If anyone was into industrial music back in the 90's and some of the 00's, curious which band you like better, and why.

I'm torn by the two, NIN has the larger discography, but Tool's music and lyrics are so intense, and Tool was available to a broader audience strictly comparing the two.

NIN, There's usually only a minute or two of Tools 10 minute songs that I enjoy.

I'm still the only one who voted for Tool...haha.

Is it because people prefer Trent over Maynard?

Although NIN have a larger discography each of Tool's releases have been nothing short of great. I'm a bigger Tool fan but I still love NIN. Also, Trent is more consistent with his music. Tool hasn't put an album out since '06.

I like NIN, but this really isn't even close, and I'm shocked at the results so far. Tool is almost perfect in every facet -- composition/writing, instrumental performance, lyrics, vocals. Every record besides 10kD is a masterpiece, and even that one falls just a peg or two short.

NIN had a couple great records -- TDS and Fragile -- but everything after that felt semi phoned in. Trent's vocals are mediocre to the point of detracting from the music at times, where MJK is probably the best vocalist in post-grunge rock. Trent's lyrics range from passable to cringe-worthy, where MJK's are consistently wonderful.

Trent has a much wider array of talents than any one member of Tool, and obviously a much better personality, but that shouldn't really sway anyone's vote. It's just become cool to hate on Tool unless you're a big fan... it's like no one can have a nuanced opinion on them.

I voted for Tool too.

I like NIN, but I just never got into them the same way I did Tool.

Haha, I'm guessing you misclicked, because you actually voted for NIN.
