Oh, Hot Topic, how I loathe you. Lurking in the seedy back alleys of suburbia, hiding in shadows of unchecked mall culture, taking underground and retro pop icons and repackaging them for the masses with inferior quality. Your clothing's stupid (you'll never convince me that pants falling off of twiglike boys are anything else), shoddy, overpriced, and just not that funny. I'd say you're useful for distributing Metropolis Records samplers, but that's about it; I don't want those kids at my club night, thinking music's cool because the found it at Hot Topic rather than developing a style of their own. Screw you.
