Okay, guys. So I've searched a good deal and can't find an Aquabats thread. So I decided to make on myself.

I just saw them at Six Flags Magic Mountain, which was actually a surprisingly good venue. They were so awesome live, and I just had to come back here and make a thread for them! I have pictures of the show and a picture with MC Bat Commander if anyone wants to see.

So what are your favorite songs? Favorite member?
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

I loooove the aquabats. Musically they are very underater. My favorite (former) member is Chainsaw but I have never had the opportunity to see them live. Return of the aquabats really is a great ska album.

He only recorded on their second album. He really didnt do much for the band really. He also wasnt famous at all then. SO tell your friend to take his blink 182 CDs and soljah Boi remixes and shove them up his idiot box.

I've seen this band more times than I can count. They're home town heroes for our town. I talked to the drummer Ricky Fitness at my old work when he came in to get cheese fries. Cool guy.

oh believe me, i've told him before. you seem to know what he listens to pretty well too, lol. ugh, hes one of those kids who thinks he's "grown up" because he "used to listen to punk" and listens to ****ty rap now. he also thinks he can rap really well, but all his **** is about how someone he doesn't like is a homosexual, how much weed he sells/smokes, and how often he gets laid. really thought provoking lyrics if you know what i mean.

If only he could write good lyrics about tarantulas and pizza on fridays and chewbacca chewbacca lake titicacca.

My favorite song is either Pizza Day(I really do miss having a pizza day) or I Fell asleep on my arm...or Tiny Pants. I really can't pick just one, they have a lot of songs I really like.
Yes, I'm from California, yes I like Hockey, no I do not like the Ducks, yes I like the Kings!

Saw them once. It was entertaining, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see them again. Their music is pretty bad and there are better bands who put on quirky entertaining live shows. (The Phenomenauts, for instance.)

Chainsaw was actually on guitar at the show I saw because Eagle Bones Falcon Hawk was getting married.

I only have 1 friend who likes them, its a shame...but we see them as many times as possible. The only bands ive seen more are locals and the adicts.

I want them to come back to Chicago. That would make my year. They've all I've been listening to for like the past week, I've been on a ska kick. Well they're awesome, so they deserve this bump.

EDIT: I have my ringtone to be Super-Rad and it went off in class, but the teacher laughed so hard when he heard the song title that he didn't do anything.
