Scene kids have a long history. Originally, they listened to indie
music and the guys wore track jacket and had long dyed black hair. The girls wore jeans and band tees. As time went on, scene kids evolved. Now they are kids who listen to music described as "hardcore
," or any other number of "cores." They go to "shows," or concerts, on a regular basis but usually not to see famous bands. Common features of each are as follows:
Tight girl pants
Tight shirts made for little kids
Shoes such as Van's slipons, anything MacBeth
, "old school" Pumas or Nikes, or Adidas Sambas
Reverse mullets with one eye usually covered by hair
Hair dyed black with highlights of another color
Ears that are gauged
Kiss other boys but aren't necessarily bisexual
Band shirts or small tees
Rolled up girl pants
Purses with sequins
Hair usually dyed two colors
Short, choppy hair
Usually have a pearl necklace

Usually wear black or white bandanas
Strive to have knowledge of the most obscure bands
Use big words to appear intellectual
Greatly offended when called "scene" or "emo
Listen to rap
almost as much as the "cores"
Go to shows and throwdown
Hate skaters even though some may skate

Scene Kids usually have choppy black hair and wear eyeliner. The guys wear tight band shirts. More points if it's a band no one has heard of. They wear studded belts and chuck taylor or vans. Plastic bracelets and big white-rimmed glasses that take up half their face. Tight girl pants. Pearls and bows, hair bands and things that little kids would wear. Their screen names usually contain 'x's. The more x's you have, the more 'scene' you are. AIM profiles usually have their myspace
links in it, and are laced up with lyrics. More points if its 'emo'. Stars, hearts, and checkers are all 'scene'. Being straight edge is scene' Talking about how much you love a certain band, but you've only heard like 2 songs is 'scene.'
Neon colors, guns that go bang bang, vintage clothes, thrift stores, eyeliner like woah, polka dots, collared shirts, tight pants, black hoodies, gauged ears, lip rings, piercing your own body, studded jackets, etc. All scene.

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 lo...
The 'tougher', 'cooler' version of emo. Making it okay to make fun of emo kids because you're scene which, is way different.
Scene girl: "HAHA, LOOK AT THE STUPID EMO KID. I BET YOU SLIT YOUR WRISTS! IS THAT RIGHT BABE?"
Scene girl's friend: "..You wore her same outfit on Monday."
i would like to mention that typically whenever a scene kid sees another scene kid- they have to mention how much they hate scene kids, although they're really just pissed because they're both wearing the same belt.
scene boy "that girl over there thinks she's hard-core, but she's really just scene, ewe."
not scene kid "hey. that girl looks exactly like you. i think you're even wearing the same pants."
