TRUE: A Goth is someone who is usually into the darker side of the world. Where punk is mostly about government, freedom, and politics, Goth is mostly about religion(theology), philosophy, and mysticism. A true Goth is not a depressed suicidal person. They are deep into thought and feeling, know who they are. A goth, not Gothic, or Gothics (that's socially incorrect, it really pisses them off, at least the real ones, not the poseurs), generally do not worship Satan, although you can be a Goth and of any religion, many are Christian, and I know a few that are Catholic. Goths likes to be individual and often creates or modify's their clothing. Usually consisting of mainly black. Spikes are usualy not a goth thing. Tribal designs and religios related jewlry are common, such as crucifixes and pentagrams. Most are very intelligent and creative, and dont necissarily do drugs, think about murder, cut themselves, or sacrifice animals, and again with the worship Satan thing. Although many of them are pagan or wiccan.
If someone "becomes a Goth" because they couldn't get any friends or are depressed and angry all the time, they are most likely a poseur, actually just take out the whole most likely part. You are who you are because it is who you are, not because of the things that make you a poseur. The music a Goth may listen to can range to almost anything. Usually it consists of Gothic( ex. London After Midnight), Goth rock (69 Eyes) , metal(Slayer), electronic...

2003 // The Year We Made Contact:
During nuclear spring 2003 four motley-looking guys dressed in black with heavy make up and black leather charm met on earth to design a new synthetic dawn. 4 AM, adrenachaos rising, bodies sweating, hearts beating.
They had a dream: creating a rock 'n' roll band with a gritty, highly seducing blend of punk attitude and industrial sonic attacks. Machines meet sweat and blood: enter the matrix, neuromancer, rust. Theta Wave Resonance. Theta Division growing.
Victor Love, Grace Khold, Darin Yevonde, Brian Wolfram.
Dope Stars Inc. was born.
Adore the future, worship revolution.
On the 8th of May 2003, 8.53 PM, the band started to work on its first, raw and powerful release in a rusty and dirty cellar beneath the shallow suburbia of Rome. The result was "10.000 Watts Of Artificial Pleasures": a storming melting pot of industrial overloads, R'n'R razor-shaped guitars, Goth decadence, fast and furious punk attitude, pop melodies and techno hammer-beats.
Recording was such carnage, Grace sleeping on the floor, Victor smashing guitars and computers, Darin travelling all time, drinking too much red bull to stay awake. Those were weeks of lust, wild parties and good morning headaches, but Dope Stars Inc. always stayed on the track, guitars roaring and machines burning.
The EP blew the press away in few weeks, getting an unbelievable feedback from magazines and collecting top score reviews and a...

Sean Brennan is an excellent performer.

alot of defonitions i have seen on here put this compleatly blows goths out of proportion.more...
1] goth/gothic is but a genre that is usually associated with the more morbid-er thigs around. if a certain someone *coungh* FLUFFY *cough* was to find a dead animal carcas(AKA road kill), we would find another one and put it on the top of those minature racing cars and drive it around, seeing who could get the most scares. but thats not necessarilly goths. i do that, but that can be concidered sick, inhumane and wrong. but hey, it gets a few laughs going.
2] goths are NOT people who are always depressed, thats those fucking whiney EMOs, with their stars, stripes and fucking converse and MCR and fall out boy and all those fucking gay bands with fucking side fringes. *cough* sean wilson *cough*
3] goths DONT slit their wrists, once again, thats those tacky litle inbreds called EMOs.*cough* sean wilson *cough*
4] they usually have a morbid sense of humor.
5] some goths like different music tastes. i for one love dimmu borigr, immortal and cries of distortion.
6] some goths take part in burning churches *cough* FLUFFY *cough* but thats mainly associated with SATANISM.
7] goths arent usually satanists but some do perish the thought o...
