There are so many new subculture in our sociey. one thing, the goth subculture is a contemporary subculture found in many countries. It began in the United Kingdom during the early 1980s in the gothic rock scene, an offshoot of the post-punk genre. The goth subculture has survived much longer than others of the same era, and has continued to diversify. Its imagery and cultural proclivities indicate influences from nineteenth century Gothic literature along with horror movies and to a lesser extent the BDSM culture.

The goth subculture has associated tastes in music, aesthetics, and fashion, whether or not all individuals who share those tastes are in fact members of the goth subculture. Gothic music encompasses a number of different styles. Common to all is a tendency towards a lugubrious, mystical sound and outlook. Styles of dress within the subculture range from deathrock, punk, androgynous, Victorian, some Renaissance and Medieval style attire, or combinations of the above, most often with black attire, makeup and hair.

  1. Hiya Asumi. The idea that some kids need an alternate identity, owing to the fact that life in its raw state is too boring, plain or meaningless, is not new. I agree with you, "goth" looks are new, relatively speaking. look at this blog, for example. She has a really fun outfit going, but I have to ask, Why does she have to dress like that?. I'm not about to propose that people should dress alike. Or that all people should only dress sensibly, in monotone styles. But the extremes to which kids will go to get noticed sometimes borders the line between surprise and ridicule. It seems to me that perhaps we are such a wealthy nation that our bored kids need an outlet for their imagination, and getting married, having kids, developing their jobs and building up their communities holds no interest to them. I mean, I could see how someone with a fairly wealthy mom & dad and too much time to spare, could turn to this or other similar extreme fashions and look there for a sense of purpose. Maybe I just don't get it. But I'm with you, I can't image it being a positive thing for any kids...
