JESS: You know, I think I hung my Tool tee-shirt next to my Metallica tee-shirt and they don’t really get along.
Tool is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1990 by Maynard James Keenan and Adam Jones. They had a heavy metal sound on their first album, Undertow (1993), and became a dominant force in the alternative metal movement with their second album, AEnima (1996). Their musical experiments combining the visual arts and a message of personal evolution continued with Lateralus (May 2001).
Tool has won four Grammy Awards, performed worldwide tours, and produced internationally chart-topping albums. Defying easy categorisation, their music spans progressive rock, psychedelic rock, and art rock.
Metallica, previously discussed as one of Lorelai’s favourite bands. It seems as if she and Jess have more in common than she currently realises. Jess’ sarcastic remark about certain clothes not getting along sounds suspiciously like something Lorelai would say as well.
Presumably, Jess says Tool and Metallica wouldn’t get along because they have completely different styles of metal.
