Hell fucking yeah, I have always been into the goth subculture and the music, admittedly I haven't heard a lot of these but I always support lists pushing Depeche fucking Mode, Bauhaus, The Cure, Siouxsie, Killing Joke, Joy Division, NIN, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Sisters of Mercy. Though I would have also included some Ministry, Drab Majesty, Xmal Deutschland, Peter Murphy solo, Clan of Xymox, The Church, and of course more mid 80s Depeche.

Gotta say it's nice to see a list that recognized Depeche Mode's goth influence on the album Black Celebration and it is also nice to see NIN "Terrible Lie" get some love, it is painfully overlooked alongside "Thats What I Get", my favorite NIN track.

I'm glad you guys like many of the songs in here but thank the Treble staff for creating this list. I've yet to explore a lot of the songs in this list (especially The Cure) so at the moment I'm rooting for Julee Cruise's "Falling". I could have sworn I saw Julee's Floating In The Night in Henrik's personal Top favourite albums.
