From the t.d.n FAQ (http://toolshed.down.net/faq/FAQ.html):

C10. There are a lot of army references on "Undertow" - how come?

Maynard was at West Point Prep School / United States Military Academy Prep School for a time, hence references to the Honor Code ("I will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do"), to the term for first-year cadets (4 degrees) and to the term for brownnoser (tool).

Did any of the members ever explain why the band is called Tool?

Don't think so.

Hmm... I've heard plenty of rumors about it but they all shound like bullshit.

Scratch what I said earlier.

Also from the FAQ:

C4. What's the name "Tool" supposed to represent, anyways?

In a 1994 interview, Danny says that the band's name stands for how they want their music to be a tool to aid in understanding lachrymology. But if you don't buy the whole lachrymology thing, there's always the obvious answer.

C5. I heard that they were called "Toolshed" before they were called Tool...

That was only one of the names they were considering; they were never really called Toolshed. (It was in the context of that discussion that Maynard suggested Toolshed as the address for the WWW page.)
