But it is impossible to record at -18DBFS RMS

they say you should record @ this level because old VU meters were RMS meters and 0VU (which is now -18DBFS)was the target. But every source I record at this level peaks into almost clipping territory and this is not even drums or transient type stuff so what is this RMS bollocks then? (FYI I am using the RMS meter in cubase)
