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.

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
ok
my frustration is out.
fuck
xXx

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.

A BREIF SCENE HISTORY:
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."

Stop defining it; it has no definition; you don't want to be scene; you don't try to; you just become it. There are various types of scene if you want me to get technical.

However almost all of you are referring to that of the obscene; and emo categories it's a very stereotypical concept. Scene girls and boys dont say "kthxbai" they usually have a very vivid vocabulary. I'd know. "Want to be scenesters" say things like omg "NAME@THEDISCO!" or "GUNGSGOBANG" and love dinosaurs, and dots. It's basically just a word made up to describe beautiful people who have good fashion sense.. mmk?

Scene kids are basically emo, except they get drunk a whole lot, smoke, and dont cut themselves

they like to be very anti-mainstream
Scene kid 1: Hey man, lets go get drunk and smoke a pack!
Scene kid 2: Sweet deal, thats so like us.
Scene kid 3: check out this sweet new album!
Both 1 and 2: Dank! I've never heard of them before and they kinda suck! Thats just what we love because no one else knows who this band is!

This is hilarious.
Look how many of you have bothered to list
what a scene kid should or does look like.
All the people writing about what scene is, are most likely the fat whale wannabes who wish they looked as good
as people like "scene" kids.
Or wish that they could fit in skinnies but their rolls of fat get in the way, so they decide to take the piss instead.
"Scene kids" don't like ugly fat mank people.
Whats wrong with that?
Damn right they should.
Whats wrong with hanging around with pretty people
im sorry but i wouldnt want to hang around with someone that looked like a monkey on LSD.
I appreciate people who take pride in their appearance.
Get over yourselfs you fat c***s.
Jealousy gets you nowhere.
Tbh, punks, emos, indie kids, metal heads, the hxc kids, geeks all are clones of each other.
NO ONES ORIGINAL. ORIGINAL DOES NOT EXIST.
We all go to the same shops and buy the same things.
And what?
Die.
Fat emo whale wannabe 1: "OMGZ LOOK AT DAT SCENE KID LYK WHO DOES HE FINK HE IZ ?!1 WIV HIS SKINNYNESS.."
Fat emo whale wannabe 2: "INNIT..IM TOO KOOL LYK TO WEAR SKINNIES AND LOOK ALL COOL AND SHIT."
Scene kid: "Yeah. 'cause your a fat whale tbh mate"
