retards, who live at the mall, and wear black, thinking that makes them Hardcore. They listen to Slipknot and swear by corey taylors poor attempts at true lyrical ecstasy. They wear the clothing of otherwise respectable bands, causiung those who actually enjoy the music of said bands, want to puke. They tend to say things that praise their own pitiful deaths yet, when faced with true death they shit themselves and begin to wimper "please don't kill me, i want to live!" They creat many misconceptions about real goths and in actuality most of them are just metal heads, with no lives.
i enjoy the company of my friend brian, despite the fact that he is kind of a mallgoth.

a mallgoth also known as a "juggalo" is a wannabe goth, usually straight up white-trash. A typical mallgoth outfit consists of a poser band shirt(evanescence,Korn,HiM,Cradle of filth,insane clown posse etc.),skater shoes, tripp pants,studded belt a pentagram as well as eyeliner all over their face. They are the ones responsible for making Marilyn Manson look like a bad man, they misinterpret his lyrics and sometimes even shoot up schools in his name, Manson most likely never intended for this.

They do not listen to real gothic music, besides maybe the cure. Most of them have never heard of siuxsie & the banshees,Bauhaus,sisters of mercy, christian death,alien sex fiend,joy division or any of the other real goth band there are.

many claim to be "wiccan" this offends most pagans. they also love anime more than anything on earth... i could never find an explanation for this...
"I'm goth because I'm a wiccan who wears tripp pant,likes anime and listens to evanescence" - mallgoth
"really? who was the first goth band" - true goth

"um...uh... i cant tell you cause it's a goth only secret, i swore i wouldn't with my own blood" - mall goth

"you mean you actually cut yourself cause you thought it would make you goth?" - goth

"um...yeah... Amy Lee told me too" - mall goth

They think they're Goths and sadly so do other people including even Metalheads.
They wear Hot Topic clothing and coincidentally they listen to music like Slipknot, Korn, H.I.M, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir (I still like them though), Rob Zombie, Marylin Manson, Mudvayne, lots of Nu-Metal in general and then some real Metal too (mostly older stuff) and they think their "Metal" music is Goth. They're probably worse than this "Emo" trend because they actually think they're Goth or Metalhead and so do other people; there's probably more of them than there are real Goths.

Someone who believes they are a Goth, when in reality, they are conformers to a class of people they believe to be "cool"
Identification Tips-
1. Excessive Piercing (Beyond an ear or lip)
2. Hairstyles beyond unnatural, a True Goth may color hair white or black or some natural tone, while mall goths prefer green, pink, purple, and bright neon red
3. Fascination with the store Hot Topic
4. An even bigger fascination with Twilight and Edward "twinkle-toes" Cullen

5. A preference of My Chemical Romance over true Gothic music like Theater of Tragedy and Saviour Machine
6. Complete lack of knowledge of the word Azrael
7. If you mention Edward Cullen they shriek like Hannah Montana fans
8. Belief that Paganism is the same as Demon Worship
9. Belief that Veganism is the same as Paganism
10. Pentagram necklaces are not a sure sign, but may be worn by Mall-Goths
11. Belief that Edward Cullen is Jesus Christ and that Jesus Christ never existed, even though we know a guy named Jesus lived 2000 years ago and used magic to heal people and blood sacrificed himself, making him a better Goth than all these people
Mall Goth Hunter: "Edward Cullen"
Group of Mall Goths: "EEIIEIIIIIII He is so hot, I bet he shops at Hot Topic"
Jesus Christ: "Wow that's kinda creepy"
Mall Goth Hunter"Very creepy"
Mall Goth:"Who are you talking to? He doesn't exist"
Jesus Christ:"I'm standing right here."
Mall Goth:"Doesn't matter, Ozzy Osbourne says you don't exist, so you don't exist."
Mall Goth Hunter:"Ozzy never said anything like that, come on Jesus, let's go talk to Azrael"
Mall Goth:"Who?"

A (mostly) teenage subculture, characterized by the wearing of eyeliner, bondage pants, baggy t-shirts and lots of black. Usually associated with nu-metal music. One of the only subcultures in which mental issues were a celebrated thing. Typically critical of "preppy" youth culture, which may cause people to think mallgoth kids are hypocritical (because OMG, they PURCHASE their clothes at MALLS! What a mortal sin!) Not "true" goths, not "true" metalheads, and sure as heck not any other subculture...one wonders who the real conformists are, after a while. Nowadays it's more rare to spot a mallgoth, because they are a dying breed, much like almost every ruggedly individualistic counterculture in this country.
Go ahead. Laugh at the mallgoth because he dresses like The Crow. Sneer at him because he's a teenager. Make snide remarks at his eyeliner and his CD collection, and think nothing of him because he's a poor, broken lunatic.

Just remember how strong the spirit of youth and rebellion can be...and remember that the young and the wild often grow to become the brilliant and the revered.

Mallgoths are the groups of emotionally insecure adolescents (although some can reach 18+...) who are typically seen loitering in the malls of North American suburban shopping outlets. Their dominant characteristics (typical to both sexes) are makeup, multiple body piercings, leather, blackened hair,sad faces, melodrama, angry distortion based passive aggressive music (see. Slipknot),and the embrace of masochism.

They are a branch of Gothic subculture.
Go to Wikipedia and look for Gothic subculture or the band slipknot. Shit, just go to a shopping center; mallgoths are everywhere.
