Hot Topic is a gothic style store. They sell black clothing, and play gothic music like Marilyn Manson and such. It is really a teen store. If you are not into the "freak" style, you probably wouldn't like this place. But alot of people do. If you have piercings, you may like it also. They have alot of different body jewlery for different piercings like tongue, navel, labret, ears, and some others. Beware parents when you enter this store, the staff may scare you a bit. They tend to be into what they sell. Pink mohawks and quarter sized peircings just dont seem to impress the older croud.
