"Scene" is a sort of subgenre, a mixture of emo and preppy. You can usually spot a scene kid from miles away by their bright, attractive eyeliner/hair colors. Scene boys and scene girls both wear tight girl jeans; usually of the drainpipe variety. Scene girls are often found in attractively arranged if not totally random outfits, which consist of tight jeans, cute tee shirts or thermals with things like hello kitty, the teenage mutant ninja turtles, or power rangers on them. Vans slip ons, usually checkered, make up the majority of their footwear, as well as ballet flats, and just plain flats. Occasionally, wedges, too. Their outfits vary from person to person; vintage sweaters and vests are also popular, as well as tight, gray or black zip up hoodies. And band tee shirts are a must, mostly for metal bands, however, with incomprehensible writing on them and some drawing of a person being eviscerated, and the like. White studded belts are also popular. They also wear large, chunky necklaces, pearls, et cetera.

For boys, it's pretty much the same, however, instead of flats, they're inclined to wear skate shoes, and large "gangster" hats are popular as well. Both genders tend to have lots of piercings, such as a septum, monroe, and the less popular septum. Mostly, they've got a piercing on one side of their lip, and gauges in their ears. Scene boys hair is more often a plain color, such as black or red or brown, as opposed to the myriad of colors that girls can covet. Both usually possess choppy, over-one-eye hairstyles, though they sometimes have mod bangs, too.

Boys can wear eyeliner, though it isnt as encouraged as it is in the emo culture, and girls wear as much or as little as they please. Scene girls are also pretty obsessed with designer labels, such as Chanel and Dolce & Gabanna. Also, both can be seen wearing clothes from stores such as Hollister and Abercrombie. Sidekick 3's are very often used by scene kids. Scene boys are usually a lot less nice than scene girls, though, obviously, it depends on the person. Straight edge is becoming less and less trendy, though a lot of scenesters still are. Christianity and vegetarianism are both pretty trendy, however.

Emo kids and scene kids are completely different, and are not to be confused. Scene kids are more into the 'local scene,' and to the majority of them, music means everything. They'll always be spotted at local shows, concerts, coffeeshops, etc. Scene girls are usually obsessed with fashion, and fashion magazines (i.e. Vogue, and Teen Vogue). Fake eyelashes are also highly associated with scene girls, and they often shave off their eyebrows and pencil them on. Why, you ask? Nobody knows. False nails, and being extremely pale are pretty scene as well. Also, scene kids will always, always, always deny that they are scene. That's one of the many ways you can spot a poseur. After all, real scene kids are too scene to admit that they're scene.

Energy drinks are also highly popular with them, as well as Glaceau Vitamin Water. They also are prone to saying things such as "wdup blud," and "lawlz." Pretending to be a gangster is a big part of the scene image, and many scene kids even listen to rap. But it doesn't make them any less scene! Scene kids always have a myspace, or a xanga, or a facebook, or all three, as well. Their myspace display names are usually something along the lines of "______ Murder," "______ Homicide," etc, etc, though it varies with the person.

Myspace pages of theirs are often filled with songs that used to be popular, (i.e. Tainted Love, All the Small Things, and old rap songs-- you get the picture) and numerous photographs of their favorite designer logo, their alcoholic beverage of choice, and their cell phone. Hello Kitty is also highly popular with girls, as well as coloring books, black and white photographs, and a cityscape photograph. For boys, they often have pictures of admiring scene girls who make them signs, banners for bands that they like, and an energy drink they love.

in conclusion, scene kids r rad! lolz.

If I were asked to define a "scene kid", normally my answer would be, "A whore (Not necessarily in the prostitute form, although at least 75% of them will have sex with anything that moves.) who enjoys not only making a fool of them-selfself, but making them-self completely devoid of any intelligence, individuality, and having general ignorance of both the musical and written arts (including paintings, drawings, etc.), as well as a complete ignorance to society in general. More than likely this person will drop out of school, or never attend college, and end up with a dead end job at a mall, or whatever public establishment is cool at the time. This person will say "Working at the mall isn't that bad," or something to that effect, however, we all know that this is not true, because while you are wasting your time making minimum wage, the rest of us sensible people will be contributing to society (although it is all quite pointless, seriously, you'll be forgotten in one hundred years regardless of your accomplishments.) and supporting ourselves and our families with our high income. This particular subculture (if it can be called that, I feel 'label' could be more fitting) also enjoys listening to horrible music. (see: Screamo) After all, it is the cool thing to listen to, right?

Personally, I don't give a shit, just stop flailing your arms around and acting like douche bags. Grow the fuck up.
Scene kids are giant faggots. End of story.

What is up with everyone claiming that just the Emo look is called scene? it's not. A 'Scene kid' is someone who takes over the look of a specific genre. If you like Emo/Hardcore and you wear your sisters Jeans then you're a scene kid. If you like Rap & wear your big brothers XXL G-Unit shirt than you're a scene kid. If you're A metal head and you wear bandanas in your long hair then you're a scene kid. If you like Ska and wear checkered patterns or dress like Rudy/Skanker then you're a scene kid. Half the population in this retarded world is a Scene Kid. get it right.
"hey, look at that scene kid. He listens to Punk-Rock!"
"hey, look at that scene kid...I can tell he really likes Rap"
"that scene kid has the look of the emo genre...his taste in music isn't that good..."

Same emo, different music. Often persecuted.
For a better idea of a scene kid, see emo for reference.

Think of a scene kidd, only tring to set a neww trend the the other sceneiez don't follow. When you are scene you have the specific style and your taste in music and attitude can be whateven it is. Only your doing what makes you different. It really doesn't matter because When it comes down to it, you are labled like everone else even if you don't want to be kay bbydollface?Psst... get over the lable shyt. PEOPLE LABLE OTHER PEOPLE! As a side note: Not every scene kidd has to have piercings in the same places and dye their hair w/ neon colors! Some people are totally against it and are STILL labled as a sceneie. some people would like too go too shows, but can't afford to go to every show their fave bands make. And some people would like too keep their hair healthy and i dunno bbydollface, NOT BURNT AND DAMEGED in like a matter of 2 yrs. Godd, sorry if I insulted anyone, but being scene is being individule, and to be that, you follow the guidelines and add in what the phuck makes you who you are. So there.
{Mwah.} Scene kids

First of all, I have absolutely nothing against these so called "scene kids"; Most of the people either insult them because they hold a grudge, or defend them because they actually are ONE of them.

Personally, I think the scene look is nice.

But scene is just another way of saying poseur or fake.

They all look the same though they claim to be "different", and here's the funny part, no teenager becomes scene unless he/she knows other scene kids.
they don't give a shit about what you have to say, but won't try anything if everybody else isn't doing it.
they don't want labels, but are constantly posting things such as "let's cause a scene", getting the typical 'scene' names " Kim Br00tal" and such, and
are all into dinosaurs, hellokitty, gloomy bear, colorful hair, and all listen to only the most hardcore music (bring me the horizon, etc).
100% of them considered themselves "emo"
before the new emo, now called "scene".

In reality, they all just want to be known as PUNK. their "hard core", "rebelliousness" is all taken from the punk scene, but now it's not punk anymore, it's SCENE.

Regular conversation between two Scene Kids :

XxXSceneKid1XxX: "0mG! M0NST3R DRINkZz!"
XxXSceneKid2xXXx: " R4WRRR!"

half the people on here who've made articles on scene kids probably have no real idea of what one is!
if you knew anything about scene kids you would understand that although alot of them can be complete twats and faggots, they are actually nice people. alot of my friends are scene kids and they hate the fact that many people dislike them just because of the way they dress. scene kids often dress in skinny jeans and band tops, but the girls also wear shorts/skirts with tights or leggings and usually bright jewelry and hama bead design necklaces.

they normally have blonde or dark brown/black hair with some form of highlights but not always. some wear extensions but i know some with short hair.

next time you see someone you assume to be a scene kid, dont automatically reject them.

cant be bothered for example of scene kid
