The Coasters adalah grup musik R&B/Rock and roll Amerika Serikat yang dibentuk di Los Angeles, California pada tahun 1955. Dimulai dengan "Searchin'" dan "Young Blood", lagu-lagu paling berkesan yang ditulis oleh tim produksi dan penulisan lagu Leiber and Stoller.[1] Meskipun Coasters berasal di luar doo wop arus utama, rekaman mereka begitu sering ditiru sehingga mereka menjadi bagian penting dari warisan doo wop melalui tahun 1960-an.
