The Top TenXW

1EvanescenceEvanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

Best band ever, not only because of the haunting voice of Amy Lee, but also because of the soulful lyrics they provide. I would definitely add them to any playlist because they come in a wide range of category(sort of.)and beings to you a new view of life.

Are you people laughing or what is wrong with you?! The cure number 4, sisters of mercy snot even in your so called top ten gothic bands list? I hope it's a joke!

Brilliant voice and some great guitar work, I love the music. one of the best bands ever can't wait till the new album comes out in october

Evanescence is Gothic Band

2HimHIM is a rock band from Helsinki, Finland. The band was formed in 1992 by vocalist Ville Valo, and bassist Mikko "Migé" Paananen, under the name His Infernal Majesty.

theres genuine love for the fans, theres variety in all his songs so it never is boring, new and old, him has a romantic way of taking the bitterness out of life and and presenting it with with heart and soul and the pain we each deal with from day to day in this life, him is committed and faithful to those who love them... - alyciaisaacs

4Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Best lyrics in history. Pete wentz brings creativity from the pen to the paper and stump unleashes it. Joe and Andy just Rock out! FOB

5The 69 Eyes

The 69 eyes aren't as great as HIM but thet=y are awesome and need to be more known around the world, there music is great and there one of my favorite bands, they deserve more respect!

6Bauhaus

This band is one of the leading pioneers of the whole Gothic genre! Goth/Punk at its finest. Although most you of reading this might not consider it Goth. Listen to "She's in parties"

Peter Murphy... God of all that is goth... Prince of dark... Prince of light... Enchanting... Elegant... Man... Bewitching... Beguiling..,. Spin a web around my soul...

Of course, all the hot topic kids have already plagued this list with HIM and Evanescence. Learn what goth is before you vote.

One of the best bands ever, Wednesday 13 is a God! - Jrock-LOVE

Just listen to them. Also check out Wednesday 13. Both amazing (same singer) - Jonerman

8Killing Joe

I think this was just a mis-spelling of Killing Joke, which is an amazing mixture between goth and punk. Night Time and Revelations are some of their best work.

9Sopor a Eternus
10The Red Chord

The Contenders

11Wednesday 13

Seen him live just as superb

12War Of Ages
13The CureThe Cure are an English rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member.

Listen to the Seventeen Seconds, Faith, and Pornography albums. Goth is not "hardcore" or "edgy". Goth is romantic, experimental (especially with The Cure), and atmospheric.

14The Pretty Reckless

WHAT? The pretty reckless absolutely deserves a spot in the top 10! Taylor Momsen has the prettiest voice ever, and the musicians, Mark, Jamie and Ben are amazing... All their songs are good, you should listen to all of them! - jubixe_

15Draconian

17Siouxsie & the Banshees
18Faith & the Muse

How is this not number one, Best band ever, Even made a band t-shirt. I love the singers and it just blends together so lovely Listen to the song Prodigal and Burning Season.
