The Cure

The Cure

The soundtrack of your life was written by The Cure! You are a total original, and you hate to be categorized. Although you typically are seen as being dark and gloomy, you have a hidden soft side. When people really get to know you, they realize that you're far more chill than you appear. You like to think about the existential a lot, and as a big-picture thinker you can't help but be moved by the state of the world. The Cure's heart-wrenching vocals, intense lyrics, and funky bass-lines are your lullaby.

The Smiths

The Smiths

The soundtrack of your life was written by The Smiths! Half funny and half morose, you're a bit of an oddball and proud of it! You are extremely emotional and intense, always juggling between your idealism and cynicism. You enjoy a more classic look, and will always think outside the box when given an opportunity. You have to do what feels right, even if it means facing social scorn; whether that means being outwardly celibate or calling your album Meat is Murder. The Smith's passionate vocals, witty lyrics, and jangley guitars are what sing you to sleep.

Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode

The soundtrack of your life was written by Depeche Mode! Dark? Melancholy? Perhaps. But one thing people may not realize about you is that you are a real romantic. Fascinated by important issues, religion, and of course sex, you follow your heart in everything you do. You're a truly sensitive and sweet individual, beneath the veil of gloom. Depeche Mode's avant garde style, idealistic lyrics, soulful synthesizers feel like home in your world.

Siouxsie and the Banshees

Siouxsie and the Banshees

The soundtrack of your life was written by Siouxsie and the Banshees! You're experimental and so over labels. You like what you like, and won't let anyone judge you for venturing into things that are more popular, or perhaps, highly unusual. You refuse to compromise who you are for approval. Siouxsie and the Banshees' howling vocals, strange lyrics, and solid drumming leave you spellbound.

The B-52s

The B-52s

The soundtrack of your life was written by The B-52s! Wild, crazy, and lots of fun, you are the life of the party! You don't see much reason for life to be all doom and gloom; why not make love under a strobe light, go on road trips, or simply just spend some time at the beach? With a wardrobe almost as colorful as your personality, you sure know how to have a good time! The B-52's fun call-and-response, off the wall songwriting, and madcap antics are perfect for every adventure.

Erasure

Erasure

The soundtrack of your life was written by Erasure! You're a romantic with a mission; known for fighting for the underdog, Erasure is one band you wouldn't mess with no matter how "flowery" their music gets. You value equality highly, and you see the importance of idealism. Peace, harmony, and respect have gotten you this far and will continue to help you flourish! Erasure's groovy melodies, colorful stage performances, and masterful synths are something you can l'amour.
