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!

A large amount of people of both genders, usually from the age of 15-25. They are mostly found in the infamous website, Myspace.com but are also found in livejournal.com and vampirefreaks.com.

Scene kids or "scensters" most of the time aren't "assholes" or "douche bags". It is a 50/50 range when it comes to the personality of a scene person. They are human, just like you, with a personality that is just as unique as your own.

"Scene kids" usually are known for their teased hair or piercings. When honestly, scene kids often range when it comes to their style. A large amount of scene men and women tease their hair, some wear heavy amount of make up (mostly with the women, though.) and other usually stick with a certain clothes brand or style. Usually tight pants/low or v-neck tshirts/lots of jewlery. Scene kids are very creative and are very interesting people.

Scene kids are also very known to be very faithful to music and usually go to many shows. Not only for local bands but also for more mainstream bands. They often know the whole history of many bands and stay devoted fans of music. Not only music but with art and photography. Most scene kids are very great in art and have very amazing artistic skills in photoshop, microsoftpaint, or the open canvas itself. Other are very interested in photography and take many pictures with extremely good cameras (exp: The Minolta, a very good almost professional camera.)

Scene Kids are humans just like you and me and are very unique and range from person to person. It's just who you meet that will make up your mind about scenesters.
"That scene kid's hair is huge!"

"Stay brutal, scene kids!"

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.
