Goth culture hasn't ever made much sense to me (please don't cast a spell on me). Ha! It is unique though, and that is always a good thing.
I don't know much about Steampunk, but I did once read a Steampunk book about surviving the Zombie Apocalypse that was actually very well done. Not only with awesome graphics, but it actually had some really good information. Based upon that, I'd have to go with the Steampunks, but I could very easily coexist with either.
