A Scene Kid is a really pathetic loser, about 13-16, who follows current trends, or the scene
, because they are insecure about their own identity and feel the need to copy others.
At the moment Scene Kids typically dress like a cross between Emo
and Nu Rave
. Both sexes wear tight black skinny jeans, brighly coloured Converse and check/studded belts. Expect them to go 'punk rawk revolution!' in a couple of years time.
Male Scene Kids wear tight band T shirts or neon T's with angular patterns. They wear wristbands showing all the gigs they've ever been to, have some kind of facial piercing and have black hair with a shock of bright colour, cut in the Emo style.
Female Scene Kids wear 80's style clothing with clashing colours and patterns, big jewelery, ridiculous amounts of neon makeup and have pretty similar hair to the guys, only longer and sometimes backcombed.
They listen to bands in the current disco/nu rave/post hardcore scene, bands that NME
go ape about, and bands with copious punctuation in their names, such as Hadouken!, Does It Offend You Yeah? and !!!
Scene Kids spend their days on social networking sites, such as MySpace
, talking to fellow Scene Kids about new bands and clothes they bought. They also like taking 'arty' photographs of themselves at mind-bending camera angles in their bathrooms.
They often retain traces of previous scenes they were into, such as liking rap music or wearing skate shoes. They think they're the 'in' crowd when they actually end up looking like twats.
Scene Kids are basically people who follow the crowd and steal from other social groups to fit in.
Scene Kid 1: Dude! Check out my vintage Vans! All the cool kids are wearing them!
Scene Kid 2: Wow! Not as awesome as my retina-buring T shirt I got from H&M!
Scene Kid 3: Hey, check out this band on MySpace! They're called Kitasuki!!*&?
Normal Kid: You guys are losers...
