someone who tries too hard. a poser. one of those chic's who holds the sign saying "Carson Daly is Hot." the asstard who goes to a rock show because they heard one of the songs on the radio or mtv. or someone who insists on wearing velour sweat suits. Avril Lavigne.
Jane is a tool because she dresses like Avril Lavigne while listening to New Found Glory and Dashboard Confessional just becuase Carson Daly told her to.

An individual who behaves in their own self interest rather than adhering to a set of beliefs or morals. Someone who will act as though to seek approval on the outside, but is actually quite vain and selfish. Men of this variety tend to cheat on their girlfriends. Women tend to use men to obtain free drinks.
God, Brett is such a tool.

a word used by idiotic scenesters to describe anyone who doesn't fit... unfortunately, they don't realize that by conforming to the indie scene, they are still conforming, and whether they realize it or not, their lives are just as meaningless and externally controlled as the man in the cubicle... and that the people who they are calling tools KNOW that they are being used... they just have half a heart to spend their time helping out the aforementioned fools in hopes that they will see the truth and turn their life around.
fool 1: that kid is a tool
fool 2: I totally know, right? did you know that I asked for a ride to the store and he gave it to me for free?
fool 1: wow... what a tool. he actually HELPED another living being?
fool 2: yeah man, lame... hey, who's frederick kneetshaw?

A band formed in the early 90s with Maynard James Keenan on vocals/synth., Adam Jones on guitar, Danny Carrey on drums and Justin Chancellor on bass. A true band that doesnt rely on the studio to make their music sound awesome and actually sound better live than on album. They not only have the most talented instrumentals today but also have deep, thought provoking, meaningfull lyrics.They arent in it for the money and have yet to sell out to the mainstream, unlike countless other bands today. If you want to listen to music on the calibre of Led Zeppelin, Alice in Chains, Mettalica, and Pink Floyd, than Tool is right up your alley. If youre a brainless sheep that thinks everything MTV says is the wisdom of the gods and think fall out boy and the jonas brothers is real music, than I'm afraid Tool is not for your ears.
Hormonol preteen girl: OMG!! The Jonas brothers are so h0tt they r000ck!!!! If you dont like them you must be like gay or somethin

Me: To bad looks have nothing to do with making good music, and at the end of the day bands like Tool actually write their own songs unlike the jonASS brothers.

someone who is both pathetic in their attempts to be socially accepted and a jerk to those who may not accept them because of the typical way they present themselves
Man that guy just tries too hard and he's an asshole about it, what a tool.

a guy who works out instantly gets a sweet tan, frosted tips in his hair, does anything mtv says is cool rooms with you after high school because you got into the same school and have been best friends for 10 years and completely changes himself into a mindless asshole who says brah after every sentence and ditches you every night for his new sweet friends and then one night you confront him about how hes turned into a complete piece of shit copy of every moron at a free rockstar energy drink giveaway and storms out and dissapears for three days only to come back looking suspiciously guilty and smelling of your girlfriend of 3 years perfume and completely ruins your life

Someone you gives up on their own personality and sells their soul to the " cool kids" to be accepted,usually pretending to look like college kids, until high school is over then they usually become a epic fail.
Tool 1: " Whats up bro?"

Tool 2: "Nothin bra, i just got back from buying my polo hat that I will wear backwards, my bermuda shorts, a lanyard for my car keys, a polo shirt, my north face jacket, boating shoes, and my black Z-71 Tahoe."

Tool 1:"Hell yeah bro!"

Parents of Tool 1 and 2: " Why,God, did you curse me with these tools!?"

Someone who is easily swayed or derailed from ones own opinion or true feelings by perceived outside influences.
Jessamyn is such a tool. She totally wants Skip, but keeps playing stupid games because she thinks other people think it's cool.
