Stan as many people know is a character in Eminem's popular song Stan. Because the character was so obsessive the name can be used as an adjective. You could call somebody a "stan" if you think they are obsessive of someone or something. One good exampe would be in the song Ether by Nas.

Meaning a fan who is over obsessed with a celebrity. ST(alker f)AN.

Usually the word is used in a way that is not offensive to explain that someone is a dedicated fan or that you are telling someone to be a fan.

Typically stans can be found on any social media site, but especially on twitter. Stans on Twitter are collectively known as, you may have guessed it, stan Twitter.

Can be used as a noun or a verb.
“Do you stan Stray Kids?”
“Yes, I am a Stray Kids stan.”
Stan loona!”

Stan is a mix of stalker and fan. Its a crazy fan who basically worships a celebrity. The word was popularized by Eminem and now it is generally used as a verb.

If you stan a musician or celebrity you're a big fan. A person like that is also called Stan. "To stan" is the verb for being a Stan. You're obsessed witha certain celebrity and like them very much. You know almost everything about them and give other fans (who are not stans) information or help them because you know more than the maority of the fandom.

It is also used to simply say that you really like an artist.

There are two different kinds of stans, soft stans and hard stans
- "Do you know EXO?"
- "Yes, I stan them."

- "I stan 24K."

-"Do you stan them?"

-"You have to stan VIXX! They're the most talented group ever!"

- "Their new song is so dope, I think I gotta stan them."

A character from SouthPark. He is usually the rational one. Whenever Kenny dies (which is every episode), he says:

Stan: Oh my god, they killed Kenny!

Let's watch South Park, it's the one where Stan, Kyle, and Cartman try to build a ladder to heaven.
