The Revenge of the Top Five Meme

Reply to this post and I will (eventually) respond with something for you to post your top five or ten of.

nuadha_prime asked for my Top Five Goth Bands.

Old; Joy Division technically pre-dates goth, and SoM, Bauhaus and The Cure have all stated that they aren't and never were goth. Which is sooooo goth.

  1. The Sisters of Mercy

  2. The Cure

  3. Alien Sex Fiend

  4. Bauhaus

  5. Joy Division




New; The line between goth and EBM/"cyber" has gotten pretty blurry...

  1. The Birthday Massacre

  2. Abney Park (steampunk darlings, yes, but they sound like a goth band to me)

  3. Ayria

  4. Bella Morte (blurring over into punk/nu-metal, but they wearenough eyeliner to rank as goth in my book)

  5. The Cruxshadows



And a special award goes to The Swans for being the most bleakly depressing band of all time.

I adore The Swans. I also adore Joy Division. Swans covering Joy Division makes me happy in my pants.

I also harbour fondnesses for Rosetta Stone, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Fields of the Nephilim and, of course, Siouxsie and the Banshees.

I HATE LJ memes, really I do. But, I'm sitting in my hotel room, on the outskirts of Dublin bored out of my gourd.

I have noticed how Goth and Industrial seem to have almost no boundaries between eachother now. I just recently started listening to goth again. My ex didn't like goth at all.

For your classic goth list, I would probably post almost the same list, but bumping Bauhaus up to #2. Otherwise, the same.

Of your new bands, I have only heard Cruxshadows, but liked what I heard. (I may have heard other at the club here but I have no clue what they are playing.)

Go ahead and hit me with a list.
