%% *LyricalDissonance



* TearJerker: There's something extremely powerful and sad about Siouxsie's vocal performance in the Nocturne version of "Painted Bird". "Into The Light" is similar.
** The mournful "Rhapsody".
** The Creatures song "Say", which is about Billy MacKenzie's suicide.
** "Little Sister" is quite haunting and sad including the lyric "Little sister break the rules / Break me in two".
** "Forever" is arguably their saddest song. The music is twirling, elegant and soft, and Siouxsie's melancholic vocals make it all the more saddening: "We, we, couldnt stand together / No, never forever".
** "Love Out Me", especially since it's the last song on their last album.

* AlternativeRock



* GothRock: TropeMakers alongside Music/TheCure and Music/{{Bauhaus}}. Though, much like The Cure, they combined it with [[NeoClassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly quite a few other genres]] and were often poppier than the norm for the genre, sometimes bordering on NewWaveMusic.

Added DiffLines:

** Also "Mother", although it's more soothing at the same time.

Siouxsie and the Banshees were a [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} British]] rock band ([[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly for a given definition of "rock," anyway]]) formed in 1976 by vocalist Siouxsie Sioux (born Susan Ballion) and bassist Steven [[ShoutOut Sev]][[Music/VelvetUnderground erin]] (born Steven John Bailey). While their roots were very much in the PunkRock scene (the impromptu gig that led to the band's formation featured [[Music/SexPistols Sid Vicious]] on drums) they quickly branched out and began to employ a wide variety of instruments and musical styles. The band's core lineup was rounded out in 1979 by drummer Budgie (born Peter Edward Clarke). Temporary guitarists included Music/{{Magazine}}'s John [=McGeoch=] and Music/TheCure's Robert Smith. The band broke up in 1996.

They are regularly cited as being one of the more influential punk bands in the history of the genre, and they are considered one of the [[TropeMakers founders of]] GothRock.
