    Never said they were gorgeous.

    And as musicians none of these women fit into the "goth" subgenre of music.

    I could have made a list of the most attractive people in the would, but I didn't.

    I made a thread about people that play punk/new wave music that I find attractive.

    Well... many bands of that era were prototypes for Goth.

    And FYI, goth and punk have churned out TONS of gorgeous woman, from Joan Jett (still beautiful after all these years) to Amy Lee.

    The men, however, always seem hit-or-miss. Or maybe because my tastes in woman is a stark contrast to my tastes in men.

    Goth is a subgenre of punk.

    I never said goth women werent gorgeous, I never said that they were and i never said that they were.

    And don't insult my music by trying to lump Amy Lee in there with real musicians.

    Goth is too broad a genre, expanding into industrial rock.

    Also, Abney Park's pre-Lost Horizons works are considered Goth but it included elements of world music.

    And goth chicks ARE sexy. That's my opinion.

    And I won't insult your music as long as you don't insult my taste in music... and Amy Lee, like it or not, IS a real musician, unlike Hannah Mantranny or the brats from High School Musicrap or the Blownas Brothers. And she doesn't Autotune. And she makes her own outfits. And sings like an angel.

    I am not debating this.


    I can't believe I forgot about Siouxsie and Lux and Ivy.

    I was listening to Honk Kong Garden and Dopefiend Boogie when I was writing this listen up.

    Thanks for reminding me.:biggrin1:

    Edit: Might as well put Iggy Pop in there too. and Jeff Lee Pierce from the Gun Club is a cute little chubby fella too.

    And FYI, this thread is the reason I decided to check out HorrorPops. Turns out I had one of their songs (Warped Tour '08 free mp3 deal) and got some of their other stuff.

    And Magenta and Columbia from Rocky Horror. I heard RH inspired punk rock.

    Yea, the Horror Pops are awesome.

    I wouldnt say that RH inspired punk rock in very very big way, big it definitely had something to do with it.

    I'll see if I can find the article, but the basic "punk rock look/style" was started by Richard Hell. A lot of bands(like the sex pistols) all admit they liked Hell's style so they copied it.

    Columbia and Magenta


    BTW, if you like the Horror Pops you like the Nekromantics right?
    If not check em out. The singer/guitar for the Nekromantics is Nekroman, he is married to Patricia Day and he plays guitar for The Horror Pops

    In my opinion Pete Townsend was the direct cause for good punk rock music.

    BTW, I have Billy Idol from Gen X on the list already >:p

    I might as well add Marc Bolan aswell, seeing as how that clip of Gen X was on his TV show "Marc"

    I can't believe I spaced on Marc either. He's my hero.
