Taylor Swift fans furious after 'random' band Tool took the number one spot

And of course, this has not gone down too well with social media warriors

September 09, 2019

Tool's new album Fear Inoculum is currently running no.1 on Billboard's top chart, and Taylor Swift fans are not happy.

Initially, the album's title track became the longest track ever to enter Billboard's top 10. Then Tool released their entire album after 13 years which is also the first Tool album to be released on music-streaming-services such as iTunes, Spotify, and Deezer. After which it also became the first to occupy all ten spots on Billboard's Rock Sales chart.

However, the fact that the album recently dislodged pop sensation, Taylor Swift's Lover, becoming no.1 on Billboards top 200, became unsettling for her fans.

Swift fans have since then started tweeting against the band suggesting that it has taken over a spot that belongs to her, further becoming perplexed over who Tool even is.


They went as far as urging people to constantly stream her album to knock over Fear Inoculum.


The tweets have now turned into a war between Rock and Pop fans, making things even more hilarious.


Never the less, Swift fans are not the first ones to be shaken by the Tool overload.

Justin Bieber also recently tweeted an old Tool song, Pot, claiming to be a fan, to which Maynard J Keenan responded with hashtag #bummer. To which Bieber fans also took charge of defending their idol. They claimed Maynard to be heartless and undeserving of the singer's affection.
