  • Watching this it's kinda ironic that one of the most influential gothic bands is named bauhaus.

  • I’m only really bothered by the fact that Siouxsie and the Banshees are listed as deriving from Joy Division, Bauhaus, and The Cure when The Scream pre-dates the debut releases from two of those other bands and was the first full length album released by any of them… (and let’s be real, Joy Division’s four track ep is not as easy to identify as being ‘goth’ as SatB’s ten track lp…)

  • This video is so misleading and in parts wholly incorrect. The Goths were nomads yes, barbarians absolutely not. By all accounts of the Caesars and Roman generals that had dealings with them, they were honourable, honest, and incorruptible. The Romans even paid tribute to these Gothic tribes, often prizing their martial abilities so highly they were incorporated into Caesar's personal guard. There is so much more to cite and explain, what a bad video!
