¤[Defining Gothic]¤

How do you define Goth? This must be one of the most asked questions about Goth. It is basically indefinable, because "Goth" means different things to each follower
Unlike other subcultures, Goth is not defined by necessary and sufficient characteristics, or by specific common interests or fashions or goals.

There are common tendencies, such as wearing a lot of black and listening to music from a genre called Gothic, but no sharp definitions.

Goth as a subculture began with Gothic music, and the music is still a very important part of the culture, but it is no longer a defining point.
