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

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!

A word adopted by Emo kids, who are annoyed about the fact that, GOD ALMIGHTY, someone else has the same plastic neon beads as them, and therefore they are "blatantly scene".

It's just a label so that when someone feels their so called "individuality" threatened by another emo, they can class them as "scene kids" and everything is all brilliant.

Also, the term scene can be used by TOTALLY HARDCORE emo's, who want to be SO FRIGGIN emo that they are like, actually BEYOND, and tada, they become "to scene for your ass". And it's suddenly all about how scene they are because christ, you would never catch them wearing drain-pipes, since they are actually not retro at all, and all the other less scene kids are wearing them to impress the emo kids that actually classed them as scene kids in the first place.

Yeah, basically. Scene kid's aren't the problem, it's the few emo's who are way to big headed to admitt someone else might have a clothing and music taste as carefully designed, copied and obviously "totally individual" said Emo.
Average Jo: Hey, did you see Kelly was wearing totally cool footless-tights the other day.
Arrogant emo girl: Friggin scene kid. She's only doing it cause it's "emo".
Average JO: I thought you had a pair?
Arrogant emo girl: I do, god, see what I mean about copying, friggin Scene kids.

Scene kids usually all look alike and have the same hairstyle. They don't have their own style, even though some girls say they do.

Female scene kids usually have choppy hair or hair that resembles a huge mullet. They wear little girl clips and are obsessed with eyeliner. They are also obsessed with little kid stuff. They wear skinny jeans with stripped shirts. A lot of the times they wear little kid shirts. They wear flats, leggings, and stripped socks. They always have a picture of them in this certain pose. Their mouth would be opened like they're surprised. They take pictures with the camera high above their side so you could only slightly see the side of their face. They usually have their mouth to the side or make stupid "ugly and cute" facial expressions. The pictures are always photoshopped of course.
come to the show with me ily!! && give me fruity pebbles they make me smile ♥♥ lol rawr scene kid

Any kid involved with the music scene. Often thought of as the other use of 'scene kid' which refers to kids with brightly coloured teased hair, a lot of neon bracelets, Converse shoes and Blood On The Dance Floor but the term is much more broader. Any punk, emo, prep ect. can be considered a scene kid if they follow local bands or even touring ones. There's no point spreading hate in this lifestyle with bullshit labels because most people are in it because they don't have to much else going for them and music helped them.
Person 1: Did you see that scene kid? What a idiot she thinks she looks so cool.
Person 2: Shut up, you have a bright red mohawk and walk around in platform boots. Your doing what other people do to you right now.
Person 1: Huh.

Scene kids are often found in malls shopping at Hottopic. Scene kids are very close with a small group of friends. Scene kids typically wear eyeliner (girls) but not all the way down to their cheak bone. They are often mistaken for an emo kid. SCENE KIDS TO NOT CUT. Being scene is not always a bad thing. But their is taking it to far. For example, more than 2 colors in your hair is just starting to be to much. Most scene kids either have gauges, lots of ear piercings or face piercings. Scene kids can be very cool people who's personalitys all slightly differ. Most scene kids are always on the scene meaning at the rock shows (Warped Tour) Skinny Jeans, Converse, Vans, black boots, a band t-shirt, or somthing involving hello kitty are often included in a scene kids wardrobe. Most of these clothes are very tight. Hair of both sexes is usually parted to the side. Scene Kids are the new wave hardcore kids. Often mistaken for emo because of people's ignorance. 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. Scene kids are often mistaken for emo kids. Scene is a mixture of emo and preppy and they like to go to shows (where the scene is). Scene kids will occasionally listen to a rap song.

Some Bands are: A Day to Remember, Blood on the Dance Floor, Breathe Carolina, The Devil Wears Prada, or Black Veil Brides
Look at that Scene Kid! She's hot shit, with her tight jeans and that Warped Tour shirt!
