The MC Bat Commander (MCBC), is the lead singer and fearless leader of the Aquabats ! The albums also name him as The Caped Commander or The Bat Commander. The MCBC is the headman who, with his varying voice and humorous lyrics, can bring many different feelings to songs. He is very charismatic on stage by jumping around, hand jiving, dancing, and engaging the crowd at live shows.
The Rise To PowerEditDeep in the caverns of the volcanic trenches of Aquabania live a people who are very hot all the time. But rent was cheap, so one day, The M.C. Bat Commander was born. Even at an early age, he was commanding his parents to cut his hair and get him a glass of water. Life was good for the little commander, until one day, it just wasn't that great anymore. The Young lad said to himself "You know, life isn't so great anymore." So he left the volcanic trench in search for his destiny.
He got a job at a local tourism bureau giving tours to tourists, yet still his heart burned to do something else. So he moved into a warehouse where they shipped clothes to children all over the world for free. A noble cause, yes. But the profit margin was less than minimal. One day while he was contemplating his future (or lack thereof), he looked at the ground and found a flyer for a party at the Melony Hill where 'Space Monster M' was performing. "Cool" he said. "I like Rock and Roll music, it's quite dope." Little did he know that this so-called band 'Space Monster M' wasn't really a band at all, but a space monster from outer space! Hellbent on enslaving the people of the world, this vile enemy would stop at nothing. Space Monster M's intention was to conquer the small island of Aquabania first because of its semi-unknown location and mysterious reputation. He knew that the natives were weak because they wasted their lives on music, TV, Internet, and other worthless forms of entertainment.
The Young Commander was shocked to find that his homeland was in danger, so in mock terror, he started to scream at the top of his lungs, kindling the annoyance of many of the surrounding people and causing his boss to let him go.
Now the Commander was really free to gather troops together to battle this menace. So, in a hollowed log, he led a handful of valiant warriors across the ocean to find help.
And so became The Bat Commander, fearless leader of the Aquabats whose goal is to one day battle and defeat Space Monster M and free their home from slavery and turmoil. Recently, The Bat Commander added "M.C." to his name because he secretly wants to be a rapper.
"After watching The Source Awards, I knew exactly what I wanted to be - an M.C., because Hip Hop is fresh and dope, and I really connected with the lifestyle. It's da bizomb!" --The M.C. Bat Commander 2000 (*bling*bling*)
