Good grief this song is painful down to the last scream. But I’m thinking maybe it is aimed to appeal to older generations since they have more money to donate. In general most young people don’t have as much in the bank. None of these guys are dummies.
Tool’s Undertow came out in 1993.
Yea the “turns 20″ theme is beginning to jump the shark a little. Save it for the truly significant.
Even at the age of 12 in ’92 I knew this album was a guilty pleasure.
