A chain store for people who hate chain stores.
The pierce monkey at Hot Topic kept flirting with me so I got my skate-board-punk-ass out of there.

A store that sells slightly overpriced clothes but hey if you're truly original you can buy something cool from there and match it with some thrift coture to make something truly cutting edge.
i like it
i think its cool
you wanna shoot me? okay... whatever.
but hey you're labeling everyone that goes in there and that doesn't make you any better than a poser.
Opinions on hot topic.

prep: to dark and black.

goth: a reflection on the morbid nature in the artist's mind

punk: chains that cordinate and look cool with skate boards.

nerd: a way to show i can wear something bold.

poser: a way to conform with others...

look all sorts of people go in there
sure, some are losers and poser but others are the morbid dreamers (true goths) and the people who like the hair color... i mean really... just lay off... let people express themsevles.

im me if you have something to say in regards to this: truechicanry

hot topic is a clothing store. shopping there doesn't make you a poser. shopping there and thinking you are original/goth/punk does. you are only original if you buy the stuff in hot topic before it comes out ;)
Normal person: i love hot topic i think i'll go get that new <insert band> t-shirt

Poser: i need to go to hot topic and pick up some more anti societal clothes, so people will know that i am an outcast.


his life must be so full of pain, that his parents give him money to buy overpriced clothing at hot topic

A large chain-store in which sells clothing that do not appeal to the general teenage population. Recently made popular via certain pop vocalists and teenage magazines, Hot Topic has gained the lable of being a "poseur store" by a number of people.

Varying degrees of people shop there, including "preps," "gawths," or those just simply interested in buying a pair of pants because they (ghasp shock horror) happen to like them.

Also, generally expensive and over-priced for poorly-made clothing which fades (badly) in the wash, but a decent alternative for those of the younger generation who don't have a thrift store around or another clothing store which caters to those not interested in wearing clothing that make them look like a slut.

Note: Although many people who shop there truely do think they're flipping the birdie to the system, please remember there are also people who shop there because they happen to like the clothing.
1.) Hot Topic was featured in that teen magazine again. They advertised some nice bracelets.

2.) Person A: Oh, look, gawth girls talking about cutting at a Hot Topic. How... sickeningly cute.
Person B: Okay, we get in, grab the pants, pay and get out. Maybe they won't see us.

3.) Damn, the little metal star of my pants just fell off. I wonder if I should take them back to Hot Topic for a refund? I hate how low-quality these pants are, but I suppose it's better than wearing those uber-tight pants I saw them selling downtown. It's almost like wearing nothing! I wish we had a decent thrift store around here.

4.) Person 1: Someone called me a poseur again for shopping at Hot Topic. God forbid I like the pants.
Person 2: It's not your fault there are three-thousand eleven-year-olds running around with anarchy badges. Ignore them.
Person 1: Do they even know that anarchy, as a politic power, would generally crumple do blatent lack of organization? They might be lawful citizens, but there are many, many people who would take the lack of power too far and bring down society as we know it.
Person 2: Well, there is a reason they spent 30$ on a shirt you could by easily at Kmart for 10...

An overpriced store that sells clothes that make teenies think they are "gothic" or "punks". It does, however have some good band merchandise and CD's. I like what they sell, but I dont like the effect it's having on kids. These kids think anarchy means forgetting to brush your teeth before bed.
Good Stuff: Ramones, Rancid, Misfits shirts, patches and pins
Bad stuff: the 50 different styles of good charlotte shirts, the overpricedness, and the effect it's got on kid "anarchists"

A store, which sells a lot of poser stuff. But they do sell some cool band t-shirts, and CDs. I like it, but they need to get rid of the fucking poser shit. As in things for the 11 yr old girls who think they are so punk/goth.
Keep the Misfits stuff.
Burn the Good Charlotte stuff.
