On Thursday (July 11), Justin Bieber revealed himself to be a Tool fan. Unfortunately for him, the feeling isn't mutual. When the rock band's frontman Maynard James Keenan caught wind of the pop star's fandom he only needed one word to respond: "#bummer"

Biebs showed his love for the band by sharing lyrics from the 10,000 Days track "The Pot" on his Instagram story. “Who are you to wave your finger?/ You must have been outta your head/ Eye hole deep in muddy waters/ You practically raised the dead” he wrote in a post before acknowledging the assumed disconnect between his fanbase and Tool's.

"If you know what the song is to the lyrics I posted write them down on my last post don’t look it up please I’m curious if any of you know it,” he wrote.

This isn't the first time Bieber has proven to be a rocker at heart. A few years ago, footage surfaced of him singing the lead guitar riff of Metallica's "Fade to Black" in a dressing room, and who could forget him dressing up like Ozzy Osbourne to cover "Crazy Train" for Lip Sync Battle back in 2015.

Tool is gearing up to release its long awaited fifth album — first in 13 years — on August 30 and has previewed a couple songs during recent concerts.
