Someone in touch with music/fashion/style/etc that exceeds the norm of any particular person at one point in time. Due to overuse of the internet and myspace at large, the idea of being "scene" has become synonomous with being "emo" or "hXc." Keep in mind, people who catagorize themselves under one of these are obviously not scene, because they are not creative enough to exemplify themselves from the social constructs of the stereotype they tried so hard to not develope by being "scene" in the first place. Those who abuse some so called "scene" lingo are not scene, because as any TRUE scene kid knows, scene lingo itself cannot exist or be catagorized itself...the lingo is so incredibly ahead of the curve that truly only the speaker alone is clear on the meaning and its relation to "the scene."
In more recent attempts to define the "scene," many have begun to dabble into the fashion of "the scene." It's a common misconception that scene kids wear thousands of bracelets, have choppy black haircuts, abuse eye make-up, and wear Converse shoes. Anyone scene enough to know understands completely that these things are merely a fad perpetuated by people attempting to force their way into the scene lifestyle, and thus, do not do it. The true scenester wears shoes you've never seen before, possibly something they purchased out of a store while vacationing in the UK or Italy with their family, which is probably accompanied with an ensemble unlike those seen on the pages of myspace, and has a haircut unlike anyone elses.
Also, keep in mind he true scenester is not vegan or meat eater, does not stand for causes, and does not attempt to create crews or running gangs of "scene" friends, because as any scenester can tell you, no one cares what you had for lunch, it's just food; civil liberties are something 15 year olds dont need to be worried about, and anyone who gets in fights over "the scene" isn't a scenester at all. Fighting is for posers. Duh.
And for future reference, bitchy little girls who say/refer to/like cunt/robots/dinosaurs have absolutely nothing to do with being scene in any way, shape, or form. They're just bored because their parents realized how much of a waste of time they were, so they've resorted to Myspace to further perpetuate their own lack of sceneness and search out those who will give them the attention they need to survive.
"MURdUrXXcoRE Lol R@wkZ! BANG U CUNT ROBOTZZZ iM So SCEnE ARGG!"
Man, those argyle kicks are pretty ridiculous. That's pretty scene.
Damn, the scene is being overrun with pissy little kids angry about who is smoking and eating hamburgers. They need to go wash off their faces and give their parents more hugs.
Scene oriented person: Man, the scene in Seattle is fuckin' sorted!
Friend: What? sorted? I don't get it.
typical "scene" girl:
-has a myspace with pictures of her from crazy angles with a TUFF face on because shes so hardxcore
-goes to local shows all the time
-belongs to a livejournal community called "cuntxcore" or "gungunbangbang" or "murderscene". because anything involving guns, or bang, or murder, or glamour, electric, shock, lust, or cunt, is cool in her book
-often says things like "SUP NIGZ" or "KTHXBAI" or "I HATE YOU KDIE" or "IM COOLER THAN YOU K" or "SUP IM RAD" on their myspace profile
-loves dinosaurs and robots and little girl bows and headbands because its just the way things are in the scene. dont ask them why all of them happen to find all of these things suddenly attractive, because they dont know themselves, its just what TOTALLY SCENExCORE people do.
usually theyre just obnoxious bitches who put on this "scener than thou" attitude and hate everyone else, kthxbai lol.
i am so scene, with my dinosaur shirt and my polka dot headband and my short choppy black hair and my cigarettes and my obnoxious attitude <3 kiss my ass kthxbai see you at the hardcore show tomorrow.
Okay kids. Enough trash talk. Let's have a neutral definition, because it's a bit childish to use on online dictionary to attack people. PLEASE.more...
The word "scene" coves a large spectrum throughout recent history, but its most modern definition is used to describe certian subcultures and movements. The most notoriously famous and targeted is the alternative music scene, or more specifically, branches of the alternative music scene such as hardcore, indie, fashoionxcore, etc. A breed of scenesters (people on the scene) has begun to come to the forefront. These scenesters are usually very music-savvy and loyal to a few specific genres (typically hardcore, metal, indie, retro, 80's new wave, classic rock, etc. to name a few), of which they dress to exemplify. It is hard to pin down a style for a scene male or female, considering the trends amongst them vary from coast to coast, and certian fads come in and out within their ranks. Typically, though, many scene kids will have facial piercings, tattoos, and longer hair. It is not unusual to see teased hair with long bangs on males, or short fauxhawks (a mohawk without the sides shaved, a fashion-friendly version) on females. It is almost a throwback to the revolution of Britian's glam era, very androgynous and fresh. Scenesters take a lot of pride in their overall image, and often they appreciate shock value. Oftentimes they are thrifty, employing their abilities as bargian-hunters and do-it-yourself gurus to do something uniqu...
Evidently on urbandictionary.com, being "scene" means you are a self-indulgent douche bag you uploads eleventy-billion pictures of yourself looking "scene". Congrat-u-fucking-lations. You can use a camera.
I'm starting to hate this website.
How to be Scene:more...
First and foremost, your AIM/MSN screen name should be some rad song title and/or lyric. Remember, the more x's you have in it, the more scene you are.
Next, go buy yourself some girl's jeans. Face it, the tighter your jeans are, the more scene you will be, and the more the hardcore kids will hate you for it. Try on a pair of jeans and find that you're a perfect woman's 2? Buy a woman's 0 and suck it in.
After you buy your jeans, go straight to Hot Topic and buy every single band shirt they have. Even if you've never listened to the band, or worse, never head of them either. If people ask you about them, just say you like the "old stuff" and no one will ever know that you actually hate Norma Jean. Never buy anything larger than a Youth Medium. Ever.
Dont forget to pick up a white leather belt on your way out!
So, now you're dressed pretty scene, but how's your hair? Is it dyed black? Maybe with some bleach-blonde streaks? Do your bangs cover one of your eyes? If you answered no to any of these, shut up, grab a pair of scissors, and chop away. Never go and get your hair done, ALWAYS do it yourself.
Good job. Now your hair is the sex. But, your look won't get you anywhere if you dont know how to dance. And by dance, I mean beat the crap out of people. First of all, you need to make sure you claim your space in the pit. As the band starts, push everyone back and scream something obscene. Then you need to start to pace the pit just so every...
The term "Scene" usually deals with Hardcore/Fashioncore kids. Guys and Girls who are usually (almost ALWAYS) Egotistic, Self-Centered, Narcissistic. Loves taking pictures of themselves. The pictures usually consist of the scene he/she throwing a peace sign and making a sassy facial expression. The scene he/she with big glasses. The scene he/she with their hand almost covering their mouth and the eyes to the side as if they were saying "uh oh". Finally, the scene he/she with his or her crew. Many pictures are photoshopped to make them look as "Sex" as can be. They spend hours on their myspace making it look as trendy as possible. Talk to people they will never meet for hours on end. A simple scene kid to scene kid conversation is shown below. These kids are cocky. They will tell you they think they're ugly and show you the 1,000 pictures proving it. They are better then you according to them. They love to "bring the hang out" with all of their scene friends. Many will call themselves straight edge yet share nude pictures and drink because "they are sad". Scene kids make fun of others who aren't like them. Many scene kids think they are non-conformist, although you take a look through myspace and you'll see a million others just like them. They quote movie lines over and over showing the lack of originality they actually have. They LOVE using slang and talking like a "thug". Scene kids also love to write notes to others and take pictures of themselves wi...more...

"Scene" is a culture made mostly of teenagers and is relatable to emo. It is a culture derived to reject the "norm". Scene kids might often be quoted as saying "I hate people that arn't themselves" or "I dress this way because this is who I am!". Ironically, there has become a set mold which scene kids seemingly strive to fit, and they all look/act the same.more...
