The only vampires I’ve ever seen are the Goths trying to get a glimpse of Anne Rice’s house, who drink strawberry sodas and tell each other it’s blood.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
It’s funny that all these goths paint their faces with such white make-up and that is the actual colour of my skin, I am that pale!
Kelly Osbourne
You look so out of your element. (Savitar) I am out of my element. Much like you in a Seattle Goth club. (Acheron) I’m never out of my element, Atlantean. And it must be dire indeed to get you in shorties, and on a board. One day I’m actually going to get you to say ‘Rad four-mill steamer, dude! (Savitar)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Now there’s a sight you don’t see every day, huh? Two punked-out Goths throwing a Christmas party for sick children. (Doctor)

Steampunk is nothing more than what happens when Goths discover brown.

Just because the character listens to an iPod and wears black nail polish, she’s goth. That was just a misused word
Rooney Mara
Stop…stop, that’s the next generation of fans… How dare you pass judgment on those 12-year-old girls who like vampires! They need to be encouraged because in six years they’ll be 18-year-old girls who like vampires and are into all sorts of goth-permissive and whatnot. Don’t Poo-poo it. There’s a plan, and it’s working.
Kevin Smith
I would dye my hair every week. I wanted to be a really goth teenager.

Heather Brewer
I just think the fact that I was told not to be curious about the dark side, and it was such a religious-heavy upbringing made me interested in goth culture.
Diane Birch
Guy? Mister? Mr. Goth Man, would you please wake up so I can leave? I really don’t want to hang out in a closet with a dead man any longer than I have to, okay? C’mon, please, don’t make this a Weekend at Bernie’s thing! (Amanda)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
I always get the ‘goth girl’ thing because I wear black. But I don’t worship death.
Fairuza Balk
The head of a Pike, served at supper, is said to have caused the death from terror of Theodoric the Goth, who imagined the fish’s features to be those of Symmachus, a man he had just killed. But for this story, we of today would have no idea what Symmachus looked like.
Will Cuppy
Women are more open to trying on a new personality every season; they can go from goth to bombshell to librarian, whatever.
Michael Bastian
Did you see him? I know the photo was grainy, but he looks like one of those death metal goth heads, or whatever they’re called. All dressed in black with long hair I took umbrage at my mother describing my boyfriend this way. John was the Lord of the Underworld. How else was he supposed to dress?
Meg Cabot
Goth is dead, punk is dead, and rock n’ roll is dead. Trends are dead. Nothing exists anymore because the world is spinning faster than any trend.

The music that I will continue to make will certainly draw upon those experiences of being a loner, of being an emo goth kid, of being a New York City aficionado, of being a witch, a feminist, a brown radical woman.
Princess Nokia
I was a goth girl in high school. Perhaps the powdered white face and the black lipstick were not the most attractive. I felt fabulous at the time but looking back, uh, probably not the best idea.
Christina Hendricks
It’s so hard being goth. You have to have a bad time everywhere.
Clint Catalyst
Says the girl dressed up in formal Goth mourning,” Shane said. “Seriously, who buys a black lace veil? You keep that on hand for special occasions, like prom and kid’s birthdays?
Rachel Caine
Siouxsie Sioux was such an inspiration when I was a teenager because I connected with these goth college students who listened to this genre of music. She showed me that femininity didn’t necessarily have to look the way that I was familiar with. It could be more exciting and much more identifiable.
Sasha Velour
They are called ‘Emos’ now, and before that they were ‘Goths.’ They didn’t have a name for it when I was one, but I was that black-wearing teenager and yes, I wore a little eyeliner.
Mark Gatiss
This is funny because I just had a job over the summer for VH1, a project I did called Strange Frequency where I got to play a Goth rock band singer.

Bouncing in hoppy little circles like a demented Goth bunny.
Rachel Caine
Ethnically, the Germans are Teutonic… being made up of Vandals, Gepidae, and Goths, all of whom emigrated – south from Sweden in about 500 BC; why they emigrated is not exactly clear, but many scholars believe it was because they saw the way Sweden was going, i.e. neutral.
Alan Coren

Each year Citizens Against Government Waste releases the ‘Congressional Pig Book.’ Outrage over spending for shrimp on treadmills, combating Goth culture studies, bridges to nowhere, etc. ensues for about a week, and then the waste continues.
Katie Pavlich
I was a real tomboy for most of my life. Then I went through a really girlie period, then through a goth phase. I was so obsessed with my hair and makeup, and I was having so much fun as a teenager playing with my look.
Evan Rachel Wood
I go to goth clubs dressed as a frat guy so I can stand around and look terribly uncomfortable. At frat parties I do the same thing, but the other way around.
Myles Munroe
The first half of high school, I had a girlfriend, and then the second half I got to know these guys who would just get stoned and jam. I had struck the goth thing by then, but I still thought of myself as Ian Curtis or something.
Ariel Pink
I’ve noticed that girls between like 20 and 30 seem to know ‘Can’t Hardly Wait.’ I got the goth kids who know ‘Buffy.’ I got this wide spectrum of people who range from like 8 to 13 who seem to know ‘Scooby-Doo.’ Then I get the international people who seem to know ‘Austin Powers’ and ‘The Italian Job.’
Seth Green
Teenagers are very dark, I think. That’s all the goth and emo stuff. They’re experiencing a lot of stuff that adults experience, but in a much more raw way. It’s that extremity that I’m interested in, to be able to go down so far and come up so quickly.
Meg Rosoff
I went to a very mean school and was bullied like crazy. I was a bit of a goth with purple hair, and I was also part of the drama group, which was filled with actors and writers and wasn’t really accepted by the rest of the school.
Christina Hendricks
As a teenager I went all Goth, but I wasn’t mopey enough. I would pretend to be, but I’d end up making people laugh.
Melissa McCarthy
The goths are beautiful, a vast depth of subcultural, aesthetic and poetic ideas, and we would identify with that as we did back in 1979. But not the post modern distortion…the costume without the brain.
Peter Murphy
I find that people in American are often much more purist. If you’re into hip-hop, you’re totally into hip-hop – you wear the uniform, that’s all you listen to. If you’re a goth, you’re totally a goth – you’ve got, like, 4,000 piercings, black hair, you really go for it.
Kieran Hebden
Goth culture, as mired in the past as it is, even it goes through changes, so Goth when I was growing up is not what it is now. When I think of Goth culture as it is at the moment I think of mall culture.
Jhonen Vasquez
I lived with my auntie and my cousin when I was growing up, and they always wore black, and I thought it was quite chic. It wasn’t a goth or a social group sort of thing.
Romy Madley Croft
I was last in Rome in AD 540 when it was full of Goths and their heavy horses. It has changed a great deal since then.
Robert Graves
We never considered ourselves part of the goth thing.
Ian Astbury
Last night you said you wanted to know what to expect so you could better select your attire. I told you we were going to visit a vampire in a Goth-den tonight. Why, then, Ms. Lane, do you look like a perky rainbow?
Karen Marie Moning
That was the goth stage, where I decided I’d never get the girl of my dreams because of my scars. Not to mention my hairstyle. (pause) But then she slammed a door handle into my gut. And when a girl does that to a boy, it means she likes him.
Lisa McMann
I liked seventeen-year-old me, I was happy when I was seventeen. I was this troubled goth kid that wore eyeliner and make-up to school and listened to punk-rock music and I loved my friends and I started to make music – I like seventeen-year-old me.
Mark Hoppus
I’ve noticed that girls between like 20 and 30 seem to know ‘Can’t Hardly Wait.’ I got the goth kids who know ‘Buffy.’ I got this wide spectrum of people who range from like 8 to 13 who seem to know ‘Scooby-Doo.’ Then I get the international people who seem to know ‘Austin Powers’ and ‘The Italian Job.
Seth Green
Have you ever dated a Goth chick for four or five months until you realized she was just an Orthodox Jew? They have the same costumes.
Dana Gould
Bite me, Goth princess,” Shane called from the back. “Not literally or anything.” “Maybe you should say that to Michael.” “Not funny, Eve,” Michael said. Eve raised her eyebrows and held her fingers up, measuring off about an inch. “Little bit,” she said.
Rachel Caine
When I was writing ‘You Suck,’ in 2006, I constructed the diction of the book’s narrator, perky Goth girl Abby Normal, from what I read on Goth blog sites.
Christopher Moore
I felt like – like I don’t know what. Like this wasn’t real. Like I was in some Goth version of a bad sitcom. Instead of being the A/V dweeb about to ask the head cheerleader to the prom, I was the finished-second-place werewolf about to ask the vampire’s wife to shack up and procreate. Nice. – Jacob
Stephenie Meyer
I don’t waste a lot of time on profound embarrassment. I have always been somewhat the same person. I can think of maybe particular items of clothing that I think, “Oh God, I used to wear that?” But nothing serious. It’s not like for a while I became some sort of goth wannabe. I’ve always pretty much been me.
Andy Richter
I think the worst lie I ever told was, because my last name is Goth, I used to tell kids at school that I used to be related to ‘Van Gogh’ and when I turned 18, I would inherit all the fortune from the sunflower painting.
Mia Goth
You look like a Goth factory exploded all over you!” he called as she ran down the hall. “Love you, too, jackass!
