look up any word, like bae:
The place for rebellious teens who think they're going against the popular trend by buying dirtbaggish clothes, yet are unknowingly giving their money to the same company that runs such preppy places as Abercrombie & Fitch against which they are supposedly rebelling. How's that for being duped, you wannabe hippie scumbags?
I'm such a rebel that I'm gonna go buy all my shitty clothes at Hot Topic, just like everyone el...wait a minute, am I rebelling or am I being f***ed with?!

a store where you buy wwhat if you are a prep, punk, goth, nerd, emo, metal-head, loser, whatever! if you like what they sell, you buy it! how can you saying you shop at hot topic mean you're a fuckin poser? "oh, yeah. hot topic! they have some awesome wrist bands and band tees." "you fucking poser!" <--- thats what you people sound like. you know, judgeing people by where they shop or something. god! get lives! if you're calling someone a poser cuz they shop at certain place, then you're the poser.

A store that sells a certain type of clothing. It cannot control the type of people that shop there. It's actually a pretty reliable place to get some good stuff. (in my opinion) It's not unorigional of course because it IS a popular store afterall. But is that really Hot Topics fault? I think people shouldn't insult such a thing. It's prices may be high but hey, everythings overpriced. Those bastards.
Poser #1: Hey guys, let's all go to hot topic because all the punks shop there!
Poser #2: Hey guys, let's all hate hot topic because all the posers shop there!
Normal Person #1: Hey guys, let's go to Hot Topic because i like the stuff they sell
Normal Person #2: Hey guys, let's not go to hot topic because i hate the stuff they sell.

Trend-a-Goth store that sells ugly XL shirts with annoying, overused sayings printed on them. Extremely overpriced and not even worth shoplifting from. Home to many goth and punk posers who come to buy Avril Lavigne t-shirts.
I bought this horribly oversized t-shirt for 50 bucks at Hot Topic, it says "Boy Bands Suck." I'm really making a statement!! Thank you Hot Topic!

A store for suburban pseudo-anti-capitalists to buy Anarchy and Good Charlotte shirts. A place where subcultures are marketed and confused children filled with fake angst come to by chain wallets and complex looking pants. A store that sells horrible music with the exceptions of an occasion indie, ebm, or prog. metal sampler.
That asshole had more Blink 182 albums than a Hot Topic store.

A store that in its heyday ('90s-'10s) had mass appeal to faggoths, "edgy" skater kids, pop punkers and other strumous tenderlings. Common items sold there in this period included ridiculous kinky parachute pants, useless Happy Bunny accessories, CDs by Korn, HIM, Avril Lavigne and shirts displaying unfunny "ironic" slogans and overplayed pop culture references. With the decline of mallgoth fad the store renovated its image to appeal to "scene" bandwagon jumpers, replacing dominatrix pants with ball-splitting skinny jeans, nu metal CDs with screechy metalcore and endless HIM paraphernalia with neon-gore t-shirts of "scene" bands like Bring Me the Horizon and Blood on the Dance Floor. With its continuing declining sales, Hot Topic has also tried to appeal to a more "preppy" crowd by peddling worthless Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj merch. The store's bankruptcy is becoming increasingly imminent, with the "scene" trend going out of style, replaced by swaggotry, a fad already catered to by Zumiez that Hot Topic could never pull off due to its "goffik" roots. The other prominent youth trend of the '10s, hipsterdom, is one Hot Topic could never take advantage of as no hipster would ever shop at such a "mnstrm" outlet (they prefer American Eagle). And old Hot Topic shoppers are butthurt they no longer have a place to pick up edgy BDSM getups, heartagram dildos and Happy Bunny thongs. Looks like an appropriately dark future for Hot Topic...
faggoth: I just spent $85 on a pair of Tripp parachute pants at hot topic because I'm liek sooo edgy and nonconformist like that
real goth: fuck off I'm trying to read Paradise Lost and your faggotry is drowning out my Nick Cave -_-
