Gothic Rock / Alt Rock / Post Punk
"British band The Cure have long been a rallying flag for misunderstood youth everywhere. In spite of numerous line-up changes, they have been going strong since with 1980's. Robert Smith, one of the original posterboys of an emerging goth subculture, has been the band's only consistent member. With songs like 'Just like Heaven' and 'Friday I'm in Love', The Cure cemented their place as goth-rock heroes - dark and poppy at the same time."
