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.
- The Sisters of Mercy
- The Cure
- Alien Sex Fiend
- Joy Division
New; The line between goth and EBM/"cyber" has gotten pretty blurry...
- The Birthday Massacre
- Abney Park (steampunk darlings, yes, but they sound like a goth band to me)
- Bella Morte (blurring over into punk/nu-metal, but they wearenough eyeliner to rank as goth in my book)
- The Cruxshadows
And a special award goes to The Swans for being the most bleakly depressing band of all time.
