Summer 2019 has seen some great new music released, including Taylor Swift's latest album, Lover, which comes after a 2-year gap from her last release.
More importantly, TOOL finally released their latest album, Fear Inoculum, after almost 13 years since their last release! They've also finally embraced the world of streaming, which has helped propel them onto charts like Billboard in a way they'd never previously experienced. In fact, they're well on their way to becoming the #1 album on Billboard's top 200, meaning they'll dethrone TaySwift for the coveted top spot.
While that's pretty awesome in its own right, what really makes it hilarious is that a LOT of Swift's fanbase has no idea who "this band TOOL" is, and they are PISSED about the fact that this "new" band might unseat their chosen queen.
Keep streaming guys! This band Tool is dropping a new album after 13 years (lmao 13) is okey but.. We still have a chance! STREAM #Lover by Taylor Swift HARDER! Also YNTCD and Lover seems to doing well so.. We have work pic.twitter.com/tplJMRG4AO— AILIN BESHARA (@Dureza10Mohs) September 4, 2019
Naturally, TOOL's fan base (which is, on average, definitely older than the Swifties) took great delight in their favorite band's success, and also got a good laugh out of all the Swifties freaking out about it.
