Band Name Origins:

  • I like to think that maybe it's a bit of a play on Led Zepplin. By definition, a zeppelin which is made of lead would be 'heavy, yet uplifting' (zeppelin=blimp, lead=heavy metal)... Perhaps STP is SO heavy that their zeppelin of lead is piloted by an ancient temple made of stone, while at the same time, their music is so powerful that their stone temple pilot could be floating along behind the clouds to this day... Oh, and by the way, a little research immediately points out Led Zepplin as being one of STP's biggest inspirations, with the band going so far as to say their ultimate touring experience would be the privilege of joining Led Zepplin up on stage as the opening act. Coincidence? apparently. Only the band members know for sure. Submitted by: Tom
  • Scott Weiland remembered a sticker on his bicycle as a child that had the letters "STP" on it. They were originally going to call the band "Shirley Temple's P****." Submitted by: Matt

Stupid Band Names:

  • A "pilot" can also refer to a first episode of a TV series. So assuming there WAS a show called "Stone Temple"...usually, (but not always) there is only one pilot episode of a TV series. Anyway, musicians, who are people, cannot be television episodes. Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Sex Type Thing"
The Lyrics:

Should be "I'm going to TEACH you about philosophy." "Learn" means "to gain knowledge" and teach means "to instruct". You can't gain knowledge somebody, you instruct them.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Fire Band's Co-Founder"
Singer Scott Weiland said he learned that he'd been fired by the Stone Temple Pilots when the band released a one-sentence statement to the media recently. "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from STP this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure I can be terminated from a band I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of the biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out." The statement by the band said: "Stone Temple Pilots have announced that they have officially terminated Scott Weiland." No other information was provided. Weiland, 45, has dealt with drug addiction, run-ins with the law, and two failed marriages. He released his memoire "Not Dead & Not for Sale" in 2011. Weiland said he was focusing on his solo tour, which kicks off in Flint, Michigan.
