When did goths start calling themselves goths?

When did the word appear for the first time? (Referring to the subculture). Was it already around during the 80's?

Are there any loners with no friends in the goth scene? As in those who enjoy it all by themselves?

People ask me why I am always alone and try to socialize with the other goths? Because others have BETRAYED me that's why. They did things to me that I would never do to them.

That's why I, unlike most goths, am a loner. I don't socialize with other goths, due to too many easily upset and moody people. I am not having any more shenanigans and I cannot take it anymore, due to being on the autistic spectrum. If I don't like you, I will not socialize with you.

What should I do? Why am I the only one who keeps to himself and doesn't socialize? People, even those who are in the gothic subculture, see me as the weird one. And I feel like I am the world's most different man of all time.

Bands Calling Themselves Goth That Aren’t Goth

Hello r/goth!

Long time lurker, not much of a speaker, decided to finally make a newer account and talk. I'm deaf and goth, and I have a very confusing and oddly specific issue. I love goth music (Switchblade Symphony, Clan of Xymox, The Merry Thoughts, Horror Vacui, to name a few), but sometimes I see bands name themselves goth and I don't actually know if that's true, since I can't hear. My enjoyment of music is purely physical, so my ability to understand whether or not a band is goth is limited. However, the bands that I'm drawn to as well as the community tends to be goth. I hope that makes sense, but I can elaborate more if there's questions.

So I suppose I'm wondering, how do you know a band is goth or not? Is there some sort of specific rhythm/feel that identifies them that I could tell apart?

Example: Ludovico Technique. I enjoy his music a lot and he calls himself goth, but I've seen people say that he isn't, though I'm not sure what the genre is.
