Layer on the black eyeliner and cue up Siouxsie Sioux — it's World Goth Day! For those of us with a love of all things grimly fiendish, this Thursday is a day to celebrate our darker sides and pasty pallors. Initiated in 2010, May 22nd marks a holiday originating from a desire to turn what started out as a musical subculture to a global phenomenon. Check out events happening all over the world here. In today's Video Roundup, we've gone to the darkest, dankest corners of the web to bring to you an impressively varied collection of Gothic greats. So, even if you're not a Goth (or maybe one in hiding), honor World Goth Day by checking out our list. Release the bats!
