All my friends know the lyrics to Tool songs and **** and say how deep it is. I couldn't tell you jack **** about the lyrics. I listen to it for the guitars and drums, singing is just a plus. And everyone can **** off with their opinions.
probably wouldn't make much sense without lots of drugs:
I'm not sure if i'd WANT to make sense of that if i'd done lots of drugs.
Pink Floyd is standard too, obviously.
edit: on the subject of tool. maynard has made pretty clear what a lot of their songs are about, and it makes pretty good sense, so there's not much deep about that. i think what makes people regard their music as 'deep' is just the odd time signatures, and weird music videos and art. and choice of words. but he isn't really singing about anything cryptic in any way. regardless, if you don't think tool is good "mind-opening" (as vague as that could be) music, watch one of their music videos while listening under the influence.

There's probably not much "science" on the issue because its hard to empirically research it in a controlled setting. There are a lot of variables that can contribute to psychedelics/drugs affecting ones life.
As to keep this thread on topic.
Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon (surprised noone has mentioned this yet)
and any of deadmau5 (its grade A techno )
(this next song doesn't really do much until just before the 2 minute mark)
