In celebration of World Goth Day, we suggest you pull on your darkest clothes, line your lids with plenty of black, and ogle at Peter Murphy, a.k.a. the lead vocalist behind Bauhaus, one of the most loved (most hated?) Goth bands. In addition to possessing a killer stare with his eyes coated in eyeliner, the stylish Murphy's nickname became "The Godfother of Goth." Listen to his low, haunting voice as he sings "Bela Lugosi's Dead" in the video below.
