Top Ten Best Goth Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 4
78? These are more Goth than My Chemical Romance who are further up on the scale. I usually dislike bands with huge discographies but these were just an exception. Absolutely amazing. Some of my favourite songs are Heaven's Gaze, Nothing, Untrue, Birthday and Sophia.
What are bands like Lacuna Coil, Marilyn Manson and Evanescence doing on here?
Probably my favourite band of the dark scene - I won't call them Gothic rock because their newer stuff is certainly darkwave but I think their older stuff could be classed as it. They have some amazing songs and I've seen them live, met Rogue as well.
I wish people would do some research before they label Evanescence as Goth.
Some of my favorite music.V 2 Comments
Great band. Saw them supporting Billy Idol at Ingliston in 1991
This is amazing band with beautiful dark music and fantastic vocal.also they have vice texts in their songs. Why the hell they are not in top 10? Just listen to them and have an eargasm! )
One of my absolute favourites! Rarely do bands combine amazing, idealistic and unique music with theatrical elements. Truly unique! Not necessarily "goth" goth though.
At least number 5, there song dead girls are easy is one of the best songs ever, back in blood agen another great gothic song. Come on you can not miss them out of the top 10
Quite easy one of the best bands period. They can sound one way one song and totally different on another.
A mix of Type-O Negative, Sisters of Mercy and HIM all wrapped into one tragically beautiful package, great work guys.
TheThey should be in the top 10.. com'onV 1 Comment
Want to know what's the closest thing to Gothic Rock? No, it's not Gothic Metal, it's Post-Punk. All the essential Goth albums (The Cure's "Pornography", Siouxsie & the Banshee's "Juju", Bauhaus' "In the Flat Field") have strong ties to Post-Punk. And Public Image Ltd were very essential to Post-Punk. Plus, as the comment below (or above) says, they're more Gothic than some the bands getting into the Top 10 (Nightwish, HIM, Evanescence)
Not very gothic but great music still
Maybe not goth but they're closer to it than most of the band I see on here.
I guess no one knows pure gothic rock huh?.. Cradle of filth is the greatest and nothing can take their place. They are more important than the food ya eat and the air ya breath.
Seriously, clearly no one has listened to any of their songs they are pure gold. they deserve more then a pathetic place at 60 they are the kings of metal!
After listening "Bathory Aria" I became a fan.

Excellent sound, 4 cellists that know how to create atmosphere
My absolute favorite band - has got to be no. 1
Lacrimosa is the best gothic rock band EVER. No question.
Schakal piano version is one the best gothic song ever
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
Marilyn is my favorite singer other than evanescence I think he should be higher in this list!
Should be higher on the list just saying...mayby even number 1!V 1 Comment
Each of their albums/songs have such an amazing, beautiful touch. Even their demo tape is so eerily peaceful to listen.
Easily the most underrated goth rock band of all time.
The gratest gothic metal band in the world, pioneers of the "beauty and the beast", pioneer of Gothic/Industrial metal, pioneers on female fronted, 20 years of legend. They had the most beautiful lyrics written in old english and german, two beautiful voices (Liv and Nell), the beast keyboards in metal (Lorentz Aspen) and the greatest songwritter in the world, Raymond Rohonyi!
Great vocals, the dual singers add a real depth to it. I'd say they are really underrated.
Lullacry is the best gothic band on the planet. Especially their album: crucify my heart, track: heart of darkness! GENIUS.
