Chapter Eighteen: Why You Should Like Dubstep

Yes, we get it: The goth scene and the dubstep crowd didn’t exactly mix well. We find that a shame because the music shares so many of the same aggressive, noisy qualities that rivetheads and EBM fans enjoy. Submitted for your consideration, then — a selection of dubstep songs that just might help you change your perspective! Enter this Chapter with an open mind, and you may find some new music to listen to.
