hmmm.. alright.... how scene turned into scene..
well
in the 1980s the punk kids got together, and thought about all this music they were writing and said basically that they were tired of regan rock and wanted to write about their girlfriends, or the troubles at home or something slightly more appealing to not only a larger crowd, would incorporate some of their life rather than presidents or celebrities into their music. This slowly turned into a more musically oriented crowd, and musical style called emo (which was brought up as a slur by the way, the producers didnt think it would hit big, so they called them emo, due to their emotive lyrics). This musical style was entertaining and had more musical talent in the songs, rather than punk which was mostly power chords and major chord progressions, which was transposed to every instrument they played in the band. As the emo popularity grew, it stemmed into a softer, even more musically motivated crowd called indie, they generally wore thick rimmed glasses, skinny jeans (not tight) old school vans, and a short bowl cut, they were looked down upon as "posers" because they couldnt back the lyrics which they wrote. Indie and emos then merged in the ninties to create yet another culture.. this music was highly computer based, used synthesizers, and sirens, and followed very closely drug and sex based lyrics (for example: pulled up at the stoplight, the drugs on the dashboard, look at the mess we made tonight. kick off your stilettos, kick off your stilettos, and fuck me in the back seat, fuck me in the back seat ~the medic droid) and thus the birth of scene. it didnt really kick off until the oughts came around, however the style is fairly general, even though every person who is in this culture likes to be unique (what teenager doesnt?). they borrowed alot of styles from the eighties, such as big thick glasses, tight pants (if your a boy) tighter pants (if your a girl) and piercings and tattoos are certainly not looked down upon. usually band tee shirts, that are usually pretty tight, and skater shoes (vans adios es dc oaisis etc.). anything neon as well, or will show up in a blacklight. indeed like all teenagers (which is where most of this whole stuff started) scenes can be arrogant, know it all, flashy, hypocritical, and a large majority of people who call themselves scene are in fact posers ( for the sake of example: say they do drugs, say they have sex every weekend, but seriously, how many teenagers do you think are rolling X and having sex every single weekend?) but this is part of going through puberty, and seriously alot of scene people are really arrogant, and posers, but then there are a majority who just sort of keep to themselves, however people tend to notice the ones who behave badly because its noticeable. I see where those people are coming from.. the ones that write rather ugly definitions for scenes and emos and punks etc., however you notice jocks and preps and cheerleaders do bad shit, and you notice scenes who do bad shit, cause no matter who you are, where you belong, what friends your going to hang out with, if your going to do bad shit, you will, and if you wont you wont. thats it.

a style that includes looking extremely rediculous to the point of being "cool".

scene kids all look the same in a way, and its an off-branch of emo.
says things like "ZOMG dats HxC" (The term HxC means hardcore, but typing it like that destroys the meaning of the word."
also, the word "br00tal" also rules their slow and extremely unwitty vocabulary. (typing the word brutal like "br00tal" also destroys the meaning of the word. its like shooting yourself in the dick to get rid of a boner.)

they seem to be attracted to bright coulours, things with polka-dots, stripes, young children's characters(e.g. spongebob, dora the explorer), or stupid patterns.

usually have choppy, multi-coloured hair and obsess over shitty bands like metro station and MSI, depending on the scene "type."

scene is usually an off-branch of emo, but can also be many other things.

1. scenemo - noobs with bullet for my valentine shirts and dumb checkered headbands.

2. scenenig - black scenesters based on rap, hip-hop, ect. and have bright coloured shoes, tupac shirts, and studded belts.

"scene" can mean many different things, but isnt nessicarially a derogatory term.
put simply, scene is a synonym with "retarded".
emo, noob, bitch, retard, neeegro, hxc, zomg, hai, scene, scenester

There is no 'scene'.

Scene is made-up wonderland where pretentious fucknuts boast their underground music cred while wasting money on quasi-vintage clothing when they could've used it to further their college education and done something useful with their lives.
See that kid, unwashed and trying to make up for his complete lack of personality with five pounds of eyeliner? That's fucking scene.

Scene does not always mean you are a total arrogant stuck up little girl who loves dinosaurs and has a myspace.

Scene use to be the music scene, the people in it, and everything that had to do with it.

Now scene has become this little plate of girls putting their hair in a sidepart, wearing polka dots, and loving guns. This is very annoying and they pretty much ruin everything.

Just because you have a myspace does not mean you love guns or you're some elitist scene kid.

In fact, most people defining scene here are moreso defining electrikk.
"LYKE OMGZ I LOVE DINOSAURS BECAUSE I'M SO EFFIN SCENE!!!11"

Life in the wonderful world of the unique scene kids of the country.

The typical scene boy:
Hi, I'm a fucking moron. You can certaintly find me on myspace. You’ll recognize me and my kind because my display name is namexcorexxx, or it has a huge word following my name, but I have no idea what it means, it just looks cool. I'm straight edge, when I feel like it. It totally depends on who I hang out with and what they are, cause god forbid I think for myself. I have no self esteem, I act like I do, but I'm crying on the inside. I have really nice unique hair. It's long in the front, to cover up my insecurities, but its short in the back, so i still have a little bit of masculinity. I shop at PacSun and other places that sell Tilt’s girls jeans I own numerous pairs but only wear 1, they have to be tight on my matchstick body, I love the feeling of my balls pressed up tight against my inner thigh. I try to look like a girl as much as I can without going under the knife. I don't eat meat, cause fall out boy says not to, but I love underage drinking and making out with other guys that look more like girls than I do. I have a girlfriend, but only so my parents don’t think im gay. I go to hardxcore shows and dance like I'm having a seizure or have parkinsons. I make a complete fool out of myself to try to get attention, even though I fail miserably. Sometimes I pay money to go to a club but i sit outside and bum cigs and smoke them hoping it makes me look cool. I really have no personality; I just do what my friends do, even though they feel the same way. I guess we're jst one giant group of estrogen and insecurities. I watch fuse to see what the latest scene bands are, so i can steal my dads money and run to FYE or hot topic and buy their extremely over priced CD. But trust me, I'm not like anyone. I swear.

The typical scene girl:
Hi, I'm 14 years old and am "sXe" For lifeone!!1one!1! I basically wear either short denim skirts with leg warmers underneath, spandex pants and a long dress like shirt that shows my vagina, or some crapily sewn hand me down jeans, & some shirt I got from a thift store, or urban outfitters. My hair is atleast 2 unatural hair colors, and is straigned almost to the point of death. If any of my friends see me with curly hair they wont accept me! My hair used to be long and cover my face, but I tried cutting it all scene and it ended up so short, so I scrunched it up, and threw on some hair dye and called it scene hair. I LOVE my fingerless gloves I got at hot topic for twenty dollars. No one else has them, except my friends, that’s what makes us, unique!! Along with all of our cute braclets we made from crappy beads we stole from our little sisters. I pierce my lip because it makes me look unique. I am a nonconformist, I do what I want, as long as fall out boy and atreyu and underoath approve of it. Also, if sonny moore wouldn't or hasn't done it, it must not be cool, so I can't do it either. I love Panic! at the disco too cause they don't sound like anyone else except for fall out boy, thursday, thrice, finch, and all those other awesome unique bands! my myspace says how I don't care what you think, But I'll dress however and do whatever to make you like me. So please don't break my brittle heart. But really, I'm so unique and different. I just do whatever my friends do
hoping that someday, someone will give a shit about me and my personality. No wait, I don't have one.

1) gloves are for bums that use old napkins & newspapers as sheets.
2) Peircings, extremely different, you know only ½ the population has some piercing besides earings.
3) Clearly lying, being fake, ranging from ages 13-18
4) kill me now

I Don't know whats more pathetic. Making a 10 minute movie on how to be scene, or me actually watching it. And it wasnt funny at all, cause they were being serious.

A lot of these definitions are wrong. You're describing something called electrikk, a dumb new fad.
This is what I think is scene (well, in the UK):

TYPICAL SCENE GIRL

- Hair extensions, usually black, blonde, dark brown or a range of vibrant colours.
- Excessive make-up, mostly thick black eyeliner and/or brightly coloured eyeshadow (usually MAC).
- Fake eyelashes.
- A lot of piercings, popular ones being snakebite, septum and monroe.
- "Retro" or "vintage" clothes (plaid shirts, tight/fitted jeans, band shirts, polka dot dresses, ect.).
- Forced cockney/common accent (popular words include 'mate', 'well' and 'lush').
- Obsessive use of the words 'cunt', 'yr' and 'tbh'.
- Myspace or LiveJournal is a must.
- Sometimes posts pictures of themselves half-naked to get attention/comments
- Claims that they're in love with photography. The nearest they get to it is taking a million pictures of themself at weird angles and photoshopping it to within an inch of it's life.
- ECT.

You'll find that most of these people are completely fake.
Most of them don't have a cockney accent in real life.
Most of them don't obsessively use the word 'cunt' in real life.
It's all an act to show off how many friends and comments they can get on Myspace.
"sup cunts. capitals are so gay. my fake hair and eyelashes are SO scene tbh. i'm so original with my rainbow make-up and 7346764 piercings!
tbh photography is lush, even though all i do is take pictures of myself. i'm well good at editing my pictures though!
i need to stop hitting the contrast button and pull up my shirt tbh!"

They're EVERYWHERE.
