Aquabats live in Pittsburgh, 2005

The Aquabats performing in Pittsburgh in 2005.

The Aquabats (often written as The Aquabats!) are an American rock band formed in 1994 in Orange County, California. They have released six full-length studio albums and have toured internationally. They are best known for their mythology, in which they claim to be superheroes on a quest to save the world from evil through music. As a part of this mythology the band members have adopted superhero pseudonyms and dress in matching costumes. Their eclectic live show often includes onstage "battles" with costumed foes, and the band has built up an elaborate and ever-changing backstory of their origins and adventures, along with a roster of allies and enemies. Over the years their music shifted towards more synthesizer-based rock with a new wave influence. Their current style blends elements of rock and roll, pop-punk, ska, and synthpop.

With Mega64 Edit

The original, instrumental version of "Sequence Erase!" is used as the theme song and several other songs are used in the credits for Mega64, in which Christian Jacobs and Ricky Falomir have made cameo appearances, and in which several characters are sometimes portrayed wearing Aquabats T-shirts. In addition to the show, the Mega64 Podcast uses The Aquabats' "Lonely Horseman!" as its main theme song. Their song "Chemical Bomb" was used in the episode Stranger, and their song "The Wild Sea" was used in the Bullet Belt From Dracula Mega64 documentary.
