  • The Merry Thoughts are better than Children On Stun and Rosetta Stone.

  • Darkwave Baby! 👶🦇

  • Damn this is a really hard one for me as I was lucky to run and manage a club, zine, booking agent etc. so I got to meet many bands in the 90's. All your lists are 100% badass but I can't pick and choose as I equally love them all even some of the crappy ones no offense. I'll just say I was so goth I shit bats. lol kidding. Great fun video! Actually Rosetta Stone and The Wake might be my favorite 90's goth band. I actually got those 2 bands first promo CDs from Cleopatra and the rest is history. A++++

  • London after Midnight is viciously underrated. Selected scenes of the end of the world should be considered one of the best rock albums of the 90's

  • no Sunshine Blind?

  • I'm a little disappointed not to see "The Merry Thoughts" on this list. "Low Violet" is one of my favorite goth songs.

  • Sopor Aeternus.

  • This is so fucking fascinating.

  • This is your pref and that's awesome, so not meaning to disagree at all. Just wanted to say that, interesting to me, in clubs in the US ~95 to 99 almost none of these were big on the play lists / crowd favorites. I wonder what that says after all this time! I have no contact with the modern goth world, but was a die hard scene kid in the 90s. I miss it!

  • I just found out about Nosferatu about two weeks ago, and I fell in love

  • WOW! I feel old! thanks Kelly for this list.

  • Type o negative <3

  • Invaluable resource for nowadays it's not like I can go read a bunch of reviews and find comps easier. Btw corpus delicti is my favorite for sure jus too good and too goth lol. Thanks Kelly

  • what is your opinion on Evanescence?

  • So many bands in here I've never even heard of and so many I have heard of left out entirely… Hmm.

  • I would have to include Mors Syphilitica… And Requiem in White in the 80s list even tho they lasted till 95 😍😍

  • Absolutely perfect vid, list, and you.

  • I evry time stay obfuscate by your shine;

  • Oh I love this!! I’ve been into goth since I was a kid, and although the music was my first taste of goth, until recently with Spotify becoming so accessible, I’ve had a hard time discovering bands and getting to enjoy the music as much as I like. Not to mention the scene in my local areas isn’t exactly very… deathly… so I haven’t had much chance to get involved with live music. Super happy you’ve been doing series. Makes me feel like I can learn and not feel like I’m being judged or excluded for my being “goth enough”. 🖤

  • I was listening to the cure at 4. So yea goth babies are real.

  • Type o. Negative?

  • A lot of great bands! For me, The Awakening (although the more recent albums are killer), Inkubus Sukkubus, and Age of Heaven are great additions from that time period.

  • I was born in 1991. I'm a Sensitive Christian Wiccan of Native American ancestry. The most loved Gothic Metal band right now is Babymetal.

  • Fields of the Nephilim IT the best Goth band of 90' …Elizium album is great, but IT just my opinion. Ciao

  • What about type o negative

  • My Dying Bride?

  • Two witches, Nosferatu and Corpus delicti 🖤

  • Great video some excellent choices 😀❤️😀

  • I'm loving your channel. It's good to discover some new (old) bands. Nosferatu are by far one of my favourite ever bands and it was good to see Rosetta Stone in there too. There were a few I haven't heard of, so I'm going to give them a listen and expand my musical knowledge. Keep up the good work 🕷🕸

  • Faith &the Muse is ranked too low. No Switchblade Symphony? Perhaps you can do a fetish goth rock video (or have you?) then you can include Athamay; The Nuns; Dead Souls Rising, etc. It will get younger people more aware of them. Of course, not all these songs are good but some of them are damn great

  • Shes such a conformist

  • The Shroud

  • I'm a baby bat and this helps me out a lot. London After Midnight is my favorite goth band so far

  • You're so cute and hilarious! That part at 0:30 cracked me up. Thank you for the awesome band suggestions. You made my day! 🙌 Greetings from Bulgaria! 🦇

  • Thanks for including the album Tourniquets by Children on Stun, however Grooving In Green are a split from COS. They feature members from Nephilim , original Children on Stun and Solemn Novena. Are current and are writing their 4th album, last year our 3rd album was released along with two singles. We are getting ready to tour and writing at the moment. Feel free to check us out 🙂

  • where is Fields of the nephilim? they are the best best goth band and also inkubus sykkubus

  • Corpus Delicti would be in the 'greatest of all time' territory if their discography weren't so short. I don't even know some of your picks, and if you have Corpus Delicti at #1 I must check them out!

  • Corpus Delicti is my #1 too!
    God, we have so much in common

  • Love Faith And The Muse, both their soft ethereal material and their heavier / punkier songs like "Sovereign" and "Blessed." You were born the year I graduated — how did I get so old?

  • I did not realize Paralysed Age had a new album. One of my favorites as well. Thanks for the info.

  • Great music!! My go to 90's band is Diary of Dreams. Love your videos.
