Popular band associated with 'goth culture' though the latter of the two statements could (And should.. by the power of me. I command!) be perceived as false. Arguably while creating very accessible sounds which is in theory technically okay on CD. Is still unbearable to hear live as even some fans admit. Also the lead singer's voice would be without the infuence of Bush cause the Nato to attack America for not getting rid of unauthorised weapons of mass destruction. Although the editor of that voice is a very talented guy.

As said, the Evanescence sound is accesible, thus apeals to a wide audience and emotional and atmospheric complexity is kept to a minimal level. Amy Lee is partially responsible for an increase in depression reports as well amongst fans as amongst people who happen to posses radios although the validy of the claims of the prior one should not be taken seriously and should be laughed upon.

As also said the so called 'goth culture' it is associated with is a mistake maken by people who can't tell a pubical rebel dressed totally in black with extravagant apearance and heavily questionable intellectual abilities. From a goth who are mainly dressed totally in black with extravagant apearance and are able to - and will for the love of God do so whenever they have the chance - to demonstrate a highly developed range of knowledge and a philosphical way of approaching life.

With that said, altough the Evenescence listeres at least try to hide it with faking depression, all of the in the above paragraph subculture inhabitands generally think they're culture is the best in the world.

People who like Evanescence also have the intriging property of voting against urbandictionary difinitions which do not match there personal taste, thus this definition will probably be bannished to the final page.
Myself: i laik EvaneScenCe an oh i want 2 die!!!!!!!!!11!!!!

People with at least two milion years of evolution ahead of me: Hmm. Despite the idea that everyone is off course in title to his musical taste and his desire to live. I'm affraid experience has led me to question the latter of your statements.

Myself: but i dress blacker then j00??? dosnt that maek me more kewl????

An amazing rock band from Arkansas, USA. They released songs such as Bring Me To Life, Going Under, Everybody's Fool and My Immortal, although their older work and demos, in my opinion is better.

They are NOT fake, unlike some other bands ;)
Amy Lee is just amazing.

in actuallity it means: to dissipate or disappear like vapor
life is in a constant state of evanescence.

1) To disappear or vanish into a mist.
2) 00's rock band from Little Rock, America. Songs include Bring Me To Life and Everbody's Fool. Sometimes called Christian Rock because they are Christians; only one song on Fallen, Torniquet, mentions God or Christ.
2) Did you hear the new Evanescence song?

Probably the best band to ever come into existence. Amy Lee's voice is perfect; the contradiction between the music and her singing sounds wonderful. Typically called "goth rock", the band doesn't really fit under that definition.
The people at my school don't understand good music; no one here likes Evanescence.

Apart from the proper dictionary definition, Evanescence is a rock band with great lyrics. You don't have to be a depressed or be into rock to appreciate their music. Even if you're a content and happy person, you can to some extent relate to their songs. If they weren't any good, they wouldn't have so much publicity, think about it, how many other bands in the same genre have succeeded like them.
Eg) My Immortal - lost love?
Going Under - finally letting go?
Bring me to Life - self recognition?
Breathe No More -

Self-improvement is for the weak, the strong seek self-destruction.

Evanescence is one of the best bands EVER. With the enchantingly beautiful, harmonious voice of Amy Lee, and an awesome beat, there is NOTHING better! They were founded by Amy Lee and Ben Moody (who left the band durring thier European tour in October of 2004).
"I just got the new Evanescence CD/DVD 'Anywhere But Home', and it ROCKS!"
"I Love Amy Lee of Evanescence, her voice is so beautiful.

A tragically underestimated rock band hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, U.S. Often known by idiots for "calling themselves gothic," "ripping off Lacuna Coil," and other overconformed demi-insults. Most known for the songs "My Immortal" and "Bring Me to Life." People generally forget that Evanescence has a large collection of songs pre-Fallen.

Ev have covered many songs, most notably "Tourniquet" ("My Tourniquet") by Soul Asylum and "Thoughtless" by Korn.
Annabelle: Despite how their lead vocalist always tries to go around saying "Oh, I'm such a demi-goth."
