Pretty much the worst insult any punk/hardxcore/goth kid can throw at you. Basically you're a spoiled, rich little poser who thinks they're hot shit because they buy pre-ripped, pre-faded $60 jeans to look cool. Hot Topic is the scourge of the punk/grunge scene.
"Dude, check out that hot topic punk, what a fucking poser"
