I just realized Tori Amos, especially on Boys for Pele, has a lot of the same aesthetic as Tool. She even did a duet with Maynard. Maybe she should be moved to proto-post-prog-metal?

She could have been a big name in neo-hair metal.

She could have been as big as RATT, probably bad advice from her record label.

I dunno, maybe the twelve (12) people who cast their vote? If you don't have an opinion, your protest is nothing but empty words. Disapprove

^ That may be the single most '80s video ever made.   RATT shares a fine tradition with Def Leppard, Tygers of Pan-Tang, and Led Zeppelin of hard rock bands intentionally misspelling their own names.

More like proto ambient twerk.
