In the murky waters between the closely-linked subcultures of Industrial and Goth, this subset lurks. These Goths do not consider themselves rivetheads, but are simply Goths who are strongly affiliated with and interested in Industrial music, fashion and culture - and thus the Industrial Goth is born.
Rivethead culture is often described as a subgenre of Goth; this is actually incorrect. The Industrial subculture is CLOSE to the Goth subculture but not the same thing. Rivetheads are followers of Industrial, Goths are followers of Goth; Industrial Goth is a subgenre of Goth heavily influenced by Industrial fashion and music, and probably what a lot of people are actually referring to when they decribe 'rivetheads' as a subset of Goth. I think that just about made sense...
