Meet Ace, the (temporary) new bassist of Gorillaz. Ace is Ringo-ing original bassist and band "founder" Murdoc Niccals, who's currently doing a stretch in a British prison for smuggling -- though he insists that he's actually being framed by a demon called "El Mierda," whom he met in a club during the taping of the music video for "Strobelite" and honestly, we've seen anime with less complicated storylines.
However, Ace isn't just some random dude the band found through a wanted ad on Craigslist. His first claim to infamy came decades ago as the cool-as-ice leader of the Gangreen Gang, old nemeses of none other than the Powerpuff Girls. But that was during the '90s, when getting beat up by child superheroes was still a viable career option (like travel agent). Now middle-aged and balding, Ace has found a more positive outlet for his antisocial tendencies: being an evil bassist.
