No. 5: Tool, ‘Schism’ – Top 21st Century Hard Rock Songs

Tool, 'Schism'

Tool may be the most eclectic band to have ever been embraced by the empire of mainstream music. With Tool having already developed one of the world’s most rabid fan bases, the band released a work of brilliance in 2001 with ‘Lateralus.’

The first single from the album, ‘Schism’ is nearly seven minutes of sudden time signature changes and brilliant lyrics reaching for introspective depth. Tool found true beauty in the dissonance of ‘Schism,’ receiving a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2002.

Next Song: No. 4
