The coolest, most dark and mysterious group of kids in high school. Scene kids are totally unique because:

1.) Music. their musical tastes are totally deeper than yours. scene kids don't just listen to chiodos and underoath anymore, they now enjoy lil' wayne and girl talk!

2.) Haircuts. their haircuts are omg fab, held together by super strength hair wax, hair spray, or sometimes gel (all in mass amounts). the preferred styling method is to put a shitload of wax on the back of their head before bedtime, making it super messy and xcore (WARNING: this causes scenester-pillowcase syndrome). When they wake up for high school, they then apply massive amounts of product in the front to make it flat and pushed all in one direction. the great thing about scene haircuts: they're unisex!

3.) Hair Dye. along with the cool do's, scenesters also are totally individuals and non-conformists because of their hair dye patterns. in order to be truly scene, your hair must consist of 2 or more colors, one of them being a hue that doesn't occur in nature. Black is chosen by most as their naturally-occurring color, the other may be blue, bloodfrommywrists-red, green, or my personal favorite, purple (makes me think of grape jolly ranchers!)

4.) Piercings. emo/scene kids love 'em, mostly in places they'll regret when they are 25 and in the job market. Sorry xhatemylifex, but you'll never get hired with 3 nose piercings, 4 lip piercings, and an eyebrow ring. not even at starbucks.

5.) Cigarettes. Scene kids start once they find out they're scene. in getting started on the cancer sticks, they use the stereotypical "i'm cool for smoking" excuse to justify it to themselves. Many scene kids don't actually inhale their cigarettes, as they are in the 13-14 year old range and don't know how to properly smoke yet.

6.) Clothes. this is one of my fav's. the scenester wardrobe is as unisex as the haircut. t-shirts must be 2 sizes too small; the typical 5'8" 150 lb. male wears an XS tee (as to expose his midriff) of his favorite band, perhaps the rocket summer. pants must be GIRLS jeans (tight men's jeans are not acceptable) with key rings hanging from the beltloops, and rips and tears in the knee and thigh area. once again, pants must be 2 sizes too small, as to minimize mobility of the legs and maximize how much of their belly hangs over the waistline.

7.) Mannerisms. Scenesters usually don't allow for much fluctuation of the voice, as to not show any happy emotions they may have. Others: looking down, flipping their hair, adjusting their pants, checking myspace religiously, and putting an x before and after every word they use. it's the hardxcorex thing to xdo.

8.) Myspace. all the scenesters got 'em. All photos are self-taken from an awkward angle, as to show any cleavage they might have in junior high/high school, or to show that they're just plain good at aiming without looking at their digital camera's screen.


All in all, these factors make scenesters the most respected group of people in their high school.


NOTE: You can consider this a confession of a former-scenester. I'm guilty of all the above, except piercings/hair styles.

Though most of the content is true, let's be honest; most scene kids get to a point where they realize what they are doing is ridiculous. Those that don't just end up getting pointed and laughed at (rightfully so). If you're gonna do the scene style, why don't you just go all-out and cross dress?
1: Hey, did you see Connor's new scene wardrobe on myspace?

2: yeah, Connor is so scene; i love his lip ring and mudd jeans. my sister has the same jeans.

1: awesome! what kind of hair wax did he use for that cool do?

2: not too sure... (drags cigarette without inhaling)... what's his screen name again so i can tell him how sweet and ghetto his new gear is?

1: i think its xxbleedingmakesbloodxx, but it might be xwilldiexforyoux.

2: so scene...

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

Obsessed with:

Robots
Dinosaurs
Being a bandit
Being a gangsta
Ebonics
Arizona Ice Tea
Bands with annoyingly long names like "A Burst of Pain Ignites My Heart With Eternal Agony"
<3 instead of saying "I love you"
iPod
Synthesizers
Keyboards
Oversized sunglass or aviator's glasses
Myspace
Andy Warhol
The word HEART, spelled like that
Hollywood Undead
Indie movies
Spelling some words completely and abbreviating others
An example of a scene kid conversation on AIM:

XxHEARTattackxX: werd.well i gotsta go.latta.
asXmyXHEARTXbleeds: kbye.
a 'label', just like any other, for guys&&girls with shorter/choppier&& darker hair than others. They usually are the people with piercings or tatoos or the people you see hanging around waiting for a show to start. People tend to make fun of the 'scene' guys by calling them fags,gay,or anyother offensive term because of their style. (i.e wearing tight girl pants) they also make fun of them for trying to be different but still ending up exactly the same as they're friends when in all actuality no one is going to be different or an individual than everyone else. chances are there's someone exactly like you out there. being scene is a label. and anyone who labels others is contradicting themselves.
being scene, emo, hardcore, preppy, skater. they're all labels.

Scene kids are posers that have no real identity so they have to label themselves and pretend they know who they are. They are the people that deserve to get beat up at shows. They are polluting the scene. Goddam scenexfags!
Hey i'm scene look at my dumbass hair and my stupid fingerless gloves! isn't my retard bandana hanging out my back pocket so hawt? i just went to the mall and got me a new pair of pumas (lisp). i'm such a poser, i don't even know why i go to shows, i don't even like the music, i just want to show off my tight pants. i just want people to think i'm cool cuz i'm so insecure. the only people that don't know that i'm fake are the other scene faggots.

The only group of people in the world that would post pictures of themselves on urbandictionary.com
See emo.

scenesters take pictures of themselves at seventy degree angles with a third of thier face covered with dyed black hair. Then post it on the net (see Or www.myspace.com) so thier friends can add comments like "Oh, seksiful.." or "Your sooooo purdy.."
Scene Kid: I got the new 'All over in thirty seconds' album...
Me: Who?
Scene Kid: You won't have heard of them. I only ever listen to bands people havn't heard of, even though I don't the music that much...
Me: Why?
Scene Kid: Kos I'm scene and kooler than you. <3

1. Complete Antithesis of Individuality.
2. One who complies to the current trend, that is, hardcore music, crazy ass make up, men wearing womens clothing, nautical star tattooes, black hair with a big fucking blonde streak, typical vans slip on checkered shoes, converse chuck taylors, black rimmed glasses, huge ass earring, large plugs, band shirts, chains, layers of clothing that doesn't match, old sweaters with holes in them that look as if they were plucked from the inner dwellings of a wino...

3. Often stench of old perfume, plus a combonation of other peoples sweat and old hair grease from not taking a shower.

4. Talks about music to the extent that you want to beat them over the head with their favortie Fender Strat signed by the whole band The Chariot...
1. Dude, did you see that hXc show last night, it was soooo fucking rad.

I totally "hearted" their set...

Dude we should totally get a life, we are so scene...

Another excuse for attention whores to post pictures of themselves on this website.
Thanks to definitions like emo and scene, Urbandictionary.com is gaining a secondary function as a substitute for Myspace.

Scene kids wear tight jeans, band T-Shirts like Escape The Fate or My Chemical Romance. They wear converse or checkered vans, hair that is parted to one side covering one eye(normally black or really light blonde) belts with studs in them(normally white). Scene kids are NOT emo but have basically adopted the emo style without taking the whole (OMG my life is so horrible /cry nobody loves me /cuts wrist) type of bullshit.
Scene Kid - dude aren't my tight jeans, checkered vans, and Escape the Fate Tshirt so cool.
