look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
A store catering to those who are partial to alternative fashion. Everyone has been at one time and 'normal' people are usually there more often than the alternatively-inclined ones.

A place where no one should be judged. I've read some really jerky stuff from really lame-ass people about how much people who shop there are freaks and posers. Hot Topic is a store where ANYONE can go. Whether you like Hollister or despise it, you can still go to Hot Topic. It's not like preppy kids are banned from the frigging store!!!! However, I feel 10 times more welcome in Hot Topic becuase no one there JUDGES me, unlike Hollister where I walk in and there is some skinny blonde bitch at the register who thinks she's all that giving me a nasty look like "Ew. who let that freak in here?" Thats the main reason I don't go in there. Becuase those asshole employees give me dirty looks. I know I don't belong in Hollister. People like me go to Hot Topic. If you don't lke Hot Topic, then walk past it in the mall and SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY!!!!
kid #1: You know, I don't think we belong in Hollister. That blonde bitch at the cash register is giving me a dirty look.

kid #2: Yeah. Let's get the hell outa here and go to Hot Topic. We won't get that nasty look in there.

The most badass clothing store in the history of the world. Hot Topic sells darker and more non traditional clothing and accesories than some other stores. Some of the prices may be over the top, but if you look you can find things for less money that are totally badass. XD
Friend: Hey, where did you get that awsome studded bracelt?
Me: Where do you think?
Friend: Hot Topic?
Me: Oh yes!

a store in which people shop. there is nothing wrong with the people that shop there or the people who don't shop there. People can buy from there if they want to, or people cannot. it is a store where some people like to get clothes. end of story.
"let's go to Hot Topic."

"That's alright, you can go ahead and go in there if you want to."

"Ok. See you later! We'll meet up at the Foodcourt after I'm done."
