Easily identified by their masks and matching costumes, The Aquabats are perhaps most recognized for their comedic persona in which they claim to be crime-fighting superheroes. 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 continuously evolved over the course of their career, starting as an eight-member ska band before reinventing themselves in the early 2000s as a more commercial sounding new wave-influenced rock quintet. The band's current musical style mixes rock and punk rock with elements of new wave, ska and synthpop.
The Aquabats have released five studio albums, two extended plays and one compilation, among other recordings. As of March 2012, The Aquabats! Super Show!, a live-action musical action-comedy television series starring the band, airs on American cable channel The Hub.
