who suffered an aneurysm and was partially paralyzed when he was still a child, and about his parents' divorce and the stress he dealt with when his mother re-married. Just about all of his endeavors reference her at some point, "Jimmy" is essentially Maynard's angst about his parents' divorce, and the Music/APerfectCircle song "Judith" is a scathing indictment of his mother keeping her faith in spite of her predicament. She died in between ''Lateralus'' and ''10,000 Days'', and "Wings for Marie" and "10,000 Days (Wings pt. 2)" are essentially his eulogy to her, praising her for being essentially the bedrock of his life and saying that after all she endured while still keeping her faith, it would be an outrage for her to not enter heaven.

* ProtestSong: "Right in Two," which is essentially two angels looking at humanity and pondering how such a fundamentally nasty race gained such favor with God, and "Hush", which is broadly about censorship.

* YouWontFeelAThing: "Stinkfist," which uses fisting, as a metaphor for desensitization.

Founded in Los Angeles in 1990, Tool is a ProgressiveRock[=/=][[ProgressiveMetal Metal]] group mostly known for their use of unconventional time signatures and rhythms, [[EpicRocking long songs]], MindScrew-tastic imagery, and emphasis on personal interpretation of their music. Like many bands in the 90's music scene, Tool started out as an underground group, and was signed by a record company after only three months of playing together. On March 1992, their first EP ''Opiate'' was released. Since then, four studio albums have been released, all of which have gone platinum and have achieved widespread success worldwide.

* AwesomeButImpractical: [[http://i.imgur.com/rrvWBMB.jpg Danny Carey's all-bronze drumkit made completely out of recycled cymbals]]. They may look cool, but they can't be used for overseas travel due to the sheer weight of the shells. According to TheOtherWiki, the bass drums themselves weigh ''93 pounds''!

Added DiffLines:

* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: The final lines of "Vicarious" are a very on-the-nose example of this.
--> ''"Credulous at best your desire to believe in''\\
''Angels in the hearts of men''\\
''Pull your head on out your hippie haze, give a listen''\\
''Shouldn't have to say this all again''\\
''The universe is hostile, so impersonal''\\
''Devour to survive, so it is''\\
''So it's always been"''

* FreudWasRight: [[invoked]] "Tool" is slang for penis. WordOfGod is that this is only one interpretation, but some of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tool_(band)#/media/File:Tool-logo-early.jpg licensed artwork]] [[InvokedTrope definitely goes down that particular route]].
