Nick Cave makes an appearance on Johnny Cash’s last album. Cash is an honorary goth, right?
“Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there’s a reason for the things that I have on.
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he’s a victim of the times.”
Yeeeeeeah. I’d say honorary Goth for sure.
Does that officially make Bob Dylan protoGoth?
I think so.
I’ve heard “Everyday is Halloween” called Goth’s We Are the World but maybe it’s more like Goth’s “I Am Woman Hear Me Roar!” … but whiney.
Ok, if people i make fun of could just stay one-demensional caricatures that would be super helpful to me.
Date a boy who wears black all the time. Date a chain-smoker. Date a boy whose boots are as sharp as knives. Date a boy who cries mascara. Date a boy who hasn’t washed his hair since 1981. Date a boy who collects locks of hair. Date a boy who sings songs about killing you. Date a boy who is now just as old as your dad. Date an ex post-punk evergreen-goth frontman. Date Nick Cave.

I think this is a photographic answer to the age old question; Nik Fiend can out-crazy Nick Cave.
Settle your bets as needed.
