look up any word, like trap:
 
50.
A store that everyone has shopped at, but will deny to their dying day.
1. "I was so _______ (insert your "rebellion statement" here) that I never shopped at Hot Topic."
2. "I used to shop at Hot Topic back when it was hardcore. But now, it's just for poseurs."
3. "Jesus said unto Peter, before the cock crows, you would have denied me three times."

Popular clothing store.
Contrary to popular belief, Hot Topic is just the same as Old Navy, Hollister, Abercrombie, and all other clothing stores, but instead with different styles of clothing.
Shopping at store makes you no more unique or different than shopping at forementioned stores.
Spending sixty dollars on a pair of pants there, is no different than spending that at any other store.
In summary, is a clothing store just like Hollister or any other store.
So quite thinking your so fucking punk/goth/etc. for shopping there, while you throw sour looks at the kids that just walked out of Abercrombie.
Nor is anyone a poseur because they shop there.
Me:Hey look, it's Hot Topic, a clothing store!
Idiot:Oh my God, let's go shop at Hot Topic, while we throw sour looks at the kids coming out of Hollister, because we are just so damn rebellious and they aren't!

a store where many kids who were raised in suburbia amerika think they can go to be different and "anti-social" and "goth" and all the other many labels. But in retro-spective the too are just another mindless clone.

I myself will not lie i have shopped there and often still go in there but that is only because i have many friends who work there.

I have been labeled goth and poser and punk blah blah blah, but honestly anymore i havent bought any clothes...i have made them all. i only bye shoes and underwear ...maybe a coat
cheerleader: Did you get that a hot topic?
me: the patch yes the rest of the shit no i made it
cheerleader: oh thats why it look so cheap.
Me: at least i didnt spend $200 on a shirt hoodie and pair of pants. You only get all that shit because you blow dady for it every friday night.

The red-and-black equivalent of Limited Too. No more, no less.
Me: Woah, look, Limited Too went all gothic!
Person: No, that's Hot Topic.

A clothing store in which one travels to in order to obtain various articles of apperal. This establishment markets their merchandise towards those who desire to appear hardcore and to be original. But by shopping at this Hot Topic, you are not really original because anyone can shop there. If by shopping there you are looking to be original you are not original because if you were original you would already be original and not trying to be. If original is not something you are already then shop there. Much love to Johnny. Hot Topic is the system.
Hey I got this shirt at Hot Topic I look H.C.!
