In 268, the Visigoths ("the noble ones") seperated from the nomadic Goth tribes and invaded the Balkan peninsula, part of the Roman Empire. They practiced Arianism.
The Visigoths sacked Rome

A tribe of badass motherfuckers that migrated from Austria to Spain. They ousted the Muslims from Spain. If you were in their way, they'd physically remove you. They were into greeting people with a fucking axe to the face. The Visigoths would pretty much take other people's shit and call it their own.
1. Aw man, fucking run. Them crazy Visigoths are going to axe us in the face.

2. I didn't want them badass Visigoths to jack my shit so I just gave it to them in the first place.

A fake goth. Essentially, a visigoth is somebody who may be into gothic fashion, dark literature/music or are darkly-inclined in general, but don't typically associate themselves with the goth subculture... However they go around calling themselves a goth.

They don't like or care for the music of the goth scene, and say that because they have the 'goth mindset', or wear dark makeup and have a spooky wardrobe, it doesn't matter whether or not they're into the music. They're still a 'goth', according to them.

You are not a goth if you don't like the music. There is a difference between being darkly-inclined, and being a member of the goth subculture. It's like saying you're a metalhead even though you don't listen to metal, but because you have the clothes and the 'metal mindset', that's all that matters. Hate to break it to you, but it just doesn't work that way.
Goth 1: I've found that Bria is a pretty big visigoth. She doesn't care for goth music but goes around calling herself a goth because she's into dark makeup and 'gothic' fashion. I feel that people who do this are extremely discrediting the goth scene... Especially the music that started the subculture in the first place. It's unfortunate and upsetting...

Goth 2: Yikes... I agree, it is quite upsetting and discrediting... I've tried to talk to her about this and show her that there's a little more to it than just fashion, but she 'has the mindset so that's all that matters'. *disappointed sigh* It really is a shame that 'goth' has lost it's meaning as it's leaked into pop culture like this...

Dude, I was at this Siouxsie and the Banshees show, but I didn't see you. You must not have been a visigoth that night.

Vandal like. Derives from the tribe of the visigoths. It is a very interesting and ancient word.
The visigothic children started tearing up the furniture.
