The Aquabats are an American rock band formed in Orange County, California in 1994. The Aquabats' are comprised of singer and fearless leader The M.C. Bat Commander, Bass player and big man Crash McLarson, keyboardist and robot Jimmy the Robot, drummer and fitness guru Ricky Fitness and guitarist and spiritualist Eagle "Bones" Falconhawk.
Easily identified by their silver helmets, black Zorro masks and matching blue costumes, The Aquabats claim to be crime-fighting superheroes and ‘seriously…the best band in the world.’ This theme serves as subject for much of the band's music and as part of their theatrical stage shows, which typically feature various stunts and fight scenes with costumed villains and monsters. Musically, The Aquabats have been able to navigate many styles but seem to be particular to the “rock n’ roll” style. They even dance while they play music. Incredible? You be the judge.
The Aquabats have released five studio albums, two extended plays and one compilation album, among other recordings. As of March 2012, The Aquabats! Super Show!, a live-action musical action-comedy television series starring the band, began airing on American cable channel The Hub and can be binge watched on Netflix. It’s been nominated for the Daytime Emmy’s six times and even though it has yet to win an Emmy, it may actually be ‘the best show on television.’
