- The name of the band came from a biblical passage about the 12 stones collected by the Israelites after crossing the Jordan river.
- Paul McCoy was featured in the successful Evanescence single "Bring Me to Life".
- 12 Stones has originality and offers a great quality of post-grunge rock music. They feature a heavier and more guitar driven songs. It gives amazing effect on their singles. The lyrics are awesome and full of energy. --Mimi 08:00, 28 October 2008 (PST)
