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," "grindcore," 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:

Guys:
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

Hoodies

Black eyeliner

Lip piercings

Ears that are gauged

Kiss other boys but aren't necessarily bisexual

Girls:

Band shirts or small tees

Rolled up girl pants

Purses with sequins

Hair usually dyed two colors

Short, choppy hair

Septum piercings

Monroe piercings

Eyebrow piercings

Usually have a pearl necklace

Consider Marilyn Monroe a role model

Both:

May be straightedge

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 or twostep

Hate skaters even though some may skate

Claim that everyone copied them

type in all lower case and never use punctuation except for periods orXreplaceXspacesXwithXupperXcaseXxs

scene happens to be a very popular trend right now. it's funny because the "scene" was made for people who're original and don't follow the crowd but set their own trends. so why is it that all scene people are exactly the same? oh no, i understand, one day you just decided that robots, dinosaurs, and guns were "hella raddd" scene kids like their lightening to be "electrikk" and their guns go "bangbang" and shoot out hearts, stars, or rainbows. they say they're just original yet they're all exact copies of one another.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A SCENE BOY:
-tight pants
-SEXX hair that covers most of their face but not their awesome lip ring or snake bites
-tight band t-shirt
-two possibilities for jackets: a big one with a furry hood or a tight one, usually black and for a band.
-converse
-eyeliner
-they'l be surrounded by a lot of other scene boys and girls

HOW TO IDENTIFY A SCENE GIRL:
-short choppy hair, usually black. most of the time they'll be random pieces that are white, platinum blonde, or a neon color
-always dressed in black and then a lot of bright colors, usually hot pink or lime green
-TONS of makeup. a lot of black eyeliner followed by a metallic color like a teal or pink for eyeshadow.
-they'll probably be wearing a brightly colored bandana around their "SEXX HAIR"
-if they don't have a bandana they'll be wearing a bow made for little girls or a brightly colored headband
-when they wear bracelets, it's not just one, it's about 50 on each arm and they're "sexx bracelets" and cheap plastic bracelets they think are cute from 25cent machines and stores like "CLAIRES"
-super tight jeans that go straight down (no flare)
-neon flats, those flat "stretch-like sneaker" with no laces
-surrounded by tons of clones (other "scenesters")

TYPICAL INTERESTS OF SCENE KIDS:
-robots
-dinosaurs (they often like to mimic them by saying "rawr" and "grr" ALL the time)
-ELECTRIKK lightning
-guns
-bright colors
-taking millions of themselves using "the angles"
-using photoshop to make the pictures "THE SEXX"
-myspace, myspace, and myspace. they're usually what people call "myspace whores" and they add millions of "original people" just like them and get people to add and comment them
-fingerless gloves, preferably black. (the scenesters who try really hard to be scene cut them themselves)
-the scene vegetarians and vegans are only like that because it's cool, they could care less about the animals
-they're so sxe (straight edge) and like to signify that by drawing big XXX's on their hands
-they go to tons of shows, usually in their area. most of the time they don't even know the band, they just wanna go in the pit and show off their hxc dancing and skank.
-they like using words like "hella," "hawt," and "cunt" (a lot). they type in LEET, like "WER G0IING_2 TH3 HXC ROCKSH00W &&_& TH3N G0ING 0UT 4 TACOZZ" yet they claim they hate it when people "tyPpee LyKk diSs."
-they only listen to THEIR music, any other music sucks.

Basically, scenesters are attention whores and hypocrits. they're fake and self-centered.
jenna: "HEYYY GURLLIE, me &&_andreaa r g0ing 2 tehh HXC_R0CKSH0WW lat3rr on and it would be TEHH_SEXX if u could cum && wen we M33T UP ii can sh0ww u the pictures i t00k BE4 4 MY_SPACE withh mi N3W ELECTRIKK BLUEE HIGHLITESS. ITLL BE TEHH SEXX S0 CYAA LATAA xCUNTxFACEx"

and... (&&)

laurin: "OMFGAWWDZZ N0WAYZZ, THAT NEW PIERCING IS TEH SEXX, U DID IT YRSELFF? THATSS S0 HELLA HAWTZZ OMFGS LAWLZ, SEXX ME CUNTWHORE UZ R SO SCENE"

-they basically love to be unique and have the center of attention and they love to be as "unique" as possible, (while at the same time they are making themselves a clique,)

*not to be confused with emo, although the scene and emo defining line is not completely clear*

-they often have many hair colors at one time.short and spiky on one side, and long bangs on the other side.

---trends with "scene people" right now: strange fascination with dinosaurs and saying "rawr", childrens hair bows and headbands, plastic bright colored jewlry, leggings matched with vintage skirts and old shirts, messager bands with pins on the strap, plaid pants, long bead necklaces, sayings like " he's a cool kid. "
scene person conversation--

person 1-- you are so rad
person 2-- well you are a cool kid
person 1--- well, rawr im a dinosaur how can't i be cool
person 2- *laughs*

One of the latest trend or style.
Some scene girls and boys tend to use black and short hair. They cut it themselves to make it look messy but tidy.
If they have a myspace, all they're pictures are from every possible angle. They like to take black and white pictures of themselves, too.
When they type, instead of writing "and..." they use "&&...". They love to use "gangsta" chatspeak and in their space they have at least 1 "gangsturr" picture. They usually don't use capitalization, correct grammar and periods.
Scene people use colored clothes, generally with prints saying "bang", "gun", etc. And wear tight pants, generally ragged on some parts.
They also love colored plastic pearls-made necklaces and piercings. Most of the time they like to act childish.
They like children's stuff like little girls hair accesories, dinosaurs,etc.
Some of them like to pretend being a "ninja".
Being scene means tons of make-up, specially on the eyes. Some may use the "doll" look, a white face, with red cheeks.
Check out myspace to see some scene people.

The lamest movement of anything ever. A movement of conformists for the sake of individuality. An oxymoron so wrapped up in itself that it can't even see how fake it is.
Joan: Ann, we're so scene, we should come with a warning!
Me: Get a life, please.

Like emo, just NEON

Scene kids are also generally louder than your average emo, choosing also to be vegan or straight edge because it sounds good, rather then they know what it means.
They have to be scene KIDS because, let's face it, scene GUY/CHICK/PERSON doesn't sound as good.
Can often be found wearing over priced plastic jewellery and tiny bows in the hair on girls.
Hell, the guys probably wear them too.

Don't get me wrong, i have no problem with scene kids, i'm just pissed at the one that smacked me in the face for no reason.
I'm so scene I bleed neon.

all these definitions are disgusting. why does scene have to include a million definitons of people saying that scene people are "obnoxious", "self centered", "pretentious" or "egotistic". Why must people be categorized like that?

to me: scene is a movement. it's when a group of people who happen to like similar kinds of music and fashion (and many other things)come together. Consequently scenesters like to express themselves however they want to in relationship to the music or their interests. who cares how they dress, or talk, or feel. Everyone should dress how they like, talk how they want to, and feel what ever they damn well please.

how is scene any different than any other label? Jock, prep, girly, hick... If you want to label a group, fine. But don't put down a group of people for what they like just because they "annoy" you or because you don't understand them. Maybe you annoy the fuck out of someone else but they're not rude enough to label you as a piece of shit.
"That girl is so scene, that guy is such a jock, those brothers are so preppy. They're probably all really nice. Maybe i should go introduce myself and get to know them."

People who are Scene(aka Scensters) whore themselves in everything relating to Emo and Screamo music. Scene kids try very desperatly to keep posers out of the 'scene' by giving off a distinct "I'm better than you, I'm so hardcore, you're not-go die" attitude. This attitude towards others makes them appear self-centered and obnoxious. Granted some of them aren't, the majority of scene kids are assholes. In an attempt to save their favorite bands from going "mainstream" and selling out, they act like bitches, basically. Scene kids have the same characteristics as your average hXc Emo Kid. Scene girls in particular find it necessary to whore themselves to appear hardcore and tough. They can be seen with short, choppy hair cuts, excessive amounts of eye make-up, tight band t-shirts, facial piercings, and a digital camera in their hand (because they can't go 5 minutes with taking a sexxxy photo of themselves from a weird angle to post on their MySpace to attract scene boys). They are probably the most self-centered of the scene kids and they take pride in acting like sluts and sleeping with as many Emo boys as they can.
Megan is so scene. She's hooked up with every member of Everytime I Die For Your Mom 3 times!
