How to Spot a Fake Goth

It's a tough question that we ask ourselves all the time. You'll be out at your favorite stomping grounds and come across someone who seems like they're trying to be Goth, but doesn't quite fit in. Your soulless instincts start to kick in as you notice that this person is not wearing black at all but a mean set of cargo shorts, Crocs, and a white button up shirt. Suddenly, you realize that this person might actually be a normie. This is a dilemma that many of us face, therefore we here at Riveting News have set up a guide that will help you find out whether or not someone is really Goth.

  • Their favorite song by The Cure is actually the Hot Potato song by The Wiggles.
  • When you read their Journal, it says, "I fucking hate Goths so much," over and over and has photos taped in it of popular pop-punk groups such as Weezer.
  • Their limited edition unrated director's cut of The Nightmare Before Christmas is actually a Tae Bo video.
  • They pronounce Sisters of Mercy as "Blisters of Cersei."
  • They spread mayonnaise all over their body to hide a really nice tan.
  • Their combat boots have a Nike swoosh on them and also aren't combat boots at all.
  • They ask you if their eyeliner looks OK, but they're wearing a paper bag over their head with a sad face drawn in sharpie.
  • Their cutting scars are clearly from anterior cruciate ligament surgery.
  • When you talk about Satan, they start crying and beat the shit out of you with a Bible.
  • When you ask what their favorite legitimate Goth site is, they say Riveting News.
When in doubt, knock them out.

Industrial Shirts on has something for everyone—even rivet heads. Turns out, there's a huge selection of Industrial-related shirts as well as EBM-related shirts. Just search "industrial music," "ebm," "electronic music," or your favorite band to see what they have. They're not lame either. There's a sick, full-print Laibach shirt I kind of want, and I'm not even that much of a Laibach fan. Father's day is coming up, and my old man is fond of the old men of industrial.

Also, check out their new Halloween collection here.

Musicians, they've got stuff for you too. Wear a MicroKorg One on your chest, and let everyone know you're a synth addict. There's plenty more synthesizer and gear designs too.

Ok, yes, we're getting paid for this post and will get a commission if you buy anything after clicking on these links or pictures, but that doesn't change the fact that some of this stuff is pretty awesome. There's no reason we both can't benefit from this.
