    • True – and teens with their movies… this looks like a complete piece of crap. Fittingly, the song is fucking awful as well. Who turns the ultimate goth anthem into a pop song?

      It must be the terrible poppy vocals that kill it for me, since the backing music isn’t that bad – same goes for most of their music. She just doesn’t have any depth to her voice.
