I was just reminded of this song by Kommunity FK because a friend sent me a completely arbitrary list of the 30 Best Goth Records of all time, and I lamented this song’s omission. In high school my tastes often veered towards the darker side: Sisters of Mercy, Southern Death Cult, Bauhaus, etc., and Kommunity FK’s “Something Inside Me Has Died” was a forgotten classic even then. Watching the video again after so long, I’m overwhelmed by how unbelievably cheesy the imagery is, not to mention the bad ’80s clothes/hair. “Goth” as a musical subgenre has never garnered much respect and justifiably so. No band would choose to be called “goth” unless it were trying to exploit a checklist of cliches. Just ask Siouxsie Sioux if she’s a goth. Or, for even more laughs, ask Robert Smith how he feels about being labeled as such. Regardless, this song stands the test of time. Still sounds great.
