"The Pot" is a song by American rock band Tool and was released as the second single from their fourth studio album 10,000 Days (2006). According to Adam Jones, it is confirmed to be about hypocrisy and is a double entendre that refers to both drug intoxication and believing oneself to be above others, deriving from the phrase "pot calling the kettle black".
It became Tool's first number-one song, topping the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart in 2007. It also received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2008. According to The Rock Radio, a music video was filmed during the holiday season in 2006; however, it has not surfaced.
