Hot Topic is a store that you can find at any major mall in the country. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a "Gothic" store that sells things that worship the devil. It is actually a store for people who live a more metal lifestyle. They sell jeans with unique patterns that you will find nowhere else, and they sell T-Shirts for all your favorite bands, new metal bands and old ones. They also sell accesories like studded belts, wallets, body jewelry, wristbands, buttons, pins, chains etc. The customer service there is great, there are usually two people there and they are always friendly. Hot Topic also sells music Cd's by some of the most popular metal bands new and old. They offer a frequent buyer card that gets you 15% off for every time you spend $10 there 10 times. The only problem with Hot Topic is that it is almost always crowded in there due to lack of space. The stores are fairly small, and not meant for large amounts of people, but it is usually easy to get in and get out. I reccomend going to hot topic because it is a great atmosphere and it can meet your headbanging needs.
