What is cyberpunk goth?
Is it related to raver goth?
Where did this subculture come from?
The cyberpunk goth subculture, which is also sometimes referred to simply as cyber goth, involves its own unique set of aesthetics, music, interests, and more. It is not very closely related to traditional goth or other styles of modern goth either. Instead, it stands out as its own subculture combining punk, goth, and the cyber culture all at once.
This subculture focuses on industrial and techno music, and those who consider themselves cyber goths spend a lot of time dancing in clubs that play these types of music too. Because of this, they are also commonly associated with raves, which is likely where they came from.
Although cyberpunk goths have raves as their origins, they are not specifically ravers either. Instead, they are a clash of both styles and they strive to show that goths can be colorful and raves can have dark themes at the same time.
Cyber goth is not always considered a true goth style, and some very strict goth settings may not allow this style to be included. However, for the most part, cyberpunk goth is just as welcome at a goth scene as any other type of goth, and it can be a fun way to show your inner self too.
In this article, we’ll show you ten images to help you find the right fit for your cyberpunk goth needs. With the help of these images, you should be able to find some inspiration that can guide you toward the right style for your specific brand of goth.

Did you find some good suggestions to help you get started as a cyberpunk goth? Do you feel inspired to get out there and put together the right outfit for your needs immediately? With the help of the images in the article above, you should be ready to create the ideal cyberpunk goth look for your own specific style and flavor of goth. Of course, if you’re still looking for ideas, there are plenty more to be found out there on the internet too.
But what if you’re uncertain whether or not to pursue cyberpunk goth as your main subculture style? How do you know if you’re a cyberpunk goth, or if this style is right for you? Here are a few signs to be on the lookout for:
- Dark techno is your favorite type of music. Techno is a staple of the cyberpunk goth scene, but it should have dark or morbid themes to fit in as well as possible.
- You don’t want to limit yourself only to black and red. Cyberpunk goth incorporates plenty of bright colors—but lots of black, too.
- You enjoy coming across as an edgy person. The edgier the better for cyber goths!
- You like the concept of steampunk goth but prefer a modern flair. Steampunk styles include corsets, petticoats, boots, goggles, and similar. These elements can all be found in cyber goth, but with a much more futuristic twist.
These signs aren’t the only ways you can tell if you’re a cyberpunk goth, and you don’t have to have all of them to fit into the subculture, either. However, if you exhibit some of these personality traits and features, you may find yourself fitting well into the cyberpunk goth scene.
If so, you might want to look around for a local rave or club that incorporates goth into its style. These are some of the best places to meet other likeminded cyberpunk goths who share your sense of style and personal aesthetic as well.
