Like all the other UNDER CODE bands, 12012 had a band concept. It was called "Ningen no Naimen ni Okeru Kyouki" (人間の内面における狂気; The Inside of Human Madness).

The name 12012 comes from the California, U.S.A penal code for the possession of a dangerous weapon. Japanese fans has nicknamed them Kyouki Shoji which is the japanese word for that legal term.
