The term, "scene," is used in several ways.

1. Another word for "subculture" that doesn't sound quite so scientific, allowing it to be used in daily conversation. Used this way it usually has an adjective modifying it: the "indy scene" or the "hardcore scene" or the "emo scene." When someone refers to a particular "scene," they're talking about everything - the people, the places, the fashion, the music, and the trends.

2. A tongue-in-cheek reference to the trends and fashions of the various scenes. Many of these subcultures were built around countercultural ideals and nonconformist attitudes; the fact that trends even exist is humorous irony, and using "scene" as an adjective originally intended to lampoon that.

3. A trend of sorts that evolved from the indy, emo, and hardcore scenes (see the first definition); basically, anything that can be sold at Hot Topic. As events like Warped Tour - and artists like Avril Lavigne - became popular, the trends and fashions of these three scenes (and a few others) were gradually amalgamized and commericalized to create the generic "scene" monkier. Someone who is "scene" generally borrows from the various subcultures and combines them together - you can tell they're part of *a* scene, but no one is quite sure *what* scene. It is important to note that this use of "scene" refers to a fashion trend - it isn't a subculture in its own right, because it has no music, venues, or attitudes of its own to live on after it loses popularity.

4. An ironic insult toward followers of the "scene" trend outlined in 3. Calling someone "scene" brings up images of Avril Lavigne, Hot Topic, Good Charlotte, and, more recently, Myspace; it implies that he or she is a fair-weather fan, conforming to be popular or to fit in. In that sense, it is related to the term poseur. It also implies being more worried about the more visible icons of a particular scene (the fashion and language, for example) than the music that the scene is founded on. Calling someone a scenester basically means the same thing.
1. Atreyu is a relative newcomer to the hardcore scene, but is developing a rabid cult fanbase.

2. Wow... a Thundercats shirt, crotch-hugging faded jeans, and a devilock... how very scene of you. Not to mention your ratty Converse shoes or your Know Your Mushrooms armband.

3. Be more scene. Shop at Hot Topic.

4. Enjoy being scene while it lasts, because Myspace isn't enough to keep it going once the next fad hits.

They are the idiotic people in the world who want to make a fashion statement by trying to bring back the retro 80's look.
The "boys" (unless they chopped their dicks off) dress int he following or will look like the following:
1.Tight pants
2.Occassional eyeliner,despite it may look bad on them
3.Hair covering half their face
4.Weigh less then their girlfriends
5.Wear youth small t-shirts
6.Have an obsession with dinosaurs,fake labret pierceings,and crappy bands that use synthasizers to make it sound like the shitty pop-rock music that came out in the 80's
7.Wear the classic slip-on Vans with the blacka nd white checkers for the sole reason it has checkers.
8.Their myspaces would have things a white backround saying "Rawr ima dinosaur" and have colors like bright pinka and lime green.

How the girls dress:
Pretty much the same as the guys,except the guys cloths might be smaller.

Kids decided to cut their hair in choppy short layers and dye random sections while taking pictures with their hand over their mouth in a "shocked" expression while holding a sign in their other that says I LOVE CAROLINE!! <3. Their attire consists of tight black tee shirts or tank tops with many bracelets covering their wrists. They wear tight pants, generally in a shocking color, such as green. They are usually bitchy.

The act of dressing like an emo person, yet you aren't depressed and you love life. Somewhat a poser but not.

A very annoying group of people who flock to any local show. These people are often seen having hair, which is similar to that of the emo style.

Scene people are not exactly emo though. They are generally just about the appearance and currently cool fads. They commonly wear shirts with dinosaurs on them, or local bands, to fit into the scene. The girls drench themselves in white beaded necklaces. They have also tried stealing Vans and Converse, but it's still better than preps getting their hands on it. Scene people are just into the fads and are RIDICULOUSLY OBSESSED with myspace.
Look at those scene kids, flocking to the local shows.
