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.

1. Unintelligent high school age children who pretend to actually know something about music despite the fact that they have never picked up a musical instrument, nor have they composed a song in their entire existence.

They spend all of their free time outside of school at this horrid place called "the mall" doing drugs with their friends, talking to their twenty-two year old faggot ringleader while he "works so god-damn hard" at Sam Goody for $7.25 an hour. Many of them also use this time to break up with one another, cry over it, and then "lose it" in a big storm of angst-ridden bravado to impress the Sam Goody guy. see also faggot

2. People who name-drop bands but don't own any of their albums. Having them on your IPOD or burning the CD still does not count because you are a grab-ass piece of shit who will not support the artist.
1. This girl Charly and her boyfriend that I sent to the hospital. He was only 16....

2. xIxMxQuEeRcOrEx: OMG, I totally love underOATH... but G.B.H is teh sex!

fuckyouwithaknife: Really? Do you prefer G.B.H's City Baby Attacked By Rats or Ha Ha?

xIxMxQuEeRcOrEx: Uh, I just like, downloaded some of their, like songs off of the like, net because I like, saw Lars Frederiksen wearing their shirt in like, the liner notes for his like, self-titled album with the bastards. Like, Sam Goody doesn't like, carry their CDs so like, I've never like, heard those albums and stuff.

Scene is simply the new name for emo, but with a twist. The difference between Emo and Scene is that scenesters know that they are faggots and need a myspace filled with trillions of angle-shots and blackness to be hXc and fit in with all those other little douche bags. Emo kids do not know that they are stupid and have no life at all, they just think they look cool from dressing in black and having cut marks on their wrists in the shape of an X, to show that they're "straight edge".

In other words, scene is basically someone cutting their wrists and dieing their hair to look like a skunks back(not to mention, they smell like shit too because they believe greasy hair and not taking showers for centuries will help them fit into the "scene"). If you see a scenester, I highly suggest that you kick them as hard as you can.

The most common type of "scene" is that of those defined as "emo". And what's crap is that everyone on here defines them as camera whores, wrist slitters, and overall mean, selfish, fashion centered hypocrites. Really, they go to local shows, have their choppy/platinum blonde/black/dyed hair and wear tight band shirts, tight jeans, and shoes with the tongues sticking out. <3 Amd, yes, they do use 'kthnxbye'. So, go choke and die.
I'm a scenes star, so go choke and die. kthnxbye
