I have said the same
thing! Lol. It's annoying because Hot Topic has prided themselves (or they did back then) on being a "rock" merchandise store. I still shop there a lot because if I dig, I often find some really great shirts. One of my most unique and favorite Nirvana shirts came from there & finally, one for females!
Also, I like that they have great sales sometimes. I used to get my body jewelry there until I got tired of wasting so much $ on the stuff when it often falls apart, that's just how belly button rings do. So I buy from a much cheaper place now, although I still get some of it from Hot Topic if I see something unique and cute enough.
I do love some of their lingerie and dresses as well, though, but I completely agree, I'd be jumping for joy if they would replace those damn Justin Beiber and Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga shirts with bands like 3DG or Three Doors Down, more Nirvana would be awesome, Metallica, etc. I mean, there are plenty of stores where you can find pop bands. It's hard to find rock band merchandise, so why take up space with that kind of music? But I am biased, so what can I say?
Yep. I'm with you, though. I miss the good old bands. You hardly ever see variety of Sublime anymore. They used to have a kick ass selection.
is with the damn child cartoon crap?! WTF? An entire wall is dedicated to freaking ponies and rainbows and cartoon crap. Seriously!? Bring back something a little more hardcore. We can get ponies and little cartoon shirts at Wal-Mart... or Babies R' Us! Lol.
