Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Gothic rock (also referred to as goth rock or simply goth) is a style of rock music that came from post-punk in the late 1970s. The first post-punk bands which shifted towards dark music with gothic overtones include Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, Bauhaus and the Cure.

The genre itself was defined as different from post-punk due to its darker music and romantic lyrics.
