Hot topic is cool if you're looking for some alternative clothing items or cool band t-shirts. I honestly hate walking into there but it's not that bad. As a teenager, I used to love hot topic.

The best place to shop for band tees! I always shop on the men's side for more comfy fitting shirts! They also have a great selection of other merchandise like mine craft and Adventure Time stuff.

I love the the variety hot topic has. Where else can you find Disney princesses, Harley quinn, and Joan jett in one store? The clothes are really cute but are not budget friendly unfortunately. .

All kids go through the "Scene" phase! The store is great if you are into band tees, pop culture accessories and buying manic panic online. I grew out of it, but i still have my membership card.

I'm not a huge fan of Hot Topic. I worn it back in high school, but I never can find anything in there for me anymore. There entire store has changed and the clothing has lost it's quality.

Used to be a great store for band t-shirts. However, over the years the bands I am interested in have been having uglier shirts carried at hot topic compared to their online stores. Now I just go directly through their mercy stores. Hot Topic has lost its touch.

I like what the store offers a lot of the time. While it does have a lot of dark themed clothing, it also offers many cute items as well. I love that you can now get Pops from their stores.

The staff isn't always too friendly, but I guess that might come with the store? I love that they have disney clothing, which you would never assume, and they have an awesome rewards program!

Does anyone else wished that hot topic was easier to walk through? It's always so small and crowded.
