General:

Scene kids are "kids" varying in age from 13-21, generally.
They, for the most part, living in the suburbs, go to large high schools with many other "scene kids" at the school. However, in what would seem contrary to logic, scene kids try not to associate or spend too much time around their fellow "scene kid".
A scene kids' biggest fear is being called a poser, so, they try to be as 'individual' as possible. Many kids on the scene, now, will dress with preppy, expensive dress shirts, sweater vests, etc, to avoid being associate with being too scene. However, they will always retain the tight, skinny jeans as they're a signature piece of clothing for any scene kid.
Scene kids also are know to use reverse phycology by calling themselves 'posers', because if they can call themselves 'posers' it proves that they're very confident; if a scene kid can call himself or herself a poser and their peers still think they're "scene" then that will greatly separate themselves from kids that ACTUALLY ARE posers.

Music:

Being scene, 'in the early days' was all about having one's myspace, facebook, etc. with a long list of all the bands that they know -well- and love, but no one else has ever heard of.
However, now, with posers diluting the scene, many scene kids will NOT list their favorite bands. Instead, their PM Personal Message will have lyrics from "gangster" songs that they will actually listen to and have on their iPod(or other Music Player) along with the usual mix of screamo and experimental music. Outlawz - Real Talk, Yeen Never-Chris Echols, etc. for example, have become a favorites because most people, especially preps have never head of those songs which helps scene kids retain their individual, 'underground' roots while staying fresh and new.
If you want to find out what a scene kids listens to, you're going to have to A) Invest a lot of time on MySpace or, look on their iPod(or whatever music player they use). The chance of you asking and getting granted this request is next to nothing but it is worth a try. Also, don't be surprised if you find songs like "Aneka - Japanese boy" on their music player! Scene kids, generally, DON'T ACTUALLY LISTEN to songs like that, it's just a joke.

Speech:

Scene kids never use "scene" lingo! Instead, they use gangster terminology.
Example:
Person one: Yo' is rollin' up da' mall at, like, 7:00pm, skillet? (are you going to the mall at 7:00pm, buddy?)
Person two: Fer' Skizzle* (Yeah)
Person three: 'K, keepz it strizzle. (OK, stay good)
*many scene kids use words that contain "izzle"

The gangster terminology, which is only ever used online by scene kids, and never in-person, is meant to contrast with the delicate, fragile persona that scene kids also try to project.
Scene kids, almost always slight, with their skinny jeans that are meant to accentuates their delicate bodies, use the gangster terminology to contrast with the fact that they, unlike the stereotypical "gangsters", are, in fact, very weak, sweet, and kind despite their superficial personality and they need to be treated as something breakable so extra tender love and care is needed.

The Cycle/The outlook for scene kids:

Many scene kids, started becoming "scene" SLOWLY when they were about 13 or 14. When they reach 15-17, they usually the 'sceneest' they'll ever been and once they reach 18, with their teen angst fading, will start, again slowly, to assimilate and conform. This, for better or worse, is common amongst nearly all members of all sub cultures.

Sadly, the scene, despite the best effort of true scene kids, is on 'life support' and doesn't look like it can last much longer under the weigh of people who don't truly understand what it means to be a scene kid: All trends have their beginnings and ends, for better or worse.
The scene is, was, and in the foreseeable future will continue to be a vibrant community of youth expressing their individuality -- not cliché, it is the truth.
Person one: Wow, scene kids are really, really different!
Person two: Yeah, but they're OK...I guess
Person three: Naww.. I love 'em!

Ignorant kids who steal punk culture, milk it's fashion to death, and remove all the politics, attitude, purpose from it all for the sake of fashion and "individuality". Individuality they ruin because they assimilate it to the point where everyone from rap fans to the Olson twins can wear it and the word individuality it's self looses meaning.

It's all about looking good and being selfish.
Punk's took ugly and made it shocking, scene kids took ugly and made it fashionable.

in response to the kid who said something along the lines of scene kids being harassed for their beliefs, i would like to take a second to ask you exactly what those beliefs are. 3 hours of applying make up is better than 2? the more colors they have in their hair, the cooler they look? nay, my friend, the sole reason they exist is to try to stand out more than the person standing next to them. however, rather than being unique in belief and conviction, they just choose to spend their money on the newest trends. yes, i have seen that many scene kids are "vegan." but perhaps they need to have that stupid make up slapped off their face. make up promotes animal tests. against corporate america? stop buying clothes made on foreign shores by children younger than themselves for pennies a day. in all honesty, they stand for nothing. make if they'd get the hair out of their eyes, they could see how meaningless their piddling little lives are. the end.
all people that go to shows to talk and have people look at them instead of for the music are scene kids. stay out of my pit, yuppie scum.

Often called "the new emo," scene kids wear choppy hairstyles, heavy makeup (especially eyeliner), and tight-fitting vintage clothes. They pride themselves on listing to indie bands and shun the mainstream, regardless of how good the music may be. Are generally not annoying, unless they start to talk about how they are "non-conformist."
"Aw man, I hate scene kids. They go on and on about how they're non conformist, when in reality they're just kids trying to fit in."
"I hate people that go on about how scene kids are actually conforming. Of course they are, it's obvious. Discussion over."

Non-conforming conformists. Doesn't make much sense, but then neither does the entire 'movement.' Developed from the 'emofags' except, not as whiny; but still pussies when compared to goths, which is pretty bad. Identified by their tight fitting clothing, eye-covering bangs and often colored hair.

When questioned on their status they'll insist they are merely music enthusiasts; quick to brush off so called 'sell out bands' which they secretly listen to while biting their pillows.

The only saving grace to this of many myspace spawned groups is that 'scene-chicks' will often take extremely revealing mirror-pictures of themselves, but even then.
Typical scene kids conversation

-This band is so cool, I hope they never see any success so we don't have to label them sellouts.

-I agree, pass me my clove cigarettes.

deriving from the classification of "Emo," usually a good hearted, stylish looking guy or girl who listens to actually really good music that no one has ever heard of. Just because you haven't heard about the band doesn't mean everyone hasn't heard about the band.
Suck it up an let posers be posers and scene kids be scenes...as long as it doesn't screw with your head then you shouldn't worry about it.

"unfortunate, tortured youth," often complain about their teen angst with not much consideration for anyone with any real-world issues or other people in general. "Scene kid" often coincides with wearing obscure band t-shirts (even if they've never heard them), dying and cutting one's hair more than once ever 2 weeks or so, playing in some obscure band that usually sucks (with an extremely random name), and wearing "outlandish" clothing to get attention. Often threaten to do stupid things for small amounts of money but really have no balls at all and are all talk. Usually fortunate suburban kids who feel they have something to express by going to "shows" and jumping on each other and making people feel less scene than they (calling others, ironically enough,"poseurs"), scene kids tend to hang out at the mall (probably near but not too near a hot topic), they're the kids wearing the Taking Back Sunday t-shirt to the TBS show, and they most definitely claim to have heard them first and might even know them personally, because it matters oh so much (!?). most scene kids probably don't really know who they are because they've spent so much time following the crowd of myspace users and spend more time trying to figure out if Warped Tour is still cool and taking pictures of themselves from angles than they have on job applications or learning anything relevant to "real life."
you? maybe not. look around. black cut up gloves? hair in face? tons of eye liner and lip gloss (guy or girl). Yeah, that's a scene kid. Laughing at you? YES it probably is. "I'm seriously going to punch those scene kids in the face."
