For me, Goth is someone/something that lacks bright colors or a cheery attitude.

I think that's somewhat related to "Emo".

There are just as many misconceptions about the place where the term "goth" originated; gothic architecture. When you say those words, people think 'ugh!, gloomy, old churches, but they're wrong. Romanesque churches are 'gloomy', and gothic are the ones with tall spires, lots of tall windows, and especially those gorgeous stained glass "rose" windows which are round. There's nothing 'gloomy' about them any more than there is about "goths" or "goth" music. I will try to post a picture of a gothic cathedral to my photo album and then you can see for yourself. By the way, the person who has this thread is very intelligent and well informed.

i'm glad you posted this. but don't attack the bands. i happen to like goth music and the "awful mallgaff" bands. it's not the band's fault that posers want to call themselves "goth". i mean would you expect cradle of filth (black metal) or evanescence (pop-nu metal-with-goth-flare) to give a public service announcement that says "hey if you like our music, guess what... you're not goth."?
besides maybe music evolved and you didn't notice just like how we came from the 'blues' to 'hard rock' to 'metal'. in case you didn't notice most of the bands you listed as goth are like 20 to 30 years old


I don't think he's really attacking theese other bands, but rather informing us of the original "Goth" I honestly don't feel he's attacking Evenesence or Nightwish (Which are some of the best bands ever)

True. But Goth isn't emo, and i think you understand that. But I'd like to make that point that it is difficult to name what is unique about 'emo' that seperates them from goth. It's like Moe'. You only understand it if ur an otaku. ^.^
