The most popular definitions need to be updated a little bit. Because at this point in time october 2007 thats more like a wannabe scene kid/emo kid.
And I don't like labels too much, but come on. Don't pretend you don't do it.

I don't care what the roots are of scene, this is UrbanDictionary, and we're concerned about modern shit not going back ten years.
Scene kids are rich. Or they might not be rich, it doesn't matter. They buy exspensive shit and still look like trash.
You pay money to look like dirt when you're a scene kid. And yes, its stylish. Whether you like it or not. I really don't get why its so wonderful to look trashy.
Not all scene kids are trashy. Some of them are just Urban Outfitter whores and seem trashy, but thats just fashion and they look more like bums than trash.
And even then there's some who don't look like bums or trashy. Its a very narrow yet broad spectrum.
And thats just their clothes.
Usually a scene girls hair is long underneath and very big and layered on top. Some examples of this are Mother Fucking Aly and Amor Hilton. While Aly's hair is poofy and big on top its not like Amor's, which almost looks like a rats nest, but in a good way.
Typical scene boy hair is about shoulder length, and very smooth and shiny. Some use product, some don't, but almost all scene kids straighten their hair. And if they don't, they must have some bomb ass hair to pull of not straightening it.
Now to the most key things in a scene kids existence: their myspace. There are not a million graphics, there are no links to graphics sites; they either do it themselves or have other people do it. Very clean cut, nice and put together. Usually have comment, message and add buttons and contact table is hidden along with their extended network box, blogs, and song. Some have their friends and comments hidden, others don't. Some opt to just show their friend and comment count.
Camera phone pictures are okay as long as you're hot.
High quality picture are preffered, photoshopped or not. Medium quality are alright as long as they're highly photoshopped.
Headbands, cigarettes, brass knuckles, diamond and bat necklaces, gloomy bear, hello kitty or any other sanrio character, and recently weight lifter things are popular in pictures. Just make is scene, make it work.
If you're a girl, you are basically required to have raccoon eyes. If you don't, you better have at least some makeup on. And fake eyelashes. When you look down, it better look like a damn box. Monroe and septum piercings are ideal for you, as well as angel bites. Gauges are welcome, but too big and you just look trashy. Too small and you look like a pussy.
Boys usually will wear some form of makeup, whether its foundation or a little bit of eyeliner. Their ears better be stretched to at least 5/8 of and inch, and if they aren't they shouldn't be pierced at all. Monroe, septum, snake bites, spider bite, bridge and middle lip piercings are the best for boys. Don't do overkill though, its ugly.
And sidekicks. The Sidekick is a scene kids best friend. Now more available because of the new Sidekick iD which is much cheaper than the D-Wade SK or the SK3, a SK is key in your scene being. What would you do without being able to text David Dior at the Bring Me The Horizon concert which you go to a lot, shows are also your best friend. Useful for networking with fellow scene kids and check your MySpace on the go? Nothing, thats what.
You don't always have to be a bitch, but you must be confident. If you aren't, you are not a scene kid, and you lose at life.
YOU NEED TO KNOW PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD. Scene kids have a very wide network, and have often never even met their best friend who lives five thousand miles away. If you are a scene kid, you have a best friend in a different state or country. They'll probably never meet this person.

Another word for 'emo' or 'trendy'. What's 'in'.

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.
Girl:: I dyed my hair black and pierced my lip today. Cause I'm so scene!!!123

Guy:: I got a new studded belt and band shirt size youth small from Hot Topic today.
Another Guy:: Shh! No one is supposed to know we actually buy things from Hot Topic. The cool thing to do is to order online, so you seem trendy without actually trying to be trendy. Duh.

XxOmgshesaidwahxX: oh my god i love underoath! I can't wait to go to their show
xBleeding xHeartsx: me too! what's your favorite song?
XxOmgshesaidwahxX: I dunno! I've only heard one song.
XBleeding xHeartsx: I <3 you. You're so scene.

The "Scene" typically refers to a hardxcore or emocore subculture where fashion and physical appearance are held in higher regard than the actual music itself. So closely related to fashioncore that the two terms are interchangable in most scenarios.

The scene is a slap in the face to real musicians. The contention of the scene is that it's basically cool to be a poser.


Characteristics that scene kids usually have:
- pretend to be guitarists when all they're likely able to play are open/power/barre chords

- hair that's long in the front and short in the back (e.g. a devilock or emo hair)

- overly-tight pants. the scene guys usually wear misses size womens pants.

- overly-tight shirts with the name of the crappiest/most obscure band you can find. also wear "vintage" shirts that are bought from ebay or thrift stores (e.g. a shirt from a rolling stones concert in the 1970's while the kid wearing it was born in the 1980's).

- lots of facial piercings... gauged ears (usually 0g or more), septum piercing, double lip piercings (snake bites), labret piercing, etc.
Scene and emo need to die.

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.

-OKAY. let me say this, We're not posers of eachother. We like the same things, and thats why were "scene" and because we don't like other genres such as "gangster" "Prep" or "Emo" dosn't make us BAD ,or give you right to make our group look BAD. We don't need more hate entrys on Ubandictionary.

My makeup makes me look like a porcliean doll! I'm going to take some pictures of me making a peace sign! Ya, I love my Indie bands, And I'm so hardxcore!

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."

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."
