Published weekday mornings as the coffee brews
Haha. Agreed!Someone told me that Hot Topic is owned by Abercrombie. If that's true, it's hilarious.
As a smart friend of mine once said - It's not counter culture if you buy it at the mall.
Slight tangent ...Saw a sign on a kiosk at the mall once (basically an ad for the mall) that simply said, "Defining You."I just sat there looking slackjawed and the audacity and honesty of it all.
I love Hot Topic (or rather, my daughter does, and that's good enough for me). Be around a teen long enough and you're sure to hear him or her scream (in over-dramatic angst), "I want to be myself! Just like everybody else!"Hot Topic fills that very real teen-need.

@ franken blunt: Truer words have never been typed.
uuuuugh don't even get me started on how true all of this is.
@ angela - Hot Topic is gap ownedMy favorite incident about this is seeing several kids wearing the "You laugh because I'm different; I laugh because you're all the same" in the same huddle in high school
Hot Topic is its own company, FWIW. Trades as HOTT.
Hmm, didn't get this one until I read the comments. Hot Topic doesn't exist in my neck of the woods at all.But certainly clones of it do...;-)
Hey, I learned recently that Hot Topic won't sell marijuana related stuff because it's "a family store." Sex, violence, disrespect, all fine. But none of that devil's weed.
Love it! I've always thought it funny that the Hot Topic kids found their counterculture gear at chain store at the Galleria.
HAHAHA Love IT!"I wanna be different just like everybody else"
this is one of the best one's if not the best. love this on. hailarious yet true. satire at it's best. lol
A lot of my friends shop at Hot Topic... Waaaay overpriced, for a pair of $60 pants they won't wear that often.
