80s Awesomeness! ~ 42 + 400 Followers!

Holy shitballs, really? 400 followers? Actually, 401 as of this post. Wow! Thank you all! I hope I live up to it! Now, onto the 80s -

Goth!!!


Yeah, that's right people. The term 'goth' is so totally 80s. Used to describe people that dressed in black and listened to "darker" bands like The Cure (which, when you listen to their music, is more aligned with emo today as opposed to goth), it could be derogatory or complimentary depending on the mouth it comes out of. But whatever it is, the term's transcended time. While goth girls looked like something closer to mainstream Madonna wannabes than the white-faced, black-lipped chicks/dudes of today, the term still meant the same thing. The look's (and the sound's) just evolved.
