oh my god. you kids need to grow up.

hot topic is a punk/scene/emo apparel store that sells accessories, shoes, music and other odds and ends. the prices are not as expensive as other urban dictionary users are making them out to be. most shirts are $20 and they often have major sales marking down half the store by 25-75%. trust me, ive shopped in both hot topic and abercrombie, a shirt not in clearance is the same price or more. and kids that shop there don't necessarily think that they're being original, but thats the style they like and they cant exactly walk into hollister and get it. its not like american eagle and aeropostle wearers are being original either.
it doesnt really matter whos being original and whos not. people like what they like. stop bashing.
teen: i'm going to run down to hot topic to get some new clothes. I have a rip in my power rangers shirt.

A store with a "punky" and even a small amount of "gothy" feel to it. They actually do have some good stuff, but it is ruined by the wanna be feel the whole store gives off. Even the people working there scream wanna be.

Ironicly, the kids that say "You laugh at me because I'm different, but I laugh at you because you all the same" buy their clothes here, but fail to relaize everything they are buying is mass produced. Just because it is AE or aeropostle doesn't make it different.
Hmm..I tried AE but I still can't get laid, better try a new cliche, lets go to Hot Topic.

I'm so unique I got my shirt off of a rack with 40 others like it.

A store that sells a lot of stuff that appeals to nerds but despite that only emos shop there.
I want to buy that Pokemon shirt at Hot Topic but I am afraid that I might become emo.

A store that is known for selling band shirts, colorful pants and fits the gothic emo scene and now mainstream styles. usually consistes of workers that have mulitple tattoos and piercings, and buyers that are trying to rebel againt their preppy ass parents, people trying to fit it, and alot of the mainstream preteen and teenage culture of today. You can get stuff from bracetels, hatchet man icp gear, hello kitty, devil wears parada, slipknot and what not. used to be a fun store, till thedamn scene and prep kids got ahold of it >.<
