Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Being a Goth often requires a constant image check. How many points do you lose for owning a Cher album? If you don't wear black leather in the summer, does that show a lack of dedication? These are the questions and queries and posers that whip up a Goth into a frenzy of angst and alienation. Thankfully, this frenzy itself is totally Goth.

So here with your ultimate guide is New York comedian and musician Roddy Von Seldeneck with his song "Totally Goth." We'll help you follow along.

  • 1. Liking David Lee Roth is not totally Goth.
  • 2. Wearing black is totally Goth.
  • 3. Soup with too much broth is not totally Goth.

The list goes on.

Note: In an effort to not have the disease-ridden Dairy Queen counter-girl of MySpace crash Rocks Off's crappy computer anymore, links to artists will be now be brought to you by PureVolume. It's much less annoying... for now.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
