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."

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.
