Suggestive of a dark, morbid outlook on life, but not without a sense of humor. Often associated with vampires, cemeteries, and other trappings of death and isolation. An outgrowth of the post-punk New Romantic movement that spawned such musical groups as Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure. The controversy rages about what "is" goth and what it isn't, as various members of the subculture jockey for credibility. Basically, if you have to ask someone if you're a goth, you probably aren't, and no one person is the ultimate judge of who and what is or is not goth. Except maybe Robert Smith.
Do we really need another definition of "goth"? Probably not, but here it is anyway.
Of or relating to goth and the subculture thereof. Older adherents of the subculture (it's been around since the 1970s, people) prefer to call themselves "gothic" rather than "goths". The term is reminiscent of a style of medieval architecture and intended to bring to mind images of gargoyles, stone arches and funerary monuments.
(Derogatory) A slut; a tease; a general nuisance; someone who uses sex (or the promise of it) to get what she wants without regard for other people's feelings. Combination of twit and bitch; also referring to someone who walks in a suggestive ("twitchy") manner.
That little twitch stole my best friend's husband.
