"Hey, wasn't there already a 'name your first goth band' thread?"..
Well if you are.. you'd be right that there was a thread like that, but this isn't that thread. This isn't about the first goth band you heard, this is about the one that popped your lil cherry. In other words, this is about the first goth band you heard that pulled you in and fucked you hard and had you going back for more and more of all that is gothy. I don't mean just the first goth band you heard, because for me that was the Cure in the eighties but the Cure didn't do anything for me until years later.
The first goth band to totally pull me in was Rosetta Stone..
Their song 'Come Hell Or High Water' did the trick..
And it was this line that sealed the deal..
Innocence... Doesn't become you - Doesn't even try to
I was going through something at the time that just made that line sink deep and hook in...
So there ya have it.. Rosetta Stone popped my gothy cherry..
Which band popped yours?
And please don't go on about how Evanescence, HIM, Cradle of Filth, Cannibal Corpse, or Nightwish popped yours. And if you even have to ask why.. this isn't the forum you're looking for.. You're looking for the metal forum.
Not trying to mean but there are rules here and we need rules. Rules are what seperate us from the rednecks who swing from trees and fling poo at one another in the south.
Not quite sure, really. I was a mallgoth for a long time then industrialist, when I started going out to the goth/industrial nights in Syracuse, I got into the real deal. I'm going to make a stretch and say Siouxsie and the Banshees since that was probably the first actual goth band I'd downloaded tracks from limewire back when that was relevant.
