The Birth of the Loudest Store in the Mall. It all started in 1988. A ton of teen retail accessory stores filled the malls, but there wasn't a cool music-inspired accessory store for both guys and girls. Then came Hot Topic. As 1990 rolled around, adding apparel seemed like a no-brainer. What better way than to add the ultimate music fan essential - band tees. Imagine how our customers flipped when they were able to purchase Bauhaus, The Cure, TSOL, and Depeche Mode rock t-shirts at Hot Topic. Within a year, we had about 50 different band titles, along with rock-inspired clothing lines such as Lip Service and Serious. Today we have a growing line of apparel and accessories that includes band tees, band merch, teen retail such as shorts, swimwear, capris, pants, shoes and more. As we expanded, we discovered that customers were equally drawn to the underground cartoon, cult movie, and comic book scenes. It was a unique culture fans could call their own, so we brought the world of South Park, Care Bears, Superman, SpongeBob SquarePants and tons of other pop icons into our Hot Topic stores. At Hot Topic, you'll find a passion for music in everything we do, and you'll see that our customers share that same passion. It's in our stores. It's at HQ. It's in our distribution centers. It's in our products. It's Everything About the Music. Now that you've read about our origins, we think you're ready to shop. So where do you want to start? Accessories. Stock up on jewelry, belts, cosmetics, hosiery and more. Apparel. We've got everything from band tees to skinny jeans. Gifts. Grab the coolest action figures, band merch, posters and more. Licensed Gear. We love sparkling Twilight vampires, talking skeletons and adorable aliens. Shoes. Put your best foot forward in boots, sneakers, heels and more.
