It’s time to learn, friends! If you don’t know what a cybergoth is, Evan Wells of Free Energy has taken it upon himself to shed some light.
According to the interwebs, a cybergoth is a person who listens to electronic music known as noise, or electronic body music. They have an affinity for neon and clashing colors, phat pantz, gas masks and goggles. They often have colorful hair, and even have their own form of industrial dance.
Fortunately for you, Wells has compiled a short video using YouTube footage to show us what being a cybergoth is all about, set to the tune of “Hold You Close” by Free Energy (a tune that these dancers are definitely not listening to).
Watch the offbeat video above to see for yourself, and let’s all cross our fingers for a cybergoth version of “Harlem Shake” to emerge in the near future.
We have to admit we were having trouble recollecting what made 2009 memorable, but after sifting through hundreds of nominations we pulled the best for the final reader’s poll!
A lot of people asked us why we’re polling and the answer is twofold. First, it allows us the opportunity to know what you, the reader, is into and thus better serve you in the future. Secondly, it’s a good way for us to check out the artists you’ve suggested that we’ve never heard of!
The poll will remain open until January 1, 2010 and the winners will be announced and awarded Golden Mustaches on January 6, 2009!
