It's a store that sells commercialized "punk" and "metal" clothing. It's kinda like the emo kids: annoying.

hot topic started as a clothing and accessory store for "punk" and "goth", and was pretty cool. i shopped there, but sadly, it because so horribly over-commercialized, and emo came into play. now the only things worth seeing in there are the action figures sometimes, jewelry if you need it, and the band tees, which never go out of style. as long as they are a good band.

hot topic has become just like every other "cool" thing. it was picked up by the masses, and was no longer unique. it saddens me that this little sub-culture of teens ruins things...like punk music, and metal, and cool peircings. god i hate my fellow teenagers.

Haddon you have an interesting point of view. To me no matter how popular something gets or how much it goes from unique to common doesn't really ruin it. If you liked it before I don't see why you shouldn't like it if solely others do. Unless you only liked it because it was unique, but thats not my style. *shrugs*

Edit: Oh, and honestly I never really liked the store. One of my ex's loved it though. I agree with Haddon right now though. The only good things there are the band tees if they're a good band.

I hate stores that sell clothes with safety pins already in them. That store takes the things I enjoy and rapes it over, and over.

Hop Topic = Failure

Personally, I wouldn't shop at hot topic because I just don't like the stuff there. But it's not really a bad store, it's actually genius. Selling shit to kids who feel they have nothing....but secretly have tons of money to piss away?

It's smart...
Kinda like google..
Except alot more crying involved.

I like the little plushies.. and the body jewelry because I can get my plugs pretty cheap there... one of these days I will have to scrape some cash together though to buy a really nice pair but when they get past 00ga. they get expensive

I don't see the point to bash on a store just because a section of kids shop there. There are better things to complain about than teens shopping at a store just so they can look cool, I mean it's the same at Abercrombie and Fitch and I never hear anyone complain about that store? Just because its the social acceptance, whereas Hot Topic is social suicide.

I totally love Hot Topic. I even went there for school shopping. There's also anime stuff there, including stuff that involve Naruto, Inuyasha and Full Metal Alchemist.

What world do live in where no one complains about the over-priced clothes at Abercrombie and fitch?
Hot topic = Abercombie and Fitch for emos

You are mistaken, Hot Topic is not "social suicide" it is "social acceptance". It's super trendy and it's "cool" if you shop there. It being expanded in malls and marketed the way it is, proves this. The millions of dollars the company owners have proves this as well. Even the "preppy" teenagers shop there. So you are mistaken about it being "social sucide".
