Hitch Hiker’s Guide to Going Galaxy Goth

Do you sometimes feel alienated like you are alone in the universe? That could be a sign you are a galaxy goth.

At this point there is so much galaxy print and space stuff that it has become a full fledged offshoot of goth. This is good because we were getting super burnt out on pastel goth and health goth.

Space Goth Music

What kind of music would a space goth listen to? The answer is dubstep because that is the language of the aliens according to several funny jokes and memes such as this one.

No one makes dubstep anymore but future, trap and synthwave music are are acceptable for space goths. Anything that sound like an alien would listen to it will be fine. If you think about it any Earth music would seem exotic and strange to an alien.

Space Goth Literature

A space goth would read interesting books about space and probably science fiction because that would be very future. Here we see a drawing of Edgar Allen Poe in his true alien body.
