You can get lost in here for hours. My buddy posted it on FB.  He said "one of the reasons I love the internet". I agree.

I remember watching it when Matt Pinhead (Pinfield) hosted the show. Had some great music on there.

They did a good job with new music and there's some stuff in there I haven't seen in years, like Camper Van Beethoven redoing The Status Quo's "Pictures Of Matchstick Men" (top 10 song for doing psychedelic drugs I'd bet).  There's really early stuff by Jane's Addiction, Soundgarden, Urge Overkill (loved those guys) and Soul Asylum.  There are a lot of gay songs in there too, like who the fuck is Peter Murphy?  That guy sucks balls, and he's on almost every week.  But it's funny how the whole music scene changed by 1993 with the emphasis on grunge and 120 sort of stayed true to it's roots in sticking to more alternative and less grunge until then.  I have to admit, I hadn't watched this show since the early '90's, but that list is a great find.

I've tried to give Sonic Youth passes over the years but they don't pass the sound test at all. Every one of the songs on 120 that I played suck. The only thing even remotely entertaining about that band is the "Bull in the Heather" video with Kat Hanna of Bikini Kill acting like an idiot, but that song sucks too.  I just don't get them.

Lol! He was the former lead singer of Bauhaus, an important band to the goth genre, as they're often referred to as the "Godfathers of Goth". He's a VERY good singer(if you like that genre), you should check out his best solo record(IMO): Deep.  It's VERY good.
Expand your taste. Also, I used to love the video for "Take the skinheads bowling" by Camper Van Beethoven.

That's beyond my taste, my friend.  Goth is not my scene, even though I like The Cure and they basically were the poster children.  I also hate industrial, specifically Ministry as I had the misfortune to be dragged to their concert in LA in 1996.  Awful. I do like Love & Rockets, Husker DU (anything with Bob Mould who's fucking awesome), Smiths, Cure and Cult, etc...

I really think you'd enjoy DEEP, as it sounds nothing at all like goth. Cuts You Up is a masterpiece IMO.
 funny you mentioned Love.and Rockets, as that was a Hybrid of Bauhaus, as 3 of the former members of Bauhaus started that band
Ministrys first record "With Sympathy" would surprise you, as it's nothing like his latter industrial stuff, it's actually quite synthy and poppish sounding. Al hates the record, but I dig it.
The rest of the bands you mentioned are wonderful too. I'm a huge Smiths/Morrissey/Cure fan.
The Cure are definitely considered to be right up there with Bauhaus as the Godfathers of Goth too.

Stingy can educate me on topics of goth. I don't know much about it.

Honestly thought stingy would be more a J Geils type.
