Goth, Death rock, Post punk

Gothic rock (alternatively called goth rock or simply goth) is a genre of alternative rock that originated during the late 1970s. Originally, bands from the genre had strong ties to the English punk rock and emerging post-punk styles.

Deathrock (or death punk) is a term used to identify a fusion of punk rock and gothic rock which incorporates elements of horror and spooky atmospheres within a goth-punk style and first emerged most prominently in the West Coast of the United States and London during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Post-punk was a popular musical movement in the mid to late 1970s, following on the heels of the initial punk rock explosion of the early 1970s. The genre retains its roots in the punk movement but is more introverted, complex and experimental.[1] Post-punk laid the groundwork for alternative rock by broadening the range of punk and underground music, incorporating elements of Krautrock (particularly the use of synthesizers and extensive repetition), Jamaican dub music (specifically in bass guitar), American funk, studio experimentation, and even punk's traditional polar opposite, disco, into the genre.
t found a firm place in the 1980s indie scene, and led to the development of genres such as gothic rock, industrial music and alternative rock.
