Another term for deathrocker, someone that enjoys deathrock (which has absolutely NOTHING to do with metal).
Usually, the goth punk can be identified by a very zombiefied appearance; mixing punk and goth with a heavy DiY (do-it-yourself) ethic. Their attire usually consists of layers of torn black, white, and green fishnets, heavy combat boots, ripped t-shirts, leather pants or bleached jeans, and a leather jacket/vest full of band patches, studs, designs, plastic bones, etc. Many of them have huge, teased hair, and a very popular style for both men and women is the death-hawk, a wider, teased version of the mohawk.

Goth punks (or deathrockers) can be thought of as the missing link between goth and punk. They're not any more rambunctious or outspoken than regular goths or punks; they just have different tastes.
Hey, look at that goth punk! He looks just like Johnny Slut!

oh nanashi, you forgot to include the Cure in your bands of early goth punk.

it seems your definition and mine share a few good points, but i'm defining "new" Goth Punk. not the "true" Goth Punk of the 70s and 80s.
the Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees *ARE* in fact the true definition of Goth Punk, anything today is just crap

Sorry Phalkon. It's not really new. Goth Punk came about a little bit before Good Charlotte and co. Well, actually, waaaay before. Try the '70s.
Anyway, punks who dress like goths isn't really new. I'm thinking of Siouxsie Sioux and Dave Vanian, in particular... Then, there were the deathrockers--Christian Death, Shadow Project, etc. Sometimes the Misfits are included, sometimes not.
By the way, it may be worth mentioning that Trent Reznor and Marilyn Manson claim Rozz Williams was an influence on their work.
Zombies, sex, death, and burning crosses... What's not to love?

Goth Punk (or Gothic Punk) is the definition of the roots of dark punk, which is what Goth is. They were originally called DEATHROCKERS, or DEATH PUNKS. In the beginning heydays of punk rock(late 1970's/early 1980's) there were bands like TSOL from Orange County, Siouxsie & The Banshees from the UK, and Chritian Death from L.A. They created a dark form of punk that had defied the borders of the Anarcho/Peace Punks (from the UK), and American Hardcore punks (espeically the Anit-Fashion types) tastes.

Musically, the term goth punk today helps define the sound of bands that have an old school hardcore punk (aka street punk or Thrash) sound with dark lyrics and optionally added keyboard/symphonic samples and electronics. Since goth has strayed away from its punk roots with the rise of Nu-Metal, EBM, and Emo-Pop, the rebellious reaction is more extremely "punk" style goth bands arising in the underground.

A goth that is also punk. Someone in between labels. People who rag on musicians, like the two peoplw that have posted so far have no right to do so because they arent the ones making millions of dollars. for people like this, see idiot
people that judge everyone that is better at something than they are, should quit whining and find something better to do than rag on musicians over the internet.

The new craze of fashion and mainly music. In all actuality, this is just normal punk with the "musicians" wearing goth clothes (i.e. all black, spikes, shredded clothes, arm bands to the elbow, stuff from Salvation Army, and multicolored hair). Bands like this are Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Avril Lavigne, etc...

If you actually listen to the lyrics of their songs and compare them to those of Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, or Rob Zombie, you'll find that you're just listening to whiny people with less production work, weaker non-distorted guitars, and cheesy lyrics.
Girl: yo! i just snagged this sweet tie from goodwill, now i look Avril
Guy: tight! i just bought Good Charlotte's new cd, i'm the coolest dude EVER!
Goth Guy: *stabs both with wrist spikes, spits on them, and steals their shit*
