  • John McBanshee was a fecking legend R.I.P sir.

  • Watching this in 2020 in the middle of a global pandemic and this has brought me joy!

  • Jaz looks possessed.

  • Did TOTP’s ever come around to letting bands actually play, or are all these lip synced?

  • And a big one handed slow clap to the scumbags at the BBC for making virtually all these lip-sync.
    I've seen a fair few of that line up play live of which mostly they were very capable, just a shame the to55ers at the BBC wanted to portray their happy-clappy pop bu11shit!
    And I must also question their inclusion of some of those acts, FFS who signed this off? Stock, Aitken & Waterman? Those ba5tards should by tried for crimes against humanity for what they inflicted!

  • Goth Rock had a Huge Influence on Soda Stereo in the 80s, the best Latinoamerican band ever

  • Marilyn Manson is NOT Goth!!!!! Come on BBC!

  • wow this was great siouxsie and marilyn.sisters of mercy also awesome but their performance seemed kind of watered down.the beauy of poison is a great song and im not normally into pj harvey and wouldnt consider it goth but fuck phonies anyway and down by the water is a good song.

  • Depeche Mode Goth? Never

  • I grew up loving DM, but I don't consider them Goth. And what is Strawberry Switchblade doing here? Even DCD's first four albums are more gothic sounding than that…

  • Manson here? wtf?

  • What is that song during the intro?

  • Methinks the BBC have not doneth their homework because a third of these bands are not Goth

  • Someone once asked me if I'd heard of PJ Harvey, and I was like 'No, who are they?'.

    I still don't know.

  • 58 min doc.. ten yt ad breaks.. impressive ratio.

  • Siouxie is the dogs bollocks

  • Who ever put this together is full of bollocks with Shakespeare's Sisters were more mainstream, next PJ Harvey is not nor as ever been Goth she is Pop Bitch and final Little Bitch Boy Brian is not the new king of Goth far from it he's just a little tosser bitch that needs to taught what is Goth and not.. Never been a fan of TOTP was more of a Old Grey Whistle Stop at least they had real Goth Band's perform. Fucking BC Tossers

  • There’s no more goth than Bauhaus. Period.

  • who the hell puts these things together why the following acts are on here I don't know they have never had anything to do with the Goth scene(however mixed up people are with what they think is Goth etc) the Cure/the Banshees / KJ / Depeche Mode(ffs) /strawberry switchblade / pj Harvey / shakespears sister / Marilyn manson

  • adverts suck youtube sux

  • Specimen track is very glam sounding yet they have a goth look.Nice guitar hook but I never really became a fan… I prefer more along the veins of TSOM, Bauhaus, JD, DM, The Cure, Lebanon Hanover, etc.
