a "punk" clothing store. the cds they sell are pretty good. they support alot of stuff that isn't too mainstream. they could do better though. the store is what you could call a sell-out, but if you're looking for the media punk rock clothing, here it is.

i remember going there in 2000 and it was awesome. then now, if i walk in there, 2005, you see hello kitty, carebears, and random things in there that shouldn't be there. i've heard so called-punk kids go in saying "man there are so many fucking preps in here now." well, if they were really "punk rockers" they wouldn't go shop at hot topic and spend their parent's money. poseurs.
dude that goth kid only shops at hot topic.

People who were denied to hang out with the cool kids shop here. If you're looking for a pre-worn pair of fishnet thongs, look no further.
Hot Topic should start selling guns and Pro-Suicide stickers to rid the world of asshats.

a place of pure touchure and choas they arent afraid to snap a rubber band across ur ass for buying gay music....hot topic is also known as posers'R'us..the only thing cool about hot topic is the ppl that work there who arent afriad to kick ur ass for saying good charlotte is punk..and also they carry some good-ish music..and band shirts are cool too..but as for the carebears and the matching "goth/punk" outfits fuck off and find some real clothes wannabes...

It's A Store where people shop and to be honest I'm a complete prep but i think its a bunch of bull shit that all of these people are saying that hot topic is for posers!! just because you shop at one store doesnt make you a poser......so shut the fuck up!! and dont tell me to shut up cuz i dont shop there i like my stores(AE and AF) but who gives a fuck shopping at a certain store doesnt make you a poser!!!
Hot Topic is the only store that has my simple plan shirts!!!!!!!!! damn i love simple plan!!!
