But first, a lesson about the beginnings of the Gothic culture for you newbies out there. Beginnings? Well, the Goth cult had an official beginning, but let's be honest: This type of lifestyle has been around forever, hasn’t it? The Gothic scene we know today emerged at some point during the 70s. During these wild times, the first Gothic movement developed from Punk and its attitude towards life. The Wave and Gothic movement became a separate scene, distinguishing itself especially due to its introverted, peaceful and romantic philosophy of life. This philosophy of life is exactly what makes the entire Gothic scene so unusual and individual. Tolerance is one of the central motifs. Topics like grief, the extravagant or evil aren’t just ignored by the Gothic scene the way it is usually done during everyday life, but became free from taboos in Goth music, discussions and knowledge and are therefore a vital part of the scene. Just like Punk, the Gothic scene has it’s music as the most powerful element of expression. Bands like Joy Division, The Cure, Christian Death or Bauhaus have shaped the movement and paved the way for further sub-genres.
