Goth Rock / Post-Punk Band Masterpost

Siouxsie And The Banshees (Source)

Today I have for you a huge list of goth / post-punk bands I have been working on for a while.
It all started with recommending bands on Gothic Amino, so I made these ''tier levels'' of bands. Sadly I usually only have to use the beginner part of it. Goths usually know a lot of goth bands, obviously, haha. So anyway I thought I would make use of it by posting it as a blog post! That way I could just link to it every time someone asks about goth bands.
I also ended up including post-punk, which you will find further down in the post. For those who don't know, this is what goth rock came from. But sprinkled in the ''tier levels'' are different genres under the goth umbrella, so it would be easier for newcomers to become familiar with the different sounds there is in the world of goth music. There might even be some unknown bands here for more seasoned goths as well!

Tip: If you like a band, look up the members, cause most likely they will be in another band with a similar sound! Goth bands are pretty incestuous. I tried to include as many of these ''sister bands'' I could remember, but I have probably definitely forgot some bands. This is by the way a list of more old school bands, as I'm not very familiar with newer goth bands - But I'm getting there!

Now, without further ado, let's jump into the vast world of goth and post-punk music!

I found one that I had. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the list and got some new bands to discover, babybat or eldergoth!
