Okay lets get this whole problem straight first of all do some research before you write things down. Emo is actually spilt off of the hardcore of the 1980's it orginally stood for emotional hardcore. The scene start in washington d.c. because they believed hardcore kids were becoming to violent and just showing up at shows to hurt people the did not believe in the punk rock ideals made clear but hardcore bands such as minor threat. Emo became more popular during the 90's as an indie style pioneered by bands such as sunny day real estate and texas is the reason. Now the interesting thing about emo is it isn't actually around anymore you see it was really just an offshoot of punk similar to the hardcore of the 80's and the more pop side of punk in the 90's. Now we can get to scene kids they listen to bands that are around today such as silverstein and boys like girls. Which is pop music with a little bit of rock thrown in. Never call someone emo because it does not actually exist anymore there are no emo bands anymore only scene bands. As stated pervoiusly emo is just an offshoot of punk that stayed around for a little bit and doesn't exist anymore. It is also very important to know the difference between scene and punk. Punk is politically and socially motivated whereas scene is rebellion as sold at hot topic. Hopefully everyone understands the difference.
emo kid will listen to sunny day real estate, texas is the reason
scene kid will listen to silverstein, boys like girls, my chemical romance, pink spiders
punk kid will listen to against me, anti-flag, rise against, minor threat

Kids who whore themselves on a daily basis on myspace.

They have no originality whatsoever.

They decorate their myspaces with pictures of diamonds, bats, gloomy bears, hello kitty, and other shit.

A lot of them are self-absorbed and are bitches, but no, not all of them are.

Some of them are actually nice.

Most of them claim to be -in love- with photography.

Most claim to be vegetarian/vegan.

Not to be racist, but the majority of them are white.

They call all their "scene friends" nigga, nigg, nigz, nigglet, or whatever. But they don't have the guts to say it in public towards blacks.

They have names like:
Jackie Chanel.
Tommy Terror.
Minnie Murder.
Lisa Hollywood.

A lot of the scene girls have raccoon stripes in their hair.

They wear tight pants, both girls and boys.

They claim to be anti-mainstream, even though the way they dress IS becoming mainstream.

A lot of them look up to Kiki Kannibal, Jeffree Star, Audrey Kitching, etc.
LexiiStarxx: zomg bby. me and you are ttly cute scene kids. fer sure! let's make babies. rawrrr.

A teenager dressed in the latest supposedly unique trend. They also like to hang around malls and places where everyone can see them because, a lot like emos (which a lot of them are), they live for attention.
"Dude, why are these boys in suit jackets and why are all these girls wearing so much big beaded necklaces that it's dragging their heads down?"

"Because they're scene kids."

Kids who spend too much time on Myspace, are incredibly vain, like diamonds, enjoy hairspray/eyeliner/big hair, and other things such as ugly dolls, gloomy bear, and hello kitty. They look up to Scene Queens such as Audrey Kitching and Jeffree Star. They wear way too much makeup and photoshop their pictures. Well, most of them do.
Some examples of Scene kids are
by Jake Hates Scene Kids March 17, 2007
little more than barely legal girls trying really really hard to be debbie harry (although her song "rip her to shreds" describes an early version of the "scenester" girl--but they probably don't know that because the only songs they know are "Call Me" and "Heart of Glass")
OR guys in their early 20's who have either no facial hair or a really stupid looking beard and/or mustache...AND they like to show off their buttcracks when they lean over the bar in their tight-ass pants.
in cleveland the scene kids all do the girls' pants, white belt thing.
Girls almost always wear black and white striped things, footless tights, really ugly flats that don't match their outfits (on purpose), and yes, way too much makeup. They also tend to try and look very "80's" even though they were born at the very end of the decade and know nothing about the culture at that time except for what they see in the movies, which is over-the-top just like them.
Guys wear strictly the black and white lowtop converse, look like their hair was cut by their 4 year old sister, and usually claim to be bisexual.
Actually, that goes for both guys AND girls.
So does frequenting 80's nites of all kinds. The coolest scene kids are on the dance floor, usually standing in one place and moving their arms a little bit (guys) or dancing together trying to make people horny (girls). The girls usually wear spike heels and legwarmers when they go to 80's nite.
Scene kids smoke Camels because the Camel reps in town are also "scenesters" (tall, slightly nerdy looking guy in dark glasses and borderline dress-up clothes with his cute little asian girlfriend who wears just about anything)
They drink PBR almost exclusively (that is, if they are old enough to drink at all).
If they are not at 80's nite they can usually be found at one of the upscale outdoor malls near their home (most likely their parents' home as well) where they can shop at urban outfitters and h&m (so annoying...there is so much stigma attached to both stores now which is really too bad--damn kids!)
Yes, kids. That's the operative word here. True "scene kids" usually are not any older than 21.
Thank GOD most people grow out of that phase eventually!
