I was in my living room thinking, “damn, they wrapped that up fast.”

Nothing by the Stranglers? Well I can fix that!

The only song I know by them is this, but I really like it.

Is MLWTKK considered Goth?

Oh well, here is some old school.

Goth darn it!

Did you wear a black shirt, black skirt, and have Bauhaus stuck in your head :wink:

FYI - thats a line from a new Blink-182 song.

I was a closest Goth, maybe? I wore a lot of black, but didn’t goto clubs. I don’t think they had those around where I grew up.

I had to drive down to Atlanta from my hometown. I was lucky to have a major metro area nearby.
