A store with goth/punk-esque attire. In most cases, a lot of the merchandise is overpriced, but I still shop there occasionally. A lot of people don't like it, because they think everyone who shops there wants to be a "rebel", goth, punk, or any other preferred label of your choice, but some people shop there because they like the clothes at Hot Topic better than clothes at other stores (i.e. Abercrombie, Abercrombie and Fitch, Banana Republic, etc.).
On a side not, people who argue over or make fun of Hot Topic and it's shoppers need to get a life or a hobby. Fast.
I just bought this The Beatles shirt at Hot Topic.
