The gothic sub-culture originated from England, from the Post-Punk genre. Most wear Victorian and Medieval influenced clothes. There are two main notciebale styles of goth. The first is the 'Karma' Goth, who wears the gothic clothes but does not follow it as a religion. The second answers itself really. Here are a few goth/dark wave bands: Cradle of Filth Alice in Chains Cannibal Corpse Anal C*** (not sure if that is appropriate here)
