Store for want to be rebellious little children to spend their parents money on 80 dollar bondage pants.

the place where goths go and pay way to much for shirts with wierd slogans to be "unique" then go home and say that hollister co. and abercrombie are retarded becuase they realized that the people that shop there are hotter than they are.
"look at these black and red pants with way too many zippers. i got these and a black shirt from hot topic for only $110! i cant belive those people that shop at hollister co. Why would they pay less than half of this for something worth wearing?"

A store for people who are in denial about their stereotype. ( Goths) The store sells mostly black and red articles of clothings and some odd accessories, ( Chains, Chokers, and other types of goth jewelery). The store is for people who haven't found themselves yet.

A clothing store located in your nearest crappy mall. It has nothing to do with rebelling or being "original." I shop at Hot Topic because I love music. Not because I'm a "goth/emo" who's trying to rebel against socitey. The store motto is "All about the music" and I want a T-shirt with my favorite band on it, thanks. But when I go to the mall I go to Hot Topic, American Eagle, Aeropostle, and Hollister. And if that makes me a poser or whatever the crap you want to call it then hey I'll say it, "I'M A POSER!" It's a store. Just like American Eagle or Hollister or any other "preppy store." A way to waste your money on clothes that you'll only wear for two months because after three you're daddy will have to buy you a knew one becase "OMG, this shirt so old. It's so last season. I just don't think I can bare to wear it anymore!"
"Hey, let's go to Hot Topic or any other store in the mall and spend all our money on clothes we'll never wear" *skips away merrily*
