A store that sells alternative clothing for punks/goths/emos. Which is funny because no real punk/goths (except the emos) shop at malls. Hot Topic also carries an over-abundance of Tim Burton merchandise, which can get annoying when seen too often.
When you go to Hot Topic, ask yourself; Do you really need a Jack purse with a Sally shirt and a Corpse Bride umbrella? While your at it, Buy a Jack Sparrow Thong!

A large clothing franchise marketed as the "anti-Abercrombie" but is in fact owed by the same corporation.

This company exhibits brilliant marketing strategy by appealing to those who want the opposite of many adolescent consumers but are at a point in life in which truly original style is too difficult and dangerous to try. Thus, Hot Topic's "anti-style" style.

It is worth noting that both Abercrombie and Hot Topic, among most high-end clothing stores, import their products from third-world factories that frequently depend on sweatshop labor and the employment of young children.
Poster's note: If you are looking to make a statement regarding the clothes you wear, consider doing it in a way that is not at a child's expense.

All you people that are calling Hot Topic a "poser" store are FUCKED! There is no way a store can b a "poser" because if that store is "poser" than I guess all stores are "poser." So that means we are all "posers". Hot Topic is just a store where people go 2 spend cash, buy cds, and clothes.
Oh look.. Its Hot Topic.
Yea.. That store is pretty cool.

Clothing store that sells cool-looking but very poorly made clothing that gives a goth, geek, or otherwise non-conformist appearance.
It's too bad that that flippin' awesome 1UP shirt I bought there less than a year ago was completely destroyed by one cycle in the washing machine.

OK, there's a lot of definitions that say that hot topic is "poser". Shopping at Hot Topic doesn't make you a poser. You just like their clothes. But if you shop there and think you're original, then you are a poser. They sell merch from some bands like Ramones, the Clash and Metallica, and it's pretty much the only store in the mall that sells band merch. But they are kind of expencive.
I just got an awesome pair of Converse and a Metallica shirt at Hot Topic.
