Scouting for Girls are a London-based UK indie pop band formed in 2005 by Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Peter Ellard. The debut album from Scouting for Girls is self-titled, and has sold over 700,000 copies. It reached number 1 in the UK on 20 January 2008, where it remained for two weeks. The name Scouting for Girls is a play on the words of the Scouting for Boys handbook first published in 1908 for the Scouts, which provides boys instructions on good citizenship. Similarly, the Scouting for Girls fan club is known as the "Wolfcubs" and is based on the Dennis the Menace fan club.
