  • maintain FA quality

Matters to be discussed/clarified/reviewed

  • what to do about the band logo? ideas: band logo timeline? (what about fair use in that case? sources?) although a lot of forums talk about it, there's still no reliable source about the 10kD logo reading like "fool"

Source that was once in the article that may be reincorporated elsewhere

Live shows and visual effects[edit]

The article states

The big screens are used to play back "looped clips that aren't tracked to a song like a music video.

This is inaccurate. In their 2019 live show in Altice Arena, Lisbon, many songs had clips directly from their respective music videos. All the lgiht effects were well coordinated with the songs (to amzing effect btw). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:29, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Is this something that can be fixed through extra context? Like perhaps it was accurate during a particular tour or timeframe? Sergecross73 msg me 13:34, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Last sentence in lede[edit]

The last sentence in the lede needs a citation otherwise it will be removed. XenoRasta (talk) 19:19, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Well, the entire article is well sourced, and that sentence is just kinda summarizing a number of various things the band has done over the years. What exactly do you doubt conceptually here? Sergecross73 msg me 23:56, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Already done by the time I got here. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 04:37, 27 January 2020 (UTC)



Hello, fellow Wikipedians,

Could I add the entirety of the lyrics onto tool songs? I am planning on doing this for every song that has a Wikipedia page for it, and its a long project that needs to be approved --246700Sarhan (talk) 19:48, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

No, please don’t do that. That’s not what an encyclopedia does. You’ll notice that no musicians have that going on here. It’s not necessary anyways. All one has to do is Google “(band name) lyrics” and there’s multiple websites out there for even the most obscure bands/albums/songs. Sergecross73 msg me 20:47, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Yeah re-reading this makes me realize that is a really bad idea. --246700Sarhan (talk) 20:50, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
It’s no big deal - it happens all the time. It’s not so much “bad” as it is “just not the place for that.” Sergecross73 msg me 21:55, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
