* BlackSheepHit: "The Pot." Maynard's vocals, especially in the beginning, are much higher than normal and barely sound like him, and it's one of Tool's "poppier", more radio-friendly songs.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: "Hooker With a Penis" was obviously written before the age of online file sharing. There's no guarantee that any fan of a musical artist has ever paid a dime to listen to their music.

** On April 1, 2005, Maynard announced via the band's website that he was disbanding Tool after "finding God," outraging many fans. A couple days later, he proclaimed "April Fools!!!" and stated that the band was hard at work on their next album (which would be 2006's ''10,000 Days''). While he never outright confirmed this, it's pretty obvious he was spoofing Brian "Head" Welch's departure from Music/{{Korn}} a couple months earlier.

* DevelopmentHell: The new album has been in the works, but the band has stated that there has been problems involving some legal trouble, with ''also'' stems from another lawsuit they're dealing with.

** Adam issued a false statement that the band's album was complete. Fans were ''outraged'' when he said he was joking, although work on the album actually ''is'' finally going on.

** Another example applies to ''Lateralus'', albeit for different reasons. The name of the album was "[[TheUnreveal revealed]]" in January 2001 as ''Systema Encéphale'', complete with a full setlist[[hottip:*: [[CaptainObvious By the way, this is the lie]]]]. [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil Cue dozens of bogus song files being uploaded on file-sharing networks]]. A month later, in what was more or less a TakeThat aimed at the pranksters, the album was revealed to be titled "''Lateralus''" instead, and that the name ''Systema Encéphale'', along with ''the entire "revealed" setlist'', was all a ruse.

* LyingCreator: Tool is known to spread misinformation about themselves as a way of preserving their mystique. One of their most famous fibs was claiming to subscribe to a philosophy called "Lacrymology," the study of crying, from a book called ''The Joyful Guide to Lacrymology'' published in the 1940s. Lacrymology doesn't actually exist.
