One day after Justin Bieber revealed to his 115 million Instagram followers that he's a Tool fan, the band's frontman had a crystal clear response as to how he felt about it.

Maynard James Keenan responded to Consequence of Sound’s tweet about Bieber’s fandom, simply writing, “#bummer.”

While driving around LA on Thursday morning (July 11), Biebs shared some lyrics from 2006's "The Pot" on his Instagram story. "Who are you to wave your finger?/You must have been outta your head/Eye hold deep in muddy waters/You practically raised the dead," he wrote. He followed up with a story that read, "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."
