My favorite band. They started playing 1976 and they still play today. They've released over 20 albums and they aren't limited to just the 80s because they released many albums in the 90s as well, plus a 2000 album and a 2004 album. Robert Smith is the lead singer. In the 70s, the band used to be called The Easy Cure.

BTW, The Cure is NOT classified as goth rock. The media wants to call them that, but they're not. Robert Smith himself denies the title. They're actually considered New Wave. They did one or two goth rock albums, but that was it. In fact, their first album or two was actually punk music!
Maybe we didn't understand, not just a boy and a girl...It's just the end of the, end of the world!

The best fucking band in the entire fucking world.

Lovely lyrics. Orgasmic voice. Dark, huge, echoing sound, bouncing off the insides of your fucking head. Spiraling noise disintegrating in your fucking mind. Amazing words making you want to fucking melt, seethe, love, die. A beautiful voice that just kills you. An amazing fucking band that never grows old.

And Robert Smith is just... fuck. Fucking amazing.

No fucking questions asked.
"Now that I know that I'm breaking to pieces I'll pull out my heart, and I'll feed it to anyone. Crying for sympathy, crocodiles cry for the love of the crowd and the three cheers from everyone." - The Cure, Disintegration

The cure are a band that has inspired each new generation of goth.
The makers of quite possibly the greatest album ever concieved
with Disintegration.
They didn't create Goth but frontman Robert Smith popularised it and is the best example of goth in the 80's. Roberts haircut can be seen in many places with the best known Edward scissorhands.
30 years on and still going strong.
"Its easier for me to get closer to heaven than ever feel whole again." The cure's Disintegration. GENIUS!

"It doesnt matter if we all die" One Hundred Years from Pornography. Sadly true.

One of the best Bands of the eighties. Now better known in music publications as "80's goth band the cure" which is accurate, but music journalists need to come up with a better descriptuion.

The best band ever. Not goth. They like messing with your head and your emotions and taking control of your last.fm charts.
People who say that they don't like The Cure haven't really listened to them, as well as retarded people who say they're emo.
You can get REALLY depressed or REALLY happy listening to them.
- I hate music.
- Just listen to The Cure, and you'll stop hating it.
