Apparently 'tool' as a derogatory term is first recorded in the 17th century and refers to a gentleman's erm..most intimate 'tool'.

You use dang instead of the conventional damn so as not to cause offence?

Although "lachrymology" was also cited as an inspiration for the band's name, Keenan later explained their intentions differently: "Tool is exactly what it sounds like: It's a big dick. It's a wrench. ... we are ... your tool; use us as a catalyst in your process of finding out whatever it is you need to find out, or whatever it is you're trying to achieve."

A bit Cockney English. A polite version of God blind me, which was an oath not to be uttered in polite society in the early 20th century.

So its a bit of the older english, much like cheerio I guess.

Speaking of tools I've met quite a lot of people over the years that were " dumber than a sack full of hammers "  lol.
