A new fad

Over time the youth of each generation adopted a particular style. At one time we had the "punk" generation (with the very big spiky hair and heaps of piercings).

Now we have the "goth" generation. All around Brisbane city we have the youth dressed in black with various adornments (like the backpack with the cross). In the major meeting areas around the city you will see them everywhere.

Goth is a modern subculture that first became popular during the early 1980s within the gothic rock scene, a sub-genre of post punk.

I must be careful making fun of any generations style, my generation created the damn Bell Bottoms.

I always like the goths (the look, anyway). They do look a bit odd in the full sunlight, I would have expected they get up at 8pm and never out in the light of day...

They look a bit odd to me, but I also see them on US shows. I guess it's really the in thing right now...but I don't see so many of them yet here in Manila...
