Is it necessary to label the hamburger icon?

There has been some discussion as to the usability of the hamburger symbol. Jeremy Keith has a brief summary in his journal.

The question becomes, is it necessary to label the hamburger icon. I bought a new PVR recently, I think the remote control answers this question nicely.

PVR remote with all buttons labelled, including well known symbols.
