Tool fans vs Taylor Swift fans

Tool fans and Taylor Swift fans have been involved in a feud for years. Back in 2019, Swifties ignited an online feud with the fans of the rock band Tool. That year, Swift released her acclaimed seventh album ‘Lover’, which made its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Then Tool went on to drop ‘Fear Inoculum’, their first album in 13 years. Music industry experts projected that the ’90s rock act would unseat the pop star to claim the No. 1 slot and that didn’t sit well with the Swifties.

Lover was expected to drop to No. 2 on the chart but Taylor Swift fans took to social media to encourage their fellow fans to support the album.

“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 [“You Need to Calm Down”] and Lover seems to [be] doing well so.. We have work.”

Swift’s younger fans were also not familiar with Tool’s musical legacy.

“There is a chance of debuting at No2 due to a new band called Tool,” another Swiftie tweeted on Sunday. ‘If this ends up being the case then that would be an embarrassment beyond belief. This is Taylor Swift. She did not work her socks for the album and promo for this mess to happen.”

In response to the Swifties’ tweets, Tool fans also fired back:

“16 year old Taylor Swift fans who have no clue who Tool is freaking out that they’re gonna surpass her in sales (they will) is hilarious,” wrote one.

Another added: “I’m no Taylor Swift hater, but… This is nice to see every now and then Isn’t it…?.! Tool is a force!!! The album is pure power and creativity at its best.”

As per Billboard, the Grammy winner tied Elvis Presley for the 10th-most Top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after her song “Lover” rose to No. 10 during its second week of release. Swift’s touching ballad is her 25th song to hit the Top 10, and her latest single, “You Need to Calm Down,” is still ranking at No. 4. In addition, all 18 songs from Lover also charted on the Hot 100, breaking Billie Eilish’s previous record of 14 total entries.
