hmmm.. alright.... how scene turned into scene..
in the 1980s the punk kids got together, and thought about all this music they were writing and said basically that they were tired of regan rock and wanted to write about their girlfriends, or the troubles at home or something slightly more appealing to not only a larger crowd, would incorporate some of their life rather than presidents or celebrities into their music. This slowly turned into a more musically oriented crowd, and musical style called emo (which was brought up as a slur by the way, the producers didnt think it would hit big, so they called them emo, due to their emotive lyrics). This musical style was entertaining and had more musical talent in the songs, rather than punk which was mostly power chords and major chord progressions, which was transposed to every instrument they played in the band. As the emo popularity grew, it stemmed into a softer, even more musically motivated crowd called indie, they generally wore thick rimmed glasses, skinny jeans (not tight) old school vans, and a short bowl cut, they were looked down upon as "posers" because they couldnt back the lyrics which they wrote. Indie and emos then merged in the ninties to create yet another culture.. this music was highly computer based, used synthesizers, and sirens, and followed very closely drug and sex based lyrics (for example: pulled up at the stoplight, the drugs on the dashboard, look at the mess we made tonight. kick off your stilettos, kick off your stilettos, and fuck me in the back seat, fuck me in the back seat ~the medic droid) and thus the birth of scene. it didnt really kick off until the oughts came around, however the style is fairly general, even though every person who is in this culture likes to be unique (what teenager doesnt?). they borrowed alot of styles from the eighties, such as big thick glasses, tight pants (if your a boy) tighter pants (if your a girl) and piercings and tattoos are certainly not looked down upon. usually band tee shirts, that are usually pretty tight, and skater shoes (vans adios es dc oaisis etc.). anything neon as well, or will show up in a blacklight. indeed like all teenagers (which is where most of this whole stuff started) scenes can be arrogant, know it all, flashy, hypocritical, and a large majority of people who call themselves scene are in fact posers ( for the sake of example: say they do drugs, say they have sex every weekend, but seriously, how many teenagers do you think are rolling X and having sex every single weekend?) but this is part of going through puberty, and seriously alot of scene people are really arrogant, and posers, but then there are a majority who just sort of keep to themselves, however people tend to notice the ones who behave badly because its noticeable. I see where those people are coming from.. the ones that write rather ugly definitions for scenes and emos and punks etc., however you notice jocks and preps and cheerleaders do bad shit, and you notice scenes who do bad shit, cause no matter who you are, where you belong, what friends your going to hang out with, if your going to do bad shit, you will, and if you wont you wont. thats it.

those are the ones i listen to anyway, and guess what, i dont wear tight jeans, wear blocky sunglasses or have an obscene haircut.. so yeah just the music for me thanks.
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...
