An infamous, loathed teen subculture on the Internet.
- First Found: Early 2000s
Scene is a subculture that largely grew out of Emo and Goth on the internet. Unlike Emo, Scene largely follows popular clothing "trends" though it does take certain aspects from Emo. The Emo aspects can be seen in the large amounts of Hot Topic's worn or tight skinny jeans/shirts. This is then accented by crazy hair colors, large 80's style hairdos, and lots and lots of sometimes seizure-inducing colors.
Scene and emo both share some common elements of fashion, hair, and other similarities. Calling a scenester an emo will result in anger. You'll most likely do this, as no normal person can tell them apart by looks. Scene is quite possibly the single worst subculture of all time. It takes guidos, emo, hipsters, furries, grunge and a load of others, puts them into a blender, clashes them together and becomes an unsettling, unsavory, stupid-looking, ugly idiotic mess that looks not only like they have been thrown up by a pink unicorn while dressing up in a fur coat made out of big-bird covered in paint, but also makes anyone with an IQ of more than about seven reflect on everything wrong with modern society and quite possibly lose faith in humanity altogether.
While not necessary to all, most of Scene relates violence and gore juxtaposed (not that Scene kids know what that word means) with something of a cute or bubbly nature possibly inspired by cartoons like Happy Tree Friends or Invader Zim. Like Emo, it was supposed to represent individuality in styles of clothing and music, but has largely dissolved into following bland trends like any other subculture involving teenagers. This can range from what band is cool to what hair color is the new black.
The "trendiest" Scene kids are placed higher on the Scene hierarchy that all of the sub-genre must obey. At the very top of this hierarchy is Jeffree Star, and below that are Scene bands or level 60+ Scene Queens/Kings. Next is the fan or groupie of the band and lower level Scene Queens/Kings. Below that are Scene Kids, which are Scene Queens/Kings but just not at the same level of popularity with which they can start trends. At the very bottom are the "Fakers", or the struggling plebeian in Scene terms.
The life goal of every Scene kid is to become a "Scene King/Queen" by trying to have 2000+ friends on Myspace or Facebook, or by becoming "friends" with all the other kids in the mall. Do note that Jeffree Star is much like a Shogun or Pope in the hierarchy, and can only be replaced in the event of his death, violent revolt, or an approved heir.
Due to the Scene Pope's own violent attitude, as well as the Scene Vatican's perceived and actual "violent" attitude, it is followed through the rest of the subculture. Thus Scene is most often populated by "aggressive" kids with a "Haters gonna hate" attitude. But when the aforementioned "Haters" do hate, things rather quickly fall apart into a mess of screaming and crying on the scene kid's part in a classic internet tough guy formula. An easy way to spot a scene kid is to see if they have a misspelled user name (such spelling something with a "K" instead of a "C"), if they have a formalistic name of real name first then some drug-related or violence related word (ex. Destiny Detox, Kiki Kannibal), or if their Myspace page has alternating black and light colors with a "Hipstamatic" touch.
Scene is most infamous for causing musical plagues that branch out into the internet in massive quantities such as Blood on the Dance Floor and Jeffree Star, who play a "Crunkcore" style (essentially the 00's version of rap-metal). Other "Crunkcore" bands are Attack Attack!, 3OH!3, and BrokenCYDE.
Scene is a subculture that was created when large masses of emos congregated on VampireFreaks and Myspace. It was then popularized by Kiki Kannibal and Jeffree Star, and then spread with teenage girls and boys who were trying to be "unique".
Still exists today, but is largely only popular with young girls in high school. The fall of MySpace killed a large part of the subculture. Unfortunately, it is slowly coming back in countries like Britain, and needs to be stopped.
- Scene kids lurk on sites such as MySpace and YouTube in immense quantities.
- They are not the same as emos, yet they will quickly switch back if trolled.
- Scenekids are basically IRL camwhores.
