Why no TOOL (The band)

Casual Listener

Hello everyone!!

 

Well I just recently discovered Spotify and would like to know if any of you can point me in the right direction here.  I need to know who do I bug to get them to add Tool to the artist list.  No songs of Tool nor any of their albums are available!!!  Probably one of the best HM bands out there and nothing on them.

Not going to happen. Tool are anti music streaming services so you won't find them on Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal and probably never will. The best you can do is add any albums you own as local files into Spotify and sync them offline to your mobile devices.

you do realise it's the stubbornness of Tool entirely, right?
Spotify - for sure - would pay them well to add their catalogue.

Well, it's stupidity what it is because any Tool song is available for ANYONE anyway on youtube etc.

I would understand the whole band's policy to make ppl buy the CD, preferably Vinyl, if it was the only access to their music.
Hardcore fans buy the vinyl anyway and adding it to strraming services additionally would only get more people to enjoy real music. They would do the world a favor and themselves as well.

As Rolling Stone point out, yes, Tool is among the "10 Biggest Artists That Refuse to Stream their Music".

They hate music streaming services. Buy their CD's or vinyl.

Exactly my thoughts... why are they on Pandora? I don't see why ALL artists don't just give in, it's the way of the future after all.

Pandora is radio and is governed by different laws than on demand streaming services like Spotify. It's those laws that let Pandora play pretty much whatever it wants just like traditional radio stations can.

That's what makes me angry, they have Puscifer and A Perfect Circle? Why not Tool? What is the difference. Most people nowadays listen to music through Spotify, Pandora, and other streaming services. Not many are out there buying CD's still. I don't see why they don't just give in. Ya know?
