    Darkwave is a legit term (used since the 80s, especially in the German area) and definitely not the reason why everyone hates goth. The reason for that are dumb “alternative” magazines and labels trying to sell their crap like Blutengel or Cybergoff-techno as gawfick or darkwave. I'd personally would see darkwave mostly as an umbrella term –than a genre– for dark, elegic music that developed within the 80s new wave movement. You can split it into subgenres like Ethereal, Neoclassical or Electrowave if you will, but for some bands finding a legit genre tag can be hard – in that case the darkwave term can be very handy.
