Person between the ages of 14 and 21 who decides that they will be incredibly original and cute and popular by making a Myspace account, adding fellow scene kids, and generally making oneself out to be cool and superior.

How to spot:
-MUST have a Myspace account
-Mentions guns, babies, dinosaurs, robots, indie bands, techno bands, any obscure band they can find, being "gangsta", getting drunk, skulls, chucks, vans, the letter X, the ampersand, internet hearts <3, etc.
-Talks condescendingly
-Often partakes in music elitism
-Takes photos of self in mirror, in car, in sunglasses, from above, of boobs, of hips, of feet, of self drinking alcohol, of self making kissy face, of self looking like a hyperactive toddler, of self doing illegal things, of self passed out, of self and friends joined at the head and making faces
-Uses small fonts, overlapping fonts, pink, white and black
-Has friends take photos of themselves holding signs which say "I <3 NAME!!1 OMGZ. KTHXBAI"
-Uses chatspeak sarcastically
-Parties often and talks about it on Myspace
-Hates the world while desperately seeking its attention
-Uses MS Paint to draw little hearts in the corner of everything

Scene kids can be catty and obnoxious, so it's best to avoid them. They often become wrapped up in internet popularity and begin to become the trendy persona they've created on their website. They are fake through and through, and therefore untrustworthy.

Kids that follow fashions to the raw detail.
Past fashions that have been followed are:
the letter x
being bisexual while stating not to be following a trend
admitting to being straight, therefore not following a trend
pretending to be gay to impress members of the opposite sex
thrashing one's self around at shows, putting other show-goers in danger of being hit in the face by flailing arms and legs and calling it hardcore dancing
dying hair completely black
bleaching random parts of hair
making unflattering "rawr" faces

Scenesters will say things such as "rad", "guns go bang", "sex" and "the sex".

They will pretend to be completely original even though most of their friends will look the same.
"That oddly placed blonde patch on the side of your head is just pure sex!"
"Sonny Moore is just so rad"
"Rawr! I'm a rad wannabe DiNoSaUr scenester with an eye patch and robotic limbs!"

Scenesters encapsulate the sub-culture of a particular musical genre. One heavily relies on aesthetics and sartorial image to signify adherence to a particular scene. Scenesters of the post-modern era heavily rely on pastiche, imitation and revival. For scenesters, fashion is the most obvious sign of adherence to a sub-culture or musical genre. The history of the scenester image is rather rich. Perhaps more strongly for some and less for others, the scenester image encompasses not only the evolution of 20th century music, but also the deeper, underlying sociological change in culture and humanity by the inevitable force of globalisation and technological change. Scenesters are not only those who enjoy certain genres of music with the company of their common peers. The decadent scenester image is also attributed by the hedonistic lifestyles embraced by disillusioned individuals in response to political and cultural conflict and change, circa 60-80s. Scenesters are often labelled today as pretentious and self righteous. Central to the scenester image is the culture of elitism. This has caused the subjugation of various scenesters to mockery, critique and hatred. Different scenes follow by their often beliefs and principles, which conflict with other scenes or mainstream culture. Scenes gives individuals a sense of belonging to a clique. In western society today, the scenester image has been quickly adopted and marketed by corporations to sell and accumulate monetary profit. Some see this as the disintregration of the scenester image, as much of it is too brutally contrived by the consuming masses, absent of understanding or meaning.

Phony kids claiming to be apart of a scene. They lack the sincereity and will change when the trend is gone.
