As we all know the 'emo' scene is still very much out there and growing, but do you think the goth scene is declining?

Vicki mentioned and I agree that you don't see as many goths about anymore.

Thats very true and now you have said it, I cant remember seeing a goth for a long time :S Its not good, I like goths, again it was kind of because of a goth that I started liking rock.

I still see a lot of goths out there. Probably because the goths actually outnumber the emos here, so I have to hang out with a lot of them.
I'm more worried about the emo culture declining. I mean, it's growing in some places (Mexico seems to be entranced by emo at the moment), but the flow of emo bands, famous emo people, emo icons. They all seem to be slowing lately. It seems like scene is taking over where emo left off, to me at least.

A goth introduced me to the power of rock too ^^ (I listened Hip-Hop and R&B before that o_O).
But yeah... I don't see any goths anymore.
A lot of goths I knew from school changed their appearance. :/
I don't know about the rest of the planet, but here in Holland everyone wants to dress like their favorite rapper -_-"

Partition* English student. xD

Anyways, where I live we have The Green, which is basically a square of land that gets overrun with goths/similar every weekend. It's amazinggg. Not as good as it used to be, but what is nowadays? ;D

No shortage of moody, unwashed black-wearing teens in Newcastle, nope.

@Alexander-ANTIhero:

Haha. You hang out at The Green? Maybe that's how both the Newcastle members here haven't really noticed a shortage of goths. xD
I must have seen you sometime.. I'll look out for you, although it'd be impossible to miss that awesome hair. xD

Naw, I'm not at the Green very much at all really, my friends and I tend to go to Leazes Park a lot on weekends. I'll keep an eye out for you on my weekend wanderings, though. :x

Well www.soEmo.co.uk is all for the goth culture. I'm sure a lot of people from the goth scene hate those into the emo scene with a passion though..

Yeah, yeah rub it in you two! :P
I'm always hearing about this 'The Green' - I know loads up in Newcastle you see, but that's beside the point. Grr! Why couldn't they have something like that down here... There really needs to be more 'alternative gatherings' in more areas. I mean frequent ones where people just turn up and mix things in with other cultures.
Anyway, back on topic now - I see what everyone means. I see the occasional Goth walking around now and then but not many. Everyone is either Scene or Emo these days. That excludes the WEmos, but I'll throw them in with Scene I think :D

Yea I know. I'd be interested if anyone can find any other discussions or facts about the goth culture declining.
