Batcaver seems to be an old localized term for goth
. It was used in the Pacific Northwest in the 80s but on the East coast, few people have heard the term. The singular batcave
was also used.
I went to a Bauhaus concert last week and it was full of batcavers.
An old skool goth
who associates with the punk/post-punk offshoot goth culture of the 1980s for example Siouxsie & The Banshees, Bauhaus, The Cure.
Probably doesn't care for Marilyn Manson and death metal.
"You didn't tell me Jake was a goth?!"
"Don't call him that to his face, hes a batcaver"
"Oh, nice. Bauhaus are awesome."
an 80's slang term used to describe a person that listens to the cure and wears all black, sits at home, is sad...etc
dude, that guy at the cure concert was such a bat caver.
A fan of death rock. Not a goth, it's more like the step between punk and goth. The term comes from the name of a club, the Batcave.
Person #1: Look, it's a goth!
Person #2: No, it's a monochromatic punk!
Person #3: It's a batcaver, dumbasses.

Someone who likes wearing all black and listening to goth music. Another term for a goth.
That batcaver's idol is Robert Smith.
