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.

What emo kids call themselves, because it is part of an emo kid's nature to continually deny that they are emo. So the emos of the world made up "Scene," which is the exact same thing, only with a possibly more emo word. Fuckin' emos.
SCENE = EMO. Don't let the emos fool you, it's exactly the same thing.

Scene is not about "cute" bows, wild hair, and myspace pictures. It is about the music and supporting your local SCENE. Supid little "scene" sluts try to take the scene for exactly what it is not... a fashionstatement. The scene is about the music and nothing more. STOP BEING PUSSIES AND RUINING IT YOU DUMB BITCHES.
going to shows and actually watching the bands and support the music scene....not sitting outside prettending to smoke a cig

People, mostly teenagers, in which the boys wear tight girl jeans, have jet black, extremely spiky hair, and wear either bright colored tee-shirts, or black bands tee-shirts. Scene boys are often Bisexual, and most wear eyeliner and any kind of make-up. Scene girls have very volumized, very colorful and choppy hair, wear tight skinny jeans, and colorful t-shirts, as well as colorful hair bows, and bright, often neon colored eye make-up. Scene kids usually have bad taste in music, such as Brokencyde, Blood On The Dancefloor, The Devil Wears Prada, Bring Me The Horizon, sometimes even Lil' Wayne, Miley Cyrus, and the Jonas Brothers. They are usually very active on social networking sites, mostly Myspace, with depressing screen names, usually containing multiple X's before and after every word. Most have a fetish for cupcakes, skittles,rainbows, pandas, or dinosaurs. Personality wise, some people find them very annoying, ignorant, and/or stupid.
Scene Girl: Omfg, i wuvv dinos and cuppycakes and wittle pandas! Y4Y!!!

Scene Boy: Omg, same here:D and i wuvvvv wainbows tew!!!!

1. The one word that people just have to make as many definitions for as the words Jesus, America, and George Bush.
Urban Dictionary has way too many entries for Scene, Emo, and Jesus.

Unique to its own location (ie: NYC, LA, DC, London, Berlin) a scene is something people are involved in, that (in a majority) involves a common interest like music.

Being involved includes going to shows and organizing events.

I think the definition for scene as "A sphere of activity" quite accuarately reflects the scenes.

Some scenes: LA's Deathrock scene, London's infamous Blitz Kids scene.
You call yourself punk but you don't support the scene!

A style for kids around under 25, they have black hair covering the front and spiked in the back. Blonde streaks in the front, or blonde in back and black in front works. Girls and guys like dinosaurs and robots and aeroplanes and elecro terms. They wear flashy sunglasses and tight jeans for guys and girls. Converse taylors or vans slip on shoes only. White studded belts and tight shirts with collars over tight bands tees .. Scene kids like neon colors, and go to concerts with their friends. Girls wear bows and clips in their hair like when they were little.
" Hey wanna go to the bloodbrothers concert tommorow?"

" Sure, since we're scene and cool, kk bye"

PS I'M SCENE, AND ITS COOL //

Scene/Scenester/Scene Kid is a person who is associated with the MUSIC SCENE, usually being hardcore/punk rock type music. Pays close attention to the latest fashion trends and usually tries to make it their own. Usually has a myspace featuring dinosaurs guns etc. Sometimes they are very elitist especially to youths who copy their personal styles.

Apearence: Tight band shirts, shirts with random pictures on them like bright dinosaurs and guns, tight girl pants, bandanas around neck and wrists, converse or skate shoes, choppy self-cut hair many times dyed/streaked, hoodies, no hats, bright colors, piercings, www.hottopic.com for most scene clothing examples

Music: Scenesters/Scene Kids are all about the music! they LOVE music with a PASSION and know tons of underground bands and listen to almost anything as long as its not too "mainstream" or too "pop/country"

Attitude: Scenesters/Scene Kids are very happy, have very high self-esteem, are very RANDOM, care alot about personal appearance, are very social, and are very stuck up, and love random things like dinasours and robots, guns and stars and whales, mudkips

Activities: Shows/Parties/Myspace where they have tons of friends, finding new music

Negativity1: Many Scenesters/Scene Kids are said to be posers, lack originality, try-hard to look like their favorite band. BUT you can say the same for ALL stereotypes, the hiphop, punk, goth, metal, jock, prep, harajuku, weeaboo, furry, pretty much any fashion following stereotypes out there

Negativity2: Others mistake Scene for Emo but they are NOT the same. Emo kids are so sad to the point of killing themselves or atleast act like it. and Emocore don't wear girl pants
SceneSchelle: SUP NIG
Anonymous: POOLS CLOSED DUE TO AIDS!
SceneSchelle: LYEK OMFG I WENT TO THIS SHOW &&OMFG NI99A IT WAS HELLA TIGHTT.
Anonymous: So i herd you liek MUDKIPS
SceneSchelle: OMFG you know i am nigga. UR so radd. (:
