17 Emo Things You Can Still Buy At Hot Topic

It's not a phase, mom!

Ahh, Hot Topic. The store that all teens growing up in the early 2000s both loved and feared. The store that parents actively avoided, lest their innocent children got lost in its depths and emerged hours later with a tattooed sleeve and nipple piercings. With its bloody red logo, it was the most mysterious store in any shopping mall.

Today Hot Topic gives off less of a sacrifice-your-soul-to-checkered-Vans vibe. They even sell Ariana Grande merch now! I know, it's crazy, right? Fortunately their online store still stocks some of your old favorites:

  1. Tripp Pants
  2. Band t-shirts
  3. Things with skulls on them
  4. And pentagrams
  5. And heartagrams
  6. The Nightmare Before Christmas merch
  7. Patches
