A place where kids and teenagers shop to feel ohhh "so rebellious" when in fact they are feeding money to the same system that they so called "oppose". The funny thing is that mainly white suburban kids shop there who think they are any different or better than the rest of the population. Hot Topic is a gimick per say, true DIY ethics are what punk was based on. But anyways I'm not gonna say anyone shopping there is a poser or not a poser because I don't believe in labels. Labels are just retarded and stereotypical so I avoid those terms. Just to state my position, Hot Topic is a corporate store in corporate America just to make some $$$.
Overpriced clothing. Hot Topic
Owned by a corporation. Hot Topic
Kid1:"omg i am so cool mommy let me buy this cool anarchy shirt and i dun even no what anarchy is but it looks so cool i am so rebelling against the system"
Intellectual:"The simple fact that you paid money for that shirt represents your contribution to this corporation hich in term is making them a few bucks richer. So no you're not opposing the system, you are actually supporting it."

haha you losers lets clear something up

1. Jeans do not cost $45 here, and even if they were, it's not like everyone buys jeans

2. People don't go there to be "unique" they go there because they actually like the things there, not the shirts at American Eagle that say shit like "easily distracted", and have half naked models plastering the wall

3. They have never sold sweaters...
Prep: Lyk look at that kid going into hot topic, that place is so totally over priced

"That Kid": Uh yeah...you just bought 5 shirts that make no sense at all, when I went to Hot Topic and spent the same amount of money on a hoodie and 8 shirts as well as a belt...have you ever been in hot topic before?

1)A pretty cool store, that even for the "non-gothics" is pretty fun. A place to get awesome shoelaces, pins, and funny things from Family Guy.
2) A store better than Abercrombie, and all the stores like that.
"Hey, lets go to Hot Topic in the mall, my shoelaces are too plain."

A crappy store that "individuals" buy their clothes from.
Sells poor quality clothing for really high prices. People who go there either want to "rebel" or are blind. People who go to hot topic will soon realise that how "goth" or "punk" they are won't matter when people are not shocked by the huge cloud of hype "goths and punks" have created.
Shop where you want, but please don't go their and come out and say how individual you feel.
You will be laughed at for the rest of eternity.
Who gives a shit what social group you are in when your getting a job or trying to make a living.
To get real heavy clothing come to Leeds, England and go to hellraiser or route one.

Poser "goths" (highschool or junior high usually) come to their precious store just to express their "individuality"...if all of the kids who shopped at Abercrombie came their...they would switch to Abercrombie... little known fact about Hot Topic, owned by Gap and Banana Rebublic...basicly the most trendy stores ever.
I hate MY life!!! Lets go to HOT topic and BE original!!!

a store that caters to people who wish to dress in clothing that suits their preference. usually people who are into some sort of scene or listen to different types of rock music, usually punk, hardcore, and metal.

hot topic isn't any different from any other store because it still is a store. however, there are a lot more down to earth people at hot topic that i have met than i did at abercrombie & fitch or hollister.
i wanna go get a new pair of demonias from hot topic today
