Bauhaus, no contest. ok, The Cure too.

Fields of the Nephilim for me, without a shadow of a doubt. I also feel like I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like Bauhaus atm.

Bauhaus and the Cure, at the risk of sounding totally, like, OMG, mainstream :p

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, speshally the murder ballads album. So good.

That was completely unneccesary.

Also, why does everyone like Bauhaus? What should I listen to them by them?

Try their two compilation CDs 1979-1983 Volumes I & II.

My favourite 80s Goth bands:

The Sisters of Mercy
Siouxise and the Banshees

For Bauhaus, I thought Swing the Heartache, the BBC Sessions was amazing. It was unlike anything I heard back then and it still very listenable.

Cant really say as how they were "goth" but Twisted Sister and Moterhead were GREAT in MY book.

I've always been pretty partial to Skinny Puppy, but only because of a certain girl in high school...

i know they arent from the 80's but do the spice girls count as goths? listening to them makes me want to kill people

LOL. I used to work graveyard shift when I lived in an apartment years ago. My upstairs neighbors (two girls) would wake me up WAAAAAAAY too early blaring (what I want what I really really want) through the ceiling above my bedroom. I felt like killing them. If they werent so damnably cute when I went upstairs and then fed me breakfast, I might have followed through with my original intentions. :mad:

now the important question about these girls, did you do them in the butt?
