Goth is a bonified subculture originating in England in the early 1980s, but now found throughout the world.
Gothic Rock: an offshoot of post punk; dark music often about introspective and romantic themes.
German musician "Nico" is credited as the first Goth Album, while Jim Morrison's dark stage presence initially shaped the aesthetics of Goth Rock.
Know These Names: The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, All About Eve, Zola Jesus, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, and The Cult.
Another Spinoff of Goth is "Deathrock". As listeners of Deathrock are most undeniably gothic, they are grouped together in the same clique here at Hella Cliques.
