Goths are a sub-culture of punk, they have similar views to punks as well. Goth is simply a name that has been put on these people by the closed minded view of people. Most goths become goths because they have been rejected by society for their opinions of the world. Gothic groups are simly gatherings of people whos views are seen as being too 'radical' for the apparent civilised society to accept. Goths are not satanists, they are simply people who are free of prejudices so this has attracted satanists but the gothic culture also has attracted people from many other religions and sexualities because of the abscence of prejudices. Goths DO NOT mutilate bodies or anything like that they are just open minded and are open towards the darker parts of life. Goths mainly listen to black metal or the more melodic type, gothic metal. Marilyn Manson is not gothic he is a poser that uses the goth culture to make him seem rebelious. Goths are not necessarily rebelious an obvious sense and many goths are doctors, lawyers and even judges. Gothic bands include Abominant, Man Slaughter Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth
If for some reason decides that they do not like goths save your f***ing breathe, we don't care so don't just shout stuff at us in the street.
