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.

a derrogatory term often used by hardcore, straightedge or rock band members to describe the people who go to rock concerts or hang out a clubs in-order to gain a status not for the liking of the music; a poser; someone who poses to be something they are not
Mike went to the show dressed in his favorite Hot Topic clothes and stood outside and talked to all of the band members, got their autographs and bragged about it for the next year; he was so scene.

a word used to describe kids of a certain music genre like hhard core or emo. usually they have choppy black hair, tight little kid shirts and tight girl pants. they go to local shows NOT "concerts". they call themselves "tuff" and sometimes talk like they're ghetto. they seem obnoxious and snobby but usually they are very nice people. just dont mess with them. they'll beat you up.

but sometimes kids outside the scene use it instead of cool. but those kids are just posers. like the other fags that wrote below me and dissed the scene. they probably either a) need midol or b) werent accepted by the scene and they're solving their teen angst problems by bad mouthing me and my friends on this website.
poser-like oh ehm geez! you are sooo scene!!

scene is a fashion statement. most scene people also try to act hardcore with the keyboard and come at people over the internet. just like all the people cutting down scene people on urbandictionary do. they use this site to come at people. say it to their face. cause its "ommfffggzz sO sCene" to act hardcore with the keyboard. KTHXBAI.

Scene kids are a cheaper version of 'emo'.
They compete over who has the tightest jeans.
Both sexes wear neon coloured eyeshadows and big eyeliner.
Scene girls love polka dots, stripes, and checks.
They wear plastic headbands and bows in their hair.
Scene Hair is cut in short, like a mullet, short at the back and long at the front, choppy style with bangs straight across their eyes, or sometimes they just have a side parting with a fringe covering one eye.
They dye their hair obscene colours.
Hair is mostly black. Dark brown is accepted. And platinum blonde.
Random parts of hair are bleached red, pink, blonde, etc.
They wear loads of fake pearls and beads.
Scene guys wear tight ass band t-shirts, mostly of bands no one has heard of, because it makes them look 'original' and 'more scene' then their friends.
Their jeans, named 'skinny jeans', 'tights', 'girl pants', or 'drainpipes', are tighter then the scene girls.
They claim to be 'bisexual', when most of them are lying, because scene girls think it's 'hawt' that they make out with guys.
Stripey fingerless gloves are also in.
They wear bandanas around their neck, in a back pocket, in hair, or covering their lower face.
Every scene kid MUST own a pair of Converse or Vans slip ons because they're 'oldschool'.
Scene kids listen to techno remixes and theme tunes like Pokemon and Powerangers.
Scenekids must have a myspace. They have backgrounds of robots, pirates, dinosaurs, stars, and hearts, because it makes them 'cool'.
They take 1,000 + pictures of themselves. They photoshop their pictures to make them black and white and then they add a caption, and lyrics.
They love internet hearts, '<3'.
They use words/sayings such as: OMFG, rad, sweet, smex, teh sex, dollface, luff, heart.
Made up words are good: 'hella tight', 'prittyhead', 'bootyfull', 'mazing'.
They say: 'OMFGz I'm Lyk Soooo Ugli'. Then they post a bulletin on myspace telling everyone to 'comment their new pictures kthanxbye'. Pictures are of themselves (of course) taken from above, at an angle, or in some form of mirror.
They're often making the 'peace' sign in their pictures, sometimes the 'rock sign', sometimes mouth open in a 'rawr' guesture, mouth twisted to the side, eyes looking to the side as if shocked, hand covering mouth, sometimes they're swearing, because it makes them hardXcore.
They also write 'signs' and take pictures of themselves holding the signs, which will say things like:
'Joey is teh sex! ILYx<3'
They add bands they've never heard of on myspace 'LYK OMFGZZZZZZ YOU GUYS RAWK MY SOCKS I LYK LUFF YOU KTHANXBYE'.
They love to talk 'gangstur'.
'Waddup nigger, omfg, yoo gehy'. After saying this, they claim not to be racist or a homophobe.
Most scene kids claim to be in a band. Some of them are the lead singers/screamers of their band. Bands have ridiculous names such as: 'My Everydying Razorblade Lust'. You get the picture. Long, stupid, pointless names.
Scene kids get offended when they're called 'emo' or 'goth' and they claim: 'Don't label me, I'm not emo or scene k? I'm just me'.
Whatever, you bunch of cuntfucks.
I get labelled as emo and scene all the time, and it pisses me off.
