Sad reax only.
I see that this is confirmed in the very first paragragh of the wikipedia article for the album, but I think rock stars tend to just pick titles that sound cool, and justify them after the fact. Their stories about where a name came from will often change between interviews. They play it off like they're 'trolling the press', but in truth they're just full of shit.
