Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, few were as enduring and popular as The Cure. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith, the band became notorious for its slow, gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance, a public image that often hid the diversity of The Cure's music.

At the outset, The Cure played jagged, edgy pop songs before slowly evolving into a more textured outfit. As one of the bands that laid the seeds for goth rock, the group created towering layers of guitars and synthesizers, but by the time goth caught on in the mid-'80s, The Cure had moved away from the genre.

By the end of the '80s, the band had crossed over into the mainstream not only in its native England, but also in the United States and in various parts of Europe. Their influence continue to be heard clearly on scores of new artists releasing records right now, The Cure will forever be regarded as one of the greatest bands of all time.
