Other popular stans-fanbases[edit]

Leona Lewis fans are "buns" (full word "bunnies" used a bit less frequently). She refers to them as such herself on her social media accounts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Horseluvrelisha (talkcontribs) 23:42, 29 June 2014 (UTC)


The first fandom to be called "Soldier" were the Linkin Park stans. They got the name in 2000, two years before Cheryl Cole career started. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.64.190.188 (talk) 20:32, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Fans of the band DEVO often call themselves Devotees and have been since well before 2000 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.226.152.2 (talk) 17:15, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

I think people kinda forget about "Maggots" the fanbase of Metal band Slipknot, those are stans too, also I think we got "Lovatics" the ones of Demi Lovato, "Moon-children" the ones of Kerli. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.142.242.143 (talk) 21:17, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Given the scope of the article seems to center around stan culture in regards to pop music, the included fanbases seem appropriate. With a reliable source, the ones you mentioned could find a place if they're notable. --Thevampireashlee (talk) 00:24, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

instance with tvxq yunho[edit]

the instance with tvxq was done by an anti-fan of yunho's not a sasaeng fan. she ran the largest anti-fan cafe of tvxq's at the time. and she was not arrested or tried since yunho didn't want to press charges. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.229.231.65 (talk) 14:29, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Another Fanbases[edit]

"BVB Army" - Black Veil Brides (whole fanbase) "Club Rockers" - INNA — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.239.236.131 (talk) 20:28, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Those need to be supported with reliable sources in order to be included. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 20:31, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

List of fanbases[edit]

I removed the list of fanbases sections, as it would introduce a POV all fans are stans.

Create a separate List of fanbases could be interesting to host this list content. --Dereckson (talk) 22:26, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

History of term[edit]

Eminem's song is only mentioned briefly in the intro. Should this be expanded upon? -KaJunl (talk) 17:09, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
