The Cure Essentials

After forming in 1976, The Cure bridged the gap between post-punk and New Wave and attracted a huge fanbase in the process. They applied their gothic touch to everything from jazz to funk to power pop and developed an anthemic sound that crescendoed with 1989's Disintegration and led to mainstream U.S. success with 1993's Wish while influencing bands as varied as Mogwai, My Chemical Romance and Neon Trees.
