107The Last Days of Jesus
108Project Pitchfork

The best band of the world. Peter spilles rules; Project Pitchfork, Santa hates you, Imaten. Why don't you listen to him?


This great Darkwave Gothic Rock Australian band has been touched the Gothic Rock scène for more than 23 years!

111Marilyn MansonMarilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s.

172?! There is no better band in this genre than Marilyn Manson, the group fronted by the King of Darkness himself, the band's namesake. Should be first on the list - Shake_n_Bake13

I love Marilyn Manson he's so awesome I love all his songs

112My Chemical RomanceMy Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

Influenced by Goth, certainly, but not Gothic Rock!

Since the 80's one of the finest Goth Rock bands of Belgium!

115Shadow Project

This is Rozz Williams and ever O's Gothic Rock band. I actually like them better than Christian Death. I recommend this band to all Goths.

116Kommunity FK
117Switchblade Symphony

How can Switchblade Symphony be this low?!? You idiots don't know what music is!

So you're saying crappy stuff is only liked by girls?!... Wait that actually kinda makes sense and I'm a girl.

Being a guy, I must say I don't see how anyone can like Switchblade Symphony, maybe it's a girl thing. I do like The Cure, Evanescence, The Sisters of Mercy, The Birthday Massacre, Malaise, Zeigeist, Phantogram, and 2012's With Sympathy by Ministry.

118Death in June
119Diary of Dreams

Evidently, one of the most important and best bands in the last 20 years. Scandalously underrated!
