Goth appreciation thread

Am I the only one in these forums who likes Goth music?

Probably.

Regardless, here are my favorite Goth/Gothesque bands:

The Cure - one of my all time favorite bands
AFI - (if you didnt know they're one of my favs, you're quite unobservant)
Bauhaus - fantastic band no one talks about any more.
Mission UK
Joy Division
Tiger Army (probably doesnt count, but they think they're goth)

New Order... no Joy Division. What's the difference? I like most of the stuff you said, but I wouldn't classify my tastes by genre because most of the time I only like a select few within a "category"...

How aboot:

Lou Reed (not really goth, but funky nonetheless)
Ziggy Stardust (not really goth, but funky nonetheless)

Good calls Cujo.

Bad calls Gickies, I would have thought someone who likes Radiohead and Sigur Ros (both of these groups recent albums would have been classified as pure goth if they came out in the '80's) would atleast comment.

Heavens no

By the way, I hope you noticed my slightly anti-U2 fandom posts in Everything You Know Is Wrong.

In that one you were posting in. I cant remember, I think it was about U2 making albums more often.


Another band who made a few Gothesque songs and has some gothy lyrics that was really good:

Smashing Pumpkins

Yeah, I thought about them, but I just wasnt comfortable in classifying them as goth. I know that usually people who are into them will like oldschool goth stuff, or vice versa. I guess the lyrics were definitly darker than most stuff, so that is kind of the same feeling as goth stuff.

Gee, arw...

I thought you would be the first to advocate the use of the words "Def Leppard" in this thread.

Bauhaus actually covered Ziggy Stardust, so it must be goth.
