I will read, and likely steal from all comments I find on this thread. You consent to my theft by… this thing I just made up: THINGTHATSAYSTHAT.
ROUND 1: Peter VS Rozz
Gothic Rock founding father and clothing-adverse baritone, Peter Murphy of Bauhaus dominated Death Rock deity Rozz Williams, who’s ultimately defeated game plan was as complex and challenging as his poetry.
After initiating an avant garde off, which Murphy found irresistible, Williams lured Murphy into an existential panic! But just when Williams thought his plan had worked perfectly; Murphy jumped back into the fight like a rabid animal!
Feeding off the dark chaos Williams had unwittingly released within him, Murphy went mad contorting, laughing manically, and popping out of dark shadows with heavy under-lighting. This all made Rozz very tired and when he laid in bed of lilacs and sheets in his corner, Murphy delivered two surprise kicks!
The first landed on Williams chest, only to hurt Murphy’s foot, as Williams was wearing his bullet-proof vest. The next kick, however, was in the eye. (Murphy later claimed, “It was a slip” with a banshee smile, but Willaims claims “It was deliberately! It was deliberately!”)
Either way, the assault gave Murphy time to detonate a multiple flash with no chords attached, from which his heliophobic opponent fled the ring.
It was a great fight! Stay tuned forROUND 2: Siouxsie VS Nick
Happy Birthday to Peter Murphy, who is 855 years undead today.
Boy howdy, where DO they come up with those recycled stereotypes?!
Why, making racial minorities into stupid caricatures has only been around since time immemorial! If that ain’t pushing the envelope then… someone tell Seth Macfarlane.
(I feel like this is unfair to Don Rickles?)
Once people learn the difference, only then can I die happy.
Um… wow. There’s way more than just the binary of mohawk and deathhawk. There’s a whole spectrum of hawks in between, both, and neither. Way to be so narrow minded and uphold this oppressive classification system.
Check your privilege, you fucks
and start a band influenced exclusively by groups that released two or less known recordings? It’d be easy: we’d only have to write two songs tops, and release 300 copies of a tape. We can name-check Sa-Shem, Month of Sundays, Veda, Dark Asylum, Your Funeral, Behaviour Red.
But not ADS - they’re too mainstream.
I am prepared to name-drop The Decadent, Dogma Probe, and The Laughing Mothers.
(Can you believe that line predates the internet?)
Why not start a Disco-Pop-Punk fusion band instead? Eh, kids? That would be new and shocking!

And the next time someone starts claiming that teenage girls have ruined the horror genre with romance or whatever you can be like, hey dicksmack, teenage girls and romance built your genre so sit the fuck down. (via sharpestrose)
Mary Shelley fucking invented your favourite genre motherfuckers. You owe her Kirk and Vader and every goddamned thing Joss has ever done that’s made you cream your pants. Created when she was a teenager cause, hey, that’s how she rolled. She took love and showed it as the powerful, terrifying, all-encompassing, ruthless, wrathful thing it is. (via piinboots)
And I would like to add:
