People, generally between the ages of 13 and 17, that think they are uber cool because they shop exclusivly at Hot Topic. Run around the mall in black jnco's, band shirts, bad make-up, and even worse homemade peircings. Truely believe that they are goth as fuck. See also- "poser"
These pricks hang outside of Hot Topic. Waiting for it to open so they can spend more of Mommy's and Daddy's money. They can be seen walking around the mall (obviously), looking down at the ground faking depression. sporting bad ICP make-up and wearing a Slipknot shirt. Laughing at Abercrombie, Cause obviously laughing and pointing at a clothing store is SOOO hardcore and rebellious. Age group for this abomination of a subculture is usually 12-15. Usually after 15 they grow up and realise how stupid they looked. But some people never grow up.
Mallgoth sarah: I HATE LIFE!! ::crying in the corner of her room::
Mother: C'mon dear, I'll give you money to spend at Hot Topic
Mallgoth sarah: I HATE YOU MOM! YOU MAKE MY LIFE A LIVING HELL!!!
Mother: But we always bought you everything you wanted. a Laptop, the pony you picked out, your stereo, you get a 100$ a week allowance..
Mallgoth sarah: AHHHH I HATE YOU!!! I'M GONNA GO HANG OUT WITH MY FRIENDS, THEY UNDERSTAND MY PAIN!
Damn kids. They usually hate corporations and the machine...or the man...so they topple the corporations, the man, and the machine by going to hot topic and BUYING...yes BUYING a $40.00 anarchy t-shirt.......I know...it makes no sense.
DAMN THESE MALL GOTHS...damn them to hell.
An individual calling themself "goth"/"gothic" that ,in actuality, is not involved in the subculture.
They listen to overhyped nu-metal/emo bands that they like for the simple fact that they believe it will make them 'cool',or more 'gothic'.
Usually between the ages of 12-17, they have a very blatant fashion sense; commonly wearing baggy, black pants with chains draped from them, spiked wristbands/collars, beanies, and especially Slipknot, HIM, or Korn tees.
Their chief source of fashion is Hot Topic (owned by Abercrombie & Fitch)
Some will don a depressed visage, never smile or speak, and others will don a moody, angry tone.
None of these 'goths' are generally 'gothic' at all. None of these people understand the origins, roots, or influences of the subculture, nor would they likely to be interested in any of its true aspects.
"You're indefinitely not involved in the gothic subculture; you would appear to be a mall goth."
"My friend only listens to HIM and Slipknot, and pretends to be depressed all the time; he's a mall goth."
One of the most digusting types of people that exist on this world. Their hair looks like it began dreading, and is dyed in various mix-matching colors.
They were eyeliner that is thincker than a racoon's black fur around their eyes. ERRRM, thats not attractive, sorry to break it to you.
Usually found around Hot Topic, they try things on, and wait for it to open every morning so they can talk about how harcore they are, and make fun of stores such as Abercrombie and Hollister California.
They associate themselves as being major fans of bands such as:
-or Insane Clown Posse (ICP)
Technically, they are a bunch of posers who come to their realization when they hit the age of 16. They look back to see how stupid they looked trying to actually look "HardCore"
Mall Goth Sarah: -Laughing- Abercrombie is go gay!!
Mall Goth Tim: I know! Lets hurry and ger to Hot Topic before it closes!
Current time, 2:00pm.
Hot Topic closes at 9:00pm
You do that Mall Goth Tim and Sarah..
Often listen to bands like "HIM", "Evanescence" or "Linkin Park".
They have never heard/liked true gothic.

Oh god, Ville Valo of HIM is like so sexy. Oh, and life sucks.
The single most annoying type of poser. %30 are poor white trash with supposed "dye jobs" that are probably the product of them coloring their hair with magic marker. They are also too poor to afford the overpriced ugly chain linked pants from Hot Topic so they usually wear goodwill jeans dyed black with some shitty band (slipknot, korn, ICP, Mandon) t shirt that is 2 sizes too big. Another %60 are spoiled suburban kids who think their lives suck even though mommy and daddy buy them everything they want. Usually sport better, but still shitty dye jobs because mommy and daddy pay for it to be done at the JC Penny salon at the mall. They buy extremely overpriced clothing from Hot Topic, but still shop at Goodwill, becuase goths are supposed to be poor. The other %10 have no specific social class, but still carry most of the previously stated characteristics.more...
All mallgoths whine about their 'shitty' lives. If anyone is mean to them about anything they automatically scream "DON'T HATE ME BECAUSE I'M GAWTHYCKCKC!!!! I'M NOT A SOUP CAN!" but will immediately turn around and make fun of a groups of girls for wearing American Eagle clothes, which makes them 'preps'. If a mallgoth is actually harassed for being 'gothic' they suddenly start crying because they are too pussy to really take the criticism.
Mallgoths will also come up with stupid meaningless nicknames for each other because they think it's cool.
These nicknames often change daily and a log must be kept to ensure ...
