I've heard all sorts of things, such as it being a euphamism for masturbation somehow having to do with Peter Gabriel, or a picture of a tree with porcupines for branches in some computer programmers manual (Steven Wilson's job pre-rock star).

Here's one I'd like explained. The Number 12 Looks Like You. Everytime i hear of them i get frustrated trying to think of what the hell it'd mean.

Coheed & Cambria

as for RATM, they arent raging against any machine, merely feeding the corporate music industry, like everyone else

Opeth. Means City of The Moon, and I can see that being related to an at-the-time 40% Black Metal band.
