Scene (subculture)

The scene subculture is a youth subculture that emerged during the early 2000s in the United States from the pre-existing emo subculture.[1] The subculture became popular with adolescents from the mid-2000s[2] to early 2010s. Members of the scene subculture are referred to as scene kids, trendies, or scenesters.[3] Scene fashion consists of skinny jeans, bright colored clothing, a signature hairstyle consisting of straight, flat hair with long fringes covering their forehead, and bright colored hair dye.[4] Music genres associated with the scene subculture include metalcore, crunkcore, deathcore, electronic music, and pop punk.[5][6]

Members of the scene subculture in 2008

From the mid-2000s to early 2010s, scene fashion gained popularity among teens and the music associated with the subculture achieved commercial success in both the underground and the mainstream. Groups like Bring Me the Horizon, Asking Alexandria, Pierce the Veil, and Metro Station garnered mainstream attention and large audiences while still largely being tied to the scene subculture. In the mid-late 2010s, the scene subculture lost popularity; however, since 2019, there have been movements that have given it a slight revival.[7]
