Best Tool Songs

The Top Ten

1 Lateralus

Ptahly says it best:

I believe it to be a alchemetical explaination into the divinity of the whole human condition. Especially, when he uses the four basiic colours of humanity and how we think we're all so different, but in reality we are all the same being looking at life at different angles. "As below so above and beyond I imagine"? That my friends is basic alchemy. Simply the equation that makes One out of three(Mental Spiritual Physical = The Perfected One). The spiral being our very same gentic code (which are the same for gold and the rest of this universe we happen to live in at this present time). Gnostic, in its terminology about embracing the Random. Its the over thinking over analyzing that really separates the body(the base)from the mind(the collective Godhood) until we are nothing more that lead trying to be turned into the Golden Age of Human Perfection that would be ushered in, once we accept our collective Godship instead of our individual ...more - BlindFremen

This whole list has just been usurped by the new album

Honestly? This song is deeper and better in every way than Schism. Amazing musicianship. Amazing lyrics and meaning. One of the greatest song I've ever heard in my life.

It contains the Fibonacci sequence. It's a masterpiece.

2 Schism

I could listen to this song for days on end. It's heavy handed musical qualities mixed with the inspirational lyrics and deeper meaning allow me to listen to this song no matter what mood I am in. I find my self in awe how great this song actually is.

Lyrically one of my favorite songs of all time. Tempo is great, and one of the greatest baselines of all time. Definitely the easiest Tool song to get into making it the best song to introduce to new Tool listeners.

This song should be number 1. This song is so Mighty and powerful.

My favorite Tool song... I find myself humming to this.

3 Vicarious

Craziest mixture of vocal tones ever the harmonies are killer

I can listen to this song all day has been my number one song by any band since I heard it... It gives me chills and dannys drumming is godly... Vicarious is perfection

Tool could not use any words in that song, yet it would still express more than any other casual one. The music itself is like pure, sublimed emotions, not to mention profound lyrics that can definitely touch everyone. Listening to Vicarious gives you unusual opportunity to experience what Catharsis really is. Just close your eyes and let the sound fill your heart and mind. Personaly speaking, this song changed my way of understanding what music really is.

How is Vicarious not number 1?

4 Parabola

The best song ever, of all time, by any band in the history of the world, I don't know if everyone just says it, but this song truly changed my life, it lifted me out of a deep dark hole I had been in for about 4 years and changed me back to the old me, someone who lives everyday to be enlightened and expand on intelligence, living each day as it comes and never worrying about the illusion that is pain. You need this song in your life no matter who you are, but it needs to come after parabol, as this truly allows you to feel the message in parabola, if you start in a dark place as Parabol does, the song carries you to the climax of light at the end of Parabola, life changing visual music at it's best.

This, (alongside parabol) is amazing to listen to on psilocybin, trust me - danimey

Parabol/Parabola is nothing short of a masterpiece. In fact, calling it a masterpiece would be an understatement. This song not only talks about the philosophy of life and existence, but it also taught me how to live. After listening to this song and truly understanding the meaning, it gave me an inner sense of peace that is unparalleled to anything I have ever felt before. Thank you Tool, you saved my life.

It is one of those songs that change your perception. Every time I hear it, Parabola restates why it is so important to keep moving forward, to realize the illusions of life, to live life to its full potential and to feel the rhythm and beauty all around. Lateralus as a whole does this, but Parabola is at it's pinnacle, the echelon of the parabola. Most other songs that I like are just music, there are few pieces of music that really mean something important and this is one of them.

5 Forty Six & 2

I truly admire each of the songs but I do have to say 46 and 2 is beyond just great lyrics and musical talent. It speaks to me as if the song was made for me. It describes my emotions and thoughts that I have not been able to put words to. I get lost in awe the more I think about the concepts the lyrics are referring to. This is a very complex song. The main idea is a sort of change into a higher state of being. Right now, humans have 46 chromosomes. It is estimated and presumed that the next stage of evolution will add 2 chromosomes to our DNA, hence the title Forty Six & 2.

There are many references to a shadow in the song. This is a reference to Carl Jung's work and theory. The shadow is everything in us that is unconscious, repressed, undeveloped and denied. These are dark, rejected aspects of our being. There is supposedly good in our shadow, as well. However, since it is only our unconscious, we are unaware of what that good is.

The song talks about stepping ...more

Not just a song... not a song at all. It is all about tension, which never fades! I've been crawling on my belly, clearin out what could have been - these lyrics are stuck in my mind. Awesome.

This is the best one by far. I can't believe it's 7 in this list.

Greatest song by any band all time hands down. Brings tears to the eyes every time I listen.

6 Sober

When I was trying to get into tool, I found myself struggling. And then I heard sober. Listening to this song makes me feel like I just kicked an army of tanks in the face with my fist.

First song by them I ever heard. No idea how this is not rated #1 by a landslide. I love it so damn much I could play it all day on repeat.

Absolute Masterpiece

One of my favorites - DenyYourMaker

7 The Pot

Amazing

This is an amazing song. Can wake up the dead. What powerful riffs! I have discovered Tool a bit too late but better late than never!

This is by far Tool's best track they have written. A masterpiece is the only way to describe it. It show's the bands true musical talent and Maynard's lyrics have such a strong meaning. The prominent bass line defines Justin Chancellor's "simple yet elegant" style he has created over the years. The small intricacies in this song bring Tool to a new high in my opinion, like Schism or Vicarious, however in a more simple manner. To sum it up in one word: Brilliant.

This song just empowers us to stand up against those arrogant people we come across in life who sniper other's imperfections yet ignore their own.

8 Aenima

Aenima is the best. This song is how I used to think in early high school.. It has more meaning then any other song I have ever heard in my entire life

This song is a masterpiece. I love all these songs, but Aenema is flawless...ludicrous to not be in the Top 3 at the very least!

Just wanted to say that there arent many Tool songs I dislike they are probably my favorite band and that is sayin somethin because like my name states Iam a MusicManiac, but I think I have to go with Aenima its crazy good don't get me wrong The Pot, Stinkfist, Sober, Schism and many more are great but my decision goes to Aenima... and why isn't Swamp Song on this list it beats out some of these others... - MusicManiac69

I love every Tool song ever written to death, but this song... This song is so damn good, that it was one of my favorite songs when I was too young to even understand Tool, and it may not be fair because I still don't like Stinkfist, but all I know is, this song is amazing, even more than vicarious.

9 10,000 Days (Wings, Pt 2)

Wow, I can't believe how this voting is going. People, just because a song is popular doesn't make it the bands best song. Vicarious is a good song but it doesn't even belong in the top 5. Listen to 10000days, Rosetta Stoned, and Third Eye, look up the lyrics. And don't vote on this page if you've only heard a few songs, because I guarentee that if everyone on this board actually listened, understood, and looked up the lyrics to 10,000 days it would easily be top 5.

Best tool song ever. I don't know why they give 9th spot deserve top 3,

Amazing Track. Builds you up to a crescendo and plateaus off before absolutely you up around the 8 minute mark

All of tool's songs are amazing but this song stands out to me (both parts). The methodic yet confusing rhythms of the guitar the bass and the drums all separately alone are enough to blow me away, but in unison, they encircle me in a fantastic melancholy I can only describe as zen. In addition to the amazing instrumentation, the lyrics are similarly lovely. If I had to describe these lyrics in one word, it would be poetry. Maynard's canonizing of his mother reveals reveals the deep mourning he has experienced while questioning his worthiness to be the child of such a person. All around this is just a top-notch, 5 star song and I do not think anything I will ever hear will match the beauty and complexity of it.

10 Stinkfist

Best song Tool ever wrote!

Choosing my favorite Tool song is like choosing my favorite pile of money. They're all amazing. It was a tough choice between Sober, Vicarious, and this song. I ultimately chose this song because when I think of the unique sound and experience that is a Tool song, I think this song really exemplifies those qualities that make the band so great. Best band ever and one of the most important in the last 20 years of rock music certainly and possibly beyond.

Damn is there a better hook than Stinkfist as a first song? Starts out with a very basic beat and then sucks you in to this very unique, and unequaled, Tool album. I love Stinkfist, not for it's undertones of desensitization of music/society or the subtle introduction of voice mixing, I love the entire composition and the ride...damn it's the whole transition from angst-depression Tool to something more. I'll say it like this...I'll never skip this song.

Not enough I need more, nothing seems to satisfy. I said I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe to feel to know I'm alive.

Adam Jones' defining moment. It takes 25 years of Adams established sound and style then showcases all facets of it in a 15 minute masterpiece. A massive song.

Instant classic first time I heard it, will go down as one of tools best songs once the dust settles, all hail Adam Jones.

Hits like you like Mike Tyson in his prime

Best Tool song of all time!

The Contenders

11 Eulogy

Love how it gets evil as it goes.

This song, more than other Tool songs, will actually be a part of music history. I feel that it is best example of what Tool means to the music world. It is something that all music fans can listen to and be influenced by.

It may not be now, but it will be recognized as their best piece of work.

One of the first tool songs I heard and has always been a favourite

This song just switches me off and reminds me when I had no hope of living, it scream inside me reminding me that am not the only one with problems, lines like "we wish you well, you told us that you weren't afraid to die"i can remember still remember those days and this song just takes me to exact time of my hollow...

12 Right in Two

Underrated

Love the meaning of this song, the angels watching us evolve from monkeys into a voilent society is how I look at it, vicarious is a good song with a great message, but I think this song is the best! - dragon13304

Even though it takes a while to build up, the anticipation is worth it as the slow, cryptic melodies build up and then come screaming through the speakers with the music manifesting itself into completely different times due to the poly-rhythmic playing. Absolute musical masterpiece

Should be at least in the top 5

13 The Grudge

Dude! Come on, any drummer should pick this song! This song and Forty-Six & 2 have the greatest drum solos ever put on a song. Daney Carey does the best he can on these songs and he does it all with just TWO of his hands! And it's not just the drums, the guitars on this song show thick, riffing patterns that contrast and make a really cool beat with the drums. The build to the end is so intense! These guys no how to play! They are my all time favorite band and that makes choosing that much harder. However, I came to a conclusion over years of them being my favorite that this song tops it all. This is my absolute favorite song ever! The meaning to lyrics melded into this song make everything almost over the top by how good they are together. This song needs to be in the top ten. Yes, I realize some songs, Schism, Sober, and Forty-Six & 2 are classics to any Tool fan, but The Grudge has to be put in the top ten for the sheer instrumental powers these guys have. It is the heart and soul ...more

In my opinion, The Grudge has the greatest display of all of the band's individual talents.

The best Tool Song, can't believe this is as low as it is.

AT LEAST top 5 material

The top 10 has like 3 good songs. 10-20 is better

Best chorus best guitar riffs

This song shows both their artistic ability and the fact that they can rock pretty damn hard. One of my favorites as far as Maynard's voice goes, plus that riff is just amazing.

15 Jambi

Greatest song ever written

This should be in top 3

I love every Tool song. Jambi is just my personal favorite.

Seriously... Listen to this song at a high volume. Now do it twice more. Now tell me it isn't their best song... Oh wait, you can't.

16 Third Eye

This is easily the best song Tool has ever composed. It's not the easiest Tool song to get into, but once you get familiar with it you just can't stop listening to it. It's quite an unic song withing Tool's catalog, it sounds like nothing else they've made.

Great song people easily overlook it could have a variety of meanings doesn't matter because people can relate to this song however they want. For me it opened up the door for me to look into meditation as a way to calm my mind and try to experience something different and has worked real well for me so far. My grades used to be D's and F's and I was at a continuation school, now I'm in a regular high school graduating this year with A's and B's, I can't say for sure the meditation brought me here (after meditation sessions I have a hard time remembering what happened, but always feel enlightened like I learned something) but it has defiantly helped pave the path of small steps to help me deal with life thank you Tool for producing such a good song even if it had no deeper meaning when he wrote it. I don't care because it helped me with life

Third Eye isn't my favorite Tool song ever, (that would be Vicarious) but it is my favorite song from AEnima.

Definitely top 3

17 Rosetta Stoned

Come on, it's not a most popular song list, this is easily one of their best, why is it ranked 16.

I'm a new fan of Tool, and this is the song that got me hooked. Top comment of "10,000 Days (Wings, Part 2)", thank you for telling me to look up the lyrics. This song isn't too hard to play, but I think because of the delivery, it makes the simplicity (of the guitar) so much better. On the other hand, all the lyrics being thrown at you at once just sounds amazing.

song is long, but one of the best songs they have

This song is GREAT. it is an intense trip which tells the story of a guy who ends up in hospital after a surreal experience. he tries, during the song, describe the whole experience to the doctors while still startled by the importance of what he (thinks) he been through.

The song, in the end, is very ironic. reminds us we're humans.

18 Ticks & Leeches

This is what you wanted... this is what you had in mind.

One of the greatest drum parts of all time caps off this magnificent song by one of metal's most original, powerful, and technical groups. Really, everything about this song is perfect, but as a drummer I have to give extra props to Carrey on this track. And not Jim Carrey. Danny Carrey, the drummer. Not the comedian. And if you needed that reminder, please don't vote. You obviously don't know Tool well enough.

What the? I have no idea why this song is so low! It's one of the more aggressive ones on the Lateralus album and altogether a great piece of music

This song is absolutely nuts! Especially on the drums. Danny does a ridiculously good job on the drums. The main groove especially, it is so good! If I could learn to play that my life would be complete. This song deserves more credit as it should easily be top 5. Lateralus should be #1 no argument there, but Ticks and Leeches is just so agressive, there isn't a Tool song quite like it!

This really should be higher... It has one of the best drum beats ever! Come on people listen to this song, if you haven't already!

19 H

This song and 46&2 are interchangable to me as the 'best'. I give this song a slight edge. I am apparently in the minority that likes older Tool better than newer Tool.

This song should be #1 in all categories, have the people voting here ever even listen to all there songs. Seriously need to re-tally votes and quit talking to people that have no musical talent.

Awesome song and one of Tools best. This is easily in my top 5 for tool songs. I guess I am part of the crowd that prefers their older work. Also this song performed live is phenomenal.

This song is unexplainable...I'll be completely honest, everyone of their songs are absolutly "AWESOME" filled with energy and a lot of their songs describe the way people feel and what people may be encountering or going through...my honest opinion their is no number "1" song by tool...they are all to great.

20 Pushit

Let me just start off by saying I love what all you guys have said about this wonderful epic, I completely agree on all points. For me, Tool is the one band that's basically impossible to make a top list about, generally speaking. Cause I literally love ALL their stuff. But having been this severely obsessed with 'em now for a few years (and even though I've almost had every single one of their songs as a favorite at one point or another) I am finally pretty confident that Pushit and Third Eye are at the very top of the list. And so, I can't urge new fans enough to be patient with these songs, it took me a long time before I started to truly appreciate these complicated themes, but once you do, it'll be some of the most beautiful experiences you'll ever have.

This is my favorite song by tool, it is one of those songs that you start listening to once you start getting sick of the album and start experimenting with the longer songs that take a little discipline to sit threw, but once you do you realize how amazing this song is and how epic the climax is. Maynard does some of his best vocals at the end of this song. Because this song is a little less popular then most of their songs I think it is missed a lot, but you just have to give it a try. One of tools great compasitions.

It's insane this isn't number one. Fantastic song here, the whole build up and then the very end when Maynard hits that last note, "I must persuade you another way, " is beautiful. It gives me chills every time. This is a truly touching song. Yes, it's long, but that is what gives it the emotional buildup. Absolutely beautiful work, no other band could come up with something this stellar.

Sad to see this at only 17 but I understand why. This song took me a while to appreciate but when I heard it the third or fourth time it emediately clicked to me. This song probably has the best opening guitar riff ever recorded, amazing vocals (Maynard's best for sure), flawless drumming, and great bass work. Prior to this song I was true believer that Lateralus was clearly the best tool song, but once Maynard sings the line "I'm pushing back into the gap again" the song starts to turn into a beautiful but hard rock anthem that has stuck with me ever since. Please listen to the song, and give it time. Then come back and get this song in the top 5!

21 Opiate

26? Really?! This is like one of the very best Tool songs EVER MADE! Takes me back to '92 when I was first introduced to Tool. I heard the Opiate album and could not stop listening to it. This is the last song on the album; not counting the "secret" song :) But you listen to the whole awe-inspiring album, and then end it with Opiate... It's just a song you can "feel" and always play on full blast and not get sick of it... Completely amazing.

So many awesome tool songs to choose from. At the moment this is my favorite. Awesome lyrics, I love the meaning of this song. Surprised this isn't higher on the list.

Should be in top 5, if not 1! My dad learned that he could sing from this song! He has a very successful band now. True story. :P

Should be higher. Probably one of the most sustaining tool songs ever.

It's like concentrated bomb, trying to explode and set it free you know. Is it really so hard to get rid of all the stupid habbits, fears and make radical changes in our lives? -Should try harder perhaps...

Recently heard this for the first time, it needs to be higher than this. The main guitar riff has a kind of sweeping, epic sound. Though I did just read the meaning.

One of their best

This song should be higher up in the list! It's a really great song to just get pumped up to for either gym or any other sport.

24 The Patient

It deserves to be at least in the top 10

SO ATMOSPHERIC

This is probably one of the most epic tool songs ever if you listen to it enough to understand its meaning. The opening is intense and the interludes kick your ass. The song evolves into an epic climax near the end and it easily makes my top 5 tool songs of all time. It is a crime that this song is number 34 on this list.

Waiting can be agonizing and sometimes it will even wither you. But this strange force called satisfaction does surface through from time to time and we just have to give the time and effort. Just being able to say the words "I'm still right here" at all is a testament to how patient you are.

Probably my favorite song from AEnima - Ljubo1950

Amazing song- such strong lyrical content and powerful rhythms are no new bout for Maynard and the boys. I would say it should be higher but only real tool fans know this.

After listening to all of Tool's discography this has got to be the single greatest tool song. Lyrical value is amazing. You Lied doesn't qualify since it's a Peach song

I don't think that I have ever listened to this song and intermission separately. intermission is the intro to this song.

26 Disgustipated

Truly one of the most hypnotizing songs of all time! And without a doubt, one of, if not THE GREATEST ALBUM ENDING IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC EVER!

I'd like to think of this song as a message to all the vegans out there that think it's wrong to eat animals. Disgustipated puts the purpose of human life into a different perspective that we are accustomed to. The sermom about the carrots is a huge testament to that, we are all alive, everything on this planet has a capacity to "feel" and "know". We all live, we all die and life feeds on life.

Even though its not a SONG song, like one that has a tune that you sing to, it is a great and meaning ful song. sure the seven minutes of cricket sounds in the end can get on your nerves a little by the end, but believe me it is worth listening to.

Two words: Truly creative.

Ok there are obviously way too many good Tool songs to decide that one is the absolute best. We all have our personal opinions, but my opinion of the best song has changed countless times over the years. But this song is in top 5. Incredible.

Clearly at least top 5. I understand a cover shouldn't be one of the top songs of a band but I consider it more like a remake. It creates a completely different atmosphere if you compare it to the original version. Everything is just so good about this song...

Listen to this song and tell me it doesn't belong in the top 5. It's not a very well-known song, but it's really good.

in order to survive you
i must first survive myself

Henry Rollins' spoken part on this track is amazing... Why isn't this song in the top 10?!

Wish there was a studio version of them doing this song, isn't very well known but its one of my favorites. "YOU LIED! "

How isn't this higher

48 Lost Keys

That single, bending, grating guitar note that pervades the album just makes me grit my teeth every time I have heard it.

I don't know what that person over there is saying in Spanish, but it is a really good song!

I don't know if anyone has heard this dong but you raelly need to and I am sure you will vote

How are you today... HOW ARE YOU TODAY

49 Wings for Marie, Pt. 1

I love that part near the end of this one with that amazing guitar and drums. After listening to both songs I realized that both songs end the exact same way, but on wings for marie it is more out of place if ya know what I'm saying

Are you kidding me?! Number 46 under Mantra, this song is fantastic and it's crazy how this is only at 46 - Quart

This is a good song. but why so low?

I didn't think people saw this one as mediocre. - AdamDestructorJr.
