The term, "scene," is used in several ways.

1. Another word for "subculture" that doesn't sound quite so scientific, allowing it to be used in daily conversation. Used this way it usually has an adjective modifying it: the "indy scene" or the "hardcore scene" or the "emo scene." When someone refers to a particular "scene," they're talking about everything - the people, the places, the fashion, the music, and the trends.

2. A tongue-in-cheek reference to the trends and fashions of the various scenes. Many of these subcultures were built around countercultural ideals and nonconformist attitudes; the fact that trends even exist is humorous irony, and using "scene" as an adjective originally intended to lampoon that.

3. A trend of sorts that evolved from the indy, emo, and hardcore scenes (see the first definition); basically, anything that can be sold at Hot Topic. As events like Warped Tour - and artists like Avril Lavigne - became popular, the trends and fashions of these three scenes (and a few others) were gradually amalgamized and commericalized to create the generic "scene" monkier. Someone who is "scene" generally borrows from the various subcultures and combines them together - you can tell they're part of *a* scene, but no one is quite sure *what* scene. It is important to note that this use of "scene" refers to a fashion trend - it isn't a subculture in its own right, because it has no music, venues, or attitudes of its own to live on after it loses popularity.

4. An ironic insult toward followers of the "scene" trend outlined in 3. Calling someone "scene" brings up images of Avril Lavigne, Hot Topic, Good Charlotte, and, more recently, Myspace; it implies that he or she is a fair-weather fan, conforming to be popular or to fit in. In that sense, it is related to the term poseur. It also implies being more worried about the more visible icons of a particular scene (the fashion and language, for example) than the music that the scene is founded on. Calling someone a scenester basically means the same thing.
1. Atreyu is a relative newcomer to the hardcore scene, but is developing a rabid cult fanbase.

2. Wow... a Thundercats shirt, crotch-hugging faded jeans, and a devilock... how very scene of you. Not to mention your ratty Converse shoes or your Know Your Mushrooms armband.

3. Be more scene. Shop at Hot Topic.

4. Enjoy being scene while it lasts, because Myspace isn't enough to keep it going once the next fad hits.

Someone who takes pictures of themselves looking depressed or contemplative. They are either looking away from the camera or straight into the camera. Their hair is usually covering part of their face. Dark make-up and dress are usually worn, but not always. Pictures are usually developed in gray scale or sepia tone.
Your picture is so emo that you look like a scenester.

The latest American trend, and the greates concentration of teens in denial you could ever imagine. The latest in Emo/Hardcore/Indie/Metalcore (All of that shit, you know, it's all the same) which requires the people in it's "scene" to wear tight clothing, key clips on their pants, and band shirts. Multitudes of others along the same lines wear scarves, eyeliner, girl pants (for boys), black nail polish, zip hoodies/track jackets, and vintage clothing.

A scene person will deny being scene. They will become hostile and sometimes physical. They will tell you that you don't know what a scene is, and you don't know them, or they will play naive and just continually deny being scene. These people usually like the latest bands in the Emo world.
That guy in girl pants is really scene.

ok so why do people bash so called "scene kids" i mean. just because you prefer to shop at hot topic, and you like to stand out doesn't mean shit. why arent people freaking out on all the "abercrombie whores" and "hollister sluts" ?? they ALL look the same, and they're... well... mostly ugly. come on. sperrys??? ugh... because: scene kids are not "socially acceptable" fuck that. who wants to be normal anyway? ok... theres so many definitions of scene kids. so heres a definition of the two types i mentioned at the beggining:
-they wear sperrys
-or crocs
-or some other form of ugly ass brown or tan shoes
-the ALWAYS wear flared jeans, with pre-made rips,(heaven forbid, i accidentally rip my own pants)
-they wear those retarded shirts with the fish on them, even tho none of the chicks have EVER been fishing. except maybe once with daddy
-only shops at hollister, abercrombie, or aeropostale
-bashes scene kids on myspace (tho they secretly WISH they looked HALF that good)
-drives big trucks
-drinks budweiser
-has parties at the 'dirt pit' oh so exciting
my frustration is out.

fuck ur scene.
fuck my scene.
fuck THE scene

okay, almost all of you are so WRONG. mmk, scene and emo are similar but also different. emo would be dpressed people who wear all black, skinny jeans, or black dickie type karpis and obviosly wear dark makeup. the fact that they cut, makes them wear a jacket too. SCENE is soo different. its way more rad, and i love it. im a scene girl so i can describe girls, but they have choppy hair, that they do so much to. i personaly wear bows and headbands or bobby pins. or ill leave it all down and teased. we never wear our hair up cause it looks crazy wierd. for clothes, there are so many colored skinny jeans. we wear pink and teal, blue.. black. and NO scene girls are never seen wearing all black. scene are hollister hotties (id say). we wear hollister and many layers. we look almost preppy, but it looks scene with skinny jeans, vans, teased hair, dark make up, colorfull plastic rings, piercings.. and blah blah blah. :p
scene girls: skinny jeans, bright clothes, band shirts, hollister hottie, bows, teased, vans, music lovers.

Well only one of you guys seem to really get the scene.
The scene (was) a place for creative self expression and good music. You shared ideas, bands, and new styles with your friends since you were more than likely the only kids in the school with the afinity to dress wierd (albeit very brightly).
Scene Kids are not all stupid, self-indulging, camera whores.
we used to pride our selves on being different and then everyone was scene.
Yes we do love makeup and fashion and music.

The scene used to be a good thing. We used to be the select few artsy, but somewhat not depressing, kids.
We were what we were and we were very defensive about what we liked.
But then like all things that become fads, the scene was slowly picked up by other cliques.
For instace i saw a SCENE cheerleader... Thats just plain wrong.
but naturally we are disgusted by what the whores have done to the scene.
But like all fads, the scene fad will end and people will look upon it as "remember that time when everyone had crazy colored hair and skinny jeans and bright makeup?" like people look upon the eighties.

And that is my piece.
"Ever since the whores took over the scene, i dont wanna be scene anymore."

"Wow that old shool shirt is so scene."

"I love your bright makeup, its so scene."

"That girl tries too hard to be scene"

one true scene kid to another: "The freshman 'scene' chick says she need her 'nic-fix' ... what is she like 12?"

"And thats why im not scene anymore."

the whole scene lifestyle a fuckload of rules. I'm kinda fuzzy on the guy part of it, since I'm not exactly male, and I don't wanna mis-inform anyone, so I'll stick to the girl stuff. mmk?

so scene girls........god, where to start? I guess hair, because hair is probably the most identifiable part of a good scene kid, as long as they have scene hair. a lot of younger scene kids prefer to skip the hair, or atleast downgrade it, because a lot of schools see it as a dress code violation, or their parents might not let them. but I'm getting off the point. scene hair follows a few basic principles:
1} the cut. scene hair is usually choppy, sometimes even mullet-esque, but that's not always fashion-friendly. basically there are two main scene cuts: longish and shortish. short hair is usually a little longer than chin length in the front, with bangs that run straight across, usually just below the brow. the front pieces are typically longest, and angled upward to the back. on the back of their head it's usually cut in super-choppy layers that they use to gel in different directions. the longish cut usually has heavy side bangs, and a choppy cut all around. there's really no part that's particularly longer than the other parts. it's just all messy. sometimes they'll have grown out the very bottom layer, or put in super-long extentions on the bottom. hair is always straightened. no ifs ands or buts. always.
2} the colour. there are three main colours that are good for scene hair: black, red, or my personal favourite, white blond. usually black hair will be streaked with white blond, neon, or red, blond with black, neon, or red, and red with black, white blond, or neon.
3} the stylist. typically, scene hair is either styled by friends, the scene kid themself, or a stylist that's basically one of their friends. usually, however, it's one of the first two, as most parents don't want to pay for a stylish to "ruin" their child's hair.

it may seem like scene girls would all have the same hair, but it's amazing how different they can all look. people who say they're conformists are mostly just jealous. ;D

soooo.......what next? I'm actually really sleepy right now, so here's a list of scene kid trends/characteristics for girls:

-multiple piercings
-heavy eye makeup, either black or neon
-skinny jeans
-thick headbands (skinny ones look retarded)
-SMALL hairbows (big ones, again, look retarded)
-studded belts
-plastic beads
-jelly/sex bracelets
-ice cream cones
-candy (pony bead bracelets, often traded between scenesters & their friends)
-using && instead of &
-using words like orgasmic and the sex to describe myspace pics/people
-saying bai instead of bye
-being bi, which isn't really a trend, it just happens to be prevalent amoung scenesters
-calling scene people scene kids, no matter what age or gender
-whore trains on myspace bulletins
-strobe lights
-pretending to be gangster as a joke
-taking medication for various mental disorders like depression, social anxiety, etc (again, it's not really a trend, it's just more prevalent because in scene society it's okay to not be perfect)
-taking an excess of medication
-smoking cigarettes
-smoking weed

the best thing about scene is that you're fine however you are. scene kids will find something right with you when the cheerleaders and the preppies and the norms and even the dorks turn you away. and, of course, they have the most fun of any social group. because, really, what's more fun that going to local shows every weekend and getting so wasted you don't even remember what band you saw?
did you see those scene kids back there?
that girl is so scene!
