Tool's discography can be daunting for someone looking to get into the band, but fear not! Vocalist Maynard James Keenan has one specific song that he feels is a great introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the group. In an interview with BBC Radio 1 Rock Show With Daniel P Carter, Keenan reveals that he thinks the best starting place is "The Pot" from the 2006 album 10,000 Days.

"To me that's one of the examples of some of our earlier energy blending perfectly with our more mature energy and kind of nods to our influences over the year. I feel like we really kind of struggle to make sure that all four of us shine as best we can on everything we do, to exhaustion.

"But I feel like this one is one of the one's that felt, not effortless, but fresh and conscious consciously effortless, if that makes sense? It just captures that vibe that I think, if you're gonna play a song for people to kind of get them into our band, I don't think you should start with the 27-minute one. Calm down. Don't get all QAnon on us.

"Focus on 'The Pot,' that will be the introduction to all the other possibilities that happen in this project."
