Marilyn Manson - Goth or not?

I always understood that Bauhaus was the first 'goth' band. But anyway Ill take your ver on board. I find its usually pointless to try and divine these things as opinions always differ and often radically and the info from the bands is always a bit vague.

Haha well what I actually meant was the Romantic that can also refer to romanticism, which is a movement in the arts and literature. People often use it to describe the 'seeing beauty in decay and death' element that some gothic music has in it.

Graylin

calling manson goth is like calling KISS black metal.
as in ignorant labeling based solely on appearance and a vague idea of what that genre entails.

ive heard him speak on his views on life other such stuff. he is a smart fella, got some cool views on life, is defiantly charismatic and a great perfor...
