Gothic RockGoth rock is an offshoot of post-punk that existed primarily during the early to mid-'80s. It took the synthesizers and processed guitars of post-punk and used them to construct foreboding, sorrowful, and gloom-ridden opuses. Its lyrics were usually introspective and personal, but also included a taste for literary romanticism, morbidity, religious symbolism, and/or supernatural mysticism.
