Hey hey, we’re back in action with another totally killer Discovery of the Day! From Monday to Friday MSQ brings you all our top picks from from the vast realm of crypto—whether it’s NFTs, DeFi protocols or Blockchain-based games, we always do our best to bring you the best projects on offer. In today’s edition we’re dusting off our Lynyrd Skynyrd vinyls and turning up the volume for…Tools of Rock!
For Those About to Rock…
I was never really hugely into music as a kid. In fact, I only really started to discover my propensity for the sonic early on in High School. One of my friends actually suggested I get a guitar and start learning at the beginning of ninth Grade. I casually mentioned it to my dad in passing one day, and he practically leaped at the opportunity. A few months before my 15th birthday, I got an acoustic guitar, but it wasn’t until I got my first electric guitar on my 15th birthday that it really hit me—if there was ever a moment in my life where time stood still and Destiny called my name…it was right there and then.
For real, it was exactly like this
19 years later, and I’m still at it, having recorded numerous songs across a range of projects and released the debut album of my latest project, Imperious Vision , just over a year ago. I’m not sure what it is, but something about Rock and Metal has always stuck with me, and I’ve had a burning desire since that amazing moment on my 15th birthday to create and perform whenever I can.
That’s why today’s Discovery of the Day really strikes a chord with me (yup, I went there). Tools of Rock is an ultra sweet NFT collection consisting of 8,500 unique and generative NFTs rocking across the stages of the Ethereum Blockchain. Each Tool of Rock is entirely unique and programmatically generated from over 170 possible traits including Pick Design, Pick Shape, Album Artwork, Vinyl, Frame, Background, Date, Rock History, and Vinyl Label. Although every Tool of Rock NFT is unique and is in and of itself a work of art and piece of Rock history, some are rare than others!
A cool feature of Tools of Rock is the VIP Pass that grants holders several benefits including being able to mint their Vol.1 (as well as future Volumes) album covers as unique NFTs, discounts on future mints and DAO access. Check out all the benefits below:
Tools of Rock
So of course you love all the acts, but what about the headline act? Well say no more! Let’s take a look at a few sample of the Tools of Rock:
This one makes me feel like Runnin’ with the Devil
Purple Haze anyone?
Collector Series Vol. 1
As an added bonus for avid fans and collectors, those Tools of Rock holders who collect 10 unique Tools of Rock that match certain prescribed criteria will receive an exclusive Tool of Rock (TOR), the Stairway Collection Reward. You can see more details below, or you can view it directly on the Tools of Rock official website
OK, truth be told, Tools of Rock has a LOT going on. They’ve already hit a few milestones, so we’ve created an abridged version of their ‘Roadiemap’ for you to scope out:

Gods of Rock 🎸
Presented by Tools of Rock, Gods of Rock is a Generative NFT project consisting of 10,000 Rockstars assembled from over 180 male traits and more than 90 female traits. From what it seems, you can still mint your own Rockstar directly via the Tools of Rock website, or you can pick up an existing Rocker over on OpenSea
Here’s an example of what a Gods of Rock NFT looks like:
I think this guy may be a fan of The Misfits
Tools of Rock is completely sold out. However, you can still grab an NFT over on OpenSea if the itch is just something you have to itch! And now for some stats…
Please Note: Stats are accurate at the time of writing, but be sure to check the original source for the most current information.
- Total Items - 7.8K
- Owners - 2.4K
And that brings the show to an end my fellow Rockers! Tools of Rock is a super awesome NFT project with plenty going on and even more coming up. Follow them on Twitter and join their Discord so that you can keep up with all the latest tour dates and be the first in line to receive some totally awesome opportunities. Anyway, I think I need to plug in my six string and shred some sick solos. Until next time NFT fans, horns up, and rock on! 🤘
