OK, this is a dumb topic.

But for those who live in the States you might know that 'Hot Topic' is a popular store on malls across the nation that sells all kinds of rock band shirts... most of them from new bands. Rarely you can see shirt from classic rock artists like The Stones, The Beatles, or Pink Floyd.

I was quite surprised to see for the first time ever a Queen shirt being sold on 'Hot Topic'. This one was black with the classic phoenix Queen logo. What I also found quite amusing was that all the shirts were gone, and the only one left was a small size.

I got that shirt at Hot Topic! Well, kinda...

Normally, when I go to Hot Topic with my semi-punk/goth friend, I just make fun of all the clothes (because most of them are really ugly, IMO). Anyhoo, I was talking to one of the employees, complaining about how there were no Queen t-shirts. She agreed with me. Last week, when I went back, I saw ONE of the Queen t-shirts shoved in the corner shelf, and I got really excited. However, it was a large, so I decided to leave it and get it another time (they said they'd get more in). It's a good thing I waited, because my friend, who just got back from Florida, bought me the same shirt, but it actually fit me b/c it was a small.

I got that shirt from Hot Topic from my cousin for Christmas! I also got another one, too.

I hope that being that they shirts are probably selling well, then 'Hot Topic' will decide to sell other Queen shirts.

I am for once crazy for a 'News Of The World' T-Shirt. I was thinking of have it custom made though.

I envy all of you who got it. I looked in a few different stores and could find none. I will have to go there and ask them to order some.

You could order it online...

They might charge you for shipping though, but in that case it might be better to ask in the store if they can get it for you.

Cool.. I just noticed that there is one of those stores in my old hometown.. of course, me being almost 40, I think I would feel kinda outta place in that, I remember the LAST time I went into Spencers Gifts.. wow.. I had to leave because people were staring at me.. of course I later found out I had mustard on my cheek.. the odd thing is, I HATE mustard, I have NO IDEA how that got there.. hmmm, anyway.. what was I talking about, oh thats right, Back in 1985 when I went to Hawaii I remember buying a Queen t-Shirt at this one store, it was The Works shirt.. I wore that out.

Thanks, Jingles. I'll check out the store first, but the link should be helpful!

I got a shirt with the Queen II cover on it. I bought that at a shop near where i live. I also have another of which was given to me by a friend. It has the hot space front cover on it but instead of it having four coulours (red, blue, green, yellow etc...) it only has red and blue. My friends friend that originally had it got it from a 1982 concert so it's probably worth a bit now. It's in good condition. I rarely wear that one though.


Fold it up and frame it. That's what people do with football jerseys. Later on (though I doubt you would) you could sell it for a lot of money, especially with the frame.

I might do that. Not just yet though. It's a small t-shirt.


Ahh. I see. Just don't forget. ;)

Hot Topic makes me vomit, they've gotten so cheap and tacky in the past couple of years. I remember the old days when they stocked QUALITY goods and people where scared shitless when they walked by. *Sigh*
I guess I should be happy theyre selling queen merchandise but it just feels like queen is being fucked up the bum by them ¬_¬

Hey, I LIKE hot topic...

That's so funny, they must have just introduced that shirt everywhere because I just bought that T from there last week! My favorite is the back with all their names! When I wear it, people always read the back of the shirt...

I was at Hot Topic yesterday and saw it, but they didn't have my size. But we were looking at the other band shirts and one of my friends picked up a Jimi Hendrix shirt, said, "He's awesome!" and then started humming the riff from Smoke On The Water!

I hope they bring more t-shirts in the future.

I'd love to see one with the 'News Of The World' album cover.
