A store so unique that it draws opinions from a bunch of consumers who have yet to come to the realization that as far as major corps go, their thoughts don't mean a fucking thing. Also, a target of mispelled, grammar-fucked critiques.

A store overly thought at as a store for goth, punk, emo, etc... when infact its a store that is supposed to be "all about the music" And it was (and still is) a place to find clothing and other items that most other stores (A.E. gap, etc...) dont sell.
Wow. Hot topic sell all kinds of music T's. Anything from punk to screamo to even Willie Nelson and N.W.A.

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.

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.

A store located in the mall that used to be cool until about two years ago, when the ditzy preps got lost on their way to Old Navy. Some idiots that like to spread rumors say that Hot Topic is affiliated with The GAP. Of course, seeing as how there is no proof of this what-so-ever, if you confront this idea to any employees at either Hot Topic or The GAP, they will be baffled at your assumption.

Not everyone who shops at Hot Topic is a poser. Some of us just shop there to get stuff from the bands we like, such as Sublime, ICP, Deftones, etc. Or just to get Faygo 'cuz that's the only place around here the sells it.
Prep: Like, oh. My. God. My boyfriend would love this chain! My boyfriend is SUCH a tough guy, especially since he started shopping at Hot Topic! And his hair is spiked!

Me: Liberty spikes?

Prep: Like, no, silly! Like...Gelled up!

Me: Can he play the air guitar?

Prep: No, but he can play girls like no tomorrow!!!! Teehee.

A ridiculous mainstream store with obscenely high prices. Kids who shop there often think that they're being "cool" and "original". Reality is, the store exploits anything that was left original of the underground culture. So it's simply another shitty store where your 12-year-old neighbor can get her Jack Skellington beanies and her Emily Strange t-shirts.
"Hey, let's go to Hot Topic."

"Hey, let's not."
