Band Fic (or bandfic) is fanfiction written about bands and rock musicians. It is a subset of RPF. The term "bandfic" apparently it was less commonly used by fans in 6-degrees-of-Pete-Wentz Bandom. (See the related talk page for more informations)

In the 2000s, when RPF was better known as RPS, "bandslash" was often used interchangeably with "band fic," although the "-slash" in the term may distinguish it from the wider field of band fic, which can include het and gen fiction.
