: What is the significance of nine inch nails? Are these the size nails that Jesus was crucified with?

I researched this a few months back because I wondered if there was any significance - it turns out the group say that they just randomly made up the name. Personally, I think that is being disingenuous as '9-inch' would suggest an above-average penis length (so I understand) and 'to nail' is a crude expression for having sexual congress - the group claimed that there was no sexual reference in their title, but I find that unlikely.
