Tool's long-awaited and worshipfully received new album Fear Inoculum is currently on track to unseat pop superstar Taylor Swift's latest collection of sugary bops, Lover, from its spot at the top of the Billboard chart. While metal fans and Gen-X dads everywhere are surely stoked at the prospect, Swifties of a certain youthful age seem perplexed as to just who the fuck is taking down their beloved blonde princess, and they're encouraging fellow Lover lovers to keep up the streaming to fend off the mysterious potential unseating. Scroll below for some of the finest internet moments from the Swift fan freakout so far, as noted by The Daily Dot.
Should you feel the need to see more, simply search the keywords "Tool" and "Taylor Swift" on Twitter and help yourself to a field day of absurdity. If you'd rather spend your time on more worthwhile pursuits, listen to Tool's new album Fear Inoculum (for the 200th time) anywhere you can stream or buy music and help the band take the top spot.
