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...

a bunch of people, many of whom are actually adults, who are more into the ideas of being in bands, knowing lyrics, being friends with people in bands, and drawing attention to themselves rather than actual music itself.
so glad i avoided getting sucked into the scene at a young age

See also emo or emo kid.
Labels are for soup cans!
by Goffboy's Dictionary on Life June 28, 2005
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.

Ew look at her septum it has boogers on it, what a failure scene kid.
Yeah I know. And her monroe has scabs around it.
Ew. What a dirty.

See homo, fag, gay or poser. At certain times certain things become cool in high school, but how could have pretending to be depressed 24/7 become popular? I have depression and I don\'t call myself a scene and take gay angle shots of my depressed face and write some stupid shit as a subtitle. Be yourself people... *sigh*
Emos think they\'re \"cool\" now. I wonder how stupid theyre gonna feel about their \"phase\" when theyre in their mid twenties. There are way too many emo pics on Stay in the closet, you ugly, acne ridden confused twats.
