LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 16: Canadian singer and songwriter Justin Bieber plays during the 2018 NBA All-Star Game Celebrity Game at Los Angeles Convention Center on February 16, 2018 in Los Angeles, California; NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 04: Maynard Keenan of Tool performs onstage during the 2017 Governors Ball Music Festival - Day 3 at Randall's Island on June 4, 2017 in New York City.

Justin Bieber might be thought of by many to be simply a tool, but apparently, the pop star is also a fan of the band Tool.

The Biebs shared lyrics to Tool’s “The Pot” on his Instagram stories from the band’s last album, 2006’s 10,000 Days, and asked followers if they knew which song he was quoting without having to look it up.

Obviously, this activity started to make the rounds and caught the eye of Maynard James Keenan, who responded via Twitter of the news of Bieber being a Tool fan with a simple “#bummer.”

Honestly, this might be the most poetic hashtag today.
