In a post-modern, 21st century society, young people (though more specifically those entangled in the sheep-like, doppelganger-esque dimension of popular "youth culture") adhere to a supposedly "non-conformist", free thinking and liberated way of life, which often manifests itself - most predictably - through tastes in both music and fashion related arenas.
More recently in the new millennia, "Scene kids" (or "cool kid wastrels" as I like to think of them) exemplify this inherently boring, self-important, sheep-like, doppelganger-esque, stylistic postmodernity that has been rife throughout the long and tediously dull history of the forever vacuous "popular youth culture" virus of modern times. Many suffers will try desperately hard not to conform to any type of social norm, be it grammatically (see ironically friendless bebo network users for vomit stifling examples of //graMM&tical x. n0n conf0rmitty or through their pathological obsession with an emotionally bipolar variation of self pity, self love and unremorseless yammerings about some obscure nu rave German techno they've discovered whilst masturbating ferociously over a old spaghetti stained copy of NME.
The majority of "scene kids" genuinely subscribe to the flawed notion that a) they are infact "cool", unique and/or "non-conformist" in any such a way, and b) that anyone cares about anything they ever like, do or say. No amount of obscure, avantguard pretentiousness or protestation will ever change that fact.
Whilst one would hope that systematic evolution changes these lesser individuals for the better, it is perhaps more likely that the effects of Social Darwinism will be the their eventual downfall.
