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.

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!

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!!!

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?

A store that is somewhat popular and turns cool things into "fads." Ruins cool animes, movies, and tv shows such as Naruto, Zelda, Full Metal Alchemist, Nightmare Before Christmas, Invader Zim, ect. Basically it just turns everything you like into a fad where everyone thinks its the coolest thing ever and half of them dont know anything about it =)
Maz: Oh, you like invader zim?
Girl with IZ tote bag: oh, yea, hes my favorite character
Maz: Remember that episode where he shrinks and is eaten by Dib?
Girl: Who was dib again?
Maz: ...

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
