A Dictionary of Goth Terms, Words and Sayings



Our follower Ashlee, writer of blog "A Mortal Doth Approach" which I suggest you follow, made a list of goth terms, words and saying which I found very interesting and funny too. I immediately thought about sharing with you, of course with Ashlee's permission :)


Baby Bat: A new or young Goth, and sometimes a Mall Goth.

Bleepy-Bleep: The sound that a Cyber Goth's music makes.

Daystar: A fun thing to call the sun.

Doom Cookie: See gloom cookie.

ElderGoth: Someone who's been around for a while.

Fat Bob: An unfortunate nickname of Robert Smiths.

GAF: Goth as fuck.

Gawfick, Gawfikk, Goffik, etc.: Fun, childish, humourous ways to write 'Goth'. Usually used sarcastically, to imitate Baby Bats/Mall Goths.

Gawsome: The Gothy-Goth way to say 'awesome'. From Goth Lyfe.

Gloom Cookie: A Mopey Goth, or just someone who's very into the doom 'n gloom aspect.

Goth Blocked: When a Goth or two or several prevent you from doing something, such as using the restroom or committing suicide.

Goth Card: An imaginary way of measuring Goth-ness. You get your card stamped for doing something like visiting Transylvania, and lose it by, say... wearing a Marilyn Manson shirt.

Goth in a Box: When you go buy a bunch of gawfik clothes from, say, Hot Topic, you have bought yourself a Goth in a Box kit.

Goth Lyfe: A show on YouTube, about these "goths". Very entertaining, and has some fun new vocabulary.

Goth on a Stick: A Goth in trouble. From Goth Lyfe.

Goth Points: An imaginary way to measure your Goth-ness. You gain points for doing something Uber-Gothy like reading Poe by candlelight while drinking wine and lose points for doing something decidedly un-Goth, like wearing a pink shirt.

Gothy-Goth: Very Goth.

Insta-Goth Kit: Also known as a Goth in a Box kit.

Mad Bob: Robert Smith of the Cure.

Mall Goth: One who listens to metal music, likes to shock, the source of their clothes is quite easy to discern (Hot Topic), and is typically seen in Tripp pants. Almost always a teen.

MopeyGoth: The opposite of a Perky Goth. They tend to be like gloom cookies, but not to a comical degree.

Mundane: A non-Goth; someone who is hard to find in a crowd of the general public.

Oontz-Oontz: The sound that Industrial, etc., music makes.

PerkyGoth: The opposite of a Mopey Goth. Just as annoying, but in a sugary, bright happy sunshine way. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Normal/Normie: See mundane.

Not-A-Goth: Someone who denies their obvious Goth-ness.

Oh my Goth!: The Gothy-Goth way of saying "Oh my God!"

Sexy Death Chicks, Sexy Deth Chix, etc: When a tourist goes to the club for the purpose of hooking up, they are said to be there for 'sexy death chicks'.

Spot the Crow: Looking for people with Crow makeup somewhere overrun with Mall Goths, like a Marilyn Manson concert.

Yah: The Gawfikk way to say "yeah". Taken from Goth Lyfe.
