Okay so a couple days ago I was talking to Mom about music in the car, and I brought up the subject of, I quote, “goth music.” She didn’t believe it exists, I mentioned The Cure as an example (despite their own aversion to the label). She talked to one of her coworkers and he said, melodramatically, “these millennials are ruining the eighties!” Then the next day we were having lunch along with my dad and my sister. I mentioned Siouxsie and the Banshees as another example of goth music, Mom said she didn’t know she liked that genre so much. My dad refuses to believe goth music exists, and my younger sister is giving me shit over not specifying I meant gothic rock. So- first off, does gothic rock exist? Does goth music in general exist? And if so, what are some examples of bands that play that genre of music?
