IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION SOME OF MY NEWER FOLLOWERS DO NOT KNOW WHO THE AQUABATS ARE. Lemme tell you, I talk about them a lot. So let me inform you, and possibly other followers who they are. Right now!
Wow what is this, is this, The Aquabats? A rock’n’roll super hero band that saves the day. Why, yes! YES IT IS! The Aquabats have been around since 1994, worn many different outfits and currently are known for wearing cyan rashgaurds, sometimes purple ones!
They use to be a ska band, even then they were like a nerdyska band because they dressed up like super heroes. As displayed in this video for Super Rad here. Man the 90’s where a magical time. This is the part where someone mentioned Travis Barker was in the Aquabats, you know that guy from Blink 182? But I’ll be honest I’ve heard this so many times I wanna fucking barf.
Later on, The Aquabats lost the horns. Stop asking them about this, it’s easier for them to write songs and the guys who did the horns still work quite often with the bats. It’s great. So what are they now that they don’t have horns? Truly not a ska band, no they’re like a nerd-rock synth pop punk band now. That sounds like this, this is just one of my favourite songs from their latest album.
At shows they are known for fighting monsters, Kaiju style. They commonly let kids on stage during songs like Pool Party to dance around and throw them into the crowd so the kids can crowd surf. If there’s no kids? Beachballs and other floatation devices. I’m saying their live shows are a fucking experience.
Now they also have a TV SHOW! YAAAAAAY! WOW A TV SHOW CRAZY. It took them 10+ years to get this show, I waited, 10 years for that show to happen. Thanks to The Hub, many cadets are now able to see the Aquabats in their prime glory. If you have Netflix or just wanna watch it on Hulu go do that! Right now. Look at these rascals on their 0 budget tv show.
Burgers, so majestic (from s01e01).
Man wow, not sold yet? I don’t know what to tell you, other than look at this, they have cartoons in their TV show.
CARTOOONS! Some featuring Lil’ Bat. Some featuring them. Also there are dudes you know all over the show, featuring people from bands such as Man-or-Astroman?, The Vandals, MCR, Devo, or just plain cool people like Tony Hawk, Weird Al, and more. You’ll watch it and be like “Is that Plankton from Spongebob” YES IT IS. YES IT IS. THAT IS HIM DOING THE NARRATION.
But nah, The Aquabats are Seriously The Best Band In The World, and you should give them a list.
I leave you with this.
!!!! WHAT’S THAT? That’s not an aquabat in that rashgaurd. I TRICKED YOU. WE’RE NOT DONE YET. THAT’S ME WITH RICKY FITNESS AND HE’S IN NORMAL COTHES AND I’M DRESSED UP. WHAT IS THIS?
Fans of the Aquabats are often called Cadets. CADETS ARE RAD! They don’t hate on each other, or they shouldn’t if they do fuck them. Cadets follow the aquabats, they are all about being rad to one another and supporting the Bats. While Cadets actually gets really complicated, Official ones vs non official ones, they’re all the same. While there should be some respect held for those who have a hard, don’t hate on them. Respect that they got that, it’s important. Aquacadets are sometimes treated differently on Tumblr in which they become a persona, while saying “I have a cadet” is still really weird cause like, ahh that’s a person. The cadetsonas are basically what those people would pick as their Cadet Name So No Hate Here.
Cadets come in all shapes and sizes, genders and ages, from kids to old people and there’s only fun between them. They will help you out if you are in a jam, that is just how we roll.
And that’s basically it.
That’s it guys.
