One of the first bands to take on the moniker of “gothic rock,” this English post-punk three-piece was formed in 1978. Taking their name from a German art school that had closed its doors over forty years before the band's inception, Bauhaus blazed a trail of dark, artistic music. Unfortunately, their unique blend of funk, glam, and psychedelia didn’t last for very long. In 1983, just five years after their inception, Bauhaus broke up. Even though they were short-lived, Bauhaus has had a tremendous influence on a number of artists who followed, most notably Marilyn Manson and Glenn Danzig. The band has reunited twice for tours and, after releasing their final album in 2008, have remained broken up ever since.
