Die-hard fans of the elusive band Tool have been waiting for over a decade for the release of a new album. While promises of new music have been rumoured over the years, with the band supposedly in the process if recording right now, nothing solid has stemmed from it all, with countless internal band issues that always seem to hold them back.
So you can only imagine the uproar when, yesterday morning this google alert went out to thousands of Tool fans:
Unfortunately excited fans would soon learn they had pissed their pants for no good reason at all as turns out it was actually an alert for the new album for a rapper named TOOL$. Fans of the real Tool band have been left less than impressed.

Nothing quite like getting a Google notification that says "New album from Tool" only for it to be a hip-hop album by a band called Tool$. Screw you Google. Don't play with my heart like this.
