A store, which sells alot of crap but sometimes some good CDs.
It's a biased company which promotes anarchy and punk rock and some mindless kiddies do actually buy into it.
If you are true punk rock,you'll probably hate the store but might be tempted by the old Black Flag records.
Hot Topic isn't punk rock: DIY is punk rock,living for yourself is punk rock,Minor Threat were punk rock.
Hot Topic is a corporate vulture who breeds off stupid 13 year olds who couldn't tell Jello Biafra from Johhny Rotten.
But sometimes they do have some sweet tees..so it's not all bad.
However, capatalism and punk rock should never,ever have come together...but they have,get over it.
AvrilLavigneFan: OMG,look at this kewl Anarchy badge. Woohoo,I think I'll wear it to sunday school!
PunkyGuy:Urghh....Hot Topic is so mass market and shitty.
Me: Wow...they have the whole Dischord back catolouge in here"
a poser store, nonetheless. It attempts to sell the "punk look" which is stupid, mainly because there is no "punk look" and the "punk look" they try to sell is the bastardized punk look from bands from the sex pistols and onward. If you shop there and give them the sales, then you are giving in to the fucks and are a poser.
poser: "Im being myself by shopping here"
me: "no you arent you're giving into corporate america and even if youre buying bands that are good you're still a poser for giving into a place that gives a wrong idea of what punk is."
poser: "come on, hot topic is just a store"
me: "Hitler was just a person, you know"
The Anti-Abercrombie, one of the best places to shop, a great place to learn new things, and the best fucking place in the world.
"Most of what I have learned, has come from Hot Topic,"
"Man, get a life,"
"Why don't you, asshole?"
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 asshat
only good for band clothing (just because you can't make band clothing, and because you can't find it at thrift stores ANDDD because it's hard to order off the internet).
"hot topic, it's where the poseurs go"
when i actually go to the mall, i laugh at the people in hot topic.
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!!!
Hot Topic is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol HOTT.
fuck the coporate world but be a day trader and buy some stock in mall stores
Oh dude i made a huge killing in the market off of little kids trying to dress to fit in by wearing clothes saying they dont want to fit in
