lol "And This Day" is definitely annoying, but Hex is staying. Confusingly the last song on "Perverted by Language" is all about Hexes and contains a chorus of "it's a hexen hour."
lol I don't like Nick Cave much either, but "Tender Prey" is good, and "Junkyard" is insane.
There's definitely not gonna be a goth section, so I'll check out the Bauhaus, etc.
Might drop The Cure. They'll have other albums in Alternative Rock or wherever.
For XTC I've just got "Drums and Wires" so far in New Wave. That album is great.
The Devo debut will be in New Wave I reckon.
I'll add Midnight Oil.
Those Husker Du albums you listed are Post-Hardcore. That will be a separate category.
I've gotta do tons of listening here. I thought Throbbing Gristle were an industrial band and Art of Noise synth-pop (haven't heard either!)
