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.

A store that sells a certain type of clothing. It cannot control the type of people that shop there. It's actually a pretty reliable place to get some good stuff. (in my opinion) It's not unorigional of course because it IS a popular store afterall. But is that really Hot Topics fault? I think people shouldn't insult such a thing. It's prices may be high but hey, everythings overpriced. Those bastards.
Poser #1: Hey guys, let's all go to hot topic because all the punks shop there!
Poser #2: Hey guys, let's all hate hot topic because all the posers shop there!
Normal Person #1: Hey guys, let's go to Hot Topic because i like the stuff they sell
Normal Person #2: Hey guys, let's not go to hot topic because i hate the stuff they sell.

A message board on Urban Dictionary where ass hat's like to bitch about stupid crap. Hot Topic is its own store, and everyone who bitches about it still goes there to buy shit.

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

Trend-a-Goth store that sells ugly XL shirts with annoying, overused sayings printed on them. Extremely overpriced and not even worth shoplifting from. Home to many goth and punk posers who come to buy Avril Lavigne t-shirts.
I bought this horribly oversized t-shirt for 50 bucks at Hot Topic, it says "Boy Bands Suck." I'm really making a statement!! Thank you Hot Topic!

A place for kids to shop at. They get a t-shirt saying, "I BREAK THINGS" and think they are rebelling against society and being more like Avril. When really, they are conforming to it because 10,000 other kids in America have the same shirt.

Band Mall T-Shirt: Trendy
