This whole trend can be blamed upon crappy goth bands, who have lame-ass names that sound like the titles of b-movie horrors. They seem to have no control over the distortion knobs on their amplifiers and as a result, have 8 layers of inaudible static on all their rhythm guitar tracks. Their vocals sound like the aliens out of Doom 3d or some other nerdy "shoot em up" computer game.
The worst visible consequence of this anti-movement however is the insistence of all those who aspire to be goths in wearing no colour apart from black. In addition, they ensure that the clothes they wear are completely shapeless. These clothes are are extremely unsympathetic to the female figure and are unappealing in general.
So I suggest that brown should be the new black! Out with black combats and in with brown velvet pants. Out with black Slipknot hoodies and in with brown fishermen's smocks. Out with black, greasy, mingin' hair and in with brown mod cuts. Out with black shades and in with brown aviators.
Hear this advice young hipsters, or the consequences could be dire!
