THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A SCENE
A guy gets his first piercing and begins growing out his hair and listening to hip scene music, and girls begin to like him more.
Therefore, he listens to more music, grows out his hair more, and gets more piercings.
At this point he's popular and SUPERHAWT and does cool stuff like smoke and go to shows
Then, after large amounts of hip
music and piercings and whatnot, he starts becoming a little more gay
. He may also start wearing makeup for extra scene-ness. Girls and most guys become weirded out.
To counteract the gayness, he shaves his head, listens to more xHARDCORE
x music and goes straight edge
. Then he realizes that he's a douche
and nobody likes him, so he grows out his hair again, and the cycle restarts.
