Just read this. actually listen to an opinion...Hot Topic. one of the best stores ever. but...I hate people who go there just to "fit in by standing out" it's a contradiction which is completely and udderly stupid. I, myself love hot topic and most of the clothes and accessories they carry. It's one of the only stores that actually carries band T-Shirts. I wear it because I want to, not becuase I want to fit in or be like everyone else. I shop at all kinds of stores, if i like it, i buy it, i don't try to be someone I'm not. Everyone should just try to be themselves, the world would be a lot less screwed up. I may sound mean, or judgemental but I don't like people who act a certain way with one group of people and a different way with different people. They're like sponges, they absorb the attitude around them when they should be able to be themselves around their "friends"

my advice: Dress how you want to dress. don't care what people think of you. be who you are, not what others want you to be.
(and i actually heard this conversation at the mall, i was like, go girl 2. rofl.)

girl 1: Did you see that girl shopping at hot topic?

girl 2: yeah, so...

girl 1: she's such a poser, she shops at american eagle and hot topic. she's just weird...

girl 2: and why can't she shop at both stores? do you even know that girl? she's really nice and down to earth. You don't know her or her style, she's herself, you should try that for once. just stop judging people for a minute and get a fricken life.

A store that everyone has shopped at, but will deny to their dying day.
1. "I was so _______ (insert your "rebellion statement" here) that I never shopped at Hot Topic."
2. "I used to shop at Hot Topic back when it was hardcore. But now, it's just for poseurs."
3. "Jesus said unto Peter, before the cock crows, you would have denied me three times."

Popular clothing store.
Contrary to popular belief, Hot Topic is just the same as Old Navy, Hollister, Abercrombie, and all other clothing stores, but instead with different styles of clothing.
Shopping at store makes you no more unique or different than shopping at forementioned stores.
Spending sixty dollars on a pair of pants there, is no different than spending that at any other store.
In summary, is a clothing store just like Hollister or any other store.
So quite thinking your so fucking punk/goth/etc. for shopping there, while you throw sour looks at the kids that just walked out of Abercrombie.
Nor is anyone a poseur because they shop there.
Me:Hey look, it's Hot Topic, a clothing store!
Idiot:Oh my God, let's go shop at Hot Topic, while we throw sour looks at the kids coming out of Hollister, because we are just so damn rebellious and they aren't!

a store where many kids who were raised in suburbia amerika think they can go to be different and "anti-social" and "goth" and all the other many labels. But in retro-spective the too are just another mindless clone.

I myself will not lie i have shopped there and often still go in there but that is only because i have many friends who work there.

I have been labeled goth and poser and punk blah blah blah, but honestly anymore i havent bought any clothes...i have made them all. i only bye shoes and underwear ...maybe a coat
cheerleader: Did you get that a hot topic?
me: the patch yes the rest of the shit no i made it
cheerleader: oh thats why it look so cheap.
Me: at least i didnt spend $200 on a shirt hoodie and pair of pants. You only get all that shit because you blow dady for it every friday night.

The red-and-black equivalent of Limited Too. No more, no less.
Me: Woah, look, Limited Too went all gothic!
Person: No, that's Hot Topic.
Me: Oops.

A store which we should have in England too because damnit I need spongebob socks...

People say a lot of stuff about 'punks' and 'posers' but for fucks sake a store is a store and anyone who buys their entire wardrobe in one place is an idiot anyway.
"I got a new shirt from Hot Topic."
"Uh.. so?"
"It's a nice shirt!"
