Yes you may be thinking "wait Tool is a mainstream band they already have enough attention" well with people who were around to hear their music or still buy CDs or vinyl, but for people who are newer to this genre Tool is almost never listened to now, which is a shame, if their label would only let them release their albums the way they want them to be released - Quart
Honestly while they're famous they don't get enough attention because people today have forgotten about them because they're not on streaming sites, which is sad - Bobbobert
They are already very famous. - Ananya
2 The Verve

Bittersweet Symphony and Urban Hymns were great, but their early psychedelic stuff was great too. Gravity Grave is one of my favorites by them.
Bittersweet Symphony is a masterpiece - Bobbobert
Pulp were in the limelight for all of one album, which, although musically was pioneeringly unique and one of their best, yet before and after it had relatively no chart of media effect as such. They were around in various incarnations form 1978-2012, yet we're only darlings for 1995. Not fair. My favourite band ever and always will be. Love them!
