Goth rock

Gothic rock (sometimes called goth rock) is a genre of rock music that originated during the late 1970s. Originally bands from the genre had strong ties to the English punk rock and emerging post-punk styles. The genre itself was defined as a separate movement from punk rock during the early 1980s. Gothic rock artists deal with dark themes and intellectual movements such as gothic horror, Romanticism, existential philosophy, and nihilism. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Peter Murphy

    "no matter how much your influenced by a genre if you don't play that sound your not a part of that scene" When it comes to Goth that rule really get's pushed aside. A prime example would be Sopor Aeternus. Many people in the goth scene wouldn't flinch if you labeled them a goth band. Despite the fact that they sound nothing like Bauhaus. Nor do they share similar influences. Yet, Sopor are still considered Goth. This happens a lot within the Goth scene. The whole argument of a band having to "sound like a goth band" only get's thrown out there when the scene wants to distance itself from something they deem too mainstream or is associated with a group they see as "undesirable" (i.e. metalheads, fans of Marilyn Manson). My argument isn't to say goth and metal are the same. I'm saying that there's definite over lap between the two in terms of fanbase, influences, and in aesthetic. Which a lot of Goths aren't willing to admit because of the previous reasons listed.
