* AstroTurf: After "Fall Out" was released, letters began appearing in some local London music magazines praising the band's drummer, Stewart Copeland. Later (much later), it was revealed that those letters were written by one Stewart Copeland.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign:
AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: It was an recurring trend when Nigel Gray worked on their albums to name their albums after something foreign-sounding. They stopped doing this when Hugh Padgham took over as their producer.
** ''Outlandos d'Amour'' (the name of their debut album) loosely translates from French into "Outlaws of Love". The scat singing in "Masoko Tanga".title isn't even completely French. "Outlandos" is actually a portmanteau of "outlaws" and "commandos".

The Police were an English rock/new wave/[[PostSomethingIsm post punk]]/white reggae trio formed in 1977 by bassist and lead vocalist Sting, drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist [[ThePeteBest Henry Padovani]]. Padovani was soon replaced by former [[Music/TheAnimals Eric Burdon and the Animals]] guitarist Andy Summers. Reportedly, the band was named after something they knew would appear every single day in all newspapers. And what better than "police" to fit this?
