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 clothing store in which one travels to in order to obtain various articles of apperal. This establishment markets their merchandise towards those who desire to appear hardcore and to be original. But by shopping at this Hot Topic, you are not really original because anyone can shop there. If by shopping there you are looking to be original you are not original because if you were original you would already be original and not trying to be. If original is not something you are already then shop there. Much love to Johnny. Hot Topic is the system.
Hey I got this shirt at Hot Topic I look H.C.!

a store where people can shop at. it sells mostly clothing that is "dark" or "punk" it is a good place to buy band gear, and clothes/pins/whatever about a televison show or a movie. you can also buy hair stuff and black makeup there. and sometimes they have cool blankets and such. (i got a really fuzzy faerie blanket from there for chirstmas, i love it.)
hot topic is just another clothing store.

A store that sells shirts, pants, sweatshirts, buttons, and all the other usual clothing/accessory store things. Now known as the "goth" or "emo" store. Some people get the idea that they are "different" for shopping there.

Wear what you want. Not what you want people to see as different. If you just wear what you want because of who you are, you will be different.
It's not the fashion that defines your personality. Fashion is fairly pointless. Personality isn't. I shop at hot topic. But that's not what makes me who I am. It's probably my hatred towards animals and people that make me who I am.

Fashion should reflect personality, not vice versa. If fashion defines your personality, then you're probably shallow without realising it and materialistic. But hey, if that's who you want to be.

Just a store. Some people go there in the idea that theyre being rebellious. But they're not. Hot Topic sells a variety of band shirts, shirts with jokes, etc. They also sell funny buttons or bumber stickers. In addition they sell jewelry (not all got or punk or emo!), family guy merchandise, and anime stuff...Mostly inuyasha or fma.
Wow. This pink shirt with al on it is soo cute!

I love this sticker with Stewie on it saying delightfully white trash.

DUDE! *emo tear* i couldnt go to hot topic but i did anyways because im soo emo/skater/punk/rebel/electrikk/goth/scene and bought really huge black pants.

a description for a person who thinks he or she is very different, original and rebellious, while in fact, he or she conforms to some "rebellious" teen subculture and buys the appropriate clothing with their rich daddy's money.
"You know you're quite a hot topic
You gotta nothin' in your head
You got your ass in the back seat
We all agree you're over fed"

Just a store.
In my personal opinion and experience, a lot of kids that go there think they're badass and so PuNk RaWk/GaWthIk for just buying a simple shirt for $50 or more. Hell, it's just clothes, it won't cure AIDS or make you into a god. But overall, it's just a store.
Chick 1: Oh mah gawd! Look at those cute little pants! And oh, they're on sale so now they're $98!
Chick 2: You can get the same pants for $5 in a thrift store but whatever.

a store that sells merchandise which teenagers use to make them feel like theyre "punk" or "goth" and alternative. they think it is the anti-abercrombie, when in fact A&F and hot topic are both multimillion dollar chain stores with overpriced clothing. there is nothing alternative or punk or goth about hot topic, its just another store. so dont think that if you shop there you will become different, because it's in the same boast as A&F, only less slutty.
"i went to hot topic today! look at the clothes i got! theyre kind of a goth/punk theme! now i will pretend to be depressed while cutting myself!"

"dont be such a fucking loser, and wear some better clothes please"
