it's as simple as people that are really into the local music scene. i don't know about anywhere else, but in Seattle, its usually in the genres of emo, hardcore, and metalcore.

a lot of scene kids are straight edge. that really is mostly because of this groups affiliation with original hardcore (which is where emo evolved from and emocore), which is bands like minor threat, bad brains, dead Kennedys, 7 seconds, etc. not everyone realizes what some in the 80s did with the whole straight edge thing, but oh well. some people just took it too far and killed people who drank, smoke, and/or did drugs.

now this is a little bit of a rant, but this is my opinion here:

what confuses me (first of all i'm too a scene kid, the girl pants, emohawk, all of it) is that scene kids get pissed when they get made fun of for being scene, especially when someone calls them emo. Now in my opinion, emo kids usually are preps or people from some other stereotyped group that is in the beggining stages of converting to scene. But when you look at it as a whole, THEY ARE SO CLOSELY RELATED, IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE WHY PEOPLE WOULD CONFUSE THE TWO. so don't get pissed off just because peopel are uneducated, unless they put themselves in that situation.

i won't say much more. other than scene kids usually know a ton about music, but they don't do much with it other then try to impress people with it. it's almost as if it's a contest of who can know more about music. oh well, i just like emo, indie, hardcore, spazzcore, metalcore, etc. just because it's not mainstreamed. fall out boy used to be scene, until they started focusing on the money and adding other people to their music. but that's another issue, selling out sucks.
a lot of scene kids also hate rap with a passion. but recently, scene kids are popping up in the rap scene as well. like gym class heroes. don't know why, scene kids to me are the more antithesis to rap, but whatever

Scene kids usually go to local shows have extremly tight groups. They may be there for the music but usually they are there for the social time. Scene kids are usually very picky about who they talk to and associate with. If they deem you cool they may go up to you and talk to you and act as if they've known you for years.

Your typical scene kid, guy or girl, will either have black hair, or some insane color, or just crazy streaks, with a shock of bangs covering up one eye or both. Hair MUST be dead straight. Sometimes it's poofy-spiked in the back, whatever u call it. Pretty much just the white kids follow the hair trend. Or girls of other ethnicities. I do NOT recommend this part to black guys. Ever seen one with long hair and a poof in the bag? WITH a shock of bangs and crazy hair color? Not the best visual I assume.

Guys will typically have on extremely tight skinny jeans, sometimes girls jeans, with a really tight fitting band t-shirt and bracelets. The jeans usually aren't flares or bootcuts, but straight-leg pencil jeans.

Girls will normally have on the same thing or funky outfits that won't match but will go together. Typical outfit will consist of a polka-dot or striped shirt with a band hoody and they will have on sometimes skirts with crazy leggings. Lots of leggings. They will wear little kid barrettes and bows, bright eyeshadow, the hugest sunglasses in the world, and strands of pearls/beads. Oh and handbands are a MUST.

A lot of scene chicks will wear no namebrand clothing and then have a really expensive designer bag.

Definately a cool belt, sometimes the buckle worn on the side, like on the hip.

Straight-Edge(no smoking, no drinking) & being Christian & being a vegetarian is really popular. I never knock straight-edge. Even though it's become a trendy thing, at least it promotes good health.

Saying omgzzzz & rawr & bikthx (I don't know why either).

Both guys and girls will wear loads of eyeliner and Converse chucks or Vans.

They're favorite pastime is of course going to lots of shows, and doing it up on MySpace. Most people consider scene kids to be MySpace whores, because they will add any and everyone just to get their friends count up (they're not the only ones tho!). Will have a gazillion photos of themselves photoshopped, covering their mouth, throwing up peace signs, doing the pigeon toe, holding the camera up in the air, them and one of their friends putting their faces together while smiling and looking down with their bangs all in their face,kissing the mirror, or holding their knees & looking down as though to say that they're sad. They'll give their pictures random titles that make no sense, just makes them sound deep. Tend to come off either overly depressed when they're more than likely not, or they'll seem incredibly conceited, vain, and arrogant. Most aren't that way, they just do it because everyone else is. There are some cool/nice ones though.

They're typical username on Myspace will have to do with they're favorite band/song or just death/suicide. Will normally have brackets around things or lots of X's. Scene kids have the most awesome pages on Myspace AND the most "friends". A lot of them will use words like Terror,Strange, & Suicide in their names. Ex: Travis Terror, or Emily Suicide. They also like to use the copyright and trademark symbols.

A lot of them wear bandanas around their necks or around their head or even covering their face. They use old slang like rad and stellar. And old hip hop/urban slang no one uses anymore, like fashizzle & fosho. They like to call each other nigga, nikka, nukka. Obsessed with robots and dinosaurs.

They like to say random silly offthewall things that make no sense, but to them it's helarious.

A vast majority of scene kids are bisexual or gay. For most it's just part of the trend that they're following. For others who ARE bi/gay, it's a way for them to fit in and make friends.

Part of the trend is random making out with someone of the same sex, in front of large crowds. I don't get this either, but hey it's what they do. Kinda hot sometimes when it's guys. I'm just sayin......

That's it. That's a scene kid for you. Don't knock the scene kids. I mean they're not going around knocking the hip hop kids or the preps. A scene kid will not interfere with your lifestyle, so, don't interfere with theirs.
See above for an example of a Scene Kid. Shit my fingers hurt.

for the love of God, come on.
i mean, everyone makes fun of 'scene' kids or 'emo' kids for comforming to something that is supposed to be a symbol of non-comformity. You are all contradicting yourselves. Your saying that you want to hurt/kill/piss on?!? someone for the way they look? Has the human race honestly regressed that far back? take a look at movies like - mississippi burning, the pianist or to kill a mockingbird. Your acting the same way as the people in the movies. Your critisiing someone for their beliefs. I do not identify as 'emo' 'indie' or 'scene' but i do own vans slip ons, i do wear tight jeans, and i do listen to bands that the majourity of my classmates have not heard of. But just because my jeans are tighter than yours does not make me a lesser human being, or a 'fag' as you so delictaly put it. someone listens to obscure bands? Why the fuck do you care? get a FUCKING hobby. please. people who listen to unpopular music do so, for the most part, because music is a huge part of life for them, and seeing it slowly stripped down and sold for ratings waters down the concepts that the music originaly held. That is why they prefer to listen to bands that you dont know about, so that they DONT become like my chemicle romance, fall out boy, ect. If you still thnk that they are conforming, than think of this. People who go to AE or AF ae spending ALOT of money on the clothes they buy. Kids who go to vintage stores are buying cheap and for the most part really nice clothing. everyone, whether you want to admit it or not, has before, will in the future, or is copying someone. It doesnt make you a bad person though, it makes you a human, cause the sad fact is, that there is no originaly left, everything has been done. So if kids want to hold on to what they see as the last shred of originaly left in modern society, let them. and fuck off.
uneducated person's rant -
emo boyz and scene kids are such FAGS. with their girls jeans and eye liner. They are all trend followers! i want to kill them all because they listen to obscure music and wear clothes that fit well. i will also make durogatory comments about the size of their genitals, specualte about their sexual preferences and continuely judge them as a whole instead of everyone at a time. HARDXCORE

scene kids? kids who know the music scene, sure they dress alike, but who doesnt these days? most chavs wear sports clothing, most goths wear black, but whos to say that wearing skinny-jeans and eyeliner is a bad thing?
everybody's different, different people belong to different cliques, different cliques follow different fashions...whats so wrong about that?

people have different ways of doing things, why cant that just be accepted?
everyone is a person, no matter what they dress like or how they wear their hair, scene kids or not

Scene Kids are the new wave hardcore kids. Often mistaken for emo because of people's ignorance. They are actually a happy new trend. They are the other half of the hardore civil war (meatheads vs scene kids) they also listen to screamo, techno, punk rock, indie rock and hip hop. All scene kids style and straighten their hair. Most wear eyeliner (not to be confused with emo eyepaint), girl pants and tight band/splash paint style shirts. It is rare to see a scene kid without converse shoes but, vans or retro shoes are also in their list of clothing accessories. THEY DO NOT CUT THEIR WRISTS... like I said before they are not emo and tend to dislike EMOtionaly unhappy people. In more urban areas scene kids carry hand guns and are more gang like. Most scene kids go to shows regularly and are seen in pits hardcore dancing.
From First to Last is a band scene kids might listen to while Dashboard Confessional is a band emo kids listen to.
