With the Damned releasing their debut album under the punk rock theme, the group's vocalist was dressed as a vampire, having worked previously as a grave digger, many new followers started dressing for their concerts with costumes that represented the space between hell and heaven.

The doors were often referred to as having a dark edge to their music, sometimes-violent outburst in their lyrics, setting them apart and truly starting the Goth music genre in the mid-1970's. When gothic metal ge influenced by electronic synthetizers coined the Darkwave.

As the Goth Electronic Music grew in the early 1980's the well-known band The Cure had a withdrawn feel and style to their music tapping into the darker side of the human mind. They later became one of the most recognised bands of this century with their lyrics and guitar riffs.
