Top Ten Best Goth Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 9XW

161Sweet Ermengarde

Besides all this non-Gothic-Rock bands in a vote for Gothic-Rock bands this one actually really IS a Gothic-Rock band.

It is one of the best gothic bands since a long time

Fantastic modern gothic rock at its dark finest!

162New Zero God

A great band missing from the list.

163Kindred Spirits

Swedish true goth rock!

164The Dukes
165Catholic Spit
167Two Witches
168Emilie Autumn

She's not even a band and most of her songs are crap. She's a feminist and she hates ALL men because she was abused, excuse me, she wasn't abused by EVERY single men, was she?! And this is coming from a girl. She's making too much of a big deal. Also she uses her mental illness to get away with everything, even though "she doesn't let her illness define her". Yeah sure.

Hard to believe one of her inspirations is Moi Dix Mois. If she's inspired by, then she's doing something wrong because she sounds like crap compared to Moi Dix Mois.

169Fools Dance
170RedRed is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

I don't know if they are characterized by goth but as a band of any kind, they are fantastic.

They're more Christian than Goth.

171Ghost Dance
172My Dying BrideMy Dying Bride are an English doom metal band formed in Bradford, England in 1990. To date, My Dying Bride have released twelve full-length studio albums, three EPs, one demo, one box set, four compilation albums, one live album, and one live CD/DVD release.

Best goth/doom rock/metal band of all time come on seriously the singer is English and German and the band produces English and German songs = Pure Class

Best goth metal band. No further discussion!

173Jesus on Extasy

Direct Injection, Lies, Heartless, and Sometimes are the best songs by them, I personally think!

174Skinny Puppy

Amazing. This 80's goth band is wait got me into goth in first place.

Why oh WHY they're not in the top ten? Half of you PB&J choking millennials probably would even a list if it wasn't for Nivek& Co.!


Great band with great hits like Explode, Cyanide, and Blitzkreig

176Seraphim Shock

Surprised nobody else included these.
