The term, "scene," is used in several ways.

1. Another word for "subculture" that doesn't sound quite so scientific, allowing it to be used in daily conversation. Used this way it usually has an adjective modifying it: the "indy scene" or the "hardcore scene" or the "emo scene." When someone refers to a particular "scene," they're talking about everything - the people, the places, the fashion, the music, and the trends.

2. A tongue-in-cheek reference to the trends and fashions of the various scenes. Many of these subcultures were built around countercultural ideals and nonconformist attitudes; the fact that trends even exist is humorous irony, and using "scene" as an adjective originally intended to lampoon that.

3. A trend of sorts that evolved from the indy, emo, and hardcore scenes (see the first definition); basically, anything that can be sold at Hot Topic. As events like Warped Tour - and artists like Avril Lavigne - became popular, the trends and fashions of these three scenes (and a few others) were gradually amalgamized and commericalized to create the generic "scene" monkier. Someone who is "scene" generally borrows from the various subcultures and combines them together - you can tell they're part of *a* scene, but no one is quite sure *what* scene. It is important to note that this use of "scene" refers to a fashion trend - it isn't a subculture in its own right, because it has no music, venues, or attitudes of its own to live on after it loses popularity.

4. An ironic insult toward followers of the "scene" trend outlined in 3. Calling someone "scene" brings up images of Avril Lavigne, Hot Topic, Good Charlotte, and, more recently, Myspace; it implies that he or she is a fair-weather fan, conforming to be popular or to fit in. In that sense, it is related to the term poseur. It also implies being more worried about the more visible icons of a particular scene (the fashion and language, for example) than the music that the scene is founded on. Calling someone a scenester basically means the same thing.
1. Atreyu is a relative newcomer to the hardcore scene, but is developing a rabid cult fanbase.

2. Wow... a Thundercats shirt, crotch-hugging faded jeans, and a devilock... how very scene of you. Not to mention your ratty Converse shoes or your Know Your Mushrooms armband.

3. Be more scene. Shop at Hot Topic.

4. Enjoy being scene while it lasts, because Myspace isn't enough to keep it going once the next fad hits.

scene is about...

(1)becoming anorexic so you can fit into your size 00 abercrombie jeans....

(2)seeing how many colors you can dye your hair before you look like a slogan for gay pride...

(3)dancing like a retard getting chased by a swarm of bees....

(4)listening to screaming whiney bands where you cant even understand the words because the band sucks...

(5)going to as many whiney shows as possible to show off all your peircings, your multi-colored scene hair, and show off how "hip" you are... as if anyone cares?

(6)buying clothes that dont fit right to show off your anorexia (but of course you dont tell other anorexics that! you're naturally skinny!)

(7)getting so many peircings you look like fucking frankenstein
whiney scenester: ok so i have my hair dyed black, with random spots of pink, purple, yellow, and red. just got my lip peirced (snake bites) along with my already peirced eyebrow, nose, and tongue. finally i have my outfit all picked out: size 00 jeans from hollister, size XS chariot shirt (because they're so SxC), vans with the squares, and black eyeliner...

ok im ready for the show tonight!
now lets go take some cool myspace pix then leave a bulletin before the show.

Scene-a new term for "emo" the emo fucks realized that emo was getting old, so the changed the name to scene, and mixed in a bit of gangster style. They like to go by the term of "scenester"
Kid: Dude, you're soo emo
Scenster: Yo my homie, I am not emo, I'm a scene scenster.

Any group of teenagers with, but not limited too, having choppy short black hair, with one rather odd looking bleached-blonde streak in their emo sweep (side swept bangs), or obnoxiosly long, think bleach blond hair with one random black highlight, also with an emo sweep, these teenagers, if female, are often seen wearing guys jeans, bright colored band ts, polka dots, vans slip-ons, and childish barrets, and if male, clothing that is obnoxiosly tight on them, band ts, girls jeans, and converse chuck taylors. These teenagers are often seen hanging out at local teen clubs listening to there favorite local band that they know nothing of, the just go to go, they try to act cool by hardcore dancing or jumping around like little twats taking pictures of themselves with "sex"written all over there fingers. Teenagers of this nature are also marked by, but not limited to: Nose Peircings, Naval Peircings, Monroes, Multiple Ear Peircings, Eyebrow Peircings, Bridge Peircings, and nape peircings.
Lola was so scene with her jet black hair and her monroe peircing.

scene just basically means your a snobby bitch that think you're non conforming when really your just like every one in the "scene". You go to hardcore shows and dance even though scene guys suposedly hate it when girls are in the pit, but since your scene and all and you dont give a damn you do it anyways. in my opion scene kids are just little wannabes who go to local shows and think they are so"cute kidie" or "rad nigg" because they have heard of little kid stuff.
heres your scene kid

-choppy layered hair with side bangs
-normally random patches of light brown or light blonde to make it look like someone shit in your hair
-septum rings and lip rings of any kind
-bright colors with flats and tight jeans
-little kid themed clothes
-headbands sunglasses colored pearls or hair bows
-likes hardXcore stuff cuz they are so SCENE
-with the million and ten "pics" they take the tag for them is--OH SO SCENE--tough girlXcore--or SCENE bitches
-normally adds Xcore to anything they say
-thinks they are better than anyone unscene
-has a livejournal to be cool not to write in
-crams words together
-scene girls normally wear tons of eyeliner
-oh BTW they like guns--bang--cunt--stab

The current trend the new emo? where girls and boys look the same and usually almost certainly have the same hairstyle usually choppy, messy and black
They think they are original but are just clones of each other.
Myspace is an essential.
Scene kids think typing in CAPS is oh so 'sceneXcore.
They use words like innit, buff and will without a doubt love From first to last. NO not because of they're music. Because of Sonny moore.

They add Xcore to all their words.
And often use the terms,

OH AND! you can't forget the crazy assed angeled pictures, plastered all over myspace.

Scenesters like things ranging from polka dots, to robots and dinosaurs, to beads and hair bows.

Most of them are pretentious little cunts.

1. (adj.) Used to refer to bunch of losers, who progressively destroyed the cultural label of goth, and then moved on to the next fad, which is SCENE. (See Real Goth for clarification of what the term "Gothic" meant before Scene kids took it over several years ago.)
2. (adj.) Drama whores, attention whores, whiners, losers, and posers that like to pretend they're cool and/ or nonchalant. Fashion victims that like to pretend they're unique. Wimps who like to pretend that they're badass. (See also; hypocrite.)
3. (adj.) Used as an adjective by scene kids to describe anything they think is cool, AKA, anything that the rest of the world thinks is utterly moronic, pointless, and tiresome.
1. After the dregs of teenage society whored out the term "goth" for a while, they came up with a newer term called "scene", which still meant "loser", but shocked and/ or confused their parents more.
2. Scene kid: "I wish I were scene enough to pretend I wasn't scene! T_T"
3. Scene Kid Tippy: Oh em GEE! I lurve your new HAIR and it's black chaos!
Scene Kid Sarah: I no! It is totally teh scene.
Sarah's Older Sister: Christ, Sarah, did you get your head caught in the fuckin' weed eater?
