Siouxsie Sioux And The Banshees
From punk to pop, the London band would influence a generation of artists by flouting convention and playing with public perception. Just don't call them "goth."
Like Linda in 'The Evil Dead,' goth is back from the 80s and influencing a whole new wave of bands to get overzealous with the eyeliner and wear black all the time. And not just because it's slimming: darkness is a way of life, you guys.
