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...

You are a unique and beautiful snowflake. Just like everybody else. You are a scene kid.

I don't actually know of any scene kids that talk like 'yEw aRe lyKE s0 hAwt <3XXX' as some examples have shown. From my experience of knowing/seeing scene kids (London is overpopulated with them), here are some basic How To Be A Scene Kid guidelines that you must follow in order to be defined as 'Scene':

THE CLOTHES/FOOTWEAR
1. Wear black drainpipe jeans (guys or girls) the lower slung the better
2. Ensure they show off your hipbones and the waistband of your boxers/girlboxers
3. Team your drainpipes with cutesey 'Punkrose' shoes or ballet shoes/converse/pink and black chequered vans (for girls) and Nike Dunks/chequered Vans slip ons/converse (for guys)
4. Wear youth/medium band t shirts (guys and girls) remember, the tighter the better!
5. Alternatively, girls may choose to wear short denim skirts over cut off black leggins with ballet shoes/converse
6. Ladies, team your kiddie tee with a long string of white pearls
7. Guys may choose to wear a bandana (or two?) either around their neck (or covering their mouth for a myspace picture) or alternatively tied around their wrist
8. In the colder weather, scene kids may choose to wear a youth/medium black band hoodie with their outfit, again the smaller the better!
9. These seem to be the most popular choices of clothing for London Scene kids, however naturally there will be variations.

THE HAIR
10. BOYS - it's all about the fringe that covers one eye. Scene hair tends to be black (often dyed) or dark brown with blonde bits or red bits or whatever coloured bits are scene at the time. So yes, the front tends to be nice and long and side swept and straightened and the back tends to be spiked up a little bit. Many scene boys opt for the 'messy' look aided with lots and lots of hair products. Some scene boys like to cut their hair themselves to give it that extra choppy look.
GIRLS - Girls tend to opt for the mullet look; extra short choppy layers at the top with long messy hair extensions down to their waist or whatever length they desire (although some scene girls are clever and grow the long bits themselves..well done!) Girls hair tends to be dark brown/black with sections bleached blonde. Like scene guys, scene girls like the messy 'fresh out of bed' look, again aided by mass amounts of hairspray and products.
A popular hair accessory for a scene girl is a bow or headband, which are mostly purchased from Claires Accessories (I have seen a certain pink bow in Claires on about fifty different scene girls..or maybe they were the same girl? Hard to tell..:P)

THE MYSPACE
11. yes, owning a Myspace account is ESSENTIAL. the layout of the myspace profile is up to the user, but most incorporate mass amounts of HTML
12. Stuck on what to write? Most scene kid myspace profiles involve the lines "my friends are better than yours" "i have the best friends in the world" "i smoke and drink too much" "i love to go to shows" "i want to leave this town" "kthnx" among other things
13. Stuck for a myspace name? Scene kids often use their own names written in capital letters, teamed with spaces and exclamation marks "H O L L Y !" and more often than not these names will be 'trademarked' or 'copyrighted' because of course they are incredibly original and must not be copied.
14. Scene kids always post pictures of their amazing friends on their profile, just to support their claim that their friends are better than ours.

THE MYSPACE PHOTOS!
15. Okay you are not a certified scene kid until you have myspace photos. Myspace photos are more often than not photoshopped to death and highly contrasted/very bright to hide the many flaws scene kids have (beneath their many layers of foundation and eye makeup, obviously) Most myspace photos are taken from above (holding the camera above you aimed down at you so you have a birdseye view of your messy hair, youth/medium tee, hipbones jutting out of the top of your tight jeans, and whatever shoes you happen to be wearing for the photograph)
16. Scene girls should always pout for photographs
17. Scene boys should snarl or growl for photographs
18. Hardcore scene girls should snarl or growl for photographs
19. Partially hide your face with your mass amount of hair
20. Some scene kids like to do 'cool' things like photograph themselves snorting cocaine. Whatever floats their boat.
21. Don't forget to add that Oh so Scene caption! "no photoshop, kthnx!"

THE MAKEUP
22. This section is not just for scene girls!
23. Scene boys and girls like to apply mass amounts of eyeliner..it is essential. Scene kids do not leave the house without it, and when applied you must ensure you apply as much of the stuff as your eyelids can support. Ditto with eyeshadow.
24. Scene girls like to cover their faces with foundation (for the oh so cool -not- "deadgirl" scene girl look, opt for a white foundation) and some scene girls finish their look with a sweep of blusher to compliment the 6 inches of pink eyeshadow weighing down their eyelids. How pretty!
25. Some Scene kids, usually of the "dead variety" like to apply concealer to their lips. Dead attractive.

THE MUSIC
26. This varies. Scene kids like to say they listen to hardcore, but nobody bats an eyelid when their profile song is 'Son of Dork - Ticket Outta Loserville'
27. Most Scene girls love McFLY and go to their shows (this is understandable, McFLY are hot)
28. Most Scene girls love Dougie from McFLY more than you do.
29. Scene Kids go to shows-a-plenty because they are hardcore gig goers by nature. Whether they go to watch the band or to flaunt their sceneness and scope fit scene kids with fringes is an entirely different matter altogether..

WHERE TO FIND A SCENE KID
30. Soho Square
31. H&M (they love it and buy all their clothes from there)
32. TopShop
33. Camden
34. Shows. In the queue, alongside the queue, you're bound to find many a scene kid hugging one another or standing with inverted feet and their hands in their pockets, or standing in a huddle holding a digital camera above their heads, posing for that photograph that will no doubt be photoshopped the second its on their PC and uploaded to MySpace to be commented by the Scene Kids enormous list of 'friends'!

THE LANGUAGE
35. Scene Kids like to say "kthnx". Deal with it.
36. Scene Kids also like to say "Deal with it". Kthnx.
37. "Allow"
38. "Jokes!"
39. "Bare"
40. OMGZZZ
41. Scene Kids often like to misuse the semi colon. "HI;My names W H A T E V E R !" (trademarked, naturally)
42. They also like to overuse exclamation mark and throw in some '1's and maybe even some 'ones', cos it's cool!!1!1!!one
43. "Safe"
44. "plz"

SCENE KIDS LIKE:
45. Dinosaurs
46. Robots!!1!!
47. Their amazing friends
48. digital cameras
49. shows
50. hardcore
51. art & photography
52. drainpipes
53. drinking and smoking
54. kissing in the rain

SCENE KIDS DON'T LIKE
55. Scene Kids
56. Random Adds
57. People asking them how they are
58. Anyone outside of their amazing group of friends

SCENE KIDS WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
59. A bf/gf plz?

SCENE KID MYTH
60. Not all scene kids are straight-edge. Most smoke like chimneys to be fair.

TO ENSURE MAXIMUM SCENE-NESS
61. Get pierced! Girls - monroe, snakebite, septum, excessive ear piercings, its all good! Guys - septum, snakebite, stretched ears, eyebrow, backs of necks, surface piercings, its all good!
62. Get tattood! Anything goes, especially stars. Scene Girls like their lower backs, hipbones, feet and ankles tattood, whereas guys opt for sleeves/half sleeves and across their chests.
63. Don't forget to mention what tattoos/piercings you have on your myspace profile!!1!
64. Swear excessively

I guess that pretty much covers How To Be A Scene Kid. Once you've read and followed every single step to the letter, don't forget to take a picture of your newly transformed self (see 'THE MYSPACE PHOTO!') and upload to your Myspace account (after photoshopping, of course). Expect loads of comments saying how "buff" and "pretty" && lush you are, just don't expect anybody to recognise you at a show because to be fair, you all look the same. Kthnxbye xox

1. a stage setting b : a real or imaginary prospect suggesting a stage setting

2.3 : the place of an occurrence or action
I actually don't know why there is such a a problem with the scene though. For as long as anyone can remember there have always been scenes, whatever you listened to, what ever your political view points were, you fit into a scene. Whether it be democrats and republicans, or rap kids and emo kids...

It is terribly ashame that anything that is cracking the mold of normalcy could easily be swayed as "gay" or "stupid"...

Yes I will admit, most "scene" kids do all look alike...but so do most punk, pop princesses and rappers...

the "scene" is not a new fad, its just one that needs to be excepted just as everything and everyone else has...

Hair: Choppy , usually black and/or blonde. Fake extensions obligatory if you're female. Oh, and make sure they don't match the rest of your fucking hair.

Girls: tight pants, polka dot shirts, bows, and those ugly slip-on flat mom shoes in some kind of pattern you wouldn't even want as wallpaper.

Boys: pants so tight they cause sterility, band t-shirts, and some annoying color of converse. Sometimes they like to say they're skaters and carry around a skateboard to make themselves seem like they're more than just vanity. We all know this is a lie. Also, sometimes it's BMX, etc.

Fashion: High. But only in price. Ugly pastels and fucked up floral patterns galore. Thunderbolts, dinosaurs, robots, diamond encrusted brass knuckles (or just plain diamonds), cupcakes, and broken hearts are all a key basis for the scene imagery. Scene bitches are no different than the ordinary stuck-up, preppy, taking daddy's credit card for a joyride at the mall female money vacuum.

Urban Dictionary: Anyone who didn't get past the first few paragraphs without giving the submission a thumbs-down.

Music: None. They either think they're too good for music, or they say they listen to indie, 'dancepunk', or electronica...but it's always no more than a ploy to seem alternative. Most cannot understand music enough to have any viable input or taste (hence why we keep seeing this steady propagation of ridiculous genre names). Like many others, they feel their interests are an extension of themselves and therefore only advertise what they are sure others will praise.

Language: Some talk like the ghetto cliche, others talk like any other illiterate asshole, and very few who type properly do it for reasons other than the fact they want to look smart or superior. Elongated consonants added to the endings of words is often used. They're almost always Myspace whores and put the number of the friends they have in their username.

Summary: Like any other teenager, they're stupid, naive, and ignorant. Like any other teenager, very few grow out of it, especially those in the scene due to the relentless addiction to materialism and consumerism. But the latter addictions can also be applied most relevantly to those of the 'ghetto' and 'prep' clichés. In fact, there really is no barrier between any of the stereotypes because they're all based around the same shit. Like this music, wear these clothes, think this way, the only reason the scene is such a plague is because of it's blatant popularity. But it's the popularity that brings out the idiocy of the masses. The scene kids may be stupid, but so is anyone else who follows a trend or lives only for the social acceptance of a particular sect of society.
Many scene people post pictures up on Myspace and give it a caption like 'eww' or 'I'm so uglyyyyy'.

The basic format of a scene Myspace name is:
(First name here)(alliteration to first name here)(Trademark sign)(friendlist number (X.Xk format) here)(symbol of heart or other here)

Example: Katie Kaos™ 3.7k<3

1)the word "scene" can refer to anyone who's into a particular type of music, usually emo, screamo, hardcore, metal, maybe indie, or punk of some sort, and the "scene" around it.
It is often used to refer to kids, mostly between the age range of 14 and 24, who listen to these types of music. Stereotypically, these kids have short often dark hair, often chopped up or hanging around their faces. They tend to go to a lot of concerts and listen to their favorite bands a lot. They often listen to small, obscure, or local bands no one else has ever heard of. They may also maintain a myspace where they often will post pictures of themselves. This whole movement used to be counter-culturish but now has become mainstream to a point. Some people tend to make unfair judgements about scene people, and while some of them could very well be jerks the majority of them probably aren't.
2) the culture and group of people surrounding a style of music
1) That kid goes to a lot of concerts. He's definitely scene.
2) The punk rock scene has gotten kinda stale lately. Too many of these bands sound the same.

1. Any cultural or subcultural grouping such as the "skate scene," the "jock scene," the "punk scene," etc. Most recently, those who have become part of the sad, false genre known as "emo," have become so embarassed about themselves that they have adopted the word "scene" or "scene kid" in a pathetic attempt to mask their involvement in the most unoriginal trend ever to infect music and fashion. Most emo clones who call themselves scene kids tend to be older; an emo clone with a driver's license.
I am not an emo kid, even though I look like every other emo kid and listen to emo bands, I am a scene kid so stop making fun of me...I have a driver's license and everything!
