A store...Preps, goths, normal people, rednecks, etc. shop there. Going to the store does not stereotype you. Every1 on here that thinks so is just as bad as a fucking prep. I personally think hot topics prices suck balls and they've sold out over the years, going softer and softer.
Idiot #1: People who shop at hot topic are gothic.
ME: God, your fucking dumb.

Hot Topic is an American chain store that specializes in music-related fashion and merchandise. It caters to a number of youth-oriented subcultures and countercultures, such as punk, goth, club, street and lounge, as well as a number of general and 1980s retro pop culture products.
In most states, Hot topic is the best place (if not the only place) to buy a concert style band tee-shirt for under $20.

Oi, it's just a store. Not only for posers. I found a cool Ramones t-shirt there.
Person1: Hey do you like hot topic?
Person2: Ew no, they only sell emo band stuff there, and other stupid worthless crap.
Person1: You ignorant fool, since when are bands like the Ramones emo?

An extremely overpriced store in which posers shop. Get this one thing straight... to be gothic is not to wear black or shit like most of you believe.Being gothic is to be different, to laugh at life, You can prefer the darker side, but if you take it seriously you are already full of shit.No two real goths are the same, and usually arent sad people wearing a shirt that says "Ill go cut myself" but are humorous and fun to be around.
Yes, I shop at hot topic.Define shop...I bought an eyebrow barbell there, and a T-shirt at one point.Its not worth making your life based on it though.

A store that sells a few good things, and a lot of crappy things. I'll go there to buy a bracelet or a pair of shoes, maybe a band shirt. I don't think that wearing Hot Topic clothes makes you different, because, as your first grade teacher probably told you, your clothes don't make you "different". I also don't understand why some people think that wearing Hot Topic pants makes them better than everyone else.
Hot Topic kid: z0mg you suck!

Me: erm...why?

Hot Topic kid: because, your pants are from American Eagle, they're so normal and conformist!

Me: So?

Hot Topic kid: MY pants are from Hot Topic. That means I'm better 'cause I'm an individual!

Me: 0_o

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 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.
